Above the weekend Subaru exposed its new BRZ race automobile, which it will marketing campaign future year in the GT300 class of Japan’s SuperGT collection. The automobile was demonstrated in an on the internet movie referred to as “Subaru Motorsport Fan Appreciation Collecting 2020” that protected its rally, the 86/BRZ one particular-make league that it runs with Toyota, and SuperGT, Japan’s leading touring automobile collection.

The past year has been a disappointment to lots of race supporters as the COVID-19 pandemic canceled many functions throughout the globe. Even rounds that had been run did not allow for for attendance, starving supporters of the racing action that they desired to see. So, Subaru decided to convert a motorsports competition for its supporters into a virtual function and unveiled their new race automobile on the internet.

We truly saw the automobile lately at Fuji Speedway as Subaru performed exams of an upgraded 2nd-technology BRZ. As you could possibly count on, the GT300 automobile will now function the glimpse of the new BRZ, with the new head and taillights and grille. The automobile continue to wears its carbon fiber bodywork, but presumably when it starts off the 2021 time it’s going to be decked out in its common livery of Subaru’s WR blue and STI’s sakura pink.

Small else was exposed about the automobile, but presumably it’s going to continue on to run a turbocharged flat-4 putting out about 350 horsepower depending on the tune. Indeed, we know, but this is a race-only software based on Subaru rally automobile engines marginally modified for street classes. You can see, and hear, the GT300 automobile at the one:54:48 mark in the movie and in these tweets.

In the interview phase, drivers Hideki Yamauchi and Takuto Iguchi had been restricted-lipped as perfectly, saying about the automobile only, “It is neat” with realizing smiles. They also explained they felt lonely this year, as the whole SuperGT time was run this year with no one particular in the stands. Then Subaru rally driver Hiroki Arai joked that he’d in no way been in a SuperGT automobile, and the drivers agreed to swap machines. We can only hope that matters will return to typical just before that comes about and supporters will be authorized to see that in particular person.
