So would anyone like to go to Japfest on Saturday 30th June 2018 :thumleft:

Japfest attracts over 20,000 visitors each year which is therefore one of the biggest car events of the year for Japanese Cars =D>

The minimum for a Club Stand is 5 cars, ideally looking for at least 15 cars or more to make it viable :thumleft:

It's highly unlikely we will be able to have Exclusive Track Session for RX-8OC as we would need at least 40 cars to fill it, but there is nothing stopping the individual booking various Sessions during the day instead :thumright:

Club Entry: From 06:30am onwards :arrow:

Cost will be as follows
Tickets : £15 - 16 Cars (16 Cars Paid)

Please post below if you would like to go and I will then arrange a Club Stand at the Show :thumleft:

Is the track definitely sessions, as opposed to open pit lane as it has been in the past? That would make/break it for me.

seen the mx5 lot posting about this event, they are tying to get the largest gathering of one type of car together on one stand for the show.

sounds like a good event. i'd be interested to go along to this one. :)

When I went with MX5Nutz, we won stand of the show.

Also when I went to the NEC for the classic stuff, we won car of the show also.

Not saying the two have some attribute in common (but hopefully people will draw that conclusion themselves :P ) and I haven't had much to do with them for a while but they have a big following.

on the car girl groups im in they are calling it an mx5 take over, so i imagine they are trying to brake previous records.

the good thing from them posting everywhere is i now know all about the show and it sounds quite a good one. something i'd definitely want to take my car too.

attending any car meets and events for us normally means 2 adults (myself and Sam) and normally +3 kids (most the time, never lucky enough to find babysitters)....which means 2 cars needed.

but we only own 1 Jap car so not sure how that will work with this event.

Bex, Japfest will only admit Jap cars to the show/stand area, but there is a FREE car park for non-Jap cars. A bit of a pain, but workable for you?
