Erica Law for BlackVue and Many Other Cool Models at FDLB 2016 @ericalaw22 / W&HM Staff

We haven't seen Erica Law for a while and it's great to see her again at the Formula Drift Long Beach 2016 in the hosting vendor booth, Blackvue!

Erica is always so sweet and warm to our camera.  The many times that we shot her at various events, she gave flawless performances to let us bring awesome pictures back to share with all.

This time at the Formula Drift event, it was rainy and wet and cold.  Still Erica braved the severe condition and put up a great smile with her ultra low cut dress, looking every bit of classy and sexy!

Now that the car show is kicked wide open, we would expect to see her a lot more in the future.  Erica Law fans, definitely stay tuned for more!!

We also met up several other cool promotional models at the event and they all were super sweet and nice and friendly.  That's the beauty of car show events!!

Double Cover Models, Arley Elizabeth and Nicole Marie Reckers for Achilles at Formula Drift 2016 Long Beach @arrrrlz / W&HM Staff

Arley Elizabeth and Nicole Marie Reckers, our two cover models, were the two awesome dynamic duo models in Formula Drift 2016 Long Beach at the Achilles Tire pit area for two freezing and rainy days.

Something Nicole did really impressed us in a subtle way.  And any want-to-be-a-professional-model models should take notes from our observation here...

Nicole Marie Reckers, always a true dedicated top model at any car shows, withstood the cold and wet weather from Friday on.  On the second day, she had a running nose and definitely under the weather we can tell.

However, you could not tell that from all the photos that we took of her... We mean, we took pictures of her and Arley in multiple times.  Nicole never complained, nor showed any signs of fatigue or even unpleasantness.  She's all smily and sunny, even though she was probably suffering inside...

In the same circumstances, we are pretty sure that 30% of models would just bail, and said they are sick.  Another 30% would probably stayed inside and bundled up with jackets and blankets.  Then the rest may just come out but with a tired face or simply not to the task.

Nicole has none of those.  She's just as bright and happy as we have always seen her!  Nicole Marie Reckers is a total trooper!  And we can definitely say the same to Arley Elizabeth as well, as we have witnessed her professionalism in many + numerous + many many occasions!

Gorgeous Nexen Tire Models Jess Harbour, Erica Nagashima, and Kay Vee at Formula Drift 2016 Long Beach @JessHarbour @EricaNagashima / Long Beach, CA

Nexen Tire has done an incredible job at the Formula Drift 2016 Long Beach, season opener.  They brought the ultra awesome, super gorgeous, and totally cover model Jess Harbour, together with forever beautiful Erica Nagashima, as well as refreshing new face Kay Vee to the event.

From the umbrella girls point of view, Nexen Tire models can totally rival the legendary Hankook team, by the number, by the star power, as well as by their confirms.  We totally tip our hats to the great job they have done!

Big Highlight Summary of Formula Drift 2016 Models! / Long Beach, CA / Py Pai

Models at Formula Drift events are the cream of the crop, which goes without saying.  They are the best of the best, rivaling the caliber shown in the SEMA shows.

Many of our Wheels and Heels Magazine cover models as well as feature models could be easily found among various top name brands, including Constance Nunes for Nitto Tires, Arley Elizabeth, Nicole Marie Reckers for Achilles, as well as Jess Harbour for Nexen, Jessica Weaver for Naked Sushi, and Dennii for GT Radial, L'Amour Niggle for McLeod, and Bianca Stam for Spocom.  There might be some that we did not find since this is such a big show and the weather was not quite the kind that people want to come out and run around...
 Talking about weather, this was on everybody's mind and top of the chatter box topics.  It rained on the first day of the event, which has caused so much damages and concerns that the official organization had to make cancel the qualifying rounds and settled for the standings from the last year.

Luckily, the main event day, was blessed with just sporadic flash showers.  the rain was not huge that put the tracks on the slippery condition again.

Across the overcast sky throughout the event, there was actually one moment that the sun made a strong effort to peek through the thick clouds, and gave us a wonderful and beautiful lighting condition.

Bet you don't know that rainy day is pretty much as bad as a super hot day for models.  Both have humidity problem which cause the models' hairs to go frizzy.

However, we witnessed these awesome models in their full strength and combating cold and wetness.  They still brave the uncomfortable micro weather condition, and gave everybody a very memorable picture to take home to put on the social media.

 Among many friendly and familiar faces, we also made some new acquaintances who are super awesome to say the least.  It's a refreshing new air breathed to the highly competitive industry.

Especially, we met the new Hankook girls (Sarah Top was with Hankook last year already), and the Kandy Shop Bikinis / Spearmint Rhino girls are totally awesome.

Not only the Kandy Shop Bikinis / Spearmint Rhino girls are like super models, they worked harder than any other models else at the show.  They came in early, they leave late, they walked all over the venue, they were super friendly to the show attendees, and media folks, as well as fellow models.  They were definitely the sunshine of the show that we can prove.

 It's an exciting combination of the top models that we have gratefully worked with in the past, as well as the great models that we have covered many times, plus the new faces that we can tell who have great career future in the industry,

Formula Drift event time again and again, is definitely a major event that models are vying for a great exposure to the promotional world as well as a great resume item for sure.

We want to thank the Formula Drift Team that gave us the great opportunity to bring you the top quality work capturing the greatness of these models in their awesome appearances.

 We here at,  Wheels and Heels Magazine, have been covering the Formula Drift events in southern California since 2009.  These 8 years going, including this year, have been nothing but the great reward to us.

We have met many amazing promotional personalities, fellow media-family members, as well as great vendors and companies.  And of course, the exposure to the drifting world is unparalleled than anything else that we have participated in other areas.

We came from zero knowledge of the drifting activities and events, to the day that we could talk about the drivers and their achievements, as well as greatly appreciate all types of drifting movements across the community, or even to the entertainment realm.

Thank you The Formula Drift Team!

Here is a big summary of the great model photos that we captured from the Formula Drift 2016 Long Beach, the season opener.  The cars and drifting portions will come soon as we are still processing the thousands of photos that we gathered.
