David Higgins Signs With JB15

Tuesday, Jul 20 155
Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Famer David Higgins has signed with JB15 Group for athlete representation and management. JB15 will represent and support the 10-time United States stage rally champion across multiple avenues.
 
Higgins is a rallying champion on three separate continents, having won overall championships in the United States and Great Britain, and teams’ championships in China. He earned his first American titles in back-to-back years in 2002 and 2003, converted a one-off entry in the British championship into a title-winning season the next year, and won every round of the Chinese season in 2007 as part of four teams’ championships on the continent.
 
From 2011 to 2019, Higgins had some of his most prominent successes as a part of Subaru’s factory motorsports program, winning eight of nine championships across two sanctioning bodies in that time alongside co-driver Craig Drew. Headlined by a dominant 2015 season in which he went a perfect eight-for-eight, Higgins would go on to be just the second rally inductee in the Off-Road Motorsports Hall of Fame four years later.
 
Higgins’ successes have not been limited to stage rally. He also set a new record in the Mount Washington Hillclimb Auto Race in 2011 and broke it once again in 2014, is an X Games medalist in Rally Car Racing, and added two podium finishes in Global Rallycross events across parts of multiple seasons.
In addition, JB15 will support the efforts of Higgins’ son Matthew, who is the reigning 2020 British Kart Champion in the Junior Rotax Max division, and has represented Great Britain internationally in the karting ranks.
 
“I’ve known the Higgins family for the better part of a decade,” stated JB15’s Jim Beaver. “David is a true professional and one of the most accomplished stage rally drivers in the world over the past decade. We are very excited to be able to work with David on the next stage of his career and help guide Matthew as his career is just getting started. It’s very humbling for our small company to be working with such a world class driver such as David, and I look forward to unveiling some big announcements very soon.”

Adam has been a race fan since the first time he went through the tunnel under the Daytona International Speedway almost 30 years ago. He has had the privilege of traveling to races all across the state of Florida (as well as one race in Ohio), watching nearly everything with a motor compete for fame and glory, as well as participating in various racing schools to get the feel of what racecar drivers go through every week.  

Adam spent several years covering motorsports for Examiner.com., where he had the opportunity to see the racing world from behind the scenes as well as the grandstands. He invites everyone to follow him on Twitter, Facebook, and Google Plus, and looks forward to sharing his enthusiasm for all things racing with the readers of SpeedwayDigest.com.
