10 Golden Week Japan Wekfest PASMAG

Golden Week is a week in Japan that contains a cluster of holidays that adds up to a whole week off. Our contributor, Ken Au, planned his trip to Japan with the help of Simon Chan from Lost Royalty during this relaxing period, spending his time visiting the shows and meets that take place during this pause in pace of the big city rat race. Here is the solid gold he brought back for us.

01 Daikoku Parking Area Japan Golden Week PASMAG

DAIKOKU PARKING AREA: The Diakoku parking area is not easily accessible for many, as there is only one entrance into the lot. It is located North East of Yokohama, where the Metropolitan Expressway Bayshore route intersects with the Metropolitan Expressway K5 Daikoku Route, where every night, it is one of Japan’s hottest spots for automotive meets.

We happened to go on a weekday of Golden Week, so we didn’t expect to see many outrageous cars, as people tend to leave their busy city lives behind to explore the country side. On the contrary, thankfully, a large number still showed up and gave us a taste of Japan’s iconic meet up spot. We were not surprised when we arrived to see an interesting variety of cars, from VIP to street tuner.

Car Audio Championship 2016: INAC

The Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville, KY was the host location for the 2016 IASCA North American Championship (INAC). The 2 day event in mid-October had close to 70 SQ competitors and more than 100 IASCA SPL competitors from across the continent. “Once again, our team did a great job and we are extremely proud of them” said Moe Sabourin, Director of Operations for IASCA Worldwide “One of the toughest jobs in car audio competition is being a judge; most Judges know the competitors and have great friendships with them. When you’re judging, you have to turn off the friendship…

Scion FR-S RC Rally Cup

Scion recently teamed up with R/C company HPI to throw the first-ever FR-S Cup. Held at Toyota’s Torrance, California, corporate headquarters, this just-for-fun event featured a variety of FR-S-based R/C races, an FR-S R/C car show, and even appearances from Scion luminaries like Stephen Papadakis and Five Axis’ Troy Sumitomo. Prizes were awarded throughout the day – we didn’t win anything, but given that we didn’t completely embarrass ourselves during our competition heat, we came out feeling like winners anyway.…
