Subject: Get Green Racing Looks To PRI Trade Show
(Posted on Nov 21, 2012 at 04:10PM by Steven A) Tags:
All race industry professionals and busy thinking about Thanksgiving and their families this week but starting next week is the race industry’s Performance Industry Trade Show in Orlando. Green Racing is growing and PRI Orlando is the place to see new products and innovations along with the hundreds of companies displaying their products and services at the show.

The PRI Trade show started in Indianopolis as an industry trade show for the race industry in a time when the race industry was gaining in popularity.  With the success of the race industry came rapid growth. There wasn’t green racing then or even green racing news but the show had grown so much that the PRI trade show moved to Orlando to keep up with its growth.

We’ll be there looking and talking to sponsors, teams and suppliers and reporting live on Green Racing News PRI Orlando. Look for us if you are there,
Subject: Reinvented Products on Display at 2012 SEMA
(Posted on Nov 6, 2012 at 08:31PM by Steven A) Tags:

Necessity may be the mother of invention, but reinvention demands sheer fun.

 

The 2012 SEMA show offered the expected innovations, allowing guests to glimpse a chrome-plated future. The titans of the automotive industry (Ford, Jeep, Toyota and others) all displayed their latest wonders. Between the endless aisles of concept cars and alternative engines, however, was something far more experimental: repurposed products.

 

Within the Las Vegas setting, visitors were treated to new designs of forgotten pieces. Consider the Translog “Ghia Monster”, found tucked along the many SEMA outdoor displays. This sleekly shaped car was once a mere shell, with its 1972 Karmann body damaged almost beyond recognition. Translog rescued it, however, by offering it a pedigreed chassis from Porsche and custom welding. This blended the past with the present, and the result was nothing less than spectacular.

 

The artists of Badger Airbrushing embraced the green philosophy as well: recycling a vintage Ford body. They transformed it into a pool table, invigorating the 50s design with bold colors and dramatic detailing. This piece proved to be a showstopper, drawing crowds with every hour. Its leopard printed top was a sharp contrast to the surrounding steel.

 

SEMA always offers progress. The 2012 show, however, brought new life to old products.

Subject: New Ideas Found at SEMA 2012

The future always embraces change... and so does SEMA.

SEMA 2012 followed the example of its predecessors, offering visitors a hint of what’s to come within the automotive world. Daring concepts dominated the Las Vegas Convention Center, where the show is held each year.

The Nevada sun seems always to shine, but even it was outdone by the glittering lines of RK Concepts’ motorcycle designs. These machinescreated by Austin designer Rafik Kaissigreeted visitors as they first entered the SEMA arena. Their striking shapes (collections of valves, spring coils and textured gears) seemed plucked from a dystopian novel. Engraved panels and artistically riveted seats caught every eye. Traditional bikes seemed suddenly dull.

There are new stripes on the Las Vegas strip: Ford Racing introduced its 2013 Cobra Jet. This concept car dazzled guests, boasting a sleek white body and blue striping details. The slender lines proved intriguing. The innovative mechanics (such as a V-8 engine with turbocharger capabilities, and the inclusion of signature Eco-Boost technology), however, promised a car worthy of the future.

RK Concepts and Ford Racing were not alone in their quests for bold ideas. SEMA 2012 instead offered countless exhibits, all trying to redefine what is expected and what is wanted.

AAPEX Show.
My wife and I attended the AAPEX Show, which was located at Sands Casino Convention Center.

AAPEX represents the $395 billion global motor vehicle aftermarket. More than 128,000 professionals from around the globe participate in Automotive Aftermarket Industry Week in Las Vegas, Nevada.

AAPEX is your connection to automotive aftermarket industry leaders and innovators all in one place. Automotive parts wholesale distributors, retailers, service chains, jobbers and service professionals attend AAPEX. These buyers represent billions of dollars in buying power.
 
I was able to speak to several companies and individuals that seemed very interested in learning
more about how to become a partner with Get Green Racing.
AAPEX Show is only on the 1st and 2nd floor at the Sands Conventions Center.
Much easier to navigate.
In the next couple of days I will be doing follow-up’s with all my contacts made at the show.

In the meantime race fans stay tuned for more exciting posts…

Subject: Get Green Raceing SEMA show day 2 and 3

Sunny day again and it took forever to get here on the shuttle bus from the hotel. The crowds were enormous and its hard to put it into perspective with a camera lens although I attempted for do so.

This show is enormous! Almost too large to see everything but we tried our best. There are exhibitors from China with just about anything car related you can think of. One thing that stood out was the number of ‘car wrap film’ type’ companies as I describe them.  This new material is amazing. The crowds being drawn by the live application were a testament of the interest in this product. You can change the look of your vehicle or add graphics to your vehicle almost immediately using your local sign shop. You can even install the material on your wheels and have it installed for as little as $3 per foot. When you want a new look or are just plain tired the material peels off without damaging your paint job.  

Out in the central area there was a race track set up and after our lunch Red Bull’s drift cars were entertaining the crowds. Between the smell of burning rubber, the roar of the cars screaming as they drift across the track or how close they come right smack in front of me as I used my press pass to get right next to the concrete barriers.  No doubt these drivers know how to drive these machines. Pretty amazing when you think of it.

The second day of SEMA was a huge success in my overall impression. As Halloween night approached and we made our way back to the hotel for cocktails Vegas seemed like it was definitely the go to spot to celebrate crazy.

I'm new to this blogging. So I'm sure once i get the hang of this it will start to make sense.

Waking up Halloween day in Las Vegas at the HGVC Flamingo with sunshine was a great start.

Better yet... having my beautiful wife Annette in attendace for the week with me makes me very happy.

We drove over to the SEMA Show, located at the Hilton Convention center.
Parking was a breeze. Wearing a nice sport jacket and short sleeve shirt was a great idea.Throwing on a comfortable pair of running shoes was a must.

I must say, I don't recall this large of a crowd from my previous other shows I've attended.

This picture is me with the Chevy OS Racing Car.

The new Get Green Racing website is coming along with all the bells and whistles looking awesome.

I can't thank Steven Arsenault with Webstager / OneBigBroadcast enough for setting this up.

I know one thing the weather is awesome, people running the SEMA show are great and networking with several companies is going awesome.

Thursday I hit the AAPEX show at the Sands Convention Center.

Time to call it a day at the SEMA Show Media center.

Sema Show Get Green Racing Team coverageLast night’s flight to Vegas seemed somewhere anticipatory as one of the largest shows on the planet dealing with specialty automotive products – and I was going. It seemed a bit nostalgic though – in our ever connected world I am used to being amused by the multitude of TV and pay per view channels. Last night the satellites were all down – likely due the storm of the century already touching 60 million people in the eastern US. Hurricane Sandy was being felt even at 30,000 feet above the Nevada desert!

Tuesday, back to Vegas – the sun is shining, not a cloud in the sky and after wondering around to get my press pass I was ready to start. First the show is massive. I was told you need a month to really get through it all and I now see why. There is eye candy everywhere with cars and trucks along with everything to repair, make them go faster or look way cool. There is something here for everyone in the specialty auto business.

I saw one product that caught my eye called Lizard Skin. It is a paint product that shields heat. Since I drive a classic 1961 Jaguar XK 150. It was a paint product that when applied keeps the surface cool. Jaguar was know for heat issues so when ever I drive my ride in the summer – it way hot inside and without air conditioning almost unbearable some days. From what I could gather with this new product I could apply this a significantly reduce my inside temperature. Cool.

I’ll be covering more of the show tomorrow but in my opinion SEMA is definitely the place to go for the specialty professional. If its not at SEMA its not worth looking at!
