Subaru PUMA RallyCross Team Back In Action at X Games Munich
The Subaru PUMA RallyCross Team began their pursuit of the 2013 Global RallyCross Championship (GRC) last weekend at X Games Munich. The belated debut came after the previous round at X Games Barcelona was cancelled due to extreme weather conditions. Drivers Bucky Lasek, Dave Mirra and Sverre Isachsen returned to pilot their nearly 600hp ’13 Subaru PUMA WRX STI Rallycross cars head-to-head against a bevy of international stars on a short mixed surface track at the FrottmaRing near Munich's Alliance Arena. After the cancellation of the Barcelona round, GRC officials created an additional race to last weekend's Munich competition schedule, creating a double-header. Each event features its own practice and qualifying sessions. Both events count for full points in the GRC standings, and X Games will award medals for each round.
