    Subaru Showdown July 21: Autocross w/ NO WORKING THE COURSE!

    Hey Subaru Owners, itís that time of year again! Folger Subaru/Subaru of America is holding the Subaru Showdown at Carolina Motorsports Park on July 21ST! The event, for those who went last year, is an excellent opportunity to meet people within the Subaru and autocross communities, and enjoy your Subaru while blasting around a safe and controlled autocross course held on one of the best road courses in the South East!

    The event is one day this year, but you get a lot of bang for your buck with this event. Autocross courses will be set up on both the East and West Courses of the road course (unlike last year where the West Course was an autocross and the East was a PDX), and THERE WILL BE NO WORKING THE COURSE!!! Thatís right! All you do is show up, and run! The CMP staff will be taking care of the course and timing so that leaves more time for car setup and socializing, with no need to stand out working the course!


    This is the perfect opportunity to try out autocrossing if you are new to the sport or have been considering giving it a try, with plenty of other Subaru owners to hang out with! It provides a safe environment to take your car to the limit, or just enjoy a spirited drive dodging some cones! There will also be ride-alongs in a brand new STi, the CMP kart track will be open throughout the event with free rides being given away throughout the day and there may even be a surprise guest making an appearance!

    Subaru has put forth a major effort to make this event happen, and was really pleased with the outcome last year, but we need to make the turnout even greater this year so they can keep hosting events like this in the South East, so tell everyone you know! Event cost is $60 for a minimum of three runs on each of the courses, and $68 dollars for a minimum of three runs AND a barbecue dinner Saturday night! Entrantsí best times from each of the courses will be added for a combined time for the event, and this yearís setup should provide an excellent day of autocross with NO COURSE WORK and tons of cool Subarus from around the South East!


    Online registration is REQUIRED and can be found, along with more information, at:

    MotorsportReg.com : Carolina Motorsports Park announces Subaru Showdown Auto-X (Sat 21, Jul 2012) info at Carolina Motorsports Park, Kershaw, SC 29067 (8532)

    Tell everyone you know as we need an excellent turn out to show Subaru that the South East means business when it comes to their cars!

    Feel free to post up if you have any questions, this year should be a great event! We welcome spectators of all ages!!

    Josh

    would just like to add that the event is OPEN TO ALL MAKES!! So tell all your non-subaru friends to come out and have a fun day of autocross, it's going to be a great day for all experience levels, and with no course work there will be plenty of time for car setup and socializing

    BUT THERE'S MORE!! There will be three Palmetto Motorsports Club trackdays being given away at the event! Valued at $250 and can be used at any of the 40 track days held at CMP for the Palmetto Motorsports Club every year! Track days will be given to Fastest Time Pax, Fastest Time Raw and a third track day will be awarded to a random competitor! So come on out!

    The track on the East course should prove to be VERY fast (as there isn't much you can do to slow that one down), but still remaining a safe environment for autocross! Register now as space is limited!!! www.subarushowdown.com
    Also Subaru owners will receive $5 off registration! There is also an option to pay on site, but register now as space is limited!

    novices are welcome! there will be instructors on hand to help out and ride along should you feel uncomfortable, especially on the faster east course.

    Also there will be camping available on friday and saturday night at the track, and we're trying to get a large meet organized to so come out even if you don't feel like running, everyone will have a chance to win free passes for the go art track (which is a full kart road course) and ridealongs in some 2012 Subarus (2 STis, and we're working on getting a BRZ as well!).
