The Grand 3-Ring Motoring Event
From its inception in 1992 as a general automotive show, Trans Sport Show has evolved from just a motorshow to becoming a part of the culture of Filipino automotive enthusiasts.
"It is amazing to meet enthusiasts who have been attending the show since 1992 - who now have children with the same interest and passion and have become Trans Sport Show patrons themselves," say Sophie delos Santos, Tradeshow International President.
The Trans Sport Show will be the venue for competing automotive aftermarket brands, custom car shops and tuning houses to show off their latest works of automotive art. As a throwback to the success of the Trans Sport Show for the past 20 years, this year's edition will showcase 13 of the Best of Show and Reserve Best of Show winners from past years. Making this milestone show even more special will be the attendance of Barry Meguiar, host of Speed TV series Car Crazy and President & CEO of Meguiar's Car Care Products.
Another bonus for the 2011 running of the TSS - branded as the Grand 3-Ring Motoring Event - are two other shows that will be taking place at the same venue, as the Trans Sport Show will also be the host of two other events: the 1st Philippine Nostalgic Motor Show (PNMS) and the 4th Manila Sports Car Club (MSCC) Concours Concours d' Elegance .
The Manila Sports Car Club (MSCC) Concours d' Elegance is the most prestigious vintage car competition in the Philippines, bar none. Limited to 30 of the best restored and preserved cars in the Philippines, entries will be judged by automotive experts from Hong Kong, Singapore, and Japan led by Chief Judge Osamu Hasegawa.
Also to be held at the TSS is the 1st Philippine Nostalgic Motor Show with a very special display of 12 collectible and some rare vintage racing vehicles. Old school car enthusiasts and historic racing aficionados will be given a treat as the lineup of cars ranges from rare cars like the 1960 Alfa Romeo Giullietta, to fast classics like a 1973 Porsche RSR, and even the popular 1984 Mitsubishi Lancer Turbo.
"Trans Sport Show literally spans generations and transcends demographic boundaries, drawing car lovers from all over," concludes delos Santos.
