Import Alliance Summer Meet - Honda Tuning Magazine
Yes, but shutting the gates to spectators was not a decision of the Eibach Honda Meet staff. It was the Irwindale Police Department's idea to do. Our group, “Chennai Brotherhood Riders” otherwise known as the CBR owners group of Chennai, is a group which is dedicated to the owners.

Every single year, the overflow of spectators in the morning has effected how the event went and slowed roll-in and set-up dramatically. How hard is it to just show up when the event opens? Are you really missing anything by showing up on time?
You come early just to block traffic and to watch cars drive in. They are driving INTO an event that you will be attending and you will have plenty of time to look at these cars.Honda March Meet 2012
Seeing them drive to their parking spot is not anything amazing. Every year people show up hours early and congest the streets as well as the set-up process. You know how we can fix this problem? Again, if you followed instructions, you should know that you have to pay to get into the event and you have to pay for parking.
Things could have definitely been better, and it will get better next year, and the year after that if they plan to do another Eibach.
People will complain all they want because people love to complain and talk shit these days.
The changes that will be made in the future will be monumental and will improve things ten fold. Wayne, who is a fellow enthusiast such as yourself, had this to say in response to an overwhelming amount of complaints posted on the NWP4Life forums following the event.
First off I was at the event at 6: We blocked traffic, and blocked people from getting into the irwindale event on the other side of the track with the amount of people that showed up. We could only do so much and the best you can come up with is I hope Eibach feels good for making 24k or some shit off of the people who did get in?

The event got so big that the police felt that they had to do something to maintain control of the streets as well as the highways leading to and from Irwindale, CA.
With all that negative shit put aside, I think the event was great. I got as many photos as I could with the time presented to me. I was helping the rest of the friends and staff on hand to get everyone situated during roll-in, up to the point when the meet itself had already started. Everybody else worked their asses off the make things go as smoothly as possible and I congratulate and thank them for pulling it off. They worked their fucking asses off and should be commended for their time and effort.
We all wanted to enjoy the event as best we could too… Even though I only had a block of say, three hours to walk through the event and take photos, I was able to get a ton of good stuff. Like the Wekfest LA coverage, you will be looking at photos from Eibach all week.

If you see your car on here, that means I noticed your car. Blunt, yes, but necessary. I got what I got. Just wait and see… The lamest thing I saw on the Eibach Meet Facebook page was people repeatedly asking if someone took a photo of their car and what people thought of their builds.
How unbelievably desperate does that sound? Photos now… May and I arrived early in the morning around 7am to Irwindale Speedway. We were all busy helping out so I just snapped a photo whenever I could and let the camera in the car the rest of the time. Spotted this red hatchback on Mugen NR10Rs and thought it was pretty clean.
They were just spectators who showed up too early and caused traffic. On the day of day of the ride, we all had assembled at the starting point at the exact time!
There were a total of 5 bikes 3 red, 1 black and 1 tri-color. Since it was the early part of the morning, the cool breeze was an absolute delight and minimum traffic added to our happiness.
We had got so much attention from pedestrians, cars, buses and other bikes. The first leg of our trip was from Chennai to Chengalpetu.
The NH roads were fantastic to ride on and the scenery was absolutely amazing. We rode for about an hour and took our first pit stop on the way to Kanchipuram. This stop also acted as a photo shoot and all the riders discussed about each others bikes.
We even managed to spot three camouflaged cars that were being tested. We spent about 20 minutes talking and after that we headed to Kanchipuram for breakfast. Though the road to Kanchipuram was a little rough, the scenery was absolutely breathtaking.
It was fun to ride as we were in a single line formation and all the riders driving at a constant rate of speed.

We reached the hotel after 25 minutes and had a very tasty breakfast. After 30 minutes and with full tummies we began our return ride to Chennai. I must say, the roads in Kanchipuram were very confusing but the locals helped us to find the by-pass road. Finally we managed to get on the by-pass roads which were the best roads we had been on all day. The climate at this time was very hot but we kept riding without taking any breaks.
We then reached the Chennai-Bangalore highway.
