The Subaru Docklands dealership in Melbourne is giving 2015 Subaru WRX STI buyers a special treat this next weekend.

On Saturday August 16, Docklands will showcase Subaru’s exceptional Symmetrical AWD capabilities by bringing in tons of snow and dumping it on the outlet’s driver training area.

But the highlight will be the arrival of former Australian Rally Champion and Subaru Ambassador Cody Crocker who will be on hand for the event.

The gravel roads of Whangarei in New Zealand, and red mud in Malaysia, were perfect testing grounds for the speed, strength and durability of the Subaru WRX STI. Cody Crocker was behind the wheel.
