The nature of loose surface racing means that normally it takes a turbo-charged four-wheel drive vehicle (along with some talent, commitment, and racer’s luck) to win events overall. The Hintz Bros have won only a single event overall in a two-wheel drive vehicle – a normally-aspirated Mazda RX-3. But between late 2003 and 2010 the Hintz Bros rallied a highly competitive Subaru WRX, notching 15 more overall rally victories together in that time. Dave won an additional five rallies with alternate co-drivers (John Dillon, Jon Ford, and Doug Chase) while Rick was in Iraq or otherwise unavailable. Since then the Hintz Bros have gone back to their rear-wheel drive roots, where costs are lower, the competition is every bit as fun, and the driving style is even more spectator-friendly (sideways), driving the BMW M3.
