Launch Control: Subaru Rally Team at the Halfway Point! | Rimrock Subaru

A lot of Subaru owners are also very interested in (or own) the Subaru WRX STi, and it’s role in the Subaru Rally Team USA competitions. The Rally Team is only halfway throught the season, but they’re already cranking out some very cool videos that will get any Subaru enthusiast’s heart pumping.

In this episode, the team at Vermont SportsCar works flat out at the shop to prepare the rally and rallycross cars in Vermont before leaving for GRC Charlotte. Bucky Lasek and Sverre Lasek start the event off with heat wins, but can they convert that to a podium finish?

The Subaru WRX S4 on the way? | Rimrock Subaru

Is there a new, high(er) performance Subaru WRX on the way? Well…yes!

Today Fuji Heavy Industries, LTD, the maker of Subaru cars, announced that a new WRX model is on the way to Japanese markets August 25th, and expected to be released to the rest of the world afterward. It is called the WRX S4!


Not a whole lot is known yet about the specs, but Subaru did say this:

While the “WRX S4″ has “the Subaru’s top AWD (All-Wheel drive) sports performance”, the sports sedan also achieves “unique overall safety performance” with features such as the next-generation EyeSight, “superior environmental friendliness” and “high-quality feel”. By fusing these four values at a high level centering on its AWD sports performance as a core attribute, a new value has been achieved. It enables more drivers to enjoy superb driving performance with safety and comfort. To represent the above four attributes, the vehicle name “S4″ has four meanings; “Sports performance”, “Safety performance”, “Smart driving” and “Sophisticated feel”.

A special website has been launched on the Subaru Official Website at 11:00 am on July 25 (Japan time) to release teaser images and other information.


We likely wont have any of these in stock for quite a while – but once we learn more we’ll let you know!

What does Warren Buffett Drive? | Rimrock Subaru

We just came across a very interesting story! Named one of the most influential people in the world, business magnate Warren Edward Buffett was recently seen driving a red Subaru Outback. The “Wizard of Omaha” is by far one of those super-rich people who couldn’t care less for the expensive goods, such as luxury cars and huge mansions.


It’s hard to tell from the picture, but the red SUV seems to be the actual 2015 model the Japanese company has released in April. The funny thing is Buffett is actually one of Ford’s share holders, which means he is driving a competitor’s new model. In fact, he recently called the Subaru Outback a “real threat” to one of his favorite businesses. Read more Here.

Subaru’s rock solid reputation, fuel economy, AWD control, and innovative safety doesnt go unnoticed!

Setting a new Lap Record! Isle of Man TT Course | Rimrock Subaru

Subaru returns to the world’s most formidable racetrack, the Isle of Man TT Course, with the all-new 2015 Subaru WRX STI to set a new lap record.

In a final timed run on the Isle of Man TT Course, Mark Higgins driving a 2015 Subaru WRX STI breaks his lap record of the fabled 37-mile course with an average lap speed of 117.510 and a time of 19 minutes and 15 seconds. In Higgins’ record lap earlier this week, several errors caused him to lose time and he was determined to get more out of car. This new lap record breaks the 116.470 MPH average and time of 19:26 set Wednesday. The previous record of 115.36 MPH was set in 2011 in a WRX STI.

Subaru Broke The Isle Of Man TT Record, Again | Rimrock Subaru

June 6, 2014


Douglas, Isle of Man –  Subaru of America, Inc. announced today that in a final timed run on the Isle of Man TT Course, Mark Higgins driving a 2015 Subaru WRX STI breaks his lap record of the fabled 37-mile course with an average lap speed of 117.510 and a time of 19 minutes and 15 seconds. In Higgins’ record lap earlier this week, several errors caused him to lose time and he was determined to get more out of car. This new lap record breaks the 116.470 MPH average and time of 19:26 set Wednesday. The previous record of 115.36 MPH was set in 2011 in a WRX STI.

Isle Of Man Record

The run was completed in a U.S.-spec 2015 Subaru WRX STI.

“This was a great run when everything came together and I was able to do a much cleaner lap as I am still learning where I can go flat in this car,” said Mark Higgins. “I am really happy to beat the lap records set by John McGuiness in the Zero Bikes and the sidecar lap record as John was riding me about that! I can’t say enough about the new WRX STI and how much abuse it has taken as we have really ridden it hard over this course for three very fast runs and this is definitely not an easy course. The chassis on this new car is just night and day.”

