Unstoppable Higgins Continues US Domination!

Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, USA -- Four consecutive wins is an achievement in any form of motorsport, but for a private team competing against the might of three manufacturers it is incredible.

David Higgins and Daniel Barritt, driving the AV Sport Subaru, won the STPR rally, the fifth round in the US series, over the weekend after another flawless drive. Improvements to the car, including the latest Proflex suspension, enabled Higgins to control the rally from the front, leading from the 2nd stage to the finish.

"The fast roads on this event were fantastic and the car ran faultlessly," commented a delighted Higgins, who now has a 28-point lead (unofficial) in the series.

Shane Mitchell, driving a new AV Sport prepared Impreza, had a trouble free run to finish 2nd in Group N.

Coverage of STPR will air on SpeedChannel, Thursday, August 8th. The next round of the SCCA ProRally series is the Maine Forest Rally, July 26 & 27.
