[COVERAGE] Carlisle Import and Performance Nationals ’21

May 21st, 2021 by Elusive Media

We are back!! Covid19 restrictions have been coming down all over the US and the Carlisle event has really felt like things are getting back to normal! Travel restrictions have come down and the attendance showed it! Import and Performance(I&P) this year was loaded, and i mean loaded with special and rare cars to check out. To name a few, Dune Buggy running the Baja 1000 (run by an all female-team), Volvo P1800 which has over 3 million miles!!, Jay Leno’s 2JetZ, Opel Rekord, Renault R5 Turbo 2, Opel Senator, and many more! I also love their new show field setup they introduced over the years. The section are now broken up into Countries; England, Germany, France, Japan, Korea, United States, Italy and Sweden. And to make sure you visited each location, you have a passport to to get stamped by their International Ambassadors. The 2 day event also packs in driving events; Drifting, Auto-X, car limbo, and rolling exhaust contest. Opel 15th annual National Meet made it their home at this years I&P. Enjoy this years photos from the wide variety of vehicles that attended!

[COVERAGE] Carlisle Import and Performance Nationals ’20

August 30th, 2020 by Elusive Media

This show has always been a spring event, but 2020 has a question mark if anything was ever going to get started. Happy to see one of my favorite shows return! Such a wide variety of import cars, from your modern day JDMs to classic British roadsters! This years format was a bit scaled back as covid19 still presented some restrictions, but many still traveled from afar! If Carlisle was able to get this show off, you know it will be back next year! Congrats to Carlisle staff for putting on another great show that allowed us to come together! It was much needed for everyone, especially myself! Enjoy the photos!!

[COVERAGE] Carlisle Import and Performance Nationals

May 24th, 2016 by Elusive Media

Carlisle is back at again and trying something new. Last year Performance & Style moved to a mid-summer date and this year it moves back to the spring, but with a twist! Performance & Style and Import are now combined. I personally love this idea. Being a car enthusiast, i enjoy taking photos of any well kept car and having a mix of cars that i normally don’t see at the shows i cover, this was a exciting add to the scenery. The only gripe with the whole weekend, Friday was a perfect day, while Saturday & Sunday weren’t anything close to car show weather. After all the years going to Carlisle, i’ve never had such a rainy day. Once i arrived to the fairgrounds, it rained from start to finish. Despite the weather, plenty of fellow enthusiast with pristine cars braved the weather and still came to show off their pride and joy. Burnout, Miss Carlisle, Limbo, Drift, Awards, etc, all still carried on so there was plenty to keep you distracted all day long! Already looking forward to next years show, just not a repeat of my shooting all day with an umbrella tucked under my arm!
