After a grand 20th year celebration in 2011, the Philippines' oldest-running car show is returning to its rightful home this year as Tradeshow International and Phoenix Petroleum Philippines set the stage for the 21st Trans Sport Show on April 18 to 22, 2012 at the Megatrade Hall in SM Megamall.
Staying true to its principle of being a “Car Show for Enthusiasts by Enthusiasts,” the organizers of the Trans Sport Show raised the bar by choosing only the best of the best cars in its competition. The 21st Phoenix Trans Sport Show Cup will have a total of 15 categories, with two major awards - Best of Show Nostalgic (vintage and classic cars) and Best of Show Contemporary (new cars) - judged by a panel that includes veteran Osamu Hasegawa with Eddie Salonga, Boyer Kalugdan, John Escobar, Nilo Escalona, Pepon Marave, and George Apacible.
