Fitted 2014 (Ontario, Canada): Official Coverage

Fitted2014_COVER

With the Fitted 2014 crew acquiring more than double the floor space over last year’s venue they somehow managed to up the actual quality of the venue and cars over the previous iteration as well.  While still being one of the smaller events on the calendar they make up for it with a level of diversity and car quality that easily contends with large events.  Euros and imports living comfortably side-by-side with stanced and race inspired builds.  See… we can all get along.

WEKFEST LA 2014 (Long Beach, CA): Official Video

A warm 80 degrees and an offshore breeze is a great combination for a car show. Wekfest LA kicks off the year with yet again another awesome show at the Queen Mary in Long Beach, California, with Canibeat posted up right in the middle of all the madness. This year the theme was RED. Red ruckus, Red DC2 (Integra) and a Red FRS 86. With the Long Beach skyline in the background you couldn’t have asked for a better backdrop. This year we tried to enjoy the show a little more so we talked and met with a lot more people. Surprisingly this year Wekfest LA gave us all a little bit more room to breathe. Giving us quality over quantity, you were able to walk around more and set up your shot for the perfect Instagram post.

Georgia on my Mind: Southern Wörthersee 2014 Official Coverage (Part 2)

SOWO_2014_Part2_COVER

SOWO, only a one year until you return and I can once again visit the sleepy town of Helen, GA. This is the sixth year I have had the chance to attend the event and without a doubt I can easily say this is my favorite show hands down. There are a lot of great shows out there but nothing like SOWO. The atmosphere, the town, and even the people that come together all make this event truly special. Each year dozens of people including two men, Matt Bounds and Chris Cooley, dedicate hundreds of hours into making this event happen but each year it becomes a little more challenging. We need to remember despite the fun we have to keep it respectful and not ruin this happy little town by going too over the top.

SOWO offers a lot for the car enthusiast in us all. From mini-meets all over town to photo shoots, mountain drives, and of course the main show, there is something for everyone to enjoy. For me, though, the chance to escape the work flow, experience a German themed town full of German cars, and get a hold of some German beer is all I really need. Starting the Thursday prior to show day you can cruise the strip and enjoy seeing all the awesome cars roll up and down and have a chance to meet up with friends from all over the country. Personally it was great to meet up with the rest of the Canibeat staff and also to have Mr. Andy Carter take some great shots. Enjoy  part two of our SOWO coverage! Get ready #SOWOPREP2015 starts now!

All Roads Lead to Helen: Southern Wörthersee 2014 Official Coverage (Part 1)

SOWO2014_COVER

Every year thousands of cars invade a quaint Bavarian themed town with the beautiful mountain backdrop of Western Georgia. The chaos that follows the first wave of arrivals is a blur of scraping subframes, smokey burnouts, cases upon cases of beer and of course those all too familiar flashing red and blue lights. The field of cars attending Southern Wörthersee features a wide range of chassis’ and styles from air-cooled all the way up to the most recent to-be-released models. It’s a mixture of flawless paint, eye-popping wraps, unique dips and timeless patina that seem pair perfectly with the modifications that adorn these builds.

Springfest 5 (Virginia Beach, VA): Official Coverage

Springfest5_COVER

To wrap up the month of April and kick off the new season on the East Coast Team Summospeed presented the fifth annual Springfest, hosted at a brand new location that really set the tone compared to previous years. This year Springfest laid claim to the Virginia Beach Convention center, which allowed the event to be broken up into an inside and outside portion. The weather that hit Virginia and the surrounding states the night before the show left minor concerns on how it would affect the attendance of participants. Thankfully everyone woke up to a cloudless sky on show day and Springfest 5 ended up being more than proper, providing a DJ, food, an on-site mobile dyno, vendors, and a diverse showcase of cars.

Needless to say Springfest was a great time prior to this year, but now with the new location the event has definitely become the show to attend if you want to start the season off the right way.
