BLOX Racing commemorated its 10th Anniversary with a celebration at BLOX2013, the only major import car show event offered free to the public. For the past several years BLOX has held the open house meet at their HQ in Fremont, CA with the turnout growing bigger with each year’s event. By last year it was clear that the meet was outgrowing the venue, so for 2014 the organizers decided to change things up.
Actually BLOX Racing went one step further with the 2014 event they didn’t just change things up, they took the event to the next level, aiming to create one of the area’s new lifestyle automotive events. Thus BLOX Evolution was born.
The venue for BLOX Evolution was one of the more interesting car show locations we have ever seen – an old US Navy warehouse at Pier 70 in the Port of San Francisco. The venue really made for a cool atmosphere and there was definitely a lot more character than you’d find at your typical convention center or fairgrounds car show.
Arriving early to the big brick building on the Bay, we felt like we were going to some kind of secret underground race meeting.
The event was divided into two main areas. Outside would be the ‘meet’ area, set up in the spirit of the original open house events and inside the warehouse would be the ‘show’ area – where vehicles would be judged. In total 500 vehicles battled for street cred and a chance at a trophy, the competition gets tougher each year, and with no exception, this year’s independent panel of experienced judges worked very hard to determine the winners.
The annual event is a free annual car show event designed to build awareness for its high performance parts and accessories as well as generate funds for its charitable causes. EVOLUTION is created and organized by the staff and tireless volunteers of BLOX Racing. With sponsor support and vendor participation, the event grows larger every year and is deemed one of the must-attend events of the summer.
In the end these aren’t just cars; they are individual works of art, where no one is the same and where having all the original parts just means your car is a little bit boring. We can’t wait to see what BLOX does in 2015.
