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!
Was it the rainy weather during the weekend? The fact that Driven did not make a stop in Calgary for 2011? Tuners in Calgary looking for a great excuse to show off their hard work? Whatever the reason, Driven 2012 was packed with some amazing builds from all the shops, clubs and individuals. The show was buzzing all day and everyone we talked to said they had an amazing time this weekend. The line-up to see the Driven 2012 feature model Dannie Riel did not let up all day, those sharpies definitely got a workout!
A big thank you to everyone that came out to support the show especially the illmotion team for putting on such a huge collection of crazy cars and raising money for charity with merchandise sales! Congratulations to all the winners. We know you don’t put all that hard work into your rides for a car show trophy, but its always good to get some official recognition! Keep it up and I think it safe to say everyone is looking forward to what we’ll see next time these rides are shown off.
The Driven 2012 Car show is less than two weeks away and the various clubs and shops are preparing to bring their best cars, trucks and bikes to the Olympic Oval to showcase all the hard work they’ve put into their rides over the winter that didn’t want to end. Well, the snow is gone and the show will be hitting town on June 9th so be sure to mark that on your calendars if you haven’t done so already.
In addition to all the hot rides and entertainment many of you are also there to meet your favorite car show models. A few of the feature models have been announced for the show, Dannie Riel who burst onto the import scene back at the SCN Calgary show will be making a return visiting us from Vancouver. Jennifer Nguyen, who you may recognize from the pages of Maxim magazine will be visiting from Toronto and finally we’ll have a local favorite Steph Ly (fun fact: she was the very first beyond model!) visiting us from Toronto as well.
Less than two weeks out, hope to see you all there!
