The 2015 Subaru BRZ GT300 that was unveiled at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2015 in January received significant changes this year. The 2015 BRZ has just made its first appearance on the track. R & D Sport, who manages the 2015 Subaru BRZ GT300 team, took the race car out to Okayama International Circuit this past weekend for its first official test day.
Check out the video clip below with the side by side differences between the 2015 BRZ GT300 and the 2015 race car. Even though the video is in Japanese you can get a good idea of the big changes made to the new BRZ.
STI team manager Hideharu Tatsumi explains the changes made to the BRZ’s front tire outer diameter that is now a compact 30mm, the shape of the front fender employs better aerodynamic characteristics and the hood has also been changed for improved aerodynamics in the front end of the 2015 Subaru BRZ GT300. The steering stability has also been refined for 2015.
Subaru will also bring the new 2015 BRZ GT300 to the new Subaru Ebisu showroom today (March 22) for a motor sports fan meeting. The team and drivers will be there to answer questions and talk about the new car and upcoming season. The free event will be open to only 80 fans and will also include the 2015 Subaru WRX STI Nurburgring 24-hr challenge car and 2015 WRX STI All Japan rally car.
The 2015 Subaru BRZ GT300 with all its changes will be ready to go for the first race on April 4-5 at the Okayama International Circuit. Stay tuned.
