A Gravel Rally Debut for the Subaru Parts Online Car
Watch out, there’ll be another Subaru speeding through the New England Forest Rally this year — a 2016 Super Production class WRX STI presented by Subaru Parts Online. Driver Bucky Lasek and co-driver Rhianon Gelsomino will be making their gravel rally debut in New England on July 15 in the Subaru Parts Online car.
Made up of 100 miles of dirt and gravel logging roads, the New England Forest Rally is one of six National Championship rallies in the United States. The two-day national competition is held along the Maine and New Hampshire border.
Lasek last drove for Subaru Parts Online in the 2016 Sno*Drift Rally, which was also his debut with the Subaru Rally Team USA.
Of course, we’ll all be thrilled to see the Subaru Parts Online-outfitted STI tearing through the forest come July 15. It’s not often that a SimplePart-powered parts program is represented on a rally car, and we’re hoping that it’ll bring more awareness to the success of national online parts programs like Subaru’s.
“There have been times I’ve sat in the rain, snow and wind to see cars I didn’t know zoom past,” said SimplePart CEO and founder Cole Getzler. “It’s great to watch for a car represented by a program I support and believe in.”
