Subaru STI Wins Anew at Nürburgring 24-Hour Race
No amount of rain or hail can stop Subaru and its performance division, STI, from scoring a back-to-back class win at what’s dubbed the most grueling race in the world: the Nürburgring 24-Hour Race.
Thanks to the teamwork from its trio of drivers, Carlo van Dam (Netherlands), Marcel Lasée (Germany), and Hideki Yamauchi, the No. 106 Subaru WRX STI NBR Challenge 2016 crossed the finish line ahead of the Audi TT.
En route to the win, the specially prepared Subaru WRX STI completed 121 laps (3,070 kilometers) in 24 hours. This marks the ninth consecutive year of STI’s participation in the race and its 4th win in the SP3T class following its victory last year.
