Subaru BRZ RA Racing AnnouncedMonday, January 28, 2013 7:31 by Arman Barari
Subaru announced a new version of the BRZ sports car for the Japanese market. Sporting the RA badge, this version of the BRZ is designed for a one-make race series, offering an affordable and extremely fun form of motorsport for the masses.
Compared to the standard BRZ, the RA Racing model features a number of performance upgrades and some necessary safety equipment. It gets new specially designed air ducts for the new ventilated disc brakes, a new engine oil cooler, and Torsen limited slip differential.
Since the RA is still a road car at heart, you do get some convenience features as well, such as manual air conditioning, which is a nice feature to have in the heat of the battle. You also get a 6-point roll cage, 4-point seat belts, special floor mats, and extra transport hooks.
Subaru BRZ RA will compete in GAZOO Racing 86/BRZ Race series. It is exclusive to Japan for now, but it is only a matter of time before enthusiasts in Europe and America make their own series.
