Subaru Rally Team USA announced today the selection of Sverre Isachsen of Norway, the defending FIA European Rallycross Champion, to fill the team’s guest driver
slot at the 2010 ESPN Summer X Games 16 in Los Angeles, California on July 31st. Isachsen will

join Subaru Rally Team USA star drivers Travis Pastrana and Dave Mirra for the debut of SuperRally
at the X Games, each will drive a 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI modified for Rallycross with an over
550 horsepower Boxer engine and Symmetrical All Wheel Drive.

“I’m very excited to come to a huge event like the Summer X Games and to have the opportunity to be
teammates to legends like Pastrana and Mirra is very special,” said Isachsen. “I think a Rallycross
style event will fit perfectly with the X Games because it is a very entertaining motorsport with a lot of

action. Rallycross has traditionally been a European motorsport, but I think the concept can be big in
the USA and I’m happy to be a part of the very first Rallycross event in America!”

Isachsen was the Norwegian Rallycross Champion in 1999, 2000 and 2004 and debuted in the top

level FIA European Rallycross Championship (the ERC) in 2002. After finishing fourth in the ERC
standings three years in a row (2006-2008) Isachsen achieved ultimate success last year and was
crowned the ERC Champion. His title defense in 2010 has been exceptional so far and Sverre leads

the 2010 ERC standings after four of ten rounds, having won two events outright this year already.

“SuperRally will be an exciting addition to the X Games extreme line-up and it is only fitting to have

the world’s best Rallycross driver be a part of it,” said Todd Lawrence, Promotions and Sponsorship

Manager, Subaru of America, Inc.
