Subaru endurance racer s

Subaru Tecnica International (STI) has announced that it will compete in the world-famous Nurburgring 24-hour race next month. The gruelling race is now known as the ADAC Zurich 24 Hour Race and STI is aiming for a class victory, with an Impreza WRX STI driven by Kazuo Shimizu, Toshihiro Yoshida, Naoki Hattori and Koji Matsuda.

The car has been built and tuned exclusively by STI and will feature a variety of modifications including weight-reduction and safety equipment. It will participate in the SP3T class, for turbo-equipped cars with an engine displacement of 2.0 litres. STI will provide the team management for the race, supervised by Hideharu Tatsumi, STI’s General Manager of Vehicle Experiment Division. The circuit covers 25.378 kilometres and the race is the largest endurance event in the world, with more than 200 cars participating.

STI regularly uses the 20.832 km “Nordschleife” (“Old Course”) as a proving ground for vehicles in development. STI’s objective in participating in the race is to collect data and verify technical know-how, and also apply lessons learned to future development, particularly in relation to ride quality.
