Subaru has been quiet about their participation in the 2011 Nurburgring 24 hours, but they did great in the race. Subaru STI managed to win its class at the world’s toughest moor race.

The All-Wheel-Drive WRX STI tS, prepared by Subaru Tecnica International (STI), the firm’s in-house motorsport division, completed 142 laps (approx 3,603km) in 24 hours – 76km further than the car covered in the keenly-fought 2010 race.  The WRX STI tS finished first in the SP3T class for sub-2.0-litre turbocharged vehicles, ahead of some notable race-proven machinery, including Team Raeder Mortorsport’s Audi TT S, Kissling Motorsport’s Opel Astra GTC and Michael Kraus’ Mitsubishi Lancer CTO.

Based on the standard Subaru WRX STI, the tS competition vehicle has been developed with a focus on weight-saving, improved aerodynamics and performance upgrades on its EJ20 turbo engine.  The Nürburgring 24-Hour racer retained the standard model’s permanent Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a setup that delivers unrivalled balance, stability and handling.

You can get 90 percent of the race-winning car’s performance on the road by buying a stock WRX STI for £32,995. Amazing value for money.
