Scion Racing returns for its second full rally season with a new Scion xD

Article by Christian A., on January 25, 2013

For its second full rally season, Scion Racing brings a new Scion xD in the Rally America National Championship. There are seven events that driver Andrew Comrie-Picard and the team will participate in. It starts on January 25 to 26 with the two-day Sno*Drift Rally in Atlanta, Mich.

For the new season, the Scion rally team has prepared a new xD race car that was modified to meet the difficult courses and tough competition. The 2013 car includes modifications such as all-new suspension, better weight distribution, dog engagement transmission and higher horsepower.

Steve Hatanaka, Scion marketing and special events manager, said that Scion Racing is “ready and thrilled” to join the 2013 Rally America National Championship. He also said that this series will surely be a competitive and exciting one with the merging of the xD subcompact, a superior team race team, along with Andrew Comrie-Picard, one of the best rally drivers ever.

It was in 2012 that the Rally xD team accomplished its first full season in the Rally America National Championship. After joining in six gruesome events, the team took second place in the series’ two-wheel drive (2WD) category. Comrie-Picard said that the Rally xD team has worked hard so that the new car will be equipped for the first race. He also claimed that the xD is the “best it has ever been.”
