Brand new for 2018 the Sprint Test is coming to Japfest Silverstone!

This year Japfest Silverstone wants to test you and your car! Have you got the speed, the metal, the nerve to take on Japfest’s Sprint Test and win the title of fastest sprint of the day?

If you’re up for the challenge you won’t just walk away with eternal glory and a lifetime of bragging rights, you’ll also walk away with the Japfest 2018 Sprint Test trophy!

What’s it all about? It’s a simple test of flat line speed against fellow enthusiasts with the option of either three runs at £10, or if you want to keep trying your luck you can go for unlimited runs for just £20! The process is simple; line up, react quickest to the green light and then go on maximum attack to the finish line. Time is the only thing that matters here; if you’re the quickest, you win.

As we all know, acceleration from a standing start can be determined by a number of things, the biggest of which are the driven wheels. As a result, cars from each of the following categories FWD, RWD and 4WD will be split up in order to remove any unfair advantage.

Prizes will be dished out to the winners of each category across the day. Whether you’ve got a regular FWD hot-hatch with adequate power or a stripped out heavily modified GT-R, let’s see what you’ve got.

Tickets are selling fast and it’s looking like competition will be fierce. So bring your A-game and your quickest reactions; it’s going to be one hell of a ride!
