2 things stand out about JRM’s 2015 Subaru WRX STI NR4-spec

The 2015 Subaru WRX STI NR4-spec developed by STI and JRM is getting attention. Who is looking at the rally car?

British Rally Championship Manager, Iain Campbell is checking out the newest production-specification rally car and he likes what he sees. The 2015 Subaru WRX STI NR4-spec is ready and being tested by race teams in Europe. They are checking out the STI for the new-look British Rally Championship (BRC) that will feature a BRC 2 category when it returns in 2016.

They believe this performance car could be a perfect fit for the class next season. Campbell got a chance to experience the performance of JRM’s NR4-spec Subaru WRX STI and spoke positively after a test ride around MIRA’s ride and handling circuit with JRM's experienced test and development driver, Terry Kaby. Campbell sampled its performance from the co-driver’s seat.

Campbell was impressed with two things right from the first test ride. He says, “There is a perception that production cars are big, heavy and unwieldy on the stages. But the JRM Subaru is far from that. I was very, very impressed with the way the car handled, particularly on a MIRA track that has some challenging contours and a camber that was vicious."

The British Rally Championship Manager was also impressed with the new engine modifications. “Another thing that really impressed me was the torque of the car. It was constant and just kept going and going. The JRM Subaru was an impressive bit of kit and it was extremely useful to get a closer look.”

Look for the newest production-specification rally car, JRM’s 2015 Subaru WRX STI NR4-spec to be winning plenty of races soon. JRM Senior Sales Manager, Steve Smith says, “Our WRX STI is a serious rally car and is a great option for teams and drivers that have a limited budget, but want to win their category in one of the world’s most prestigious rally championships.” Stay tuned.
