Subaru/Higgins Win 100-Acre Wood Rally

Sep 17, 2013

Subaru Rally Team USA driver David Higgins overcame the mud, snow, and ice that saturated the ’13 Rally in the 100-Acre Wood to take a dominating win in his ’13 Subaru WRX STI rally car. Set in Missouri’s Ozark Foothills, the Rally in the 100-Acre Wood is the second round of the ’13 Rally America National Championship and is regarded as the fastest rally in the USA. However, this year a winter storm blanketed the region in a layer of ice and snow, making conditions treacherous at best.

Higgins took the rally lead early on the first day of competition when his two key rivals faltered due to driving mistakes and mechanical trouble. Higgins and his co-driver, Craig Drew, steadily increased their lead throughout the event as their ’13 Vermont SportsCar–prepared Subaru WRX STI ran trouble free throughout the weekend; Higgins and Drew were fastest on 12 of the event’s 16 stages.

“I started the rally a little slow but upped the pace from stage two and was just trying to keep close to the lead to be ready for an attack on day one’s night stages. As it turned out, though, our rivals fell into deep trouble before that, and from there onward, it was just a case of keeping my focus and driving mistake free,” explained Higgins. “The conditions were very difficult, but we had the right car and setup to deal with it.”
