About David Higgins
David got his first taste of motorsports in motorcycle trials when he was just eight years old. By age ten he had moved into national kart racing and won seven titles. At his first opportunity, David started rallying and was invited to drive in the team that Richard Burns drove for in the Peugeot 205 Challenge. He went on to win the 1997, 1999 and 2002 British Rally Championship in the Group N Class. In 2002, he also came to America as a privateer and won the SCCA Pro Rally Championship (Now known as Rally America) while driving a Subaru. He repeated his success in 2003 winning six events and again claiming the SCCA Pro Rally Championship. For 2004, David went back to Britain and became the British Rally Champion. David also began rallying in the ultra-competitive Chinese Rally Championship in 2004 where he helped his team win the Team Championship in 2004, 2007 and 2009. Most recently, David signed for Subaru Rally Team USA and earned the 2011 Rally America National Championship title in his first season with the team, earned a bronze medal at X Games 17 in Rally Car Racing, and set the record time for the prestigious Mount Washington Hill Climb in his 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI rally car.
