It’s not every day that our company gets to hold a meet at our El Segundo, CA, headquarters but when Need for Speed came to us with a chance to let readers and fans alike have a crack at the new SHIFT2 game before its release, it was just too hard to pass up. After some quick planning and car reconnaissance, we had ourselves the makings of a great car meet. Quality over quantity was the theme for this event, and some of the best cars from all over California converged on our parking lot to show off their latest mods and styles. Inside our photo and tech centers, Need for Speed was kicking it off in full force with a gnarly force-feedback setup that literally put you in the driver seat of SHIFT2. Fans had a chance to race against Vaughn Gittin Jr. and try to beat his lap time in the game.
As the day wound down, the meet had rekindled much of our love for small car gatherings, and we’re hoping to have many more in the near future at our offices. Stay tuned and, hopefully, we’ll see you out next time if you’re in the Los Angeles area.
