I post the above for those that insist that Subaru is no longer relevant in motorsports. Subaru certainly isn’t the only manufacturer in the SP3T class. Thanks to Car24News.com for the above article.
Note that the SP3T class requires 2.0L or less in engine displacement, as well. They’re using the EJ207 as a base in their NBR race cars, which doesn’t represent USDM but is nonetheless one of their core engines. This also means that this car will not be competing with the Focus RS, as the RS is using a larger displacement engine (2.3L, I believe). I mention this because several people insist that the RS can do better…it so, it’ll have to step down in displacement to prove that…that’s certainly not going to happen, because they’d have to either homogenize a 2.0L version of the car and then step down. Or, Subaru would have to use the 2.5L variant of the EJ, which would put them in the same class as the Focus RS would race within (that’s not going to happen, either).
