BAR's chief engineer, Steve Farrell, has been appointed as chief engineer to the Subaru World Rally Team. Farrell will lead the design and development programmes for Subaru.
"I'm very excited to be returning to Prodrive and the SWRT," Farrell commented. "World Championship Rallying has all the right ingredients for me, both technical and personal.
The switch may be considered as a part of David Richard's plans to reorganize BAR. The new vacant function can be fulfilled by Geoff Willis, who came over from Williams at the beginning of the year.
