We were worried about the event because as you can see the wet pavement, it was raining on the way there up until the moment we arrived.
But the rain didn’t keep the thousands of people away from this meet. The lot was packed!
Upon arriving, we immediately saw Bisimoto’s amazing CRZ.
Soccer moms? Quite the opposite. These little rugrats are the next generation of enthusiasts!
Taking it back old school. A true OG CRX.
I think Dave@SpoCom was reminiscing about the past. Perhaps he had one?
Yes, it’s a RHD CRX. JDM enough for ya?
From old school, to new school.
We were there for a bit, and the crowds kept on coming. Overall, a great meet!
We’re excited to announce the APEXi pop-up store that will be at SPOCOM Anaheim this year. APEXi will be selling limited edition merchandise from rare Japanese parts normally not sold in the states to collectibles from their rich motorsport history. Make sure to stop by the pop-up store and pick up some history from APEXi.
About Pop-Up Stores
Pop-up stores are a great way to build hype for a brand. By offering parts and collectibles such as spare parts from your race cars or other collectibles not normally available by the public, you can help enthusiasts engage in your brand. If you’re a manufacturer or vendor looking to setup a pop-up store at one of our events, it’s still not to late. Stop by the contact page to reach out to us.
Late last week, we stopped by FD’s office to say hello to some old friends and discuss the upcoming SPOCOM show in Anaheim. FD’s events this year have been popping! The season opener at Long Beach Grand Prix was packed with spectators.

Steve taking some time to smile for the camera. At this point I think our blog happy ways we’re getting on everyone’s nerves…

Some of the top drivers in the 2011 Formula DRIFT season will also be there signing autographs.
We still have other surprises in the works so stay tuned to spocomusa.com for further details.
As the 2011 event season is getting underway, it’s exciting to watch and hear what everyone is up to during the scramble to book new and intriguing activations. The creative process of developing the event is truly an art form in itself. To see a group of individuals from various backgrounds come together in a “hive-mind” and architect events is such a interesting process to watch.
That’s why this year, the SPOCOM team will be running the Blog Mobile+ from our smartphones. We want to show you the process of creating SPOCOM to give you a deeper understanding of what the event is to us. So we’ll snapping pics and blogging from meetings with industry veterans, showing you behind the scene photos of vehicles being prepped for the show and whatever else gets our attention.
So stay tuned to Blog Mobile +. It’s going to be exciting ride.
