Subaru announced it will compete in Super GT, the Nürburgring 24 Hour Race and various rallies in calendar year 2013. In the homeland, Subaru will compete in the GT300 division. The weapon of choice is a bad-ass BRZ. As in previous years, the team will be operated in conjunction with "R&D SPORT" led by Director Shinji Motojima, and Tetsuya Yamano and Kouta Sasaki will be driving for the team. Subaru will further refine the car at an early stage to fight for both class and series wins. On the rally front the automaker will continue to support private drivers who will participate in the FIA World Rally Championship 2 (WRC2) and European Rally Championship (ERC), which was integrated with the former Intercontinental Rally Challenge (IRC). In Germany, Subaru won the SP3T class in the 24-hour race in 2011 and 2012 and will aim at its third consecutive victory this year.
