Meet Arianny Celeste At Driven 2016 in Calgary

arianny-celeste-calgary is excited to announce that Arianny Celeste, long time UFC Octagon girl, will our featured guest at Driven 2016 being held at the Olympic Oval on May 7th. You may also know her from Overhaulin’ where she was a co-host, or you may have seen her grace the cover of Playboy. She will be at the show from 2-5pm so if you’re interested in meeting her, make sure you get down to the show early and come to our booth/stage. She will be signing autographs, selling posters/calendars and of course taking photos with her fans!

Driven 2016 is already sold out for exhibitors, and we’ve got some big plans again for our booth so we’re excited to have Arianny be a part of it and look forward to everyone that will make it down. Starting this year, the show will be ending a bit earlier so be sure to get down early to ensure you have enough time to see everything and check out all the vehicles (over 450!) at the show. To save time, be sure to pre-purchase tickets on the Driven 2016 website. Improvements have been made for the entry process for pre-purchased tickets to avoid the major congestion the show experienced last year due to the big crowds but I can’t say it often enough, come down early!

Driven 2015 Winnipeg Show Coverage


Pictures from this past weekend’s Driven 2015 show in Winnipeg are finally being posted, I tried to get every car but if I missed anyone, my apologies. This was my first time in Winnipeg and let me tell you, I had no idea it was so humid there! Shooting the Formula Drift Canada demo on hot pavement in that humidity was no fun at all, but luckily there was also the main Driven 2015 show which was inside an air conditioned building at the Red River Exhibition grounds.

I took a few of the shots while up on a mobile lift to give a bird’s eye view of the show and you’ll notice a gentleman in the shot above taking a picture of me. He was quite upset that I was not certified (read: union) to operate the lift and that I wasn’t harnessed in. If anyone knows him, please let him know I survived the lift (and Winnipeg!).

I’m going to highlight some of my favorites at the show here in the post, but you’ll be able to find the rest of the shots in the gallery at the end of the post. First up was this “KRX” K-swapped CRX, easily one of my favorites.

Formula Drift Canada Demo at Driven 2015 Winnipeg


As part of the Driven 2015 tour in Winnipeg, Formula Drift Canada came out to put on a spectacular drift demo for all of those in attendance. Ben Woo, VP of Formula Drift Canada put on a great demonstration of the sport by going over the basic rules, explained how drifting is judged and went over the main techniques that drivers use to drift their vehicles. Drivers put on solo, tandem as well as triple drifts burying the fans and the venue under a thick wall of tire smoke. Based on how loud the crowd got at some points, it is safe to say they loved it.

We captured a few shots of the event which you can check out in the gallery!

Video: The Girls of Driven 2012

So we’ve already shared a few pictures from Driven 2012 Calgary this past weekend, and now here is a short video we put of the models working the show floor. Sorry for not getting more Dannie Riel footage in here, she was busy most of the day attending to all her fans that showed up so we didn’t want to drag her away. Instead we have quite a bit of coverage for Jennifer Nguyen during her shoot with the photographers in front of the Carrera GT. Enjoy!
