Prodrive will be celebrating two decades of world rallying success with Subaru through a commemorative display at the Autosport International show, 8 – 11 January 2009 at Birmingham’s NEC.


Adjacent to the main Prodrive stand in Hall 19, the display will let fans get under the skin of Subaru’s rallying icons, from the inaugural Subaru Legacy to the Imprezas of the team’s three World Champions.

A book of memories will also be presented on the stand in which fans can share their experiences and thoughts about the team.

On display will be Ari Vatanen’s 1992 Subaru Legacy RS, the iconic 1996 Subaru Impreza 555 of Colin McRae, Richard Burns’ Subaru Impreza WRC2000 and the most recent Subaru Impreza WRC2008 of Petter Solberg.

In its 20 years of competition, the team won 46 rallies, three Manufacturers’ World Championships and three Drivers’ World Championships and, through characters like the late Colin McRae, played a significant role in bringing the World Rally Championship to households the world over.

Members of the team will be on hand throughout the four days to answer any questions and share their own experiences of Prodrive’s and Subaru’s iconic rallying partnership.
