Pic of the Week: Subaru versus John Cleland

It's a bit of a motorsport-heavy POTW double-header today, but we hope that today's selections both appeal, one for the dribbleworthiness of the machinery featured and the other for sheer spectacle.

First up is some hi-res imagery of the new Subaru BRZ Super GT racer, which oozes all the drama that its roadgoing cousin lacks, and which will compete in the GT300 class of the Japanese Super GT series next year.

(It's been shot by our chums at Autocar, whose other snappery is now also available via the magic of a free iPad app).

And if that doesn't float your boat, then perhaps this second pic, inspired by my admittedly rose-tinted blog about the BTCC yesterday, might.

It's John Cleland flying through (we think) Dingle Dell at Brands in the 1995 BTCC, on the way to his final championship. Never has a humble Cavalier looked so glamorous...

    It was duffers but it was Tim Harvey in the Laguna going for a gap that wasn't there in 1994. wink

    We were at Duffus Dip (Knockhill) when Tarquini rolled his Alfa 155 in the BTCC in the 80's, I think it was Menu or Plato that had touched the back of the car as the Alfa was taking the fist bend at the end of the main straight, huge, huge incident but fortunately gabrielli walked away unscathed! Great era of BTCC that was.......
