Higgins and Drew set to miss opening Rally America snow round
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.
