We love 'em and today we are entering the rally circuit with our official sponsorship of Global Rallycross Championship. With that, also comes a great partnership with Subaru to form the Subaru PUMA Rallycross Team. Combining PUMA and Subaru's strong histories in motorsport and our collective following across sport and lifestyle, we're anticipating one hell of a season!
PUMA entered the motorsport game a few years ago and has since been making high performance racewear for drivers all over the world and lifestyle motorsport collections for fans and enthusiasts alike. With this new partnership, Global Rallycross is bringing PUMA Motorsport to a whole new audience, and we couldn't be more excited about it!
The Subaru PUMA Rallycross Team is the factory backed rally team for Subaru of America managed by Subaru technical partner Vermont SportsCar. The all star team is lead by BMX legend and professional Rally athlete Dave Mirra and joining him are a few global rockstars from the action sports and GRC worlds...you'll have to watch the video to find out!
Designed with speed in mind, the team will be competing in 2012 Subaru WRX STI rally cars that have a fresh new look for Rallycross featuring a unique Zombie Cat graphic. And we're bringing a fun and colorful design esthetic that when mixed with the adrenaline of the sport is sure to excite drivers, fans and spectators alike. The team will sport official fireproof PUMA racing suits emblemized with Zombie Cat graphics and a new performance racing shoe called the PRX Subaru.
PUMA will release lifestyle footwear, tees and accessories inspired by the team and rally cars beginning this summer.
The Subaru PUMA Rallycross Team will be competing in the six-round 2012 Global Rallycross Championships in venues across the United States including the Charlotte Motor Speedway, Texas Motor Speedway, New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Las Vegas Motor Speedway, and the Summer X Games 18 in Los Angeles. Competitors reach speeds of well over 100 mph in modified street cars on roads consisting of gravel, dirt or snow and everything in between.
