Some awesome pictures being shared in here :)

Was a brilliant turn out on the stand with an excellent standard of cars and was great to meet the fellow members I did, be it for the first time or the hundredth time, What a decent bunch you are. ;)

Can't wait for the next one!

I found the stand, polished Dave's wasp with some dribble then wandered more. Literally not an owner anywhere lol.

Was I the only one to find the whole event a bit disjointed and unorganised?

I found the event a bit cramped together really, they had the space to spread out a bit and give clubs stands a bit more room as I seen a few stands very cramped up and parked like Tescos car park

Didn't really get to speak to anyone but had a good day, It was nice to get some expensive ideas for the teg as well :p

Hopefully see you all again soon at another event! :)

Agree with the organisation/planning not being very good, I've been ford fair in the past and that seemed a lot more organised.

Nope you're not the only one.. think the organisation of japfest is getting worse year by year.. saw some clubstand all packed together.. so many space out there unused, and some staff didn't even know what was going on..

On of the main reasons I try and stay away from shows at Silverstone. Go back 10-12 years and they were the best around by far. Hardly any space not used and you could drive the whole circuit, 0-60 runs and a damn sight cheaper. :)

I didn't actually find the dc5 clubstand but looked like a good turnout from the pictures.

I was on the ek9.org clubstand in the morning and then had a few sessions on track in the evening.

Have you got that little 'drive by' clip of us on the way in to Japfest mate? You showed me it in the petrol station but I couldn't really hear it for the electrical cables buzzing overhead!! Thanks for letting me tag along your convoy and showing me the short cut as well!

It was my first show and although both my son and I enjoyed it I was expecting a little more from it..... Was a decent day, plenty of cars to look at but very little attractions other than the stalls of which the sticker ones were 5 deep most of the day!

Here we go, didn't make the stand but came up solo, took some footage on my iPhone. Next time I'll try make stand 👍 I used to organise some big club events years back. I'll try get one sorted

That would probably be because your on last years thread. Note it says Japfest 2017. :( see if you can cancel them (an email or phone call to the organisers would be spot on) and I'll point you in the right direction to book the correct tickets.
