ATLANTA/MINNEAPOLIS — High Octane Events and Garage Lifestyle Inc, respective owners of the Caffeine & Octane and AutoMotorPlex Brands, are collaborating to bring unique vehicle enthusiast original content to the Caffeine & Octane TV show on NBC Sports Network. As part of the collaborative agreement, Minneapolis will become a second location for the Caffeine & Octane events to generate even greater volume of mesmerizing, genuine, and original content for automotive enthusiasts worldwide.
Caffeine & Octane, North America’s Largest Monthly Car Show in Atlanta, GA, hosts monthly shows that attract over 2000 vehicles and 15,000 fans while also filming and broadcasting a TV series to NBCSN/NBC Universal. Bruce Piefke, CEO and owner of High Octane Events, said, “We are proud to announce our only authorized brand extension of Caffeine and Octane with a second show location at the AutoMotorPlex Campus in Minneapolis, MN”.
The AutoMotorPlex, North America’s Largest Private Luxury Garage Condominium Community with several locations, will be adopting the Caffeine & Octane event name for its monthly car shows that take place on the 2nd Saturday of each month. The AutoMotorPlex is recognized as the industry leader for its concept of the “Country Club for Vehicle Enthusiasts ” and has opened its newest location in Medina, Minnesota. This location will feature 180 unique private garages surrounding a central 4-acre green space specifically designed to host car shows and create GarageLife™ for the larger community.
The two companies are collaborating as industry leaders in the automotive enthusiast lifestyle, bringing their vast depth of content to the spotlight. “The synergy is strong and we have complementary businesses, says Bruno Silikowski, founder of the AutoMotorPlex. This will be another industry first as well as an opportunity to do something bigger together. …Providing even more meaningful content for enthusiasts around the globe.”
As part of the alliance, High Octane Events will capture the country club setting of the AutoMotorPlex Ultimate Private Garages and the collections within the campus into the TV shows episodes of Caffeine & Octane and Caffeine & Exotics. The private garages range from 1,500 to over 6,400 square feet in size, all finished and packed with cars in ways that show the individual members’ interest, passion and lifestyle.
Both companies strongly believe this will yield even more enjoyment to people attending the events and the viewing audience, as well as a strong impact for their sponsors.
Bruce Piefke said “In meeting Silikowski and touring two AutoMotorPlex complexes, we had barely enough time to see maybe even 10% of unique garage condos, however, even that was enough to realize the synergy. My vision has been to build the best and largest car show, now we will have a new component for the show. What’s in your garage.”
The AutoMotorPlex will rename its monthly 2nd Saturday morning car show Caffeine & Octane starting April 2019. The events at both locations are filmed live and showcase peoples’ vehicle passions, the stories behind them, and the private spaces they built to enjoy them all year round. All of the filmings will be done live, free of any fabricated drama, real people with real passion sharing what they love doing, all things automotive.
We need your help to make this show happen. All volunteers get a Caffeine & Octane t-shirt and hat.
