Saturday was a big moment for me. I may work at Aatomotion and report from car shows and drift events but this was my first time attending Japfest in an actualy Japanese car. It was quite a relief to roll through Castle Combe and not be the only Audi in the village!

Japfest is Europe’s biggest Japanese car show with huge areas of club stands, a paddock full of trade stands and enough track action and drifting to de-laminate an entire branch of Kwik-Fit

The Drift Kings competition saw a mix of drifters battling each other and the changeable track conditions to win the £1000 prize. Here’s a taste of the action.
