The Japanese manufacturer’s new car, which is built to JAF GT300 rules, first broke cover when images appeared on social media of it running in a private test at Fuji Speedway.

Subaru itself then published three images of the new machine, which ran in plain livery, on its Twitter account on Thursday (see top).

The road-going version of the new BRZ is slated for release in late 2021, but Subaru’s images suggest the new car is likely to hit the track at the start of next season.

It will replace the current-generation BRZ that has been in service since 2012, making it the oldest design on the GT300 grid.

Takuto Iguchi and Hideki Yamaguchi have formed Subaru’s driver line-up since the 2015 season, and finished fifth in this year’s standings with no wins but one pole and two podium finishes.
