Max McRae could be about to follow in his father, grandfather and uncle’s footsteps by becoming the latest member of the rallying dynasty to compete in a Subaru.
The 16-year-old will know this week if he drives a Subaru Impreza or a Ford Fiesta R2T recently acquired from Spain at next month’s Bakers Hill Rally.
The Fiesta is currently on a boat heading south but is unlikely to have cleared customs until only a few days before the start of the April 17 event. The alternative would be an Impreza hired from former Subaru Rally Team Australia driver Dean Herridge.
“I tested a Peugeot AP4 car recently and really enjoyed it, so it would be cool to be out in a four-wheel-drive car – especially a Subaru with the family ties we have with that manufacturer,” McRae told DirtFish.
“I’m just looking forward to driving again. It’s been quite a while since we did the Safari Darling Rally in November.”
