Great Highlight of Day One of Formula Drift 2016 Long Beach Season Opener!

www.wheelsandheelsmag.com / Long Beach, CA / Py Pai

The highly anticipated Formula Drift 2016 season is finally here!  On everybody's mind is the weather condition.  In the past, Formula Drift Long Beach, season opener, has been blessed with plenty of sunshine.  In fact, sometimes it was too much so...

This year, the El Nino has expressed his temperament and his tears sure have given us much awaited rain and snow, but also the unexpected drizzles in this year's Formula Drift event.

Looking up, it's overcast grey sky, and then looking down, it's puddles of water, and in the middle, it could be flying drip-lets, sometimes even going horizontal, as Long Beach is a harbor right next to the Pacific Ocean.

We thought, this is just the first day.  What about the second day, the main event day?  Will it be raining cats and dogs or it will actually give us a pass and send us just some gentle breezes?  We will find out soon!
On the other hand, the wet and slick road condition did pose a huge challenge to all the drivers at the first day qualifying event.  There have been reported many crashes and bangs, that made the official to decide to call it quit and stopped the qualifying competitions.

Surveying the race cars in the pits, you can easily see many casualties from the poor road conditions.  These are top drivers in the circuit.  Still the highly competitiveness and uncooperative driving condition proved to be a bad marriage.

On the other hand, the promotional models still showed up in their full gears, not afraid of the dropping temperature, nor the humid air around them.  the ultra glamorous uniforms from the major tire companies as well as various vendors / companies, still demonstrate the great days of Formula Drift event.

 Through our quick run on the venue, we found great models left and right, even at this first day of the event.  Even better thing is many of our cover models were at the event, looking super awesome to say the least!

From the top, we have Nicole Marie Reckers and Arley Elizabeth for Achilles Tires up front.  It's always so great to see them.  They are the model BFFs in the modeling industry we can say!

Then right here we have our super talented and upcoming (very soon) cover model Jessica Harbour for Nexen Tires, together with the long time beauty Erica Nagashima, as well as the new face, Kay Vee.  the new Nexen uniform has a great color balance and great cut that can rival other famous uniforms!

And of course, our cover model Jessica Weaver showed up in her beautiful self.  It's so great to see her again, as it's been a long time since the last time we saw her.  Then L'Amour Niggl and her kid sister Amanda showed up wonderfully for McLeod.  It's always great to have a wonderful sister who can show the ropes in this new territory for her sister.
  
Then the stunning and forever iconic Hankook Girls were simply wow, in many different ways too!  Sarah Top, Lindsy Harrod, and Karol Priscilla all stood brave against the tough temperature, and still signing their autographed posters away despite the cold and humidity.
  
Many people have commented the Spearmint Rhino girls' awesome uniform. We could say that they were the most prepared group of models at the show.  The black leather like jacket and skinny pants simply accentuated their prowess and presence.  Anya Benton, Milla Silva and Lillie Suzanne and friend were totally stunning and impressed many show attendees, staffs on carts, or fellow models!

We will bring back huge report from the main event day of the Formula Dift 2016 season opener!  Definitely stay tuned and check it out tomorrow!

Rachel Loraine has appeared in several Big Abe's Kuya Kreationz model lounge across multiple events.  Despite the cold or the heat, Rachel is always a champion in holding the tent up and keeping the crowd excited about the model lounge and event.

We also spotted Lilly Evans as guest starring at the event right by the lounge.  As you can see she is busy just by being Lilly Evans.

And of course, without the big star behind all these great showings, Big Abe, the import model scene would not be the same.  Through out the years, from our observation and opinions, Big Abe's contribution to the import modeling industry is a huge statement of the thriving industry!  Bravo! Bravo!

Miss Krisana looks so familiar to us.  We were pretty sure that we met her before or somewhere.  Then after a search in our web site, we are so proud to find that Miss Krisana has appeared in our coverage multiple times!  One of them is from our contributing photographer Eduard Suarez who brought her to our coverage of Tuner Evolution in Philadelphia, three years ago too:

See Miss Krisana at XDC Remix Irwindale 2011
See Miss Krisana at Tuner Evolution in Philadelphia 2013
See Miss Krisana at Formula Drift New Jersey 2013

We can say we go way back!!

Here at the 2016 Tuner Evolution / Ace Alloy Wheels car show, Miss Krisana has shown up at the event with a sporty look by the famous Archie's red Audi car with Ace Alloy wheels.  Miss Krisana has indicated that she has moved to so-Cal.  It's such a great news because that means we will see this awesome lady many times through out the years!

Last time we introduced the amazing Thamilla Silva in our individual coverage.

Here is Thamilla and her fellow Spearmint Rhino partner-in-show giving us a grand picture opportunity, thanks to JDM Sport team!

They definitely brought the Tuner Evolution's Spring Gathering car show's temperature several notches up.  We were not sure if people there were ready for them, but we were sure that many people would be thrilled to these models posing with their cars and looking amazing!

Emkay Vee is no stranger to us.  In the first coverage of her back in 2013 Tuner Evolution Philadelphia, covered by our contributing photographer Eduardo Suarez, she burst into our view with full import model gravitas!

Right on the spot, we were impressed with her awesome modeling persona!  Now at the 2016 Tuner Evolution again, Spring Gathering, we met her again (and again actually) and we were happy that we captured some sweet moments of her with event in motion.

Now Emkay Vee has moved to southern California, so we would expect to see her a lot more in future car shows and events!  Super cool!!

JDM Sport presence is synonymous to big model presence.  Jasmyn Skye's efficient and effective recruiting skills have made this cool company a stable sponsor to many car shows.  Their presence at a car show is in all the time.

This time, there were a lot of models at the show for sure!  In fact there were so many that we had to break them into two postings.

Here we have the JDM Sport girls, including Darlene May, Bella, Lydia Moe!  There will be more to come as well!  Definitely stay tuned!
