Having one huge event is generally enough for most event organisers but Japfest is simply so big across Europe it needs a second event…We went to Donnington over the weekend to see what was going on at the flagship Japanese Motor Show – Japfest 2.

A look I’m used to seeing on the Euro cars but, and maybe slightly naïve of me but didn’t expect quite so many beautifully stanced Jap cars:10426273_10152615896346070_5858588813596480675_n10612610_542347855867457_6868392231204615453_njtyjtyjty610374853_10152615869446070_1744881237342316342_n

Aero was the word when the Time attack weapons came into sight. Every time I see these cars on track I can’t help thinking how aggressive they look – these are Serious cars!

A special mention for Customer and friend of Sky Insurance – Amy Slade’s famous Clarion sponsored and awesome Nissan 350z was on show of course and looking as immaculate as ever!

There were of course a couple of other very nice Zed Cars… (when I say a couple I obviously mean an awful lot!)

I’m quite a big fan of all things a bit OTT too, nothing quite like unique and extreme styling, Rocket Bunny haven’t got anything on this lot…well Ok they do have some arches on the Scooby.

Much like the Mustang on show at Ford Fair this year, there had to a show stopper here and whilst there are a handful of potentials there was absolutely no question of doubt that this classic Skyline, with the rich heritage that followed caused a stir. Sensational condition of such an iconic car…I wonder where we would be without it.

Would sir like a bit more Skyline with that Errr Skyline…

And as if that wasn’t enough, they bought the Drifters down! I simply can’t get enough of this lot and seeing them compete in the Maxxis British Drift Championship is always a great day out but there is something about the car show demonstrations that never ceases to make me smile…

I can see why they run two events now!
