With an open invitation from Yokohama Tires, Tomei Powered decided to take a trip down to the Yokota Auto Hobby Car Show in the US Air Force base in Japan.
This event was open only for the military and those associated within, however, over 1000 attendees were counted at the venue. The event followed a certain theme labeled “Tuned with Tunes”, and it consisted of many modified cars and bikes, motorcycle riding demonstration, and various contests within the military personnel. The tuned cars mixed uniformly with the live band as well as the music coming from the car audio corner.
It is known that it is very difficult to produce some profit from these types of venues, nevertheless it served as a fine podium to present to the industry the different types of companies available which are attempting globalization of their image. The Japanese style of automobile modification is highly respected and recognized as well, and this event will surely transcend this unique trend elsewhere in the world.
August 25th and 26th, the US Air Force is expected to host a 2 day event, with an expected crowd attendance of 13,000 people. Tomei Powered is still unsure whether to attend.
This event is a win/win situation, it will be enjoyable to have a booth there or just attend as a spectator.
*We would sincerely like to send our gratitude to Yokohama Tire for the invitation, and all the staff members who attended.
