The Annual SoCal Euro GTG Moves to Hollywood - Event

Goin' Hollywood

Every year we look forward to the big SoCal Euro GTG. It's undoubtedly one of the largest events in California, attracting the entire spectrum of European cars from VW and Audi, to BMW, Volvo and even exotics. There's no formal show or awards to worry about; you simply show up, park and enjoy the day with your fellow Euro brethren.

Through the years, organizer Lon Mok has taken the event to new levels, moving the GTG from Santa Barbara to Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego two years ago. In '09, an autocross added more excitement. But this year, the event went Hollywood, with the new W Hotel as the backdrop.

More than 600 cars showed up early on a Saturday morning to celebrate the event's new venue and recent partnership with the Targa Trophy Triple Crown Series.

If you're unfamiliar with Targa Trophy, it's a lifestyle rally that resembles the Gumball. The entry fee isn't cheap, which was certainly highlighted by the roster of competitors ranging from Italian supercars to Porsche and Mercedes AMG. In an effort to increase the number of spectators, the start of the rally coincided with SoCal Euros giving attendees a chance to admire their favorite supercars.

While the Targa cars were impressive, the Cali Euro community didn't disappoint either. Every trendsetting Euro was present with countless OEM+ and slammed air-ride examples. Even West Side Mexico made the journey from south of the border to display their Dubs.

Year after year, we never know what to expect at SoCal Euro, but it continues to draw the hottest cars on the West Coast. For extended coverage from the event, visit eurotuner.com
