Hig­gins and Drew set to miss open­ing Rally Amer­ica snow round

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

David Hig­gins will miss the open­ing round of Rally Amer­ica with his team elect­ing to skip the event.

The Manx­man – along with Bri­tish co-driver Craig Drew – has won ev­ery event he has fin­ished in Rally Amer­ica go­ing back to the penul­ti­mate round of the 2013 se­ries. Subaru Rally Team USA has, how­ever, elected not to en­ter the Michi­gan opener.

Hig­gins is ex­pected to tackle six Amer­i­can rounds this year as part of a wider pro­gramme of events.

“It’ll be strange to miss Sn­odrift,” he said, hav­ing won the snow round for the last two years, “but we have a plan with the team this year that will make the whole thing quite ex­cit­ing. It looks like I might be do­ing more events and dif­fer­ent events, in­clud­ing some more ral­ly­cross, which is re­ally ex­cit­ing.”

Hig­gins has won the Rally Amer­ica ti­tle for the last five years with Subaru’s Im­preza WRX STI.
