Though Subaru no longer competes in the World Rally Championship, the automaker is still quite active in other forms of rallying. In fact, Subaru Rally Team USA recently captured the 2011 Rally America championship with driver David Higgins at the helm. That marks the sixth time in seven years that a Subaru has been the ultimate Rally America machine.

Subaru created a mini documentary to highlight the 2011 run to the podium. It's called "Gunning for Gold," and it features both Higgins and teammate Dave Mirra discussing their cars and the season. Stay flat over the jump, and check out the clip.

      As a long time Subaru owner, and fan of rallying, it's heartening to see Subaru competing and winning. That said, it's a bittersweet affair. The WRC is a mess, but it's still the pinnacle of rallying. Not having Subaru competing at the sharp end is something of a disappointment. Hope they rectify that absence in the near future.

      Subaru put up a pretty decent effort, considering they were running a stage rally car against rallycross cars. Subaru is going to have to get Prodrive to build them rallycross specific cars if they really want to compete.

      Now that's what I call a launch event. Honda might have an aviation division, unlike Subaru...but Subaru doesn't have to.

        Subaru (Fuji Heavy Industries) does have an aviation division. Subaru was born from Nakajima Aircraft and has made all mannerisms of aircraft components including Eclipse private jets, Apache helicopters, and major components for every Boeing plane.
