Article by Christian Andrei, on October 16, 2012

The Scion FR-S will go up against the other members of the GTS class such as the V8-powered Ford Mustangs and Chevrolet Camaros at the Pirelli World Challenge series in 2013. Robert Stout will be driving the Scion FR-S. During the 2010 season, Stout experienced a lot of success in racing a Scion tC.

In the 2010 campaign in Pirelli World Challenge, Stout earned the Drivers’ Championship, Rookie of the Year, and Sunoco Hard Charger Awards in the Touring Car class. In 12 starts and one pole, he earned five wins, nine podium finishes, and 11 top-five results.

In that season, Scion got its first-ever Touring Car Manufacturers’ Championship. Scion, together with long-time KSR partner, Lucas Oil, will be supporting the 2013 Pirelli World Challenge GTS campaign.

Stout said that he has been working on this for the last seven years and that being chosen by Scion is a “very special honor.” He said that the car “fits like a glove” and that the car is the hottest model released in years.

He said that like his team, Scion is composed of grass roots people. He said that he was pleased that he has the support from Scion and TRD, together with Lucas Oil, to compete with the best factory teams in the industry. He said that joining the group is one of the highlights of his career.
