The UK’S biggest Japanese car show is set to return for the second time later this month at the new venue of Rockingham Motor Speedway in Corby, Northamptonshire.
And in addition to all the best Japanese cars on display, visitors will also have the chance to drive their own cars on the track.
The original JapFest at Castle Combe earlier this year proved such a hit with petrolheads and their families that organisers decided to serve up a second helping of high octane action on Sunday, August 16.
As well as around 3,000 vehicles on show, the event is one of the most interactive car shows in the UK making it a big draw for fans of cars from all over the world.
On-track action will include live demos from the British Drift Championship, passenger rides with drifting pro-drivers and the opportunity for visitors to test their own cars on track.
Showgoers can also test the acceleration of their own car in a competitive 0-60 Sprint showdown – for £10, drivers will be given three officially timed runs, with prizes for the fastest cars in front, rear and all-wheel-drive categories.
Off the track, thousands of cars will be exhibited, representing all corners of the UK’s Japanese car scene, from classics through to the most extreme modified examples.
Further attractions will include a retail village with trade stands, autojumble and catering outlets.
Away from the cars, celebrity Beatboxers DUKE will be performing cover tracks to entertain the crowds, while there’ll also be a dedicated family area with kids entertainment including a bouncy castle, inflatable mega slide and obstacle course.
Visitors wishing to make a weekend of it will also be able to camp on the Saturday within the Rockingham complex.
Admission prices are £15 in advance (£20 on the day), public track time tickets are £35 per person for a 20-minute session and camping is £7 in advance (£10 on the day).
