Higgins Crowned American Champion in Maine

David Higgins and co-driver Craig Drew have clinched their second consecutive American title with Subaru Rally Team USA at this weekend's New England Forest Rally in Newry, Maine.

Higgins finished the Series' penultimate event second overall just 21 seconds adrift of rally winner L'Estage, but only had to place sixth or better here to mathematically secure the championship before the final round in September, the Olympus Rally.

The Manxman's result in Maine is his third podium finish of the season having claimed second place at both 100 Acre Wood and Susquehannock Trail. He won Sno*Drift and Oregon Trail outright.

This championship marks the fourth American title of Higgins' career.
