The Richard Burns Foundation was able to take refuge from the elements at Chatsworth in a brand new 'E-Z Up' portable shelter - June 2009
The swish RBF-branded item was kindly donated by money raised by personal donations from club members of the RB5 Owners Club and RB320 Owners Club, who have been unstinting supporters of the Foundation from day one. It certainly did its job at Chatworth, and you will be able to spot it at motorsport events all around the country from now on.

Available only in Obsidian Black, the RB320 features bespoke 18 ins alloy wheels and specially developed Prodrive suspension comprising Bilstein dampers, a sports spring kit with revised rear anti-roll bar and a ride height lowered by 30 mm at the front and 10 mm at the rear.

The PPP boosts power to 320 PS at 6,000 rpm with torque leaping to 332 lb ft at 3,700 rpm. This reduces the 0-60 mph time to 4.8 seconds with a 0-100 mph time of 12.2 seconds.

In addition, customers will also be able to register on-line and reserve the limited-edition number of their choice via a special sub-section of Subaru’s website.
Finally, the first car is to be given away in a special raffle organised by Autosport magazine, donated by Subaru (UK) Limited. The proceeds will go to the Richard Burns Foundation which helps those suffering from serious injury and illness.
