Barbados well represented by "Street Vibes" at IASCA World Finals
Held in Charlotte, North Carolina on October 19-20

We at the Checkered Flag Car Shop are proud to announce that Ian "Street Vibes" Inniss made an impressive debut at the IASCA (International Auto Sound Challenge Association) World Finals which were held in Charlotte, North Carolina on October 19-20, 2002.

For the first time, the organisers of the event included a "Glow Off" Competition which was sponsored by STREET GLOW and it attracted approximately 25 cars. Our very own Ian "Street Vibes" Inniss smoked the competition and won the prize for THE BEST EXTERIOR and more importantly, THE BEST CAR ON SHOW.

Ian also competed in the Sound Quality segment of the Sound Off Competition and due to the protests from some competitors, he was moved from the Amateur Class which he has always competed in, to the Professional Class,which by the way, was the biggest and most competitive class at the event, simply because the other competitors felt that as an installer, that is where he should compete. Unfortunately, the Chief Judge ruled and agreed with the competitors so Ian was thrown to the wolves, a pack of 23 to be exact, and competed against fully sponsored cars, which were tuned by lap top computers!

As the day of judging progressed, we kept faith and presented the best possible 100% Bajan Product to the judges, who by the way, could not believe that the tiny island of Barbados could produce such a wicked piece of machinery, which was tuned by ear! The end result is now history. Our very own Ian "Street Vibes" Inniss is now ranked No.7 in the WORLD, in his class. Yes that's right, we have finally made an impression on the WORLD! Ian defeated cars that were fully sponsored and competitors who have been at this game for over 5 years and who have never been able to make it into the TOP 10 World Rankings. It is also interesting to note that the 6th, 7th and 8th placed competitors all had the same points but were separated by their scores from their overall presentation.

Although still in shock at his results, Ian is patiently awaiting the return of his car on Wednesday (Oct 30) and hopes to be able to make some necessary adjustments to his system in order to get it ready for the USAC,(United States Auto Sound Competition), World Finals in Kansas City on November 23-24, 2002.

Unfortunately, there are no funds available to make it to this event so far, so we are making a National Plea to all Bajans who would like to see Ian bring home Gold, to send in financial contributions to The Checkered Flag Car Shop or to Ian himself. Ian will be having a Celebration Lime at The Checkered Flag Car Shop on November 2, 2002 at 6.00 PM, so please come out and support our Champion.

Congratulations can be emailed to Ian at yellowdash@yahoo.com.
