Simon de Banke of Scooby Sprint said: "We're delighted to have Prodrive onboard, and it shows their commitment and loyalty to the UK Subaru enthusiasts. It will be great to see the car tearing up the tarmac at the first event. Amazingly, the Prodrive WRC won't be the most powerful car there on paper, due to the WRC-regulation turbo-restrictor. We have entries running more than 800 horse power. But with the might of Prodrive engineering and the technology they've built into the car, I think there will be a few surprised looks once the times for the first stage are in! It will certainly be a spectacle."
Steve Smith, Prodrive car sales manager, said: "Scooby Sprint is a great concept. The Subaru community has been a fervent supporter of Prodrive and rallying for nearly two decades so it's great to be able to show our thanks to them by competing with one of our latest specification Impreza World Rally Cars. We are fully aware that there are some very highly tuned Imprezas out there and we know every one of them will be aiming to beat us. But let's be clear, we are not coming along for the ride."
