Formula D 2016 – Round 1 Streets of Long Beach

Words and Photos by Gilbert

Another year kicks off with the Formula D 2016 season at the Streets of Long Beach. Things were a bit different this year as due to rainy conditions, the qualifiers from the first day were cancelled and instead drivers were given practice time for the day instead. Following that into the second day competition, they went with a seeded order based on 2015 rankings to start the competitions.

Another thing that was different was the car show usually held by Illest and titled Offset Kings has been replaced by a Toyota sponsored auto gallery.

Spocom San Jose – 2015

It was one of those days where California had 2 shows going on a weekend and I had to choose between Auto enthusiast presented by Nitto in Anaheim, and Spocom Show in San Jose. I thought, since we’re having the Tjin Edition x DaYUUM RoadShow down in Anaheim, why not drive up north and have a little road trip to cover Spocom up in the bay. So Friday night, I rode with Mikey (@photo_md) along with some of the R-Rydes crew, Danh (@dvo414), and Alf (@bluewaffleg35) to cruise up north but had to re-route and take freeway 101 since we got an update from Tricia that there was a brush fire going on at Highway 152, the usual way to San Jose from SoCal. We got there around early a.m. safe and sound and met up with the rest of the R-Rydes crew to roll in at the show. It was a pretty chill show, nothing big compare to the Spocom Anaheim that happened a few weeks ago. It’s more of a good vibes, and seeing some of the NorCal friends that I’ve never seen for a while. It was definitely a good time chillin and chatting up with the bay area peeps. With that being said, here’s a few of the cool rides and beautiful women of Spocom San Jose.

Jovi’s Lancer Evo, one of the few cars that gets to show inside Club Auto sports showroom.
