Middleton to lap F1 GP track in Subaru Forester
- 15th March 2013, 10:36am
2012 SUV rally champions, Brett Middleton and Andrew Benefield, will drive their MRT Subaru Forester turbo diesel rally car around the Rolex Melbourne F1 GP track this Sunday 11.30am.
Combined with all other CAMS champions, the team will stand out with their bright pink Subaru featuring the McGrath Foundation colours.
“It’s a unique opportunity to show how fast a Subaru diesel can lap the F1 track,” Brett said.
“However, the strict parade 60 km/h speed limit will stop us making those little F1 engine cars look slow,” he added
The MRT Subaru has over 430 Nm of torque, which is interesting when you consider an F1 car only has 377!
