Rewind: Formula Drift Round 4 “The Gauntlet”


Better late than never, right? We worked hard to bring you guys coverage of the practice day for Round 4 of Formula Drift that same night, unfortunately a couple of us got sick after that first day, one of us moved after the event, and all of us have full time jobs.   I don’t want to make excuses, but I figured with yesterday’s practice day getting rained out  for Round 5  in Monroe, WA some of you might enjoy our coverage of qualifying and the main event at The Gauntlet!

Import Alliance 2011 Summer Meet (Nashville Super Speedway)


Since 2006 car enthusiasts from all over have traveled to Nashville, Tennessee for what has now become the largest all import meet in the entire country. It seems like just yesterday that I attended my first Import Alliance in 2007 and I was instantly hooked! Nothing beats being around people who share the same passion as you do and tons of quality cars all around you for an entire weekend. I noticed a lot more variety in cars this year and it made for a more amazing experience. We will let the pictures do the talking. A big thank you goes out Don, Omari & the entire Import Alliance staff for letting us be a part of this amazing event they have created. Thanks for the good memories and we will defiantly be back next year! Enjoy everyone.

Random Beat: Grey Hounding To Import Alliance


I recently headed out to the east coast for Import Alliance summer meet 2011. It was my first IA and I had a great time and the people were great. It was really chill and fun and I got to caravan with many amazing cars such as this beautiful right hand drive S15. Being a west coast guy, the quality of cars out there really surprised me. Thank you everyone for treating me so well out there! I will return soon. Stay tuned for plenty of IA coverage since I was one of the many Canibeat photographers that attended.

A Look Back: Blox Open House 2011 (Part 1)


Photography & Words by John Zhang for

Here’s the long awaited Canibeat coverage of the second annual Blox Open House event that we actually did attend. We’ve just been too busy to edit and post photos. A lot of things are going on in the back end that will be worth the wait. We guarantee it. Anyway, the turn out at this event was very good for a norcal meet since the area is a bit more congested and compact than say socal. It was my first Blox event so I didn’t know what to expect. I would say that it’s pretty similar to an Eibach meet quality-wise. However, you can be the judge of that, so check out the photos in the rest of the post.

A Look Back: Wekfest Los Angeles (Part 1)

Photography & Words by John Zhang for

Everyone would agree that it’s always better late than never right? Yes, that’s right, we did attend Wekfest Los Angeles in Long Beach, however, due to time constraints and scheduling, all the photographers that attended were not able to get their coverage out until now. This will be part one of what’s to come in the near future. Anyway, just like Wekfest San Francisco this year, the turn out was huge and the quality of cars was amazing. So enough with the text, we’ll let the photos do the talking.

Random Pic(k): Jeffery Chin Photography

Photography by Jeffery Chin

Canibeat started with just a few friends who shared a passion for cars and quality photography. Just like many of you, we spent our free time surfing forums and checking out our favorite photographers on Flickr. Although we have grown away from our days of posting random finds and moved more towards exclusive features from our great team of exclusive Canibeat photographers, we will always have a place to showcase photos and videos from other up and coming photographers and videographers! With that said it has been a while since I have posted one of my “Random Pic(k)’s” so in the middle of working on some new features I wanted to showcase some work from Jeffrey Chin, a talented young photographer from Alberta, Canada.

As much as I love road trips, red eye flights, and traveling to shows across the country with friends, there are a handful of local events here in my home state of New Jersey that I look forward to every year.  One of my favorite weekends of the year is Round 4 of Formula D at Wall Stadium.  In years past we were only able to attend the main event on Saturday, this year we wanted to bring you coverage of not only qualifying but today’s practice session also!

HRE Wheels Open House 2011

Photography & Words by John Zhang for

I was generously invited a few weeks ago to the HRE Wheels Open House event. Shooting higher end cars is a rare occurrence for me so I took it as a great opportunity to shoot some nicely modified cars. The turn out was great and the quality of cars was even better. The front, side, and back lots of HRE headquarters were filled with amazing automobile machinery including the inside of the warehouse. Talk about a turnout, I was just amazed throughout the day!
