Import Alliance Atlanta 2016 - Broads in Atlanta

Scene: Atlanta Motor Speedway - Hampton, GA

Jun 15, 2016

Our list of must-see places in Atlanta includes the Porsche Experience Center, Petit Le Mans at Road Atlanta, Coca-Cola Museum, Turner Field, and Magic City... But we have another spectacle to add to that list, the get-together known as Import Alliance (IA).

If you're into hanging out in a friendly and chill environment with enthusiasts from all over the East Coast, Midwest, and South, Import Alliance is your cup of sweet tea. This year marked IA's 10th anniversary as the two-day get-together went down at Atlanta Motor Speedway (former venue of NOPI, for you veterans out there). One thing to remember about IA Atlanta is that it's not a judged car show. It's as grassroots as it gets, a place to cruise together with your buddies and a chance to meet guys you might only know by their Instagram name. And whether you drive a stock Civic, bagged Scion, drift-ready 240, or $100K GT-R, the masses come together and without any drama. We certainly appreciated the number of dedicated people who drove from long distances; many averaged two- to four-hour drives, but we also ran into a several fellas from the Midwest with 10+ hour drives. Import Alliance is quite the phenomenon, and you can count on us being there next year—along with 10,000+ other friends!
