With the Asia-Pacific Rally Championship season starting in just over two months, the Motor Image team has confirmed that it will return with new shaped Subaru Imprezas for current champion Cody Crocker and a yet to be named new second driver.

Rumours are rife as to the identity of Motor Image's new driver and an announcement is expected sometime soon.

The MI team have been busy with testing through the off-season, with another test scheduled in Malaysia next month. Their first event will be Rally Queensland in May.

CUSCO have confirmed their entry in 2009, but the big change there is that the team will switch to Mitsubishi Evo 10's.

While CUSCO have been strongly linked to Subarus for many years, they are an after-market parts manufacturer, manufacturing and selling parts for all makes, so switching to Mitsubishi can only enhance and broaden their image.

CUSCO's drivers and programme is yet to be finalised, but one driver out of the frame is Dean Herridge. Herridge did a great job for the team in 2008, winning the inaugural APRC Pacific Cup, but his strong Subaru links preclude him driving Mitsubishis for the team in 2009. The Australian does have a programme in the 2009 China Rally Championship.
