When it comes to car meets in South Florida there's always the common complaints: There's going to be nothing but Hondas! It's going to be a bunch of kids doing burnouts! The food is gonna suck! It's too expensive! It's …
Back by popular demand, Miami Grand Drift Round 2 returned to the Miami GP race track in Opa Locka, FL. With nearly a dozen competitors the event lasted from 10 in the morning till sunset with nothing but smokin’ tarmac and a ton of spectators from all parts of Florida.
The Tropical GT Shootout run by a group known as the Formula & Automobile Racing Association (FARA) at Homestead Raceway was an event meant for automotive enthusiasts in all forms.

Check out our coverage of this event and see some of the amazing automobiles that were brought out to compete!
Random Fact: I’m an Accord Enthusiast. I love these cars. I own a site specifically for Florida Accords and this past weekend was our third annual meet. Attendance wasn’t HUGE – but this wasn’t about numbers. This was about a community and it definitely felt that way. Even the Florida rain couldn’t stop us from taking photos and throwing ribs and chicken on the grill!
The HIN/NOPI supershow is a joint car show/tour being hosted at various locations across the nation. Since rumors has it HIN was not returning to Miami this year, the supershow was planned to make its stop earlier than usual in Miami for what I figured was a feeler to see how things would turn out. While we weren’t able to attend the entire show, we managed to make our way over shortly after the Miami GP Drift event and grab some flicks of our favorites before the show was over. Enjoy and let us know what you thought of the event!
August 14th marked the finals for the Miami Grand Drift Challenge at Miami GP Raceway brought to you by PRS, FARA and Miami GP. The event was supposed to take place for only one weekend but was expanded out to three due to Florida’s amazing summer weather. Fortunately this meant some extra seat time for a lot of drivers and a bunch of interesting moments.
First and foremost, let me announce that Day 2 has been pushed to next Saturday NIGHT, August 14th. Today started out a little fishy with some questionable cloud cover on our way to the event. Not even an hour within my stay the event was more people finding cover from the rain than cars drifting. Luckily all the cars were in from the break as the track was flooded with nearly 3-4 inches of rain. None-the-less I present to you the reason why you’ll be able to catch part two of this event next week.
Day 1 of the Miami Grand Drift hosted by FARA, PRS and Miami GP has passed and our photos are now up for those of you wondering about the event. Our take? The track is dope and almost all the cars were eye-catching. If you missed day one then you better make it out to Day 2! The tandems for Class A Drivers were fresh, the people were hype and the more drifting that went on the more the track was getting flooded with spectators. Check out the photos to know what I’m talking about!
Remix Award Tour made their stop in Miami at the Sunlife Stadium inviting the folks in charge of HELLAFLUSH IV to Florida after the huge attendance at State of Stance in Delray Beach. Despite the confusion that this was solely a HellaFlush meet, the attendance was huge and it was nice to see a varying style of cars, models and companies from all parts of the states.
Before MW even decided to step foot into the
Miami Sunlife stadium for the Remix X HellaFlush 6 Miami event, we took a stroll around the parking lot to see what local and distant (we saw a couple NY tags) attendees were coming through in. Although we’re sure we might have missed a couple dope rides since we arrived a little late, this is just our little showcase of the cars we found worthy of walking around in the sweltering heat sweating our asses off for before heading in to the show. Enjoy!
