Subaru confirms Lasek, Isachsen and Pastrana are back for 2015 GRC
Fans are hoping they will get to see the new-generation 2015 Subaru WRX STI GRC car that was unveiled last year at the New York International Auto Show at this year’s Global Rallycross races. We do know that Svere Isachsen and Bucky Lasek will drive for Subaru again this season. Travis Pastrana will join the team at select rounds and his schedule will be announced at a later date.
Subaru announced that Lasek and Isachsen have renewed multi-year contracts with SRT USA and will compete in the full 2015 Global Rallycross Championship season and Summer X games. Last year, the duo competed well for Subaru and had their most successful season to-date. In the GRC series, they earned a combined five podiums including an X Games Silver Medal by Lasek and victory at the Seattle, WA round for Isachsen.
