Roxburgh Park Sound Off Event

Roxburgh Park Auto One/Rare Spares played host to a very successful sound off/show ‘n’ shine on Friday 15th November.

Weather was fantastic ensuring a large turnout for the event, which was complete with a free sausage sizzle, promotional girls collecting donations for the local CFA, door prizes and exclusive store discounts. The BBQ was going all night and the in-store promotion offered a 20% discount store-wide and an extra-special 30% off audio products for the sound off.

“We had over 300 cars turn up on the day and raised $760 for the local CFA,” said Brad De Pasquale, Store Manager.

Awards were given to the best cars in the JDM, Muscle Car, Aussie Tuner and Audio categories.

“There were a number of high quality cars like the Toyota Supra which won the ‘Showstopper’ award. Other winners included an LJ Torana and a yellow Maloo Ute.”

Many Auto One suppliers were in attendance and available for guests to speak with including MotorActive, Penrite, National Auto Parts, SP Tools, Auto Concepts and more.

Rare Spares and Auto One are looking to make the sound off an annual event as it was a huge success and a great opportunity to bring car enthusiasts together to share this passion. Some incredible cars and sound systems were on display as you can see from the event footage - click here to view.

Rare Spares have presented the FB-EK Car Club of Victoria with a branded banner to thank them for their continued support.
