In November, Pastrana competed in the Wales Rally GB, but he did not fare as well as he had in the other two WRC events. He only managed to finish 21st in the production class.
While Pastrana was competing in the United Kingdom, a new face in the North American rally world was making his debut in a Subaru Impreza fielded by Vermont SportsCar at a rally in Canada. Dave Mirra, who had won the most gold medals in the X Games, had gotten the rally bug largely thanks to his friendship with Pastrana and Block. His goal was to get experience and then compete in the 2008 Rally America National Championship.
In the next issue we will continue the history of the super successful SRT USA with a look back at the 2008 Rally America National Championship season, the third running of the X Games Rally competition, and the debut of Dave Mirra as a member of SRT USA.
