Mfest IV Photos by Sard [Set 1/2]

Hello Guys! Back from MFest IV and that drive home was a bitch! 7 hours to OC. Good thing I had some cool people to caravan home with. Speaking of which, I had a great time hanging out with Thomas Le, Nico, Tony, Alex Vega, Thomas Chen, Toby, Andrew, Starlet, Annie, Yvonne, Sheena, Jurian, and Mario/gf. I appreciate the company and good times. Also enjoyed dining at Cut in the Palazzo...yumm..best steak I've had (also most expensive and my first Wagyu). Ate with Ed Lin, David@Status, Tina Thi, Jason, Harris and Rick (I needed a good laugh and sorry for the rest I forget the names to).

MFest itself was ok. The obvious up in everyone's game. More wild cars. Meeting friends I havn't seen in a year was nice. Everyone's chill. Although it did seem a little more rushed as the show day was also on the track day. Actually, I'm not sure exactly what the show event is because either I missed something big, or there is no actual "show". At the end, winners were announced. I'm guessing a panel of judges just walked around the lot and picked. It was more organized than last year. The free drinks at the beginning of Tao was sweet. Lol I think this contributed to many people getting smashed..and I mean getting checked out by a paramedic smashed.
As always here are all my photos. It took me three days to process them all so there's the delay and so I hope you enjoy. I'll post most of them, but you'll find the complete album at http://jhwe.zenfolio.com/p407455015

====Thursday Pre Registration====


This is on Thursday at the preregistration. Dinner at Wingstop, I got the lemon pepper wings which were salty as shit, but delish!


The engine bay of the 'Man' himself


Where the prereg took place


Radzm's ride




Toby with the track numbers

====Friday 5:30 am, Tustin Caravan====










Powerchip, more on that later =D












Alex Vega's ride




My ride


Barstow roll in


Pencilgeek's car, Sam the man with the masterplan driving








Joanna


Sha


Need a tow?


I believe this is Scott Chu's car. Hey when ya gonna post your photos! =D













All the sudden I hear over the loudspeaker.."Hey you... you with the black jacket.." Lol had to be Thomas


First victim for a portrait, only two people (two girl friends) the entire time actually refused a photo


Eric aka Greeneyes sporting his Canon 5d Mark II






Token pooch




More fro than the Harlem Globe Trotters


This cop was pretty cool (for now), cracking jokes and stuff, giving us tips on keeping the streets safe


Bmwpulse's hottie, I mean caster






Avo's turbo G


Arkym represent! Lovin the new parts






Ida Viga Mang
















Trung, he won the "I'm at every meet" award, j/k




Here's the Lambo that got pulled over doing 110 mph


Sha and friend




Gullwing doors are cool, until they realize it's on a BMW. Left of the photo is also Brian and Omid!






The chopper taking footage of MFest


Niterider




It took an eternity to round the corner to park in the Palazzo..but it wasn't without rewards




Level 3, our designated parking!






Buffet at Wynn


Jurian purposefully ruining my photos


Nico and Annie, my roomates along with Thomas. They didn't make a single sound when sleeping. Maybe cuz they were smashed! We'll save the details


Never seen crab legs sliced open for ya! Very nice






Andrew got a little too excited







====Saturday, bright and early...5am.. again====


Arrival at the speedway, trying to figure out where the event actually is. We saw many many U-turns...

Big Mike .. ya don't say!


Mark G checking in, that's the new hair fad ladies!


Panorama of the entire event






New Arkym spoiler for the Z4


Matt flashing my car with the Powerchip tune! The car feels faster. Flooring 1st gear makes the DSC light blink the entire time now. When it shifts into 2nd gear, the rear fishtails a little. Good stuff. No more CEL too!






















Hey the Chippendale show's at the Rio!


Parade lap










Omid on the track






Thomas Le on the track


Tony/Yellowfever .. had a fun race on the freeway on the way home!
