National novelties: Clark’s Gobstopper Subaru and Dutch F3 Larkens

The sensational new Subaru BRZ fielded by Olly Clark, son of rally legend Roger, did not make it into the points-scoring rounds at the Brands Hatch Time Attack event on Sunday. The car, christened Gobstopper 3, broke its gearbox after setting the track alight in practice.

The four-wheel-drive machine’s turbocharged engine produces 930bhp and the car was due to make its competitive debut in the MotoFest Coventry event’s sprint earlier this month, but the closed public roads event was cancelled due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
