All the entrants who correctly choose the winner will be automatically entered into a random draw for a two-year lease on a 2014 Scion tC. 

 

The Polaris Music Prize, presented by Scion Canada, celebrates Canada’s music album of the year. The 2013 winner will be announced on September 23 at a gala event at The Carlu in Toronto. Shortly after that ceremony, Scion will hold the draw to determine the winner of the tC lease. You can submit your entry online anytime between August 7 and September 22. 

 

“Scion owners tend to be youthful, free-spirited people who are some of the most knowledgeable and enthusiastic supporters of cutting-edge music in this country,” said Cyril Dimitris, Director, Scion Canada. “It will be exciting for us to award a new music fan with a lease on a 2014 Scion tC – an outstanding car that fits with their lifestyle and through customization allows them to express their individuality.”

January 11-13, 2013 Chiba, Japan Makuhari Messe International Exhibition Hall 280,000 people, 800 cars, four days, 12 hours of sleep, one M6 convertible, 73 cans of Red Bull, and 3,000 shots later, the curtain, mercifully, fell on the 2013 Tokyo Auto Salon.

This year we had a ton of spectacles to witness inside and outside the Makuhari Messe in Chiba and an indication of how much bigger 2013 was, was in the opening of the North hall, which has remained…

Tokyo Auto Salon 2014: Mihama-ku, Chiba, Japan

The Tokyo Auto Salon 2014 was, at least for me, a great weekend filled with all manners of entertainment and spectacle.

The event takes place in a small, unassuming town outside of Frankfurt, Germany, named Limeshain. On any given day, it’s quiet and relatively uneventful, however, come the weekend of the Mammut, it all changes. The event draws hundreds of competitors from Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Czech Republic and,…
