EVENT: Team Falken Drift Show Tuning World Bodensee

Posted by Fabian Linder on 27th May 2012

The Tuning World Bodensee is Germany’s biggest tuning convention, and for most of the car owners one of the most important season opening dates. For nine years its been held at the new convention center in Friedrichshafen, a small town on the lake constance. Propably due to it´s situation right on the Swiss border, and not far from France and Austria, it´s highly frequented. The past years there were over 80,000 visitors. For five years, Falken is responsible for the drifting area outside the halls; this year they brought the whole team to the lake constance.

Hours before the show the people already gathered at the fence

Early in the morning the playground was prepared, meanwhile the first fans gathered at the fence. Every show was very crowded, so it was hard to get a place in the first rows.

No driftshow without proper breakfast

Lars brought his new car, a nice R33

Lars Verbraeken brought his new R33 drift car, which he build for the countless drift shows he does, his new competition driftcar for the next years will be a E21! Sadly his R33 wasn´t mapped, so he remained in the pit.

Before the Falken drift show started, “Robeat” a german beatboxer performed and warmed up the crowd. He got nation wide recognition while participating in “germany got talend”

While the breaks we had some nice talks to Mr. "Robeat", a really down-to-earth person.
