It is official and confirmed by Ken Miyoshi, founder of Mainstream and creator of Import Showoff shows, that Team Hybrid has set and now, holds the most trophies won by a team @ a single event. Ken has been doing Import Showoffs for the last 13 years and no team has ever won 15 trophies which includes a team trophy too. Previously, the team that held the most trophies won was Art n Motion @ 11 trophies.
