Night-Import: Photography and Words by William Lee

Race Day-35
After an awesome time at Lexus The Pursuit III with my boys Low N Slow, I went straight to another event that luckily wasn't too far from where I lived. A good friend of mine, Norman, was hosting his own event for the first time and I had to attend to support while doing coverage. Most of you guys who only show won't understand how much time and effort is needed in order to create an event. It might sound easy, but the cost, location, people you need to talk to, notifying the police department, etc., takes a long time. It's definitely worth it if an event has a good turnout, but not knowing what will happen really gives a huge amount of pressure. I really can't compare such situations to mine when I hosted a meet at JIC Magic few months ago, but even that was a PITA to manage. Either way, I gotta give mad props to Norman for hosting an event at a Go Kart Racing place (Racing Edge Karting) in Burbank. Thumbs up buddy!

Race Day-1
One of my favorite TSXs was parked inside the Go Kart area. I've seen this car since last year when I got into the scene and liked everything about it.

Race Day-4
I suck at taking drift shots, so took this opportunity to practice with Go Karts :D

Race Day-2

Race Day-6
There's the man behind this whole event. Norman's like "What!"

Race Day-7
While chilling inside the place with a few friends of mine, our editor Edgar Lozoya decided to buy this big ass pizza. I think it was like $50 or something...

Race Day-8
Time to get serious!

Super Advans on a Civic? Pretty unique.

Can't go wrong with Enkei NTO3+Ms.

Race Day-22
I'm seeing this STi pretty often now.

Felipe's tC from Sciontific.

Dean's tC is a killer! This guy needs to go out to car shows more often!

Race Day-57
I totally forgot to take shots of the cars parked at the other side >:( I think I was going to wait until the sun went down, but left early because of so many photos I needed to edit from photoshoots and events. I did see AE86s, Low N Slow crew members, a few civics, etc. Sorry guys!

Here's another location where cars were parked. This place was pretty awesome because it was a small warehouse.

Race Day-36
Slammed Civic on CCWs I did a Random Nightlight feature on last year.

1UP crew!

Race Day-47
This rare classic belongs to Ryan, owner of the STi from 1UP. We talked for a long time about this beauty and I was very impressed with how much work he put into it in a short amount of time. If you still don't know what car this is, it's a Datsun Bluebird-U SSS and this particular model was in limited productions.

I should have taken more photos, but this is about it. Once again, sorry for not covering the other side of the showcase lot!
To Norman: Congratz on the good turnout! :)
