NOPI Cancels Remaining 2008 Motorsports Activities

Automobile Staff

Wave bye-bye to the scantily-clad women.; The parts firm-turned-promoter of tuner car shows, drifting championships - and yes, notorious bikini contests - has suspended all events for the remainder of 2008.

Following a disappointing spring season, the entire NOPI organization is undergoing a complete restructuring.; Poor weather at several early events, coupled with a weak U.S. economy, was reportedly enough to keep spectators - and their money - away from NOPI's shows. Although the company is working with racers and sponsors to move forward, we expect any future NOPI schedules or events to be severely downsized. Source:; NOPI
