Isachsen Returns to Subaru for Third Global Rallycross Season
Norwegian rallycross star Sverre Isachsen has announced that he will return to Global Rallycross for the upcoming 2014 season. He will once again compete in the #11 Subaru WRX STI under the Subaru PUMA Rallycross Team banner.
Isachsen joined Global Rallycross in 2012, fresh off a three-year streak of European championships. In his first season, he earned his first GRC podium in the season’s penultimate round at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Last year, Isachsen earned two podium finishes in seven days, at X Games Los Angeles and Atlanta Motor Speedway, on the way to a seventh place finish in the Drivers’ Championship.
The Subaru PUMA Rallycross Team, the rallycross wing of Vermont SportsCar, has fielded Isachsen, Bucky Lasek, Dave Mirra, and David Higgins in its two years of full-time Global Rallycross competition. Last season, the team led Subaru to a second place finish in the Global Rallycross Manufacturer’s Championship. Isachsen will be joined by longtime X Games veteran Travis Pastrana for the series’ marquee round at X Games Austin in June.
