Subaru driver, David Higgins, Defeats Mother Nature and Rivals to take Victory at the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood

Salem, MO., February 25, 2013 - Subaru Rally Team USA driver David Higgins overcame the mud, snow, and ice that saturated the 2013 Rally in the 100 Acre Wood to take a dominating win in his 2013 Subaru WRX STI rally car. Set in Missouri’s Ozark Foothills, the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood is the second round of the 2013 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. With maximum traction delivered by Subaru’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive over the difficult terrain, Higgins drove faultlessly, while his key rivals hit trouble early, to win by nearly nine minutes, and vault to the lead of the Driver’s Championship standings.
