Default Factory Subaru Road Racing Team to debut Legacy Wagon in GAC at Lime

Factory Subaru Road Racing Team to debut Legacy wagon at Lime Rock Park

The factory Subaru Road Racing Team, managed by ICY Racing / Phoenix Performance, will debut its Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT wagon in the Grand Am Cup series at Lime Rock Park in Lakeville, CT, on May 26–27.

In its first full season of racing Subaru vehicles, ICY Racing / Phoenix Performance ran three 2005 Subaru Impreza WRX STI vehicles in the SCCA Club Racing National series to earn a National Championship along with the Northeast and Midwest Divisional titles. As team drivers Chuck Hemmingson, Kristian Skavnes, and Dave Rosenblum campaign their all-new 2006 STI cars in an effort to repeat as National Champions in the SCCA Club Racing Touring 2 Class, the team look to apply this success to run a limited schedule of Grand Am Cup events this year in the Street Tuner (ST) class.

We’re pleased to invite the Subaru enthusiast community to enjoy our hospitality (food and beverages) and meet the team on Friday, May 26th, from 11:30AM to 2:30PM, near our race trailer. Friday is Practice Day while Saturday is Qualifying (11:10AM) and the Race (at 2:45PM). We’ll be handing out hero cards and handshakes all-day on Friday and Saturday, so come out for an enjoyable race weekend with friends and family and cheer on the Legacy wagon of the Subaru Road Racing Team!

Here’s a link to the event schedule for reference:

Hello,

Congrats! Road racing Subarus has been my passion for half a decade now, and let me tell you, I wouldn't have it any other way. These are great cars that have awesome potential in road racing. It's great to see another team joining us in the Grand Am Cup series!

It'll be huge fun for us to tear down the track with you guys at Mid Ohio and GOTO and ICY together will be a sight to fear for the competitors!

Which other races are you doing?

Congrats again and GO SUBARU!

Thumbs up

Didn't this wagon make a sneak appearance at the all-Scooby event, Wicked Big Meet, in Mass this past weekend? There was a road race Legacy waggie there, silver & blue livery, it looked extremely nice.

I hope this doesn't negatively impact goto_racing at all.

Are trunk monkeys allowed in GAC?

Saw the car at Subaru Motorsports Day and it looks great. I hope to make it up to Lime Rock this weekend. The car and the team are also featured in the newest issue of Drive Subaru Performance magazine.

CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION

M3s may go BALLISTIC when blown off by scooby wagons on track. (this is why track med teams were invented!)

Car on display at WBM in Mass looked wicked good. Cage work was excellent. Ride height was "don't run over a pack of Camel straights or you'll bust something important" low. No doubt the motor is wicked strong.

More powa to ya!

At Laguna Seca we had zero pit problems and went from 22nd to 6'th in our debut race. You are thinking of Phoenix where we had a problem in the pits. We were running as high as 3rd though and still ended up 11'th after our slow pit. We hope to put everything together at Mid Ohio so expect a great result.

It will be cool to finally run against another Subaru.

Do I smell a podium sweep by the Subaru's?! GOTO in first and ICY 2nd ... wait no I'm a wagon mafia member so ICY wagon 1st, then GOTO Legacy second. I guess that's the best comprimise.

Hey someone run a wagon mafia sticker up to the ICY guys!

Good luck to all of the Subaru teams!

I'm still contemplating what'll look like seeing a Legacy wagon pass by the likes of Turner in their 3s...

Oh this is going to be a great year.

Huh?... How is it that Speed is not televising this event? Or is it going to be a mixed field with ST and DP together?


well crap! St event is saturday with no coverage. Covering stupid NExtel CRap instead.

I need to win the lottery so i can start a REAL racing channel. One that shows real racing.
