In the world of event series, everyone wants to be the "est" - "biggest," "baddest," "illest," etc. And while many fall short, Subiefest - billing itself as "the largest all-Subaru motorsport event in America" - delivers. This year's event filled the Auto Club Speedway infield with more cars than any we've seen here all year. At a location where something is going on nearly every weekend of the season, that's saying a lot.
Subiefest is one part meet/show and one part open track event, inviting qualified attendees to run what they brung around the Auto Club infield. This being a Subaru event, and Subaru drivers generally being more open to flogging their cars than most, you'd be right to assume the number of cars laying down laps was solid. Dozens of BRZ and Impreza of every generation assaulted the asphalt, as well as the random Outback and Legacy. And not a single engine fire (we kid!)
Off track, pretty much any model/generation Subaru you can think of made in the past 40 years had at least one presence, but the vast majority was of the Impreza/BRZ persuasion, with lots of World Rally Blue. Speaking of which, as the presenting sponsor of the event, Subaru of America brought a grip of rally cars and an entire carnival tent of interactive Subaru displays, games, and more. Vendor alley included displays from event co-sponsors Renner Motorsport, 7LAutosport, RS25.com, Cobb, Yimisport, Nitto, and plenty of others.
