Awesome Asian Models at HIN Fontana

 
Fontana, CA (Photos by Clinton Lum and Gary Phung, Text by Staff) - Hot Import Nights are always famed for their model lounge and the number of Asian models at the show.  After all, it's an import car show. Here we have a brief intro to some of the cool girls at the HIN model lounge.  Erica Law is ever so refreshing and so amicable!  Jenny Lam came all the way from San Diego to attend the show and showed us a great smile!
There were many more great Asian models and these are just a few highlights.  Enjoy!
(note: the staff person did not go to the show, so he did not capture all the models' names.  Hopefully next time it will be a much better ID system here...)

(Update: added an additional photo attribution to Gary Phung, distinguished by watermarks)
Fontana, CA (Photos by Clinton Lum, Gary Phung, Text by Staff) - Our sage contributor Clinton Lum, has brought us back his glorious coverage photos of the models and cars and actions at the 2013 HIN / Hot Import Nights, Fontana event. Judging from the models at the show, it's sure a wonderful, glamorous, and fun event!
This HIN / Hot Import Nights event carried its tradition of great presence of gorgeous models and cool cars, and this time added drifting actions as well! What a perfect combination for our magazine!! Totally rocks!
Fontana parking lot may not be the ideal location for a carshow event, with a disproportionally large race track right next to it and several huge parking lots surrounding the event. However, HIN still brought the great models and cars to the show and made it a lively and fun event! Very cool! 

Here in the model lounge we have Sandra Wong, Erica Law, Jennifer Irene Gonzalez, Trinity Dang, and the model/driver Melyssa Grace at the top, as well as other models in the model lounge, including Jenny Lam, Lux and Kim, and Lisa Recupero, Jenna Lane, Lilly Evans, Janis True and Dawn Jaro.

Of course, on the vendor side, we have amazing Sandra Wong, R1-Concepts dual, Amber Alvarez, and Brittani Paige, as well as the 2Crave Team!

We will go into more details in the coming days to show the super glam and fun side of the 2013 HIN Fontana!! Stay tuned!

Irwindale, CA (Photos by Clinton Lum, Text by Staff) - Formula Drift Round 7 Title Fight event at Irwindale is always a big deal in the promotional professional world.  It's a major presence, especially with their sold-out crowd and major media presence at the location.  Therefore, many of the vendors at the event brought out their best of the best to get their brand names out there.

Our sage contributor Clinton Lum (see his byline at the end of the article) has provided us a glimpse of all the great models at the FD event, working hard both by-the-track and off-track, covering both smoking drifting actions and smoking hot models.

Sandra Wong for Nitto Tire at 2013 Formula Drift Irwindale @MsSandraWong #fdirw

  
Irwindale, CA (W&HM) - Sandra Wong is by far one of the most popular models in the car promotional professional scene.  She epitomizes a gentle and fashion-glamor style of beauty. Every picture you see of her, has a wholesome, poetic, and yet sometimes playful tone about it.  Her subtlety and natural talents make her stand out in a loud and sometimes exhausting promotional scene, like a calming lily in a wavy pond.  And on top of that, she is such a congenial and friendly person.  Whenever you stop by and if she recognizes you, you are guaranteed to have a very pleasant conversation with her, which makes your whole trip feel a lot more fulfilling and simply happier!  It's always a great pleasure to see Sandra!  And we look forward to seeing her more in the future!

Big Preview of Sold Out #FormulaDrift Title Fight Round 7 (Models)

 
 
Irwindale, CA (Py) - Formula Drift is the absolute top tier drifting event in the States.  Over the 10 years long history, they have amassed great talents around the world for the drifting competitions.  After a 6-months-long touring around the country, it's coming back to Irwindale Speedway for the final Title Fight!  This is the one that determines who is the top of the top of  this year's drifting professionals.  

The event has been a sold out event long time ago.  And the organizer has been working hard to increase the capacity anyway they can to accommodate more die-hards and fans.  It will be an epic event on Saturday for sure!

At the same time, the expo area will be packed with tons of vendors, products, merchandise, freebies, and of course, models. From our past experience, we can say that they have one of the highest density of the models in the event compared to other comparable size shows, and not even with any model lounge or beauty contest or Miss Formula Drift competition in the venue.  That's spectacular and also says a lot of the importance of the event and the attentions from the fans.
 
Friday is the qualifying rounds, and Saturday is the final decision day.  Therefore, on Friday, vendors usually hold back on their models' appearances.  Mostly only the big ones, especially with their sponsored competing drivers with their endorsements on their cars, get to have their models show up.  And many of them are top of the class in the promotional industry.  

This is a summary of the Friday's model line up and like a preview of what come in the scene on the final day.  Judging from the caliber of the models, Saturday event is going to be huge and  awesome  one!  We definitely look forward to it!

Sparkling Diamond Zaang Looks Great in Bikini @DiamondZaang

As the natural season changes, so is the car show season too.  There are a few more coming up this year, but nothing like the crazy 3 - 5 carshows over one day kind of scene anymore.  We think it's great and gives us more time to truly enjoy the beauties and beauties.

Kelly Gebh for GXS Racing Matches The 109F Heat at #RedlineTimeAttack

  
Fontana, CA (W&HM) - Kelly Gebh is a super dedicated model for GXS Racing. At the Redline Time Attack Fontana, CA event, Kelly woke up really early early because of the distance she needs to drive. Then at the location, it's like 109F temperature, and she is wearing a tight and less breathable material top and bottom. It's fine if it is a Fall weather, but Fontana's oven weather is not ideal for this at all. And she needs to stay there pretty much all by herself for 6+ hours, since there were no other models there! Wow, our hats' off to her and her perseverance!! 

Still it's all worth it, because we got some really cool pictures of Kelly! Now take a look at these cool photos of a hot model in a overheating location!

Awesome Music Video Coverage and Features from W&HM!!! Must Watch!!

Uplifting Roenna Designs Runway Show Shines at Pacific BMW Car Meet Glendale CA

 
Glendale, CA (Py) - One thing we didn't expect from any car meet in Southern Claifornia, besides the three of our awesome cover models being there, or the surprise Octoberfest girls-and-kegs' presence, is a high fashion runway show, with real fashion models and wonderfully talented designer's works!  Their beautiful runway show has elevated the whole event to a new high level!

At the Pacific BMW Car Meet event, the design team at Roenna Designs, whose creations draw from classic Hollywood icons as well as timeless pieces across the various period styles, put together an elegant and lyrical fashion show.  The runway show is a great success by the responding enthusiasms of the audience and media folks.  Also the runway models at the event are not what you usually see at a car show.  Many of them are close to 6' tall and have that strong fashion look.  We spotted great models like Kaylen M (above left) and Elizabeth Michelle (above right), as well as Shannon C, who all are from MyeliteModels Management.  Their catwalk were simply awesome!  As we said earlier, the runway show is a total success!

This not only demonstrated the power of network + teamwork to put together a great car event, it also says a lot of the organizer of the event who went outside the box and created something different, and a very cool difference that they have made.  Many kudos!!  We definitely look forward to the next time!
