The WRX STI Type RA NBR Special is set to make its public debut and take on Goodwood’s famous Hill Climb at the Festival of Speed.
The RA designation stands for “Record Attempt” and has been applied to various Subaru performance models. The original venture took place in 1989 when a competition version Subaru Legacy broke the FIA World Speed Endurance Record by clocking over 62,000 miles in 18 days and set a top speed record of 138 mph.
Furthering this spirit of endeavour, a race prepared WRX STI Type RA NBR Special will attempt a Nürburgring speed record this summer after its runs up the Goodwood Hill Climb in the Time Attack Open class and will be driven by rally and stunt driver Mark Higgins.
Mark recently drove a WRX STI down St Moritz’s Olympic Bobsled run, and set the lap record at the Isle of Mann TT in 2016.
Subaru will also be at the Moving Motor Show on Thursday, with cars available for visitors to try up the Hill Climb.
Adrian Flux Subaru Racing will also be in attendance on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd July with Ash Sutton, Josh Price and James Cole for a meet and greet on the Subaru Stand at the Moving Motor Show at 11:00 and 16:00.
