Subaru debuts peer-thru 360-degree video for mobile, YouTube, Facebook

Subaru said it has released a new 360-degree video playable on their Subaru Motorsports app (Android, iOS) that not only provides a full 360 degree view but also allows users to peer through the roof of a car, offering an unprecedented view of 2015 Rally America Champions David Higgins and Craig Drew at full speed in their WRX STI rally car.

When Subaru published their Subaru Motorsports app in July of 2014, it was the first motorsports app in the world to feature interactive high-definition 360 degree video captured during competition. The app is also compatible with VR headsets to keep up with the rapidly expanding video wearable´s industry.

Subaru filmed their first peer-thru 360 degree video at the 2015 Lake Superior Performance Rally, set in the upper peninsula of Michigan. David Higgins won the event, closing out an undefeated season in the Rally America Championship; breaking a 28 year-old record.

Full coverage of Subaru Rally Team USA is available on the Subaru Motorsports App.
