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.

Retro Japanese Display

There’s nothing better than an old Japanese classic, and this year, we are putting together some of the best examples of these iconic vehicles.

Giving us the chance to respect the cars that still look good all these years later.

Korean Korner Display

We thought it was about time to respect some of those Korean cars that aren’t usually accepted to display at Japfest but as of late, have well earned the credit to attend. Although not Japanese, these cars have become a real competitor for Japanese vehicles.

Maybe it’s time for a comparison of Japanese and Korean vehicles at Japfest 2022?

Japanese-Powered Wildcards Display

Yeah, yeah, we know they aren’t ‘Japanese’ models but these rides deserve some love, after all.. they are Japanese at heart!

With so many cars having Japanese swapped engines such as the RB26, 2JZ and more, this display is perfect to bring together some great examples of how it can be done well and a chance for those mechanics to show off their handy work!
