A Longstanding Partnership Founded On Podium Results

Subaru NEW

Since 2005 Vermont SportsCar has been the technical partner to Subaru of America and has spearheaded the Subaru brand’s highly successful motorsports programs in the USA, now under the guise of Subaru Motorsports USA (formerly Subaru Rally Team USA). Competing in the American Rally Association and the Nitro Rallycross Series, they have won 17 of the past 22 rally championships: from 2006 -2009 and another eight straight championships from 2011 – 2019, and most recently the 2021 ARA and Nitro Rallycross Championships.

With over 70 outright victories (and counting), ten X Games medals and the coveted Mt. Washington Hillclimb record, Subaru Motorsports USA is the most dominant rallysport team in North America. Vermont SportsCar manages many facets of the Subaru motorsports program including the race vehicle design and build, race team management, as well as sponsorship and media relations.  

In addition to the traditional race programs Vermont SportsCar designs and builds vehicles for special Subaru projects such as the Red Bull New Year’s Jump, Gymkhana 2020 and Gymkhana 2022. To read the specs and view the build biology of the Family Huckster, as featured in Gymkhana 2022, go here.
