If you're literally itching to get your hands on a brand-new Subaru Impreza, then you're in luck as Motor Image Pilipinas, the exclusive distributor of Subaru vehicles in the country, is now accepting entries among those who'd like to join the "2011 Subaru Impreza Challenge - Manila Leg".
Interested participants may now get the application form for the endurance event at the Subaru showroom on EDSA near Greenhills. But if you're too busy, you can simply "like" the Impreza Challenge – Manila Facebook page, print out the eight-page application form in the photos section, fill it out and then drop off the form at the Subaru showroom.

In the end, the last 10 men and women standing during the event will be sent to Singapore to compete with finalists from other Southeast Asian countries for the chance to bring home a brand-new Subaru Impreza WRX.

At last year's Subaru Impreza Challenge Asian Face-Off in Singapore, however, Roberto Tomas became the lone Filipino standing before he dropped out of the competition after 64 hours.
