The Hobart based Stratton Finance rally duo of Beau Johnson and Arron Saunders will step up to the PRC class in a new Subaru WRX STI Spec C for September 9’s Weld Logic Southern Safari. Based out of Southport in Tasmania’s south, after stepping onto gravel from previously only competing in tarmac rallies and circuit racing, the pair were eager to make the step up from the one make Buckby Subaru RS Challenge “We had the car sitting here ready to take on Targa Tasmania, but the birth of a baby girl around that time put a stop to the campaign,” Johnson said.
“So we thought ‘why not get some use out of the car, step up to something a bit faster and see how we go against the big boys”.
The team are under no illusion as to their pace for the weekend and are primarily using the event as a test session and to get used to the extra power and grip of a turbo 4WD Subaru. “We’ll have no real interest in times, although it would be nice to beat some of the RS Challenge cars we have just stepped out of, but we’ll have to wait and see,” Johnson added. Event details are available at www.tasrally.com.au or from the Southport Hotel.
