Robert Champion – The Man Behind the Events


First attended WBM at age 20.

Who: Founder of, Director of SubieEvents, LLC

What: Took over the planning and coordinating the events in 2009.

Why: “The reason we all do it is because we have an interest in and a passion for the car, lifestyle, and brand. I don’t think this is something any of us will ever get tired of.”


Cars: 11th Subaru

“One of my favorite things about the events in general is how we work with our sponsors to give away products to attendees as part of their admission, rather than the traditional paid raffle. Attendees end up shopping at all the sponsor booths to figure out what they want to win.”
