2012 Canadian Motorsports Expo
I was in Toronto for this years Canadian Motorsports Expo a couple of weekends ago and though there weren't many imports there were a few. Including this Porsche at the SportsCar Boutique booth. The show is mainly designed for wholesalers to show off their product to retail shops so it was somewhat of a mini PRI. But, I picked out a few pics more inline with what we're into. Check the pics after the jump. Dov's Subaru was one of, if not the cleanest of the show. It got a lot of love on our Facebook and Instagram... Check the write up HERE. You might recognize Patrick Cyr's AE86 from Formula Drift. Heard a rumor he will drive an all new Scion this coming season. Another shot of the Porsche we started with. Kind of a Nascar take on this 240. There were definitely a lot of Canadian Nascar fans in attendance so this one fit right in. As Antonio would say, it's Hella Tall. Mazda had a good presentation which included this
MazdaSpeed 3 Mazda 3 naturally aspirated 2.5L and a MazdaSpeed 2 right beside it...
...and of course the Mazda stage where they discussed the upcoming race season and held autograph sessions.
There was a booth selling all kinds of motorsports related books including multiple F1 books.
This Cobalt was across the Enkei Wheels booth sporting one of the most popular wheels in the industry, the RPF1. Which by the way is not made in a Cobalt fitment so these guys had to do some work to get them on. Similar to Will's Supercharged Cobalt SS we did a post on almost a year ago (time flies).
I believe this BMW 3 Series Castrol Touring Car was sitting in the Continental Tire booth. Driven by Rocco Marciello.
Finally, the Team FXDD Ferrari F458. Misnamed this one on our Instagram and got a bunch of hate mail... so sensitive. Thanks for the correction though. We don't know and don't pretend to know everything so we always welcome the criticism when we screw up.
Caught another shot of it as they were loading up.
Overall it was a decent show and glad we got to hang out with the guys at JRP and also meet some new people. A big thank you to all the guys at JRP including Andrew who took us around the great city of Toronto and also to Dov for helping us rep WMD during the show. - Alex