The car Higgins drove is a stock U.S.-spec 2015 WRX STI, with the exception of an FIA-spec roll-cage, racing seat and harness, fire suppression system and modified springs and dampers to handle the sustained high speeds and changing conditions of the course. The Subaru WRX STI also featured Dunlop Direzza tires and a high decibel straight exhaust for crowd safety. The speed limiter was also removed from the car.

“I would like to thank Subaru for making this possible and also a big thanks to all the organizers and marshals who volunteer their time here and who made this drive happen and also made it a safe run,” Higgins added.

“We knew there was more speed in the car after Wednesday’s run and we are very happy the organizers made this happen today,” said Dominick Infante, National Manager of Product Communications, Subaru of America, Inc. “Mark was really flying on today’s lap and could show what the new chassis can do on a circuit as demanding as the Isle of Man TT.”

The event, which has been comprehensively risk assessed by both Subaru and the ACU, including consultation with all relevant parties, took place under full, closed road race conditions.

David Cretney, the Isle of Man Government Political Member responsible for Tourism and Motorsport, commented:

“We are pleased (delighted) to be able to help one of the TT’s valued, long term partners in delivering their promotional campaign for the new vehicle. Subaru of America has made a major commitment to the event, both financially and as a provider of course cars, which helps us to reduce the fiscal contribution required by the public purse.

In his previous attempt on the course, Higgins created one of the most memorable race videos when he had a self-described “moment” at the bottom of Bray Hill at 150 MPH. The video has received almost 4 million views. After setting the record Higgins stated, “Setting the record was both the most exhilarating and the most frightening thing I have ever done.”

Stay tuned for a full video release of the run.

We’re Sharing the Love with Family Service, Inc. | Rimrock Subaru

Rimrock Subaru and
Family Service, Inc. Billings, MT

Rimrock Subaru & FSI

April, 7, 2014

Rimrock Subaru of Billings recently announced the results of its “Share The Love” winter campaign to support Billings’ own Family Service, Inc. Subaru of America will be presenting a check for $6,583.25 to Family Service, Inc. directors at 1824 First Ave North, the home of Family Service on Wednesday, April 9th at 9:00am.  This celebration of community generosity will take place in conjunction with the annual volunteer appreciation breakfast at Family Service.

Family Service works to prevent homelessness and alleviate poverty in Yellowstone County. They assist struggling families with basic needs, including food, clothing, rent and utilities. They also offer special services  like back to school supplies for children, holiday meals and gifts, or vision care assistance, helping vulnerable children, adults and senior citizens.

The money raised during Subaru of America’s sixth annual “Share the Love” event, during which customers buying or leasing a new Subaru had the opportunity to designate a $250 donation from Subaru to charity. Five national charities were selected by Subaru of America, and individual Subaru retailers were allowed to add a sixth charity from their local community.

Rimrock Subaru partnered with Family Service, Inc., a decision clearly embraced by the dealership’s customer base. More than a third of Rimrock Subaru’s customers chose to designate Subaru’s donation to Family Service, Inc., resulting in a fundraising success that exceeded expectations.

“Family Service has operated in Billings for more than 100 years.” said Executive Director, Stacy Brown. “Generous local donors and volunteers are vital partners in our work, making it possible to provide help, preserve dignity and instill hope among our neighbors in need.”

“This was the first year that Subaru asked dealers to choose a hometown charity option, and we were thrilled to be able to partner with Family service Inc.,” said Ernie Lee, Owner/Partner of Rimrock Subaru. “Family Service Inc. changes lives, and helps stop the cycle of homelessness in our community. Our customers appreciate that, and they support the Family Service mission.”

Subaru of America officials have said they expect to donate $10 million to charities in 2014 as part of the “Share the Love” campaign, which has provided $35 million in donations over the last six years.
Rimrock Subaru, owned by Ernie Lee, John Soares and Steve Zabawa, has been in business at 324 S. 24th St W in Billings since 2002.

For more information: Ernie Lee, GM Rimrock Subaru 651-5200.
