The first ever Scion FR-S Cup, presented in collaboration with the team at HPI Racing, took place at Toyota Headquarters on the morning of November 17th. Although the weather was cold and, at times, uncooperative, there was still a great turn out with a ton of racers, vendors, media and spectators all in attendance.
The races took center stage for the day, with approximately 100 competitors pitting their Scion FR-S RC cars against one another on the track. The field was divided into three classes for skill levels ranging from beginner to expert, with the winners from each class facing off for the title of the Scion FR-S Cup Champion. Among the field were a few familiar names from the Scion Racing teams, including Dynamic Autosports Scion tC driver Michele Abbate, and Need for Speed Drift tC team manager Stephan Papadakis.
Between races, attendees also had the chance to check out the Scion vehicle demo area, and take an up close look at products from vendors like FIVE:AD, OEM Audio +, Beat-Sonic, and a whole lot more. Catering for lunch came courtesy of the Seoul Sausage Company, while the B Sweet Dessert Truck stopped by to provide the group with pastries for desserts.
Thanks to everyone who showed up, from the racers and pit crews, to the vendors and spectators, without whom the HPI Racing Scion FR-S Cup wouldn’t have been possible!
