LAS VEGAS, NV (PRWEB) November 4, 2004 -- SUBIESPORT Magazine will be hitting the gravel stages in the 2005 season with the formation of the SUBIESPORT Magazine Rally Team. In partnership with Rocket Rally, the team will compete in the Western US and Canadian Championships. Car preparation and the road to victory will be closely documented within the pages of SUBIESPORT Magazine.

The team will be working with Patrick Richard, 2004 Canadian and American Overall Rally Champion, and his Rocket Rally shop on preparation of a Subaru rally car and team development. SUBIESPORT Magazine will be showcasing this process in a multi-part series, featuring tech tips and detailed photographs in each issue.

?Documenting the build and preparation of the team?s car in the magazine will be a great way to show how the common enthusiast can build a great car of their own on a reasonable budget,? says Warwick Patterson, Team Manager. ?From the team?s perspective, it?s also a great chance to showcase our sponsors and parts suppliers to a wide audience.?

Ryan Douthit, publisher of SUBIESPORT Magazine, is hoping this endeavor will help the sport, which has been struggling to gain a foothold in the US. ?We?re looking forward to contributing what we can to the sport of performance rally in North America.? He continued, ?As we publish our own team?s journey, from building the car to crossing the finish, we hope more privateers will be inspired to get involved, by working the course, organizing events or fielding teams of their own.?

The team aims to debut the car at the Cochrane Rally in Alberta in March 2005 to compete for the Canadian and Western Canadian Championships. The team will also participate in select Western US events such as the Subaru Rim of the World International Rally in Lancaster, California, and Oregon Trail Rally in Hillsboro, Oregon.

SUBIESPORT Magazine is available at bookstores throughout North America and is published bi-monthly by Midnight Café Media LLC, a publishing and media firm based in Kirkland, Washington. SUBIESPORT Magazine is the only independent magazine in North America dedicated to Subaru owners and enthusiasts. Each issue features coverage of performance rally, road trips, tuning articles and profiles unique to the Subaru community.

Rocket Rally is a British Columbia based rally preparation shop owned and operated by Patrick Richard, overall winner of the 2004 Canadian and American rally championships. Rocket Rally will provide preparation and support services to the program as well as overall guidance during the build and maintenance process.
