The result of the collaboration between Subaru and Toyota has resulted in a fantastic sports car for the road, but how well is it doing in race car form? The Subaru BRZ GT300 has been racing all season in the Super GT series out in Japan, improving on each race and narrowly missing the podium in Round 7.
Its most recent competition was at Autopolis in Japan, where the BRZ managed to climb as high as third place during the race, but had to settle for a fourth place finish after an issue in the final stage of the race. It’s the best finish to date for the race car, which is impressive considering it’s the first year of competition for it.
“The final result is disappointing, but it’s clear that the BRZ can now fight against the best cars in the world,” said STI General Team Manager Hideharu Tatsumi. “Its strength is not just the handling abilities, but also its lap times don’t go down so much after a long stint. Taking advantage of its strength, we will be aiming for a top position in the next round at Motegi.”
Round 8 of the Super GT Championship will be on October 28th, 2012 at Twin Ring Motegi. Hopefully the team can achieve its goal of getting on the podium for year’s end.
