2023 Subaru N24 Challenger
The 51st Nürburgring 24-Hour Race will take place in Germany on May 20-21, and Subaru will compete in the SP4T class*3 with the SUBARU WRX NBR CHALLENGE race car.
The Team General Manager Hideharu Tatsumi and the Team Manager Takuya Sawada both from STI will lead the team and four drivers, Carlo van Dam (Netherlands), Tim Schrick (Germany), Hideki Yamauchi (Japan), and Takuto Iguchi (Japan) will be driving for the team.
The 2023 race car will be brand-new, based on the new WRX. The Project Leader Naoki Shibuya is in charge of development of the new race car. Last year Subaru raced with the previous-gen WRX but a tire blowout forced it to abandon the race.
The team is challenging for the first championship in the SP4T class with race car powered by 2.4 litre direct injection turbo engine and Subaru Global Platform.
Also, 8 service technicians selected from Subaru dealerships around Japan will again join the team to support the race. Subaru has had dealer technicians participate in overseas motorsport races since 1990, a unique initiative aimed at delivering “Enjoyment and Peace of Mind” to customers by enhancing the technical skills of its service technicians.
