TOV MEMBERS: NOTE THE EXCLUSIVE OFFER FOR ALL HONDA and ACURA OWNERS BELOW

DUBLIN, Ohio (June 7, 2006) – The downtown auto scene, highlighted by sport compact cars and bumping stereo systems, makes its way off of the city streets and into Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course for the third annual Unlimited Audio Accessories Triple Crown Tuner Challenge on June 23-25.

This three-day car show at the Lexington, Ohio racetrack will feature the hottest custom-tuned street cars from across the country competing in six classes: 4 Cylinder, 4 Cylinder forced induction/nitrous, 6 Cylinder, 6 cylinder forced induction/nitrous, 8/10 Cylinder, and 8/10 Cylinder forced induction/nitrous.

Tuner cars will compete in three separate categories – speed, style and sound – and the overall winner will be crowned “King of the Streets.”

“The presence of the tuner enthusiast has added a unique and exciting feel to the Grand American Rolex Sports Car Series weekend at Mid-Ohio,” said TrueSports, Incorporated President Michelle Trueman Gajoch. “We are excited to see this event and their involvement continue to grow.”

The speed portion of the competition will be contested on the renowned Mid-Ohio circuit using two specially designed tests. A cornering competition will have entrants perform a timed run on a series of difficult turns; while the stoplight competition will have entrants accelerate and stop within a specified area.

The appearance of contestants’ vehicles will be carefully analyzed on a number of attributes using the state-of-the-art Speed Judge system, which grades participants on the quality of the paintwork, distinctiveness of exterior and interior modifications and in- car entertainment enhancements. Previous winners have gone on to receive exposure in
national tuner publications.

The Mobile Electronics Competition Association (MECA) will judge the sound
competition, which will allow entrants to test the limits of their vehicles’ audio system. Testing will be based on a multitude of factors, including sound pressure levels, clarity of audio and quality of installation. Entrants also will be able to compete in the Boom & Zoom contest that compares vehicles on their speed and audio capabilities.

In addition to the speed, style and sound competitions, the weekend will be filled with exciting additional activities, including a burnout contest, vendor midway, bikini and fashion show, and a neon and specialty lighting contest.

Several major manufacturers will host special events during the Unlimited Audio Accessories Triple Crown Tuner Challenge. Hyundai Motor America has selected the Tuner Challenge as the site of its annual Tiburon tuning enthusiast meet. The GM Small Car Bash will host a pre-meet and have a car corral at the event. Scion will host their Scion Exposed event during the weekend, during which 500 entrants will be able to camp, participate in a lap of the track, enter competitions and compete against one another in their own car show.

Tickets for the Unlimited Audio Accessories Triple Crown Tuner Challenge, which include admission to the EMCO Gears Classic presented by KeyBank, are available by calling 1-800-MID-OHIO or visiting www.midohio.com. Participants who are looking to showcase their vehicle in the Tuner Challenge or are interested in participating in the burnout contest or fashion show can register at the same toll-free number and website.

Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course is a 2.4-mile, 15-turn permanent road racing circuit in Lexington, Ohio. Located 60 miles north of Columbus and 75 miles south of Cleveland near Mansfield, the track has been called the most competitive in the U.S. and annually hosts a diversity of locally, regionally and nationally sanctioned racing events for amateur, club and professional riders and drivers.

SPECIAL OFFER TO Temple of VTEC Members:
Ever wonder what it would be like to race your Honda or Acura around a professional track? Honda is sponsoring a corporate high performance driving experience at the Mid-Ohio Driving School allowing the first 24 drivers who register for the Mid-Ohio Tuner Challenge the chance to take part. All you need is $25 to register for the event and of course your very own Honda Civic Si to show off! This event will feature the best tuner cars of the Midwest competing in driving, audio and show competitions throughout the weekend. The individual with the highest score in all three categories will be crowned King of the Streets. In addition, the event will showcase a burnout contest and several on-track activities. Activities get under way starting Friday June 23 and run through Sunday June 25.


To clarify, Honda is giving away 24 slots during a corporate track school day at Mid-Ohio (valued at $750 EACH!) for the first 24 TOV members who register for this event next weekend. This offer is now open to owners of any Honda or Acura model. The date of the track day is TBD. I have personally attended one of Mid-Ohio's corporate day school events and I can tell you that it's a top notch experience. For the class session, you will be provided with a track-prepped Acura TSX. Even if you're not interested in the "tuner scene", your $25 fee enables you to check out Hondas and Acuras battling with BMWs, Audis, Mercedes, Nissan, Mazdas, Subarus, Minis, Chevys, Fords and others during the Grand Am Cup races that are taking place over the weekend. http://www.midohio.com/school.aspx
