Post ESX National Dealership Tour and Driver Contest

ESX Motorsports, NASIOC, and participating Subaru Dealers are teaming up for the ESX National Dealership Tour and Driver Contest!


Have you ever wanted to race a real race car? Here's your chance!

ESX Motorsports with Ali Afshar are holding a contest for someone to race their "Worlds Quickest & Fastest Subaru" at the "Battle of the Imports" season opener in Orlando, Florida! One lucky winner will get an all expense paid trip to Orlando, FL April 15th thru April 18th, 2010 to meet the team, learn about the car and race Ali Afshar's 1100 Horsepower ESX Subaru STI in professional competition!

Racing experience is recommended but not required - anyone can enter. Entry applications are available at the dealerships listed below - We encourage you to include your story and background, and any media explaining why you should be chosen to drive Ali's car. Even if you don't live near one of the dealerships listed, no problem! Contact someone that does and have them snag a form for you.

The ESX Subaru STI has won the Battle of the Imports finals in 2008 & 2009! The car is ready, are you?

Here's a link to our car in action: http://www.youtube.com/user/ESXmotorsports

ESX Motorsports and NASIOC hope to see one of you winning the season opener in Orlando!

Come see the ESX Motorsports Subaru STi and the ESX team at the supporting dealerships below on our 2010 ESX Subaru National Dealership Tour!

----

FAQ:
1. Q) Is this some sort of marketing beauty contest? Do I really have a chance if I have no racing experience?
A) Nope, not a beauty contest at all, and no racing experience is required - we look at every single entry and decide the winner based on their own stories and merits

2. Q) Isn't Rigoli's Impreza the quickest and fastest?
A) Yes and no. Rigoli's GC uses a domestic trans, 9" rear end, and a 6-cylinder engine. It's also not AWD. Our car is a 100% 3200lb STI body with complete Subaru drivetrain, with full interior, on radials with full exhaust, registered as a street car in California.

3. Q) Why are you guys doing this?
A) Because ESX Motorsports, NASIOC, and your local dealers believe in Subaru performance and want to help cultivate a healthy enthusiast culture. We want to let Subaru know we're out there!

4. Q) I own/manage a dealership and want in on ESX's 2010 National Dealership Tour - I want to support my local enthusiasts through NASIOC! What do I need to do?
A) PM "Geoff" on NASIOC and he'll help you out

5. Q) Why don't you guys just post a PDF of the entry form for all of us too far from a dealership involved in the 2010 ESX National Dealership Tour? It's 2010...we have the interwebs.
A) ESX Motorsports has agreements with participating dealerships that they will be the sole distributors of the entry forms, however there's no reason why one local NASIOCer can't pick up a bunch of forms and send them out to fellow NASIOCers. Ask your local dealership to get involved - we will be doing this tour continuously, with more contests, and hope to add more dealerships to the list!

6. Q) Is this ONLY for Subaru owners?
A) No! Anyone's welcome to stop by any of the Subaru dealerships listed to pick up an application. Even if you don't drive a Subaru today, you might be driving a 1100HP Subaru soon!

Hey everyone,

This is Ali Afshar from ESX.

Before the repost, many of you had posted replies about our contest with concerns that you did not live near one of the 2010 Participating Subaru Dealerships and the difficulty you'd have in getting an application.

We have come up with a solution for you. I recently emailed all our participating dealers to post the applications on their websites. I just sent this email out, so it might take a little while before all the dealers get to it.

Now if you can't walk into a dealership and get an application, then you can get one from their website. You can also call the dealers and request an application to be faxed to you. Just remember this contest is new so some dealer receptionists that answer the phone might not be up to date, so you might have to insist.

A list of all our 2010 Participating Subaru Dealers with direct links is below:

Thanks and good luck!!

Ali

W&L Subaru is in PA. Ask for Rob or Andy Long.
They're very cool and we've participated with them at a couple of their Subaru Shootouts in the past.

When does the form have to be turned in? Is there a list of rules/regulations?

I live right down the street from Maita Subaru in Sacramento and saw this car in person at SubieFest '09. This thing would be an absolute dream to drive.

We'll be doing an event on April 3rd at Maita Subaru so make sure you come out to it. But I would get my app turned in asap. The last day for us to receive them is April 11th, but I wouldn't wait until then.

Thanks

Ali

BOTI used to come to RT66 in Joliet. A SW burb of Chicago. Then just stopped coming. I guess we werent the cash cow they needed to keep coming.

It WAS my favorite event of the summer.

I'd love a chance to participate. After all, i do have a ESX IC on my car

Any love for Morrie's Subaru in Minnetonka MN?
