Higgins Edges Closer to Championship

BEMIDJI, Minnesota, USA -- David Higgins has moved another step closer to the U.S. title with a 2nd place overall finish at the Ojibwe Forest ProRally.

Following the retirement of Factory Subaru driver Mark Lovell, Higgins drove sensibly to his sixth consecutive podium finish, almost three minutes clear of 3rd place finisher Paul Choiniere. With only two events remaining, it is not possible for any team to beat AV Sportís incredible record of four victories in a row.

"The car ran fantastically over the weekend and we are hoping to maintain our consistency for the final two events of the Championship," commented Higgins.

Seamus Burke drove AV Sportís Group N Subaru to an incredible 5th place overall (1st in Group N) in a one-off drive, his best result of the season.

Coverage of the Ojibwe Forest Rally will air on SpeedChannel, Thursday, October 3rd. The next round of the SCCA ProRally series is the Wild West International Rally, September 7th & 8th.
