Event Recaps


HOTPIT Autofest – Round 3


Founded by veteran PRO Formula Drift driver Jeff Jones, Pro-Am Driver/BIG Duck Club Onwer RJ Contreas, Flavor Express Local Drift Series owner Rob McInerney, and Tarmac Functions Owner/Car Show host Adrian Ramirez


“I think we finally hit the mark and this is just a starting point of where we want to go. We had some of So-Cal‘s best drivers competing alongside Pro-Spec and PRO Formula D drivers. We’ve given out over 25k in cash purse prizes so far and I couldn’t be happier to see where this series is going. The Ark Movement Car Show portion was fantastic and we couldn’t even squeeze in another car or body in the area that we were given. Having a live band perform definitely upped the game. We also had over 20+ models that came out to be our official umbrella girls. If the sky’s the limit, were aiming to shoot past it. Can’t wait to see everyone at Round 4 for our Season Finale in December!.” Jeff Jones – CEO & Co-Founder of HOTPIT Autofest
