We look ahead to what you can expect at the inaugural Classic Japfest 2024 event following our biggest ever Japfest Silverstone show.

While Japfest Silverstone 2024 is over, the show must go on! New for 2024, we’re launching Classic Japfest, a car show dedicated to what is arguably the golden era of Japanese cars. And what better place to launch a new event than at the famous Goodwood Motor Circuit, a new venue for Fast Car Entertainment. The show takes place on October 6th and is part of a double-header for FCE as we host the German Car Festival on October 5th at Goodwood.

So what can you expect from the Classic Japfest 2024 show? Read on to find out.

What’s on at Classic Japfest 2024?

Car Club Displays & Awards

Much like Japfest Silverstone, car clubs will form the main feature of the event. Members of car clubs can display their vehicle as part of a club stand for show goers to ogle over, with club tickets available to purchase on the Classic Japfest website. Awards will be up for grabs for our clubs, and these include Best Car Club, Best Regional Car Club, Best One Make Car Club and Club Hero. Display cars must be 20 years or older (2004>).

If you aren’t part of a car club but still want to display your vehicle at the show, then you can still purchase a ticket and be part of our special display.

Retail Village

Aside from the car clubs, a bustling retail village will satisfy your need for new products, car parts, apparel and other merchandise. This is a great opportunity to speak directly to the people at the brands you know and love. You’ll have the opportunity to ask for help or advice on modifications or how to use a product and you may even pick yourself up a bargain!

Fast Car Display

Of course, it wouldn’t be a Fast Car Entertainment show without our own display now would it? We’ll be organising a display of past and future feature cars to showcase the best in classic Japanese car culture. Perhaps there may even be a Gran Turismo-type theme…
