Default The Big Event 2 with Dave Mirra - Gillman Subaru Southwest in Houston, TX!



HOUSTON, TX - AUGUST 21, 2010

The BIGGEST Subaru meet in Texas is coming soon. Dave Mirra. Lots of Subarus. A car show. Shop day. Barbecue. A Mirraco Bike Give-away. Wally. -- too much going on to list. Come join your fellow NASIOCers for a day of fun and festivities. There's going to be plenty for all to do, and best of all, the event is free! Gillman Subaru is fully sponsoring the event, so all you have to do is show up and have a good time! Wally and the rest of the Gillman crew are looking forward to seeing you.

Dave Mirra will be at the event from:
10:00-11:30 & 12:00-1:30
http://www.davemirra.com/

Don't forget your Sharpie and any memorabilia you'd like autographed. (Subaru stuff will be available for purchase, too.) There will also be a chance to win a bike from Mirraco!


(1) Shop Day:

(2) Car Show

Rules and Registration:

- There will be a required $20 payment to Gillman for using their bays. With this fee you will get two bands and one t-shirt. One band is for you and one for a passenger.

- If you are going to be in the shop you are required to have a band.

- If you are not working on a car, but want to be in the shop you will need to pay $5 for a band.

- No one under 13 will be allowed in the shop area.

- We are doing this to keep the shop area a little less congested for everyone’s safety.

- No open toed shoes, flip flops, or sandals.

- There is a 2 hour maximum per car per shop bay. If you run over the 2 hour maximum, you will be charged an additional $20, plan your time accordingly.

- The money collected for working on your car, and entry into the shop will help to offset the additional required safety equipment, and other needs for the day.

Car Show Pre-Registration Thread:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=2020506

With last year's count of cars, we'd like to shoot for 40-50 Subarus in addition to another 50+ mix of an open class. All entries will receive a free goodie bag, including an Event T-shirt, a certificate from Royal Purple for a case of oil (6 qts), among other good stuff.

Last event was exclusive to only Subarus, ...this year we've opened it up to everyone. We have many of Houston's local teams bringing a selection of thier cars, as well as a "Subaru" only area and awards, including special award presented by Dave Mirra.

would any of you Houston Nasiocers be too offended if a former STI owner and current outback XT owner shows up, but drives his 240Z to put in the open class car show? I am in the market for a 2011 WRX

Does anyone know if there will be any on the spot tunning available there? I need help with my intake making my check engine light come on. Its throwing the P0000 code...oir something like that. It has something to do with the valves misfiring.

I will be interested in test driving some new cars for my purchase in the coming months.

will there be a 2010 or 2011 Legacy GT there?

Also will want to test drive a 2011 WRX and STI if you have one available.
