The NR4-specification Subaru WRX STI has been entered by Subaru of America and will carry a distinctive livery that is reminiscent of the blue and yellow colours that adorned McRae’s title-winning Subaru two decades ago. 

The car has been built by British preparation specialist, JRM, and is the newest production rally car in the world. It will be driven by seven-time Rally America Champion David Higgins this weekend and he tested the car in mid-Wales this morning as part of Subaru of America’s pre-event countdown.

“It definitely brought a lump to my throat to see the car in its blue and yellow livery and I’m sure it will be pretty emotional when Jimmy (McRae, Colin’s father) waves us across the start ramp on Thursday,” Higgins said.
