Possum Bourne Motorsport team members have joined forces with Toshi Arai's team at the latest round of the Production World Rally Championship.
Arai and his Kiwi co-driver Tony Sircombe, who are running under the Subaru Production Rally Team banner, are lying second after the first two stages of the Rally of Argentina.
Three members of Possum Bourne Motorsport have joined Arai's team at Villa Carlos Paz, near the city of Cordoba, where the third round of the PWRC is being held.
They will form part of the support crew for Arai.
The first two stages were held on Thursday evening Argentina time, with a double run through the super special stage, which is 10 kms outside Villa Carlos Paz.
Local driver Marcos Ligato has taken an early lead with Arai second in his 2003 model Impreza WSRX STI with which he won the class on the Rally of New Zealand.
There are still 380 kms of stages before the finish on Monday morning New Zealand time.
