Subaru dominates 2016 ARC Rally Canberra

It was a dominant display from Subaru at the weekend’s Rally Canberra with cars from the Japanese manufacturer taking four of the top five placings.

The Reeves Earthmoving Subaru Impreza WRX STi piloted by Brendan Reeves and Rhianon Gelsomino took the Australian Rally Championship (ARC) round ahead of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo of Nathan Quinn and David Calder.

Then it was also Subaru through positions three (Simon Evans and Ben Searcy), four (Tom Wilde and Sam Hill) and five (Molly Taylor and William Hayes).

The Reeves and Gelsomino duo proving the most consistent pairing across the two-day event finishing second quickest in Heat One and then taking out Heat Two by more than a second over Quinn and Calder after the Mitsubishi pairing were handed a five second penalty.
