James Han: “With the recently formed Global Rallycross Championship, we jumped in with our all-new Subaru PUMA RallyCross Team anchored by three drivers in Sverre [Isachsen], Dave [Mirra], and Bucky [Lasek].
“Realistically, we knew that developing 550+ hp WRX STIs to compete against teams with years of experience in cars already fully developed in the European Rallycross Championship would prove challenging. Intensive development and testing have been staples for this program, with our goal for 2013 to better position our team for wins and podiums.”
Dave Mirra: “The 2012 season was a learning year for everyone. We know what we need to do, so I’m really looking forward to 2013.”
“Really excited for a fresh start. We have a great crew, so I’m looking forward to what is to come.”
“Bucky just opened my eyes to the importance of a simulator race seat. I’m excited to put in some miles this winter.”
“Nothing over the top, but what is important to me on race day is having confidence with myself and the car. This is so much fun so that is the goal.
“What an opportunity Subaru, PUMA, Vermont SportsCar, and Monster have given me!”
“No. Not yet. If I win a few consecutive races back to back, that might change. Kidding.
“We are a simple group, and I like it that way.”
Either, but I’ll go with dry to really get the full rallycross experience. LOL.”
