No More NOPI Nationals?
Wave bye-bye to the scantily-clad women.; The parts firm-turned-promoter of tuner car shows, drifting championships – and yes, notorious bikini contests – has suspended all events for the remainder of 2008.
Following a disappointing spring season, the entire NOPI organization is undergoing a complete restructuring.; Poor weather at several early events, coupled with a weak U.S. economy, was reportedly enough to keep spectators – and their money – away from NOPI’s shows.
Although the company is working with racers and sponsors to move forward, we expect any future NOPI schedules or events to be severely downsized.
