Subaru vehicles clinched the top two places in round four of the CAMS Onslow Contracting Western Australian Rally Championship (WARC), the Make Smoking History Experts Cup Rally, held last Saturday in Collie.

Maximum Motorsports’ Brad Markovic and Toni Feaver finished the 125-kilometre rally the fastest in their 2010 Subaru WRX STI.

Markovic / Feaver, who are contesting the CAMS Australian Rally Championship (ARC), won all nine stages. Markovic said he really enjoyed the event.

“I love the Experts Cup. Collie is a nice area and it’s a nice place to stay overnight. The Wellington Dam stages are really nice, and best of all, it’s not too far from Perth,” he said. 

“I was expecting it to be colder than it was. The roads were amazing and our car was loving the conditions.”

“There were a few little wet spots and but the stages held up brilliantly considering they were used three times.“Our focus is the ARC.

We like Collie and it was a good opportunity to test the car and make sure everything is perfect, which it is.

“I’m not sure what other WARC events we’ll do. The Championship is close, so you never know!”

Markovic acknowledged the result of his teammate John O’Dowd who, with co-driver Kenneth Sheil, finished in second place in their 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STI.
