Everytime I try this car on the 'Ring I find the PS3 puts me up against three or four particular vehicles... the Mark VI Race Car, P330 P4 Race Car, XJ13 Race Car and Corvette Z06 Race Car.
These are all 1960's Race Cars but they provide an amazing challenge for the stock Imprezza that was given to us as DLC. I am thankful I have kept it at stock as this challenge just wouldn't have worked at all. Everything must remain unchanged on the Imprezza including the tyres which are Racing Hard.
It may not seem that difficult to get in front but trying to get some meaningful distance between you and the four Race Cars is a nightmare, especially since your tyres will drop off the cliff and thus you will need to pit. So will the Race Cars mind you but again... part of the challenge. They will start to catch you up into lap 3 and I doubt there are many GT players who could stop that, additionally you stand zero chance of being faster in Sectors 7, 14 and 15. Beware these cars unhindred by back markers will gain about 2-2.5 seconds on Sector 7, they will gain about 3 seconds on sector 14 and another 1 second or so on Sector 15.
Your job is to just get as much distance between you and them in the other sectors and take car of those tyres, they take a beating from this car. And remember, there is no prize... just have fun. This is one of the better Arcade challenges that the machine will throw your way, just hope your Imprezza TC is still at stock level or you will not be able to experience this as a decent challenge. I suppose it also depends on what level the AI drivers are in these four cars, if the PS3 allocates high level drivers to them... your game is on

An interesting challenge, might attempt this but will need to check my Imprezza first. Also, you can get 4 laps out of RH on the ring with this particular car? That's a good effort nursing those tyres.
Nope, you will be pitting in Lap 3. Well... I always end up pitting in lap 3 anyway but then again that might be because I always like to be chased instead of chasing so I push it a little
