Default Subiefest 2008! Rock on, California!



Third annual Subiefest to be bigger and better than ever; with live music, on-track test drives of the hot, new 2009 Subaru WRX and the Subiesport all-Subaru Time Attack challenge.

More info: http://www.subiefest.com

Redmond, Washington (PR Web) August 8, 2008 -- Racing enthusiasts mark your calendars to join Subiesport Magazine and NASIOC.com on the weekend of September 6-7 for the largest all-Subaru motorsport event and festival in North America: Subiefest 2008, presented by Subaru of America and EDO Performance/Zero Sports.

"We're very excited that Subiefest will be just outside of Los Angeles this year, and that we can be part of it," said Edwin Tang, CEO of EDO Performance/Zero Sports. "We traveled over 1,000-miles to attend the 2007 event, and we've never seen such a dedicated and diverse gathering of car enthusiasts. The 2008 event will be incredible!"

Now in it's third year, the Subiefest all-Subaru Shootout and Showoff will be bigger and better than ever, as it takes over the Big Willow race track at Willow Springs, just outside of Los Angeles, California. For the main event, top tuners from around the country will face off in the Subiesport Time Attack Challenge, pitting highly-modified Subarus against the clock to determine who is the fastest in the land. This is where the talk, and the rubber, meet the road in a challenge for ultimate bragging-rights.

Japanese racing legend Tarzan Yamada is scheduled to appear, piloting the Crawford Performance 2008 Subaru STI Time Attack race car. Tarzan holds speed records around the world and is well known as regular on the JDM Option DVD series, as well as performing judging duties for the Formula D event series.

Looking to test drive a new 2009 Subaru WRX? Subiefest has partnered with Subaru of America to bring shoppers the ultimate test drive experience: the WRX Track Attack. This unique driving experience will put drivers behind the wheel of a brand-new 2009 Subaru WRX, along with a certified instructor, for a hot lap around the Big Willow race circuit.

More than just racing and driving, Subiefest will also feature live music from Seattle band, "The Endeavors" on the main stage. Their sound has been rocking audiences in the Pacific Northwest to rave reviews for their unique sound and vibrant performance. "The Endeavors" are scheduled to perform during the Saturday night Desert Party, as well as in-between races on Sunday.

Gate entry for Subiefest 2008 is only $10 per day, with practice and the all-night party on Saturday and the main event and show on Sunday. More information and links to register for racing or the Subaru 2009 WRX Track Attack can be found at the official event web site, www.subiefest.com.

We tried to partner with D1 for this year to bring it to NJ. Unfortunatly, that fell through after it was already to late to secure another venue. Hoping for 2009.

The Subiesport crew will be out for GT Live at VIR, maybe we'll see you there!

No, you have to pre-register for this activity which is on Saturday. Click the "Time Attack" button to get details. This is an extra-cost activity. If you want to drive the 2009 WRX on the track you must also pre-register.

To clarify: the no-extra-charge 2009 WRX Track Attack program is free, and requires pre-registration (which is now 1/2 full, so register now if you want to get in!). The 2009 WRX Track Attack runs both Saturday and Sunday.

Open lapping is available on Saturday for any make and model of car (whatever car you want to risk on a track). This activity is $200 (plus the $10 entry) which is a normal fee for track lapping pretty much on any major raceway. Sunday is for racing only.
