Alexandria, Virginia -- Rallysport is proud to announce that Robby Unser Racing is teaming up with them for the 2002 Susquehanna Trail ProRally. This comes as Rallysport has recently come under new ownership with expansion into new rally interests always over the next crest. Rallysport has sponsored the Rim of the World ProRally, Sawmill ClubRally and will be sponsoring the Rally of Mexico for 2002 and 2003. While the company itself has expanded to be the official apparel dealer for the SCCA Performance Rally community, they are also offering tours to spectate at such events as Rally New Zealand and the Safari Rally. Rallysport will also offer a wider collection of books, DVD's and videos, prints and clothing in the near future.
Robby Unser will be piloting the Rallysport Mazda Protégé in Group 2 with Ed Wahl as his co-driver. The car has been prepared and will be fielded by Nui Motorsports. Robby will be available for autographs during the parc expose.
Robby is no stranger to racing in the dirt. He has many victories under his belt from Pikes Peak International Hill Climbs, FIA World Hill Climbs, Outlaws and Late Models. He may be best known for his Indy Racing League career, but is ready to tackle the forests in SCCA ProRally.
Rallysport President, Sumit Panjabi had this to say "This is a great opportunity for us to showcase our rental cars and we are thankful to have Robby drive for us. Robby's entry goes to show that the profile of the sport is growing as more and more drivers from other forms of motorsports are getting involved with the sport."
Look for more from Rallyport in the near future as other cars are making their scene on rallying in the SCCA. Rallysport is expanding into renting rally cars. The Rallysport Mazda Protégé driven by Robby Unser will be available for rent after the Susquehanna Trail ProRally. All Rallysport cars are sponsored by Part Depot, DC Brake and Bearing, Kelley Welding and Home Sweet Home moving service.
