About David Higgins
- David got his first taste of motorsport in motorcycle trials when he was just eight years old.  By age ten he had moved into national kart racing and won seven titles.  At his first opportunity, David started rallying and was invited to drive in the team that Richard Burns drove for in the Peugeot 205 Challenge. He went on to win the 1997, 1999 and 2002 British Rally Championship in the Group N Class.  In 2002, he also came to America as a privateer and won the SCCA Pro Rally Championship (Now known as Rally America) while driving a Subaru.  He repeated his success in 2003 winning six events and again claiming the SCCA Pro Rally Championship.  For 2004, David went back to Britain and became the British Rally Champion.  David also began rallying in the ultra-competitive Chinese Rally Championship in 2004 where he helped his team win the Team Championship in 2004, 2007 and 2009.  Most recently, David signed for Subaru Rally Team USA and earned the 2011 Rally America National Championship title in his first season with the team, earned a bronze medal at X Games 17 in Rally Car Racing, and set the record time for the prestigious Mount Washington Hill Climb in his 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI rally car. http://www.subaru.com/enthusiasts/rally/drivers/david-higgins/index.html

About Sverre Isachsen- Sverre Isachsen, also referred to as The Viking Warrior, has been a motorsport addict all his life. It all started with local autocross and rallycross events in his native Norway where he enjoyed great success. He made his European RallyCross Champoinship debut in 2002 and was a top contender from day one. In 2009 the competition was unable to keep up and Sverre Isachsen's domination of the ERC series began. For three years (2009-2011) Sverre won the European RallyCross Championship. With the introduction of the Subaru Puma RallyCross Team in 2012, Sverre has signed on to pilot the #11 Subaru Impreza WRX STI at the Global RallyCross events. http://www.subaru.com/enthusiasts/rally/drivers/sverre-isachsen/index.html

About Bucky Lasek- Bucky Lasek is considered one of the world s most consistent vert skateboarder and has won 12 X Games medals, six of which have been gold. Lasek is no stranger to the world of automotive racing though and  has competed in the Mustang Challenge series as well as a handful of Porsche Cup races.  In 2011 he began rally training at Dirtfish Rally School where he honed his all-wheel drive skills behind the wheel of a Subaru WRX STI. Bucky signed with the Subaru PUMA RallyCross Team in 2012 with the mindset of further developing his skills from his more experienced teammates. http://rally.subaru.com/rallyteam.html#bucky
