(Photos): ONE BIG FAMILY: Over 200 cars turn up for FESTIVAL OF 86 in Sydney

Chief Engineer, Tetsuya Tada (Tada San) attended a massive, by far the largest, /AE86 owners meet (known as Festivalof86) in the Southern Hemisphere to date, held on Saturday the 10th of August in Sydney Australia, Toyota HQ, and together with four-time national rally champion Neal Bates and national champion Beau Yates made this a one unforgettable and a definite highlight of 2013 for the attendees.

There were LOTS of owners showing up with their rides (some even driving from Queensland/Victoria to be here) totaling over 200 Toyota /AE86 owners, as well as many other car enthusiasts.

According to Drive.com.au Tetsuya Tada was in Australia to introduce a new handling option upgrade that elevates the ‘s level of grip without ruining its fun-to-drive character; with new modifications to include a set of larger 18-inch forged alloy BBS fitted with specially developed Dunlop Direzza tyres and revised damper settings (read more here), but here at the event mainly to convey his thanks to all the 86 owners for making the car such a massive success, and to sign peoples car dashboards, items, etc during meet and greet. People were able to check out some cool 86 builds / engine , get 86 merchandise and the like. Overall a very enjoyable day was had by all.
