The new 2015 Subaru WRX STI Nurburgring 24 hour race car is making final preparations. Will it be ready?

The STI team is making final preparations this week on the 2015 Subaru WRX STI NBR, and its a busy time for the team as they get ready for the grueling Nurburgring 24 hour race.

Subaru WRX STI NBR Challenge 2014

It’s called the "Subaru WRX STI NBR Challenge 2014." Subaru and STI have collaborated to created the new race car based on the 2015 WRX STI production car. While the WRX STI NBR car employs special parts and is also tuned for the grueling endurance race, it uses the same core parts as the ones employed for the mass-produced WRX STI. The production STI is powered by a 2.5-liter turbo boxer engine, and the STI NBR race car uses the new Subaru 2.0-liter powerplant.

Nurburgring SP3T class

Subaru competes in the SP3T class, for turbocharged engines displacing 1.75 to 2.0 liters, and will run in a competitive class with racing versions of cars from Audi, Volkswagen and Seat. The new 2.0-liter engine powers the new-generation 2015 Subaru WRX and many believe its a better engine than the production 2.5-liter the new 2015 STI comes with.

Final testing this week

Subaru and STI have been testing the 2015 WRX STI NBR race car and it looks like its ready to compete for a win. They have taken the car to Laguna Seca and run the “Corkscrew.” And they have run the car and completed the fourth round of the VLN which took place at the famed Nurburgring last month.

The purpose of the testing is to narrow down the setup specs on the new 2015 Subaru WRX STI that sees a full model change this year. It’s a totally new car that needs to be calibrated for the grueling 24-hour race. The STI team has checked the basic performance of the race car. Now the 2015 WRX STI NBR team is gearing up to be ready for the 24-hour race that will be run this Saturday June 21. Check out how you can watch the race live here.
