Ride along in the 2012 Subaru WRX STI as 2011 Rally America National Champions David Higgins and Craig Drew pilot Subaru Rally Team USA #75 through the intensely slippery and icy conditions found at the 2012 Sno*Drift Rally in Atlanta, Michigan. The lack of grip was described as unbelievable and forced the team to take many junctions at just a few miles per hour in order to stay on the road. Despite this, their precise and quick driving set them up with a nearly two minute lead early in the event which they carried until the finish, winning the first event on the 2012 Rally America National Championship series.
The Sno*Drift Rally features nearly 130 miles of snow and ice-covered roads in northern Michigan. Constantly changing weather and road conditions historically make this rally extremely challenging made even more treacherous as Rally America rules prohibit the use of spiked or studded ice tires here placing a premium on road traction.

2012 Subaru Impreza WRX STi Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/subaru/impreza-wrx-sti/2012/?id=32972 The 2012
Subaru Impreza WRX STi is the most popular all-wheel drive performance car
on the market today. This bad boy sports over 300 horsepower and can destroy
the 0-60 MPH barrier in under 5 seconds. That's faster than most sports cars! The 2012
Subaru Impreza WRX STi has a base price of $34,098. The STi comes in two
body styles; there is a 4-door hatchback and a regular sedan body style.
Both look great and provide loads of room. The 2.5 liter engine 4-dylinder
boxer engine produces 305 horsepower and 290 lb-ft. of
torque. A slick 6-speed transmission sends power through Subaru's advanced
Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system.
The interior of the 2012 Subaru WRX STi is all business. The dark tones
give the car a real sporty feel. The ergonomics are just right as
everything you need is right within reach. This sort of design comes from
many years racing and rallying experience. The STi comes with a great
steering wheel as well as supportive Recaro sport seats. Subaru designed
the interior to not only be functional but comfortable also.
The 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX STi is at home carving the canyons or sliding
around in the dirt. Subaru has kept automotive enthusiasts hungry for the
STi since it first hit our shores almost 10 years ago. And the 2012 WRX
STi is the cream of the crop!
