SEMA 2016 PAS Elite Tuner DSC 1731

The largest automotive trade show through the eyes of a noob and a veteran, respectively.

Adam Gordon (AG): As a first-timer at SEMA, the Las Vegas Convention Center is truly a sensory overload. It can be overwhelming at times when you don't know what to look at, or which hall to explore next. With luck, I was able to see the entire show, only finishing my tour of duty in the final hours of the last day. Picking favorites from the plethora of builds was a task in itself.

Micky Slinger (MS): This was my third SEMA. Since 2013, I’ve been trekking out the desert, setting up basecamp at one of the hotels near the Las Vegas Convention Center (RIP Riviera, forever in our hearts), and running through its halls like a madman, camera in hand. Everyone else with a media outlet is doing the same, so you fit right in. I have to say, the builds this year were outstanding, and the vast majority were actually functional cars, which was a nice change of pace from last year’s “stance-offs.” The one thing that did remain the same was the seemingly never-ending sea of people that you will have to elbow out of the way to get to, or shoot anything.

DMCC Round 4 2013: Victoriaville, QC

One of the most exciting stops on the DMCC schedule is the Victoriaville round. It is the event where DMCC takes an empty snow dump in the middle of Victoriaville and turns it into one of the best drift circuits in the series. With the event being so popular, this year a lot more grandstands were added to accommodate a lot more fans as last year the event was filled to capacity. Saturday was an interesting day. Off the bat, it was impressive to see Jeff Laflamme arrive at the track considering he partially destroyed the back end of his…

RPM Events: Irvine

RPM Events has followed through on their promises of top level events for 2010. As the originators of HIN, these guys know how to throw a party and this was a great spot. The venue was the old fairgrounds in Irvine, CA, which has all of the features of an amusement park. Some came for the rides, some came for the show cars but I came for Melissa Riso (uh, that sounds wrong). The RPM spokesmodel was at the show signing autographs and taking pictures along with all kinds of her hot friends...check out the snaps! FREE Trial Issue Want…
