London, 6 April 2004 – Hot Import Nights, America’s most popular modified car event is set to invade the UK this September. Event production company R-Nation in association with US promoters Vision Entertainment, will bring Hot Import Nights UK to London’s Earls Court on 11 September 2004.

“Hot Import Nights is the most successful tuning show series in North America. The Hot Import Nights events deliver a tempting mix of outrageous modded motors, sexy girls and cutting edge music in a unique nightclub environment,” Said Henry Camilleri, co-founder of R-Nation. “By tapping into the UK’s underground modding and music scenes Hot Import Nights UK will be Europe’s wildest car tuning event.”

On the evening of 11 September, 2004, Earls Court will be transformed into Europe’s funkiest car show and dance club. R-Nation will use its close ties with the UK’s music scene and top car tuners to bring a mix of the latest DJs and artists from the world of Dance, R&B and Hip Hop under the same roof as the UK’s premier league modified cars. Battling MCs, breakdancers, glamour models and exotic dancers will also be on hand to spice up the night even further. The event will be filmed for TV broadcast.

Hot Import Nights is all about the cars. Over 500 of Britain’s finest modified motors will be pre-entered to compete for cash prizes and outrageous trophies. The competition for the UK’s top tuners, over multiple classes, will be judged by America’s National Custom Car Association (NCCA) judges, who will be exclusively flown in for this event from the USA.

R-Nation will be making further announcements concerning major talent and media partnerships on an ongoing basis. Further information for the first Hot Import Nights UK event will be available shortly at
