The Subaru Road Racing Team is campaigned by ICY Racing/Phoenix Performance, which is co-owned by partners Dave Rosenblum and Joe Aquilante. Both men are race drivers with decades of experience between them.
As the factory team effort in 2005, SRRT consisted of three Subaru Impreza WRX STi racers – Dave Rosenblum, Chuck Hemmingson, and Kristian Skavnes – brought together under the ICY/Phoenix umbrella. Hemmingson and Skavnes secured 1st and 2nd places in class at the SCCA Runoffs that year – a feat repeated in 2006.
The 2006 season also saw SRRT test a Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Wagon in Grand-Am. Three races were enough to prove the Legacy platform competitive, and SRRT entered six of the 2007 Grand-Am KONI Challenge Series ST Class races with Legacy 2.5 GT spec.B sedans. Hemmingson and Skavnes drove #111, and Rosenblum teamed with veteran racer Davy Jones in #141.
For 2008, SRRT expects to campaign in at least seven of the KONI Challenge Series events – Daytona International Speedway, Lime Rock Park, Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Watkins Glen International, Iowa Speedway, Thunderbolt Raceway at New Jersey Motorsports Park, and the season finale at Virginia International Raceway. Andrew Aquilante takes over from Davy Jones in the #141.
