The WRX Club of Victoria recently hosted its first track day for their 2016 Motorsport Championship at Phillip Island’s Gran Prix Circuit.

The event was not just limited to Subaru WRX and STI’s however, the track day was open to many other makes and models including European, Japanese, Porsche and one very special Ferrari 458. The result was friendly and respectful competition with a variety of cars that most competitors appreciated.

For the Subaru’s on the circuit there were over 40 turbocharged WRX Imprezas that raced in the two most competitive classes (Clubman and Sprint), resulting in less than a second separating the top 3 racers of the day.

And best of all, contrary to Rebecca Judd’s Melbourne weather prediction; the rainfall held off just long enough for the track day to conclude. While racers enjoyed the warm tarmac; many spectators walked away with a case of sunburn.
