SUBARU Owners Club of Jamaica (SOCOJ) had a banner turnout for their first public event for the year at the Mary Brown Corner Texaco in St Andrew, on Saturday.

"We estimate anywhere between 160 to 200 people passed through our event," Rhoneil Williams, SOCOJ events coordinator, told Auto.

The evening also saw the club adding six new members on the spot, with a potential 30 prospects for the future.

Starting at 6:00 pm, the service station packed with heavily-tuned performance Subaru models, especially Imprezas and Forestors. There was also support from a few of Kingston's other top clubs like Skunk Nation and TezzaWorld.

If the cars weren't enough to look at, auto fans could browse wares from the club's corporate partners such as Kingston Industrial Garage (KIG). As local dealers from the Subaru brand, they had the BR-Z on hand. Covenant Insurance Brokers, Tropical Battery, and Subaru tuners PnL Auto were present.

Keeping with the Subaru theme, videos were shown via a big screen TV and music courtesy Samsung. Thrown into the mix were a few random giveaways from the latest SOCOJ discount partner S-Tate Auto, Red Stripe, and Fire Blaze energy drink. Members also mingled, putting names to the many faces they'd encountered over time.

Up next for the club is the upcoming Import Tuner Night at the National Stadium in St Andrew, on August 16.

"We will be bringing a different feel, also to this event and showcasing the best our club has to offer," said Williams.

The SOCOJ annual rollout is scheduled for August 24 which will take participants to Reach Falls, Portland.

"We invite everyone to be part of this," Williams added.
