2013 Subaru BRZ: Street Racer

2013 Subaru BRZ

I'd never driven the 2013 Subaru BRZ before so I decided to take the long way home. You can't tell much about a car when you sit in traffic except for the seats, which I really liked. I went into the Port of Long Beach and up and over the spectacular Gerald Desmond Bridge. But the best part was yet to come.

When I came down off the bridge I found myself on the race track for the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach. The view through the windshield is what the drivers will see — at a much higher speed.

    Nice detour to take! Looks like some open road - did you have any fun?

    I was just on the track too, but you're not quite seeing what the drivers will see in the race, as the track layout has the cars traveling on the left side of the road, even going around the left side of the roundabout at Fountain turn.
