R1 Concepts 2nd Annual Open House

R1 Concepts 2nd Annual Open House

What a crazy event! On September 28th 2013, we hosted our 2nd Annual R1 Concepts Open House here at the R1 Concepts headquarters. With the help of social media and the love of our supporters, this event blew up like Paul Walker and his Eclipse in “The Fast and The Furious”. In the world of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, our event banners were rapidly shared by fans, friends, and followers. At this point we knew it was going to be a big turnout.

All of R1 Top Models came together to party one last time for the summer. Melyssa Grace, Brittani Paige, Lori Lin, and Amber Alvarez were busy entertaining the crowd throughout the day while DJ GOLD EFX thumping beats in the background!

The Stunning Melyssa Grace came rolling in with her Audi R8! We were hoping to see her roll up in her Drift Machine Nissan 240sx. It’s RARE to find a model that is a true car enthusiast.

Hot Import Nights also brought some HIN models to come party with us. Gwendolynne Gee, Chelsea Lee and Erica Law were out entertaining attendees while passing out flyers for Hot Import Nights @ the Auto Club Speedway Saturday October 19th.

With over 120+ registered cars for the show and a ton of auto enthusiasts in attendance, we saw every style of cars out here. Everything from JDM, Euro, American Muscle, Off-Road Trucks, VIP, and Stance built cars came out. Knowing we were doing trophies for 12 categories, and having to judge all the registered cars, it was going to be very tough to judge all the amazing cars.

By the end of the day, all the judges came to conclusion that we needs more categories. More categories means more trophies! But no fear, we’re already planning for next years event— more categories for everyone to go after! Here’s just a few cars that came out to show off their rides.

While scoping out the cars throughout the street we noticed we seen a few of our customers rockin’ their Custom R1 Concepts Rotors.

We had a raffle with plenty of giveaways, provided by us and the fellow vendors that helped donated. All proceeds will be given to the charity ‘Cruise for a Cause’ which support Breast and Prostate Cancer Research.  R1 Concepts tripled the amount of proceeds through our raffle which resulted in over a total of $1300 worth of donations.

We want to give a big shout out to the vendors involved in the R1 Movement and those who have donated towards the show. Thank you Mod Bargains, Limitless Society, Nutek Wheels, Hollux Industries, Klouds Vapor, Concept III and Extreme Autowerks.
