As the Formula D seasons comes to another close and a new champion is crowned, the venue returns to Irwindale Speedway. This time, we didn’t have a booth so I just headed to the venue just as it was opening to the public. For future reference, show up early because parking was ridiculous at that time and I almost couldn’t find a spot. On to the show side, I didn’t have track access again so I couldn’t get any of the awesome drifting action so there’s only model coverage from the Vendor spaces that occupy the car show side.

I had heard about the R1 Concepts event from a couple fellow photographers in the scene and I was kinda hesitant on attending the event, mostly because it was last minute on my schedule and I had other events that day, but I’m kinda glad i did go. Got to hang out with Big Abe for a bit of adventuring, good company.
Abe was rocking his latest bling, the R1 Concepts brake rotor + caliper
Once again, that thing is legit. The weight is just massive.
Even Amber was having a bit of difficulty lifting it, probably because it was still chained to Abe…
Eventually, I saw the “Big Abe” special at Klouds Vapor that happened to have a booth there that day. Definitely something to check out.
As per the usual, I try to include some model coverage at these events so check out the hotties in no particular order.
