At the 2021 winter event near Indio, Sno*Drift Rally, Subaru Motorsports USA took first and second place. As the only winter event on the American Rally Association calendar, all eyes were on this event, and consequently, on Subaru Motorsports USA.

The Winners

Drivers Travis Pastrana and Brandon Semenuk ended up sweeping all twelve stages of the event with their Subaru WRX STI rally cars. Despite the tough conditions, each driver and their partners managed to take the lead in their respective rallies. When the road conditions became noticeably icier, each driver was able to take a more cautious approach while still keeping their leads.

This is due to the WRX's all-wheel drive, allowing the rally car to keep road grip among harsher and more slippery road conditions. This resulted in both drivers bringing their cars to the finish line without incident.

Benefits of AWD

This rally not only serves as a great win to both Pastrana and Semenuk but also shows the importance and benefits of an all-wheel-drive around Cathedral City, which comes standard on Subaru vehicles. With all-wheel drive, drivers of all kinds can remain confident in any road condition. This system results in better traction when driving over icy or wet roads or snow.

Because all-wheel drive delivers power to wheels automatically where it needs it most, this also helps correct wheel slip on Palm Desert roads. Staying safe on any road is a high priority for Subaru, regardless of how you use it.
