Default Drive the Legend: 2008 WRX Ride, Drive and Subaru car show Aug. 11th...

When: August 11th 2007, Noon-8pm
Where: Santa Anita Raceway, Arcadia, CA

Subaru of America Inc. in conjunction with The Monkey's Trunk and NASIOC.COM presents:


The Drive the Legend event will be the only ride and drive event open to the public for the new 2008 WRX. You've seen the reviews but now this is your chance to make your own choice on the new 2008 WRX by getting behind the wheel on a closed course and be driven by a professional driver on course as well.

There will also be a Subaru only Car Show presented by The Monkey's Trunk/NASIOC.COM. Entry and acceptance into the car show will allow you to arrive and drive the 2008 WRX before the general public and a chance to win great prizes with your "Tuned" Subaru.

To register for just the ride and drive be sure to click below:
