On September 6th & 7th the nations top Subaru’s met up at Willow Springs Raceway to party down, share their knowledge, and battle it out in the Time-Attack.
EDO Performance was proud to present Subiefest 2008, the largest Subaru gathering in America! EDO was there both days as Subaru enthusiasts gathered to watch the best of the best go head to head in an all out blown Subaru Time Attack! Aside from the excitement on the track attendees welcomed tons of vendors, live music, test drives in the new 2009 WRX/STi and much more!
Saturday started off with EDO in full force! We had our tent set up and products out for display for the many gathering Subaru fans. Some coming from as far away as Oregon! There was an array of cars on the track, not just Subaru, demonstrating their skill and abilities. EDO had 3 cars that day, preparing for Sunday’s big event. Thomas Smith was out representing EDO and Flat 4 Las Vegas in his 2006 Subaru WRX. Scott VanderHeide was present in his RobiSpec/EDO 2004 STi. EDO even resurrected our EDO/EAT Motorsports 2006 STi for this event; driven by Nikki and RJ of Acutech Autos. Also there Saturday was DC shoe founder and Rally Racer himself Ken Block out on the track taking his Monster STi for a spin and signing autographs throughout the day.
Sunday proved to be the big day as even more fans gathered to watch the all Subaru Time Attack event! There was tons of competition out but in the end EDO performed well! Congrats to Scott VanderHeide for finishing in the top 5 in Modified class. Another congratulations to Thomas Smith for taking 2nd in the Stock class with the Crawford 2008 STi just edging past him! Congratulations to Mike McGuinness and his wagon for taking best in show at Sunday’s car show. All in all it was a great showing despite the heat, oil spills and wipeouts. EDO Performance is grateful to have hosted Subiefest 2008 can’t wait for next year’s event. A special thank you to those who supported EDO: our drivers Thomas Smith, Scott VanderHeide & Niki Tam, as well as Acutech Autos, EAT Motorsports, Auto HQ, Flat 4 & Subiesport magazine.
