Subaru PUMA RallyCross Team Hosts Fans at Charity Event

  • Written on:

What happens when you get a bunch of Subaru and RallyCross fans together for a good cause? A few hours of good 'ole fashioned driving fun, with of course, some Subaru PUMA RallyCross excitement.

Participants of the 12th annual 48 Hours of Tristate Drive to benefit the American Cancer Society made a stop at Vermont Sports Car in Burlington, Vermont to get an inside look at how the Subaru PUMA RallyCross team is prepping for the upcoming 2013 racing season.

A PUMA Forester making the drive stood at the entrance, letting everyone know where to go and what would be in store for them. Various pieces of each driver's car were scattered around the shop for everyone to look at, and fans were treated to a show as portions of a race car were cut and adjusted. Videos of the drivers taking jumps and navigating corners from the previous year's races were played on screens throughout the shop.

The highlight of this stop, just one of many on the charity drive, was to give away some highly coveted Subaru PUMA RallyCross apparel and some signed posters by driver Dave Mirra. In order to receive these items, the fans had to answer some very specific questions about the drivers and the cars.

While a good number of fans easily guessed what Dave's other sporting and fitness pastime was other than BMX (hint: It involves some quick moves just like Rocky Balboa), only one diehard fan was able to guess correctly where Sverre Isachsen is from (and no, the answer is not Switzerland).

It can definitely be said that at the end of their visit, every participant had been officially transformed into a ZombieCat. Don't believe us? See for yourself!
