Japfest UK - Silverstone, England - Part 1

On 30th of April I headed to the Silverstone motor racing circuit (The home of the British GP of course) for the Japfest show. Originally held at Castlecombe circuit in the past this was the first time I had been to the Silverstone and i was surprised how big it was. Lots of variety of Japanese metal on the display plus tracktime and a live drift competition.

Anyway on with a selection of pictures from the day...

The classic original Civic Type-R,  the import only EK9

Work in progress mk2 MX5 with some JDM style touches

 Nissan Silvia looking good

Ambassador, your Nissan Fuga is ready

R33 Skyline get a bit of stick but a GTR is still a GTR

You would still move over if you saw that view in your rear mirror

Not something you see everyday.  A Nissan S13 with a Datsun 280Z front

with some rare Nismo wheels

Next we have few awesome cars from the Studio 448 stand of various marques. I'll be honest I did miss out a few cars as the stand was pretty busy and I couldn't a clean shot. I did come back later on and most had already gone home :( 

24K carat magic, Ben Parker's Honda NSX
