Subaru WRX STI Wins 6th Nurburgring 24-Hour Race, 2nd Consecutive

The 2019 Subaru WRX STI brings home another Nurburgring 24-hour race victory.


Subaru and Subaru Tecnica International (STI) have done it again. The Subaru motorsports team has now won their 6th SP3 class title and second-consecutive Nurburgring 24-hour race victory. They finished the grueling race this morning first place in class.

This was Subaru’s 12th Nurburgring 24-hour race challenge since 2008, their 6th class title and their fourth win in five years. The grueling race was held at the Nurburgring in the Eifel region of Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany this past weekend.

Drivers Carlo van Dam (Netherlands), Tim Schrick (Germany), Hideki Yamauchi (Japan) and Takuto Iguchi (Japan) drove the Subaru STI race car to victory. Subaru says the race was good from start to finish with no real problems according to reports from Germany.

This year’s 24-hour race was much different from last year when it was rainy and cold. The team had warmer temperatures and no rain made for a fast pace. The team finished in 19th place overall.

The victory is a testament to the Subaru WRX STI’s all-wheel-drive performance on circuits such as the Nurburgring, also known as the “Green Hell”, which is one of the most challenging and dangerous tracks in the world. Congratulations to Subaru and Subaru Technica International for winning their 6th Nurburgring 24-hour race and second-consecutive.

I watched the 24 H NBR on internet, from a French channel with English commentaries. Subaru of Japan covered the event as usual, but their live stream was not available here in France for this time, sadly.
What Subaru and STI have done at the Nürburgring with their 2019 WRX STI NBR is unbelievable: they never lost rank #1 in their SP3T class from the 1st to the final 145th lap.
And they finished in the 19th overall rank, amongst supercars like Porsche 911, Audi R8 and other Mercedes AMG.
Subaru won from far the category "Tourism Cars" and it's a genuine feat.
The rally car WRX STI, with its 4 doors and ugly trunk, became the track's queen during that week-end.
For sure, Subaru remains competent to produce amazing and reliable sports cars, at the top world level.
