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:
