Grip : GRIP October 2012
PBMS BRZ GRIP BRZ GETS MOTORSPORT MODS ONE of the year’s most anticipated motorsport packages was unveiled at the Australian International Motor Show (AIMS), in the form of a potent track-ready Subaru BRZ. Subaru Australia is displaying the latest creation from long-term partner, New Zealand-based Possum Bourne Motorsport (PBMS). Subaru enjoyed a decade of dominance in the Australian Rally Championship, working alongside PBMS. Subaru Australia Managing Director, Nick Senior, said: “We’re delighted to display the PBMS BRZ motorsport project car. “This car will take the BRZ thrill to a whole new level for those that want some serious track work.” Senior said while Subaru Australia had no current plans to re-enter the motorspor t arena itself, the overwhelmingly positive response to BRZ had brought a huge level of enquiry from motorspor t enthusiasts. “There’s a massive level of interest among motorsport fans, so we’re keen to tap into that market. “From day one we have always imagined the BRZ would appeal to the ‘weekend warriors’ - people who enjoy club level motorsport activities. “PBMS has developed packages that will appeal to these enthusiasts. It is a company that has developed an international reputation for excellence in engineering and fastidiousness in at tention to detail.” PBMS have a huge list of options for the motorsport BRZ, and basically customers can start with an entry-level price and then cherry-pick components to suit their purposes. PBMS has developed three track-ready packages.
