More than the weekend Subaru exposed its new BRZ race auto, which it will marketing campaign following 12 months in the GT300 class of Japan’s SuperGT series. The auto was proven in an on-line movie known as “Subaru Motorsport Enthusiast Appreciation Collecting 2020” that lined its rally, the 86/BRZ one particular-make league that it operates with Toyota, and SuperGT, Japan’s leading touring auto series.
The past 12 months has been a disappointment to a lot of race supporters as the COVID-19 pandemic canceled a lot of occasions throughout the world. Even rounds that were being run did not let for attendance, starving supporters of the racing action that they wanted to see. So, Subaru made a decision to flip a motorsports pageant for its supporters into a virtual occasion and unveiled their new race auto on-line.
We truly saw the auto lately at Fuji Speedway as Subaru carried out exams of an upgraded 2nd-era BRZ. As you may be expecting, the GT300 auto will now feature the glance of the new BRZ, with the new head and taillights and grille. The auto continue to wears its carbon fiber bodywork, but presumably when it starts off the 2021 season it’ll be decked out in its regular livery of Subaru’s WR blue and STI’s sakura pink.
Minimal else was exposed about the auto, but presumably it’ll keep on to run a turbocharged flat-4 putting out about 350 horsepower dependent on the tune. Indeed, we know, but this is a race-only software primarily based on Subaru rally auto engines a little bit modified for street classes. You can see, and listen to, the GT300 auto at the 1:54:48 mark in the movie and in these tweets.
In the job interview segment, drivers Hideki Yamauchi and Takuto Iguchi were being limited-lipped as effectively, stating about the auto only, “It really is amazing” with realizing smiles. They also claimed they felt lonely this 12 months, as the entire SuperGT season was run this 12 months with no one particular in the stands. Then Subaru rally driver Hiroki Arai joked that he’d hardly ever been in a SuperGT auto, and the drivers agreed to swap machines. We can only hope that points will return to usual ahead of that happens and supporters will be permitted to see that in individual.
