Wow, everyone wants to drive. I actually want to ride. Not everyday you ride shotgun with a pro-driver. Should be fun. I don't really get how the ticket or whole thing works, though. So you print it out and just show up at 12 or what?

Any more posts that consist of nothing but complaining about the looks or some critique about the '08 WRX will get a TO. If you want to voice your opinion about the '08 do it in either OT or the appropriate '08 thread in News and Reviews. This thread is not the place for you to cry about how they made a focus/civic/corrola/etc out of your "wrx" or any other lame attempt to make a joke.


Cliff notes for the reading comprehension impared:

This thread is for the event registration questions and comments about the actual event not for your personal opinion about the WRX.

I am driving the legend. it's a 1987.

I don't want to get banned either. I say no more- don't want to hurt the childish emotional background the new body/looks/engine came from.

I hope it does good, seriously. 2 extra mains and half the body. Fabulous. I'm almost giddy with joy.

I attended the Legacy Ride and Drive back in '04 at Hollywood Park, back when I was 19. It was 18 and over to drive the cars, when I had a chance to compare it against the 323i, I ended up buying one November that year.

Subaru is probably doing this to attract the middle-aged buyers they're craving to get with the new WRX.

It can't strictly be an insurance thing, because if Lexus trusts my 21 year old arse enough to drive a $60k LS460 at the Taste of Lexus, I can't envision Subaru having to pay more for insurance at the event.

Excellent Point. I couldn't agree more with your reasoning.

Why let anyone other than your target market drive and take up valuable seat time.

It's about this point that you have earned the fail boat.... but I'm too lazy to post it. Enjoy your vacation for lacking reading comprehension.

Our original discussion with them it was stated as 21 years old for both. They were informed by their Insurance that they will not allow anyone under 25 to drive the car a few days before the event. This was not their choice so it's either allow the event to go on or they just cancel the whole thing and never do another. Which would you prefer? Hopefully they can remedy the problem for later events like the potential STI Drive the Legend event that could happen.

For Subaru to do this it's a big step in the right direction and hopefully a sign of things to come so instead of complaining come out and support it. Who knows what could change.

For those of you who might have got confused car show participants get to drive the car before the gates open to the general public. That's why you are reccommended to get there at 8-9:30am as the driving session begins at 10am and gives more time for Car Show participants to spend with the car. So later spots will have to deal with the previous ham-fisted driving of the earlier sessions. Also Car Show participants will have other bonuses that will be announced as the day arrives.


Hence register for the car show!

Here's a chance to get out and have a good time. Stop complaining get out there, see the car in real life and drive it, if you are old enough - period.

After that if you don't like the car at least you'll have something to complain about.

My feeling is, due to the fact that manual transmission car are offer to drive at the event, the insurance company want more maturity from the participants. The older someone is, the less likely they want to abuse the clutch/tranny to see if they can break it.

That is SO TRUE. Event like this required tremendous effort and cost, I really appreciate Subaru doing this. Makes me want to sign up for the car show to support it. But my schedule don't allow me in the car show. Please let us know if the 150 cars quota is not filled up. I will make time for it.

It'd be great if we fill up all the spaces for the car show forcing them to even give us overflow spots. We want to show Subaru that we are their market and the customers who they need to appreciate most. I'm sure there's a lot of us who've owned multiple Subaru on here (I've owned 5) and we need to let them know that it isn't just us but we convince our family and friends to buy Subaru as well based on our experience. So please register for the car show and show your car wether it's stock or super modified as this is for all Subaru owners. There's rumor of quite a bit of media coverage for this outside of us. Hope to see you all there.
