Subaru PUMA RallyCross Team is in sunny California for X Games 18. The famed action sports event takes place in downtown Los Angeles from June 28th to July 1st.
For the past two days, the team has been offsite testing and fine-tuning their Subaru WRX STI RallyCross cars. Bucky Lasek was handed a brand new full-spec machine this week after proving himself more than capable in a slightly lower-performance version of the Vermont SportsCar-prepared vehicle. Lasek was ecstatic after his first drive in the new car and can't wait to put it to the test in competition. Dave Mirra and Sverre Isachsen spent their test days fine-tuning suspension settings and other car configurations. Both Mirra and Isachsen have competed in X Games RallyCross before and are excited to get back into the action.
The iconic X Games RallyCross jump is being finalized for a practice session this afternoon between 4 and 6 PM adjacent to the Staples Center.
