Japfest wouldn’t be the same without the Show and Shine competition!

The competition gives those of you with a car that’s spotless the chance of a trophy, crowning you Show and Shine winner for Japfest Donington 2020. If you have a build that you’re wanting to showcase or a car that you’ve recently bought that you are super proud of then all you need to do is fill in the form to enter!

If you’re successful, we’ll be in touch and you’ll be one of just 20 cars sat proudly in our Show and Shine paddock, where one lucky owner will be crowned the Japfest Donington 2020 Show and Shine overall winner.

Retail Village

Do you need a part for your Japanese car? Chances are you will find it within the Japfest Retail Village!

Situated slap bang in the middle of the rip-roaring track action and thousands of club cars, the Retail Village is packed with everything and anything you could need for your car, from throttle bodies to wheels and camshafts to coil overs and everything in between!

In our Retail Village you’ll also find some of the leading names from the automotive industry showcasing their latest products and offering advice on your project, as well as exclusive discounts that are simply too good to miss!

Public Tracktime

Once again for Japfest, we are giving you the opportunity to drive around the Donington Circuit. You can take your car out on track in our 20 minute ‘Jap Only’ sessions for only £30.

We have Novice, Intermediate and Advanced level sessions to suit all abilities, so anyone can get out on the tarmac.

Passenger Tickets: Why not take a friend out on track with you in your car? Passenger tickets will be available to purchase in advance or on the day for just £10.

Please note all track sessions are for Japanese cars only. We will exercise the right to refuse entry to any other vehicles. You will also need a valid entry ticket for the show and to bring the paper section which accompanies your driving licence. This can be downloaded from the DVLA website and brought with you . No refunds will be given if you do not provide the correct documentation. Minimum age for passengers wanting to go on track is 18 years.

Special Display

Not part of a club but would still love to display your car? Well panic not!

We offer drivers who aren’t part of a club the opportunity to display their car within the Special Display area at the event which will be located within the circuit. As long as your car is Japanese, you will be guaranteed a spot within the Special Display area.

To purchase the display pass, click here and select the option to display your car for just £3.

As well as getting to show off your car to the thousands of visitors, you also get early access to beat the queues and get settled in for the show.
