Jul 08, 2014 - 8:16 PM - by AutoGuide.com


AutoGuide hot-shoe Dave Pratte is headed to Newfoundland, Canada in September, piloting a Scion FR-S with fellow Speed.Academy Editor Peter Tarach during the grueling Targa Newfoundland tarmac rally.

In partnership with Scion Racing, Dave and Peter are rebuilding a hand-me-down FR-S from Scion Canada’s Tuner Challenge program, starting with a complete redo of its roll cage (the car was otherwise stock when they adopted it).

Subaru BRZ to Live On into Second Generation

The fate of the car was questioned after a report surfaced last week claiming that Toyota was going to ditch Subaru to collaborate with BMW on the next-generation of the FR-S, which would spell the end for the BRZ. Toyota and BMW are working together on a new car, but that is likely to be a more powerful sports car that will sit above the FR-S.
