Pastrana/Edstrom sign new contract with Subaru and are headed to WRC
Burlington, VT - Subaru Rally Team USA announced today that it will enter its 23 year-old star rally driver, Travis Pastrana, in select World Rally Championship events in 2007, 2008 and 2009. In addition to defending his Rally America title in 2007, Pastrana will drive a Subaru Impreza WRX STI–based rally car in three World Rally Championship (WRC) events in the Group N class. Then in 2008 and 2009 SRT-USA will officially enter Pastrana in the Production World Rally Championship (P-WRC), a support series that runs concurrent with the top tier World Rally Championship. Christian will be co-driving for Travis in both the 2007 Rally America Championship, and also in the selected WRC events.
Earlier in the month, Travis and Christian wrapped up another victory at the rain-shortened Wild West Rally on December 1-3, 2006 in Olympia, WA. Patrick Richard and Mark Williams took 2nd and SRTUSA teammates Ken Block and Alex Gelsomino took 3rd place and 2nd place in the 2007 Rally America championship.
