Subaru Prepares For A WRX STI Type RA Showdown
What is Subaru Motorsports up to now? The racing division will take two 2019 Subaru WRX STI Type RA performance cars and see who comes out on top. It’s an eight-day, 3,379-mile race on May 4-11 between Travis Pastrana and fellow Nitro Circus member Blake “Bilko” Williams. Subaru Motorsports USA will provide the WRX STI Type RA performance vehicles for the upcoming head-to-head showdown.
The track-ready WRX STI Type RA was designed for this and Pastrana is ready but he’s taking a Navy Seal with him just in case. His co-driver is author and former Navy Seal Marcus Luttrell. “I’m going with the ‘Lone Survivor,’” he said. “He’s mentally tough and has experience behind the wheel.”
Blake Williams is driving with his friend, Nitro Circus athlete and X Games gold medalist, Josh “Sheeny” Sheehan. “Last year was such an awesome time,” said Williams. “I had a blast battling with the competition and also the on-going rivalry with Travis. I can’t thank Yokohama, Nitro Circus, and Subaru Motorsports USA enough for the support, and the crew from One Lap for putting on such a rad event!”
The race will take place at the 35th running of One Lap of America courtesy of Yokohama Tire and Subaru of America. Who will win? Pastrana and Williams’ exploits will be posted here. Stay tuned.
