2017 hailed in the successful introduction of the Buckby Subaru Challenge one make series to the Tasmanian Rally Championship.
Over the 4 rounds 12 Subaru Impreza RS were tested across 33 special stages of varying length and difficulty. The inaugural winner of the Buckby Subaru Challenge was Nic Grave, in a closely fought battle all year with Ben Newman, who finished in 2nd place. Proving consistency is the key, Buckby Subaru Dealer Principal Crichton Lewis rounded out the top three.
Back for 2018, the Buckby Subaru Challenge has grown, with several new cars being built in the off season and generating plenty of interest in what could be the biggest year of gravel rally in Tasmania in more than a decade.
The Buckby Subaru Challenge is a one make series based on the 2001-2005 Subaru Impreza RS 2.5i. It is a perfect entry level vehicle for those considering the world of Gravel Rallying. The rules enable safe, cost-effective racing on an even platform. A ready to rally car can be purchased for under $20,000 with parts easily accessible and affordable.
