1 Mins read

Privateer Brendan Cumiskey provided JRM with a promising debut for the production-specification Subaru WRX STI as he battled to 37th overall and third in the N4 class at Wales Rally GB.

The Irishman became one of the first customers for the all-new 2014 car which was produced in partnership between JRM and Subaru Tecnica International (STI) and chose the final round of the WRC season to give the car its first run out.

Tough weather conditions provided Cumiskey with a challenging landscape, through the winding Welsh forests over three days the WRX STI performed flawlessly.

“Brendan did a fantastic job in Wales because the conditions caught out a number of high-profile drivers,” said JRM senior sales manager Steve Smith.

“Our 2014 Subaru WRX STI has already shown itself to be a class-leading package in this year’s FIA European Rally Championship, but we’re thrilled to see the car show its strength and durability at a world championship gravel event.

“Our car is the newest and most up-to-date car to enter the production class category and the fact that a driver like Brendan can jump straight in and finish so highly shows the performance step that the car brings over older N4 cars and illustrates what a driver-friendly car we’ve built.”
