A tradition of driving generations of car enthusiasts

The 22nd Trans Sport Show opens on May 30-June 2 at the SMX Convention Center and continues to be a driving force in the car industry, not only as a general automotive show but as an enduring automotive brand that embodies generations of Filipino car enthusiasts.

"We have met a lot of fathers and sons, whole families in fact, through the years, who had a steady diet of the Trans Sport Show," says Tradeshow International President Sophie de los Santos.

"It was the inspiration for the show's new slogan - 'Driving Generations'. When we started seeing dads with their L-type Lancers, passionately staring at restored examples with their sons who now drive the latest generation cars, we knew that was what really represented the show," Miss de los Santos adds.

'Driving Generations' will be formally launched as the Trans Sport Show's new slogan at this year's showc oinciding with the 2nd Philippine Nostalgic Motor Show; a perfect platform for the enthusiast to understand why the car crazy Filipinos love their cars, no matter what age or genre they come from.

Event highlights include:

DTM@TSS. At flag off there will be displays of the Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft (DTM) inspired cars and the launch of an old-school racing event called the 'Class DTM Championship'. For the uninitiated, DTM is the German Touring Car Championship, a highly prized race series in Europe in the  mid-1980s. Initially a race of only German marques, Audi, BMW, Mercedes Benz, the series DTM evolved to include non-German brands like Alfa Romeo. Members of the Philippine DTM Revival, an organization of German touring race car enthusiasts will promote this series at the show.

WRC@TSS. Group B rally cars  that have made significant impact in the international rally circuit, including the World Rally Championship (WRC) and the  Asia Pacific Rally Championships will be represented in the show . Two of these cars were game changers--the mighty Audi Quattro (a road going version will be displayed) and the wild-to-drive Nissan 240RS. The 240RS also saw action in the Philippine race scene in the late 80s driven by rally legends like Robert Aventajado. There were about 5 240RS in the Philippines during the hey-days of rally. We also have a 80s Opel Manta B.

JDM@TSS. The Trans Sport Short began the trend of JDM (Japan Domestic Model) cars with a persistent display of Japanese show cars. This year we have foreign Japanese car judges to help continue the unbroken tradition of judging integrity and choice of the show. 2013 sees the return of Minoru Gouko, a well-known Japanese auto aficionado and Toshihiko Ohno, former president of Toyota Motor Co. of Japan and a much-revered car enthusiast. Mr. Gouko and Mr. Ohno together with long time Trans Sport Show judge Osamu Hasegawa will lead the panel this year.

DJ+EMEX@TSS. The connection between cars and music has never been highlighted than a sound off for EMEX MANILA (Electronic Music Conference and Audio Expo) . DJ Jam@Trans Sport Show  with Manolet 'DJ Papi' Santos and Boyet Sison of Switch DJ leading the group.
