The 2011 Susquehannock Trail Performance Rally (STPR) came to a nail-biting finish. After 120 stage miles Subaru Rally Team USA’s David Higgins beat the 2010 Rally America Champion Antoine L’Estage by a mere 1.3 seconds. The grand finale took place at the Tioga County Fairgrounds Super Special near Wellsboro, Pennsylvania.

Higgins and L’Estage battled throughout the event with the Subaru driver coming back from a 37 second deficit at the end of day 2. Ramana Lagemann and co-driver Chrissie Beavis took 3rd place in their Super Production 2011 Subaru Impreza STI. Travis Hanson and Terry Hanson placed 4th in their Super Production 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STi. Subaru Rally Team USA driver David Mirra suffered an accident caused by a pace note error, but managed to drive his Impreza STI to the finish and snatched the 5th place.
