Default Subaru WRX STI 2016 Nürburgring 24-Hour Back-To-Back Class Race Win



The performance arm of Subaru, Subaru Tecnica International (STI), took the SP3T class win in the 2016 Nürburgring 24-Hour Race, held in Germany from May 26 to 29.

Using the All-Wheel Drive Subaru WRX STI NBR Challenge 2016 racing car, which is based on the famed mass production WRX STI, the team started the race from second on the grid, following an intense qualifying session.



Piloted by Carlo van Dam (Netherlands), Marcel Lasée (Germany), Tim Schrick (Germany) and Hideki Yamauchi (Japan), the WRX STI completed 121 laps (approximately a hellish 3,070 kilometres) in 24 hours, to claim the Class Win.

Leading the team to victory behind the scenes was General Team Manager, Hideharu Tatsumi, and Team Manager, Shigeo Sugaya.

Respectively, STI has competed in the Nürburgring 24-Hour Race for nine consecutive years and this marks the fourth win in the SP3T class for STI, following its victory in the 2015 race.



The infamous Nürburgring is regarded as one of the most challenging and dangerous tracks in the world, while the SP3T class STI competes in is for turbocharged cars with an engine capacity of 2.0 litres or less.
