Matt Selley and co-driver Joana Fuller won the 2007 SA Rally Championship in their 2003 Subaru Impreza Sti and are contenders for the 2008 Championship.

They are proudly supported by Sam's Auto Electrical, Norwood Auto Services, SA Motorsport Tyres and Tyrepower St Agnes.

Matt and Joana were introduced to the sport by a friend in 2002. They started off competing in club rallysprints in a Datsun 260Z and progressed to Clubman and later to State Championship rallies.

In 2003 they made the move to 'turbo 4wd' when they bought a 1996 Subaru Impreza 555. That car underwent significant development over time as Matt and Joana became more experienced and were keen to become more competitive.

In 2006 the opportunity arose to purchase their current car from local gravel and tarmac champion, Steve Glenney. It couldn't have had a better pedigree as Steve and co-driver Bernie Webb had just used the car to achieve the near impossible - to win an Australian Rally Championship round as a privateer against the might of the manufacturer teams.

Built by Possum Bourne Motorsport in NZ for Subaru Rally Team Australia, the car was driven by Subaru factory driver, Dean Herridge, in the 2003 and 2004 ARC and in selected APRC rallies.

Matt is a member of the SA Rally Panel, which is an advisory panel to CAMS in connection with rallying in SA, and is the SA competitor representative to the Sprint Auto Parts Rally of SA.
