Car Show Set for November

The state-of-the-art world of automobiles and auto accessories will soon be on display as Spectrum Promotions and Style 96.5FM stages Cayman’s second international car show on Saturday, 19 November at the Lion’s Centre.

The show is being staged in collaboration locally with Tony Williams of Tony’s Toys and internationally with Slipstream Global, the US-based marketing management firm that helped to coordinate the inaugural car show, held as part of the Quincentennial Celebrations in 2003, said a press release.

Slipstream Global will once again assist in staging and promoting the show, which brings state-of-the-art auto entertainment including a demonstration of ‘drifting’ – the latest phenomenon in custom car shows – to be performed by Chris Frosberg and Vaughn Gittin of Drifters Alliance, the release said.

The show’s entertainment will also feature live performances from local bands and is once again poised to attract a host of international media to the Cayman Islands. Editors from motor sport magazines Super Street, Modified, Import Tuner and Speed Mag will be in Grand Cayman to cover the event, along with G4 TV.

‘This car show represents a tremendous marketing opportunity for local businesses, especially those involved in the auto and related industries,’ said Gavin Smith, general manager of Spectrum Promotions/Style FM.

Mr. Smith noted that Cayman stand to benefit internationally from the auto show, which was a hit among car enthusiasts in North America, given the emphasis on featuring Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) cars. ‘They are the latest craze in the industry and our show incorporates an abundance of JDM vehicles within easy reach of the United States where these vehicles are in high demand,’ he said.

Local auto enthusiasts are welcome to vie for one of many coveted title trophies such as Best Performance Vehicle, Best Classic and Best ICE (In Car Entertainment) in Show plus a variety of others. Expert instruction in a number of workshops will be provided.
