Prodrive WRC car will compete in the Scooby Sprint Championship
The team responsible for building Subaru’s World Rally Championship cars for the past decade, Prodrive, has announced that they will be campaigning a Subaru Impreza WRC2008 in the Scooby Sprint Championship. The Prodrive built rally car will certainly be a benchmark for the competition.
A word from Prodrive Team Principal David Lapworth after the jump.
The 2009 Scooby Sprint Championship allows privateer road car owners to compete against the clock and against the Prodrive Subaru Impreza WRC2008.
The Prodrive Impreza WRC2008 is fundamentally the same car used by the Subaru World Rally Team last season. “We have only been able to make minor changes to the car because of homologation restrictions, with the most significant difference being the Ohlins dampers,” said Prodrive technical director, David Lapworth. “In a perfect world, Marcus would have had far more time behind the wheel, however, with his years of experience, I am absolutely confident he will very quickly find a rhythm in the Impreza.”
"Scooby Sprint is a great concept. The Subaru community has been a fervent supporter of Prodrive and rallying for nearly two decades so it’s great to be able to show our thanks to them by competing with one of our latest specification Impreza World Rally Cars. We are fully aware that there are some very highly tuned Imprezas out there and we know every one of them will be aiming to beat us. But let’s be clear, we are not coming along for the ride."
