What's on 2018

Photography-UK will once again be trading at the show!

Torque GT are back in full force for Japfest 2018 with an unmissable display that will literally blow the minds of even the most hardcore JDM fans!
To celebrate 17 years of Torque GT you’ll be able to get up close with some of the rarest and most iconic Japanese cars ever produced. From a GTR Nur edition and RX7 Spirit R to an Impreza RA-R and Honda NSX-R there will be a stunning collection of cars to feast your eyes upon.

Last year we (reluctantly) gave away a Honda S2000 GT to one lucky winner this year we are giving away the Nissan 350Z to one lucky showgoer!

Have you ever dreamed of your car appearing on the cover of your favourite magazine? At Japfest, Blue Pig Photography are offering you the chance to make that dream come true with an exclusive, personalised cover shoot of your car ON the world famous Silverstone circuit!!

Fancy yourself as an F1 pit lane mechanic? Reckon you can change a wheel as quick as those mechanics? This year we’re teaming up with Davanti Tyres for the Davanti Tyre Challenge  to find out who can change two wheels the quickest.

The awesome Drift Kings competition is back for 2018! Drift Kings is a drifting competition with some of Europe’s top drift cars and drivers competing in an all out drift war on the Silverstone circuit for a ‘winner takes all’ prize of £1000, a trophy and the glory of winning Drift Kings 2018! 

The Japfest Show & Shine competition brings together the best examples of the UK Japanese scene to do battle for eternal glory and the coveted Show & Shine crown. The Show & Shine is kindly sponsored in 2018 by Phat Detailing. From an impeccably-detailed rebuild, quarter-mile demon or highly-tuned track weapon – cars of all ages, models and styles will be on display in the exclusive paddock! 

Brand New for 2018 we are delighted to bring the TurboSmart Sprint Test to Japfest! 

Got the speed? Got the stamina? Got the nerve?

Clubs have and will always be at the very heart of Japfest and 2018 is no different! 

If you’re not part of a club and have a Japanese car, you can still be part of the show!

For just £2 extra you can purchase an Individual Display add on to your ticket which allows you display your car in our dedicated Non-Club Paddock Area.

You can not only beat the traffic with access to the event hours before the public, but your individual passes also provide exclusive access to display your car.
