When used on cars it usually stands for Grand Sport Racing (pronounced as with the French 'Grand Prix'). This certainly fits in with early Subaru advertising for the GSR. Subaru always emphasised the concept of racing in early GSR advertising literature.

I would like to know if the Leones competing in the 70s was only Coupe or it was and 4door sedan.

I have in mind the one competing in the 1977 London-Sydney marathon.It was some 4door 4WD(?)sedan.Any infos about this car?

I am looking,also,for pictures with Leones(1st generation) and ff1s in competition.

In Australia Subaru started racing from 1973 using GSRs in both road and rally races.No sedans until much later.
