David Higgins

Name: David Higgins

Country: United Kingdom

Date of Birth: 21st May 1971

 

David was only involved with the RS2000 very briefly; driving a GSE prepared car alongside Gwyndaf Evans in the British Rally Championship in 1995. The car wore the Response Computer Maintenance livery, a sponsor which was to follow the GSE team up until the end of 1997. David doesn’t recall his experiences in the RS2000 too fondly, as it was a difficult year whilst the car was developed. He did manage to score some strong performances and good results, but was never truly happy in the Escort. 1996 saw a move to Honda and finishing 5th overall in the championship. He moved on to greater things in 1997, winning the Group N Production Cup with a Subaru Impreza and, more recently, driving for Subaru USA. Despite his limited success in the RS2000, David did still describe the car as a “beast”, and it did help him go on to other rallying success.
