EVOLUTION is coming to San Francisco’s Pier 70 on Saturday, June 13th. Don’t miss the most anticipated and talked about event of the year. Anchoring the largest car show on the west coast will be dozens of vendors, MSTRSTAG Model Lounge, Evrystyle 1-on-1 dance battle, STP LA Graffiti Art Expo and DTF RC drift track and stage entertainment.
Formula Drift Long Beach is where you get to witness all of the hard work and training the drivers and teams have been doing all year long in preparation for the new season. New liveries, new cars, new builds, new everything and it’s very exciting. Aside from all the new happenings going on Long Beach is a fantastic location and track. The track is very tight and very fast, cars are pushing harder and harder on each run getting closer and closer to each and every wall. The fans are right there in the action, with great proximity seating you will practically be covered in rubber by the end of the day. There is always so much to do, even when cars aren’t skidding across the track. One could check out one of the many vendors occupying the paddocks, or even walk to the other side of the track and see all the cars in the Offset Kings Car Show. Fans can also see almost every car in the competition up close and personal. Most teams just park their cars right by their trailers and fans can walk right up to them, check them out, and meet the drivers most of the time. FD Long Beach is one hell of an event to kick off the Formula Drift season.
Since Canibeat started in 2009, there are always certain shows we make a top priority to cover each year. Water by the Bridge has been on that list for the last few years for us but has been a must-attend show for those in or around the Midwest and southern parts of the country for much longer. It’s so much more than a show, however; it’s a goal and a deadline for people to have their winter projects finished. Winter can be brutal but Water By The Bridge is always a beacon of hope that show season is upon us.
Water by the Bridge, hosted by Grossman Tuning, is held in downtown Louisville at Waterfront Park and is the official opener for the season in this part of the country. We hope you enjoy our coverage this year and stay tuned for more from around the country for 2015!

If you are a Euro car enthusiast, the coverage you’re about to scroll through is something you more than likely look forward to every year (I know I do). If you are not a Euro enthusiast, whether by choice or if you haven’t been exposed yet, you’re about to be.
To add to our official EuroTripper 3 event coverage, we bring you Cole Young’s EuroTripper 3 video. EuroTripper is located at Jet Blue Park in Ft.Myers, Florida. This european auto show features a diverse crowd of modified cars, and great group of people. The show’s focus is on benefiting a local animal shelter, Brooke’s Legacy. If you missed out this year, it’s certainly worth putting on the calendar for next year! Enjoy the video.

For most of us in the U.S., February is a time of shoveling snow and doing our best to stay warm. Our cars are usually in winter mode or hibernating until spring, either undergoing changes or collecting dust while the snow slowly melts. Paul Barney on the other hand is a busy man in February. For the third year in a row, he has organized Euro Tripper, a European auto show in Ft.Myers, Florida. Though this year brought big changes for Euro Tripper the main focus is still on benefiting Brooke’s Legacy, a local animal rescue.

Last month, on the other side of our precious globe, the annual Tokyo Auto Salon hit the Makuhari Messe in Chiba City’s Mihama-ku ward. As can be expected from one of the top auto shows for modified and tuned vehicles, based in the tuner capital of the world that hosts roots back to the latter part of the ’80s, advocates of each and every sector of Japan’s automotive culture were present in full suit. The show as a whole has continued to gain momentum in regards to popularity as the years continue to commence, making the Tokyo Auto Salon the place to be in January when feasible. Luckily for us, we had eyes not only on the show, but at Super Street’s Fresh Tokyo Meet that give perspective of what goes within the shadows, outside of the spotlights.
Welcome back to Destination Daytona and the sixth installment of Simply Clean. The Florida grown show celebrated its third run at Daytona’s ultimate spot and kicked off the weekend festivities with their Friday night pre-meet at CCW (Complete Custom Wheel). The local wheel company kindly opened its facilities up once again showing off their latest wheels, giving factory tours, and setting the mood for the main event the next day.
In 2011 Weakest made the decision to launch the Wekfest USA tour. 2014 marked the first time the tour made its way to the sunshine state, Miami specifically. Usually Canibeat vends at both the California and New Jersey shows, but because Miami’s event was so close to the holidays I decided to just personally go down there to check it out. I made the trip to Orlando where I met up with JDM KAM, Nick from Simplyclean, and a few friends and we made the four hour drive from there. The one thing I have noticed about Weakest is no matter where they go, whether it’s a small scene or a big scene, quality cars always come out.
I was in Orlando for Simply Clean exactly a month prior and it was good to be back. A little sunshine and being away from the cold up North is always a blessing. We hope you enjoy our coverage and if you couldn’t make it out this year hopefully our coverages makes you want to in 2015!
Anthony Mainecoon of Halcyon Photo & Cinema made it out again this year for First Class Fitment and like always his work never disappoints. Even though he couldn’t make it to the show until later in the afternoon he still killed it! We hope you guys enjoy.
