The first 86EXPO presented by FT86CLUB was a great success by any measure. We saw a turnout of just over 100 FR-S/BRZ and could not have asked for a nicer or more passionate group of owners/members who showed up with (or without) their cars.
Check out the event video trailer and other event photos/videos at: http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?t=39227
86EXPO began with autocross night, where many owners had their first ever track/autocross experience, and most seem to already be hooked! For those who didn’t make autocross night, there was still plenty to experience the next day at the car show and meet, as well as more driving experiences – a 3 hour cruise together through beautiful Nevada landscape.
Thanks to everyone for coming out! Thanks to all our staff and those who volunteered or helped out in any way! And thank you to all the sponsors of the event (AVO Turbo World, Beat-Sonic, Cusco, FT-86 SpeedFactory, JPM Coachwork, Genome Tuning, Zeta Performance, Turtle Factory, Racer X, & NorCal 86 Club)!

Dome has released information about its new Toyota GT86 GT300 car. The new car is based on a composite chassis which will be commercially available at a low cost due to an innovative construction that does not use a honeycomb core. It has been built at the behest of Super GT organizers GTA that want to make the second tier GT300 class more focussed on domestically built tuner cars rather than imported GT3 machines.
