Revolution Sie7e

Honda Tuning has often covered cars and events from Japan, Thailand, Philippines, and other regions well outside of the U.S., but we've yet to shed some light on our neighbors to the south in Mexico. A fairly short drive from San Diego, Calif., Rosarito offers some of the best views and oceanfront activity in the world. Aside from that, there's a thriving Honda community in that region that recently celebrated its seventh year of Revolution, a mega-meet of sorts spearheaded by BrothersJDM of Mexico that includes all makes and models but is unapologetically overshadowed by Honda street, show, and racecars.

Over 200 cars made their way to Baja Studios' waterfront facility. With over 50 acres situated next to the Pacific Coast, it provided a dramatic backdrop for the show.

As they arrived, attendees were greeted by announcements, lifestyle and food vendors, as well as aftermarket vendors like Klutch Wheels, live music, and a raffle that included high-end goods from the likes of AEM Electronics, TurboSmart, Turbo by Garrett, Supertech, and more.

The family-friendly environment and welcoming atmosphere combined with perfect Baja weather made this an event to remember for all involved. The success of the previous events have only bolstered attendance numbers and excitement - so much so that the 2019 Revolution Ocho event is already locked in for Sept 14th, 2019.
