At the Track **New Pics**GOTO:Racing's new race car for 2006: The Legacy GT

For everyone who has been interested in seeing these cars raced, we may have the cure for you. Last week we brought a 2005 Legacy GT into our stable and began it's preparation for wheel-to-wheel competition in 2006. We are building to both Grand-Am Cup and US Touring Car specs, and the car will be ready for testing after the new year.

Below are some pics from the first week of the build. Right now we are coming up to the end of the fabrication stage. I will post updates as the project takes shape. Enjoy!

Ready to start building?




Aluminum bumper beams! Pleasant Surprise.


Cage is not quite complete on sunday, but close. Door bars and harness bars are all that is left.






Stay tuned for more...

All I can say is WOW. It looks like I might be traiding my baja T in for a 06 LGT sometime after the new year. I just have run into some relly back luck with my baja.

A really car? Whats that?

Good luck with the project guys. Keep the pics updated and progress of the build up! I'm jealous with all the project and different classes/cars that your team gets to play with.

I know, isn't is amazing the things we would rather have than money...

Seriously though, this project is going to be possible because of the contributions of some really generous people and companies. I will detail them all as the car comes together and their contributions become clear.

To start, we have to thank SOA for their support in getting this project started, and helping us to work on homologations for the various racing series we are looking into.

I'll have to get into that later when I have such funds to run NASA's USTCC Which series do you guys plan to run in?? It's going to be a little bit hard to compete against fellow STi's in the same category and class..

Will you let us know how the suspension likes going lower instead of the rally type Impreza suspension only liking to go up? (speaking in relation to the car and ground)
