Performance Auto & Sound Magazine (PASMAG) is proud to announce its partnership with Importfest at Metro Toronto Convention Center (255 Front Street West, Toronto, Ontario M5V 2W6 CAN) on Saturday, August 6, 2016 @ 11:00 AM – 11:00 PM EDT. A Tuner Battlegrounds #TBGLIVE competition will be added to the event as a unique award category, similar to a “People’s Choice” award. Only pre-registered and confirmed competitors of the event are able to participate and join this online, bracket-style, head-to-head challenge on www.tunerbattlegrounds.com. Rather than PASMAG staff selecting the winner of the #TBGLIVE award category, this responsibility falls on YOU – the automotive enthusiasts, fans, show-goers and friends and family of the competitors and/or event. With a click of a button (voting is enabled via Facebook) or creating a new post with a designated hashtag (Instagram, Twitter), the audience will be able to vote and select their favorite competitor(s) from stage to stage (rounds). The winner of the #TBGLIVE award category receives an exclusive print feature in PASMAG! Read HERE for more details.
