FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
February 28, 2011 – Salem, MO –Travis and Terry Hanson claimed the Super Production Class win at the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood with their 2007 Subaru Impreza STi, finishing in 4th place overall. Combined with the team’s historic overall victory at the season opener, Sno*Drift Rally, they remain the overall leaders of the 2011 Rally America championship.
“The goal for this race was to stay focused and clean,” said Travis. “We had to be sure we finished well to score overall points against the faster open class competitors.”
“We really tried to race our own rally this weekend. We couldn’t allow the pressure of being the leader effect us,” explained Travis’ father and navigator Terry Hanson.
Day one of the race saw the team solidly in contention for class honors, finishing in 2nd place, just 20 seconds behind past Subaru Factory driver, Ramana Lagemann. In addition to Lagemann, Lauchlin O’Sullivan was also competing in the SP class with another professional background previously driving for Mitsubishi USA rally team. With such a competitive field, Hanson was pleased with the day’s result and planned to push harder on the fast stages the following day hoping to gain the class victory.
The team performed extremely well together and by the end of the rally they had gained a lead of almost two minutes over the next super production competitor, claiming their second win of the year.
