Subaru Australia have today confirmed that reigning Australian and Asia-Pacific Champion Possum Bourne will step up from his 1998 Impreza WRCar to Juha Kankkunen's Rally of Great Britain P2000.

"It's a two year step forward from the car we've used for the last two seasons," stated Bourne from his Pukekohe based workshop. "The new car is going to make it a real challenge, which provides plenty of motivation for everybody!"

Subaru's P2000, debuted at last year's Portugal Rally in the hands of Richard Burns and Juha Kankkunen, incorporated two years of development and design revision by Prodrive. Although similar in external appearance to it's precursors the WRC98 and WRC99, 90% of the car's components were changed.
