The Subaru Fun Crew car club has been in existence for just under 2 years now. Founded by a small group of like minded passionate Subaru owners, its primary aim is to promote all things Subaru and at the same time be family orientated for its members. Even though the club is still fairly new, it is growing at a rapid pace with branches in P.E, KZN as well as further up north, they are about 150 members currently and still growing.

When guys have similar interests they like getting together to share their craze, events is how they do that. So from breakfast runs to dyno days and everything in between, the SFC guys did it all, except their own private track day… until now!

With months of planning and hard work by the members it was finally going to happen. The date was set for Friday the 1st of May 2015 at Killarney International Raceway, the perfect track day venue in Cape Town, actually, the only track day venue in Cape Town.

Killarney is a great track to experience as it’s relatively quick with not too many turns making it great for the track day novice.

With my experience as a race instructor and having done thousands of laps at Killarney, I decided to host an introductory course on basic track day driving for the club 2 days before the event. I went through various subjects from the basics of how to prepare yourself, racing lines, driving dynamics and car control, video demos etc. It was very valuable information for someone who has very little or no knowledge on how to approach a track day. If anyone else is interested in taking this course you can contact me for further info.

With knowledge now in hand it was finally time to convert that theory and apply it on track. Pit lane was full and everyone’s feet was itching to go.

After a short welcome and thanks by the organisers and sponsors, the marshals gave a quick briefing on the do’s and don’ts. Everyone then proceeded to do the inaugural parade lap of the track. For many, this was the first time ever on a race track.

I think the parade lap only made the guys more anxious to get going.

Soon after it was done they finally got the chance to let their cars run free on track.

Mommy's in station wagons! Yep, SFC is all about having fun with the family!

This Subaru SVX was impressively neat and super rare also ended up going on track, well done!

Divided into 2 groups they started off cautiously, as I told them to, and quickly started to get the hang of things after a good few laps. Some guys were faster than others but it’s always important to remember to go at your own pace when on track.

A lot of guys just could not get enough of how well this Forester performed. It's such a sleeper.

With everyone getting a chance to go on track, some more than others, because they just couldn’t get enough, the smell of burning brake pads became a norm in pit lane, and someone occasionally shouting... “Don’t pull up the handbrake!”

Even this Toyota 86 was allowed to participate. After all, it does have a Subaru heart.

When I first heard this WRX I thought it sounded like a beemer. It had a distictive 6 cylinder sound. Nowdays you never know if theres a 2JZ under the bonnet, but from what I believe it is running the Subaru Tribeca engine. Interesting!

From mild to wild and everything in between it was all here.

An awesome day spent with family, friends and awesome cars on a race track. Subaru Fun Crew would like to thank their sponsors, Subaru Cape Town and Liqui Moly SA, for all their great support and helping them make this track day possible, as well as all the SFC members, family and fans who contributed and participated in a successful first track day of many more to come.
