Subaru | Cars
The story behind the Impreza’s success is best told by the raw statistics: six World Rally Championship titles and 46 outright rally wins.
The Impreza has been the defining car in Subaru’s elevation from relative obscurity to a legend in world rallying. From its inception in 1993, the Impreza has provided a sensory assault on motorsport fans across the globe. Subaru’s blue and yellow livery is now as iconic as the flat-four engine note which trumpets the car’s continued success. And for a great car, there have been great drivers: Ari Vatanen, Kenneth Eriksson, Colin McRae, Carlos Sainz, Juha Kankkunen, Tommi Makinen and the sadly-missed Richard Burns have all succeeded with the car down the years.
Most recently, Petter Solberg has made the Impreza his own, demonstrating its undiminished appetite for glory when he won the 2003 Drivers’ World Rally Championship title.

We attended the Tockwith junior experience today. Our 12 year old son has ASD and severe anxiety, but he has been excited for this since Christmas. However, once we arrived the sounds and people got the better of him. However the team were amazing! Our driver had the greatest patience and understood he needed some space and time to process everything. He was so kind, I really couldn't have thanked him enough. He did his 3 laps, when we got home and he decompressed he had the most amazing smile. Thank you so much for making such an amazing memory for our son.Kim
