Crocker finishes APRC season in style
Subaru rally driver Cody Crocker won the Rally of China last weekend, adding the 2009 Asia Cup title to his impressive collection of 2009 accolades.
The victory also secured Subaru to another Asia-Pacific Rally Championship manufacturers’ title.
The three-time Australian Champion had already secured a fourth-straight APRC driver’s title after winning Rally Indonesia in October.
Driving the MotorImage Impreza WRX STI, the Victorian finished on top of the APRC points’ table with 94, just two shy of the prefect score of 96. He and co-driver, Ben Atkinson, took the honours in all six events of the Championship – Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Malaysia, Indonesia and China.
“It is a fantastic way to end the season,” Crocker said.
“We came here with the APRC already won, but with important business remaining. We really wanted to win the Asia Cup as well, but most importantly, we wanted to make sure that Subaru’s name was engraved on the Manufacturers’ trophy.”
