Unofficial Coverage Report of the 86FEST II (86Fest2)   

Auto Club Speedway, Fontana, California
August 10-11th, 2013.

The weekend was August 10th and 11th of August in 2013.  The weekend that falls on the numeric date of 8/6.
We gathered and celebrated the first anniversary of the new 86 in America, the Scion FR-S, and the Subaru BRZ, along with the original AE86 that inspired three decades of pure sports driving enthusiasm, and resulting in the reincarnation product as the FT86, the new 86.  The pilot event to get the event in motion was the 86 Dynamic Driving Academy, presented by WinMax Performance Brakes, and RS*R Suspension Systems.  Hosted and operated by the original Club4AG crew that operated the D1GP USA, Showoff Series, and the local Drift Day in the past, the new generation of FR-S and BRZ pilots came out in force to learn about the true handling character of the new 86.  Out on the specially designed exercise zones, and autocross, and instructed by the best in the industry, Taka Aono and Hiro Sumida taking on a chief instructor role, the learning experience was all about fun, dedication, and learning to dance with cars.   From principles of dynamic vehicle control to basic elements of performance driving, it is always a pleasure to have people learn about handling of any particular car.  A full day of roasting tires and burning fuel, the day was just full of sun-burned smiles for all the boys and girls who came out to play.

As for the main event, the 86FEST on Sunday, this is the second year, and first fully planned event for the 86FEST.

Presented by TURN14 Distributing, and myriads of sponsors and organizations that number nearly one hundred entities, all pitched in something to make the day like nothing other.

With 254 FR-S and BRZ, and 32 AE86's that gathered along with 4500 people that were present, it sure did become a party!

Product Showcase, Full speed autocross course, Showcase car ride-alongs, huge list of sweet raffle prizes and show car trophies, all were a part of what goes on at the living, breathing, festival for sports driving enthusiasts car that bears the 86 nickname.  Product manufacturers from large establishment, to the smallest of garage fabricators, all came out to present what they had for the 86 platform, new and old.  One very notable surprise was the partaking of Jackson Racing.  A legend of 30+years in state of the art tuning for Honda cars, Jackson Racing shifted part of the R&D/product line to the new Toyota 86 and came out to join the fun!
Cars other than 86 that rolled in ranged from the $410,000 Lexus LFA to the $210 HPI 1/10 scale AE86's...
Speed & Stance added to the show in the adjacent lot to invite other classics and modern automobile enthusiasts alike, to introduce the 86 family of cars and the culture.

Out in the north lot, the previous day's autocross continued to run more 86's all day long, dodging cones, and drivers getting faster and faster, learning the art of driving.
And perimeter of the event was the Auto Club Speedways famous "Roval Course' a 3 mile infield raceway, which also had many sports cars doing their own time attack, filling the air with exhaust noises and fuel-burning-smell of excitement.

I'll let the photos do the rest of the presentations!!
