86Fest 2016

Celebrating Toyota's cult classic

Aug 18, 2016

It's no secret that we, the Super Street staff, are fanboys of Toyota's lightweight, rear-wheel-drive compact, the 86. We've built Ratchet Bunny, a Scion Tuner Challenge car with an HKS supercharger kit, a second Scion Tuner Challenge car with ITB followed that, and we have the ongoing Jackson Racing powered Hot Lava FR-S. Oh, and don't forget, we've also added an AE86 coupe to the list of editor project cars. As you can imagine, 86Fest was on our list of events that we absolutely had to go to. This year marked a milestone for the popular blog Motormavens and Turn 14 Distribution as they celebrated 86Fest's 5th anniversary in a return to Auto Club Speedway in Fontana, Calif.

"86Fest 5 was definitely a growth year for us," 86Fest founder Antonio Alvendia says. "We were able to level up the event by adding an actual racetrack motorsports component along with autocross. Traditionally we highlighted the car show and industry garage sale."

The aforementioned track component was the new DBA USA 86Fest Challenge-an all AE86 and all FR-S/BRZ shootout, which Antonio says will have a point system next year. Over 300 cars registered for the car show, and according to track staff over 5,000 people attended. Needless to say, there were plenty of cars sporting Rocket Bunny aero or some sort of hybrid mix. Toyota even got involved and brought out the new Toyota 86 Prototype and parked it next to Antonio's Kouki AE86. Impressively enough, Antonio was able to convince the ADVAN racing team to bring their super rare Toyota 86 14R60.

Without a doubt, 86Fest 5 was their biggest event to date. Believe it or not, Antonio and the Motormavens crew are expecting to have an even bigger event next year. We're sure the fiercely loyal 86 crowds will be there to celebrate their passion for Toyota's cult classic sports car.
