Looking for a new podcast to listen to? A couple of friends from the Chicago area (including some Chitown Subaru members) have been recording a podcast about autocross, road tripping, and other various automotive material called The Brakefast Club. We encourage everyone to give these guys a listen, as we think it would appeal to a lot of the members in our community!
This past weekend, Chitown Subarus hosted a big meet at the Huntley Outlet Mall parking lot in Huntley, IL. Graham Gaylord was able to catch all of the action with some awesome drone footage of the entire event.
After the meet, all attendees took part in a large cruise to Dave & Busters for an evening of fun and games. We had cars 4 lanes wide at a few points, and we can't wait for our next big meet later in June!
Chitown Subarus had its official season opener last weekend, and we had overall close to 200 cars in attendance throughout the course of the day! The meet took place at the Marcus Cinema in Addison, IL and it just so happened to coincide with the weekend release of The Fate of the Furious!
Melissa Carlson from Subaru Drive magazine was also in attendance for the meet, and was kind enough to supply everyone with Subaru cow bells and die-cast cars for attendees!
After the meet was over, 177 lucky people had a ticket to watch the latest installment of The Fast and The Furious franchise. We are incredibly thankful to the Marcus Addison Cinema for letting us hold this event at their theater, and we're looking forward to bigger and better meets in the future!
Last Sunday was Chitown Subarus' inaugural weekly Sunday morning meetup at Punch Bowl Social in Schaumburg! We had a turn out of more than 100 cars, and everyone was enjoying some delicious breakfast, conversation, and coffee.
Member Rick Nieves created this fantastic video of the entire event. We hope to see more people come out every week in the future!
A couple of Chitown Subarus members had the opportunity to visit the 2017 Chicago Auto Show this past Friday ahead of the general public, and it was quite an amazing experience! The Subaru booth was obviously our first stop as we wanted to catch a glimpse of the new 2018 WRX and STi, which were both on display.
We also took the opportunity to walk around a take a look at some of the other vehicles at the show as well. Feel free to check out the gallery below to see what you can expect to see at the show this year!
Scott Speed and Tanner Foust were also both in attendance while we were at the show, displaying their new GRC liveries for their cars. We were able to speak to meet and speak with them briefly before they had to depart.
Big thank you goes out to Subaru of America for inviting us a guests to this great event!
