Rally Team

Since DirtFish was started with the love of rally racing in mind, a rally team was naturally the next step for us.

We set the goal in the fall of 2014 to build a car to compete in the 2015 Cascadia International Rally Championship, with a second car to be ready halfway through the season.
The DirtFish rally team currently consists of one driver, James Rimmer, piloting his new, well engineered Group 2 Subaru BRZ, built by our crew of mechanics, fabricators and engineers- the same crew that builds each one of our school cars we use in our programs. Utilizing the knowledge they’ve learned working on our fleet of Subaru STI’s and BRZ’s, they have put together one of the best engineered, two wheel drive rally cars in the world.
The Cascadia International Rally Championship (CIRC) consists of six races- four in the USA and two across the border in Canada, including a few races in the Rally America series, Canadian Rally Championship and NASA Rallysport series. CIRC gives competitors the unique opportunity to go up against the best drivers in North America. No other North American series offers the chance for that type of international competition.
