NEW STI RA MAKES DE­BUT AT GOOD­WOOD

Japanese Performance - - NEWS -

The car with the long­est name in re­cent his­tory broke cover at the fa­mous Good­wood Fes­ti­val of Speed hill­climb re­cently. The new Sub­aru WRX STI Type RA NBR Spe­cial, is set to at­tempt a Nür­bur­gring speed record with for­mer Bri­tish Rally Cham­pion and stunt driver Mark Hig­gins be­hind the wheel. In fact, the RA stands for ‘Record At­tempt’ and ex­plains why they’ve gen­er­ally been the light­weight mod­els in the past. The first RA was ac­tu­ally a Legacy in ’89, that broke the FIA World Speed En­durance Record. De­tails of the STI RA NBR spec are thin on the ground but it’s pos­si­ble Sub­aru will try and beat the 7m 53.08 lap time set by Rev­o­lu­tion Mo­tor­store in their Project STI.
