SUBARU RALLY TEAM SPAIN

Subaru Spain will have an official presence in both the Spanish Tarmac and Gravel Rally Championships for 2009 where they will be represented by a new team, SUBARU RALLY TEAM SPAIN.

The project includes participation in both of the national rally series competing with a three driver line-up driving the new Subaru Impreza - Prodrive 2009, group N. The program also looks to the participation in two events outside Spain, rounds of the World Rally Championship and the Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC).

The drivers already confirmed for the SUBARU RALLY TEAM SPAIN will be the recently proclaimed Spanish Rally Champion, Enrique Garcia Ojeda (the former Junior World Rally Champion and Subaru works driver in the 2008 WRC), Brice Tirabassi, and the young Mario Ceballos, one of the most promising from the inexhaustible Cantabrian breeding ground. Ojeda and Ceballos will be competing in the events counting towards the tarmac series at the wheel of the Subaru Impreza - Prodrive 2009, whereas Brice Tirabassi will take part in the gravel rallies with another new model from the manufacturer.

The technical structure of the team will be in the charge of KRS Motor Events, a company with wide experience in the preparation and maintenance of rally cars. The SUBARU RALLY TEAM SPAIN will, in addition, rely on the direct assistance from PRODRIVE. The collaboration between the SUBARU RALLY TEAM SPAIN and PRODRIVE will include the development of the Subaru Impreza - Prodrive 2009, group N, with both Enrique Garcia Ojeda and Brice Tirabassi being the official test drivers in charge of the testing program for the new car.
