Legacy B4

This year subaru with be using the Legacy B4 2009 for the GT300. Hope this race comes back to Califonia again. I went to the JGTC event couple years ago. I really enjoyed going to that event. It probably won’t be able to come back till the economy is alot better. Then people will have the money and time to go watch this race again.

Seibon Customer Appreciation Day

Seibon held an event today for there customers. It wasn’t to far from my house. I decide to drop by to visit Jason for a bit. Didn’t stay to long since it was so hot. Wasn’t much people since it was way to hot.  They aslo had to promote the event a little bit better. I heard about this event last minute from Jason.
