How 2017 Subaru WRX/STI Keeps Setting New Records – Part I

Subaru 1

There is a small island between Ireland and England that becomes a haven for sports and speed enthusiasts every year. Many of these speed freaks ride motorbikes at unreasonable paces to say the least. However, now Subaru has started making a habit of joining in and trying to prove that a four wheeler can also run with two wheels.

There has been no exception to the rule as far as the current year is concerned. Subaru is introducing its WRX STI, a race-prepped vehicle. The intention is quite simple and obvious. It will make an attempt to create another record of its kind around a road course that spans for about 60 km.

Earlier the team of Subaru had entered into a tie up with the famous driver, Mark Higgins and made him drive mostly all those WRX/STIs that were fresh from the showroom.  But, Subaru made a decision to do it little differently this time around.

Though Subaru did tie up with Mark Higgins even this year, the run was definitely different this year as it was not possible to simple go up to a Subaru dealer, located near your home and ask the salesperson that you want to own a WRX/STI that should be exactly like the one driven by Mark Higgins. No, that would not be possible this year as the one being driven by Higgins has a horsepower of 550 and is race-prepped.

The result was simply fabulous which in all likelihood must have made Subaru become ecstatic.  It did a lap of 17:35.139 along the racing course with an average of 207 kilometer per hour and exhibited a top speed of little over 271 kilometer per hour.

Subaru Reveals WRX STI Time Attack

RTHTR

Subaru, the Japanese automobile maker has come out with a road-legal and new version of the WRX STI. The company is hopeful of setting a new record in the month of May this year.

The model is being backed by the USA division of Subaru. The WRX STI is the all new race car that is legal on the road. This Japanese car manufacturer may once again reignite its much talked-about partnership with Prodrive, a Britain-based company that used to manufacture the WRC cars from Subaru.

It has been declared that Mark Higgins, the famous British rally driver and the present record-holder will drive the WRX STI Time Attack. It was in 2014 when Higgins had an incredible average of 187 km per hour and set the best time in a WRX STI of about 19 minutes and 25 seconds.

Though the roads were narrow, had big jumps with different types of walls, rocks and trees to cross as well as sheep and lamp posts to avoid, he was successful in topping 258 km per hour in his 2.5 liters STI.

Subaru declared that very little modifications were made to its 2014 model apart from some new springs, internal fire extinguisher, roll cage, Dunlop Derezza tires, and dampers. The all-new STI is truly a delight for all those enthusiasts who love fast sports cars.

Subaru claims that the new version is also road legal. The WRX STI is highly-tuned and is reportedly much more powerful compared to its street version.
