Subinats 2016. Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit.

The third annual Subinats was for the first time held in Victoria, at the beautifully renowned Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit. The event officially kicked off on the Friday at Subaru Interactive, Docklands before the cars and drivers made their way down to the Island for a weekend of track racing, cruising and hanging out with Subaru enthusiasts from every walk of life. Saturday  began with a short cruise around the Bass Coast area, past Lang Lang through Kongwak, down to Inverloch, along the coast through Wonthaggi and back past San Remo to Cowes where a small show and shine (first three photos below) was set up at the Cowes Jetty and this is where I come in. Saturday lunch time we arrived at the small gathering and probably spent more time walking around, taking in the general atmosphere than firing off shots because Sunday was where it was all to be at…

Sunday we arrived at the track to the unmistakable sound of un-muffled flat fours going full throttle out around the circuit. Far from the quiet atmosphere of the Saturday meet, Sunday was awash with action; cars heading in and out from the circuit, people running around the pit and paddock area, changing tyres, checking fluid levels and doing general maintenance before once again heading back out. All to the soundtrack of laid back ‘Sunday Session’ type dance and bass. If Victoria is again to be the fortunate host of Subinats next year, you can be sure it’ll be an event I’ll again be attending.

We kick off track day with a few shots of Tad’s rear wheel drive converted GD Impreza. You may remember seeing a photo or two of this which I took at 100mm Certified last year where it was finished with a more street looking ‘stance’ approach.

At Subinats, Tad had opted for change to a street/racecar look, with huge boot mounted spoiler, more subtle black flake fifteen52 wheels and functional camber in the front. I have to say personally, I like this look alot more.
