    Hi All,

    I'm just trying to gauge interest to see whether there are any members who would be interested in attending Japfest at Silverstone on 6th May if a club stand were to be organised? There will also be track time available for those that wish.

    For those are unaware this will clash with the Donington Historic which is happening on the same weekend. If interested please copy and paste to add your name to the list below. (I'd appreciate it if you would only add your name if seriously interested so I can gauge whether or not its worth trying to organise)

    Any more takers? it seems a bit sad we can't manage to get at least 5 names down to attend as a club even with another event the same weekend...

    I'll likely be getting in touch with the Nissansportz club to combine forces.

    I will be going in my slicktop but as I will be out on track I will just park in the trackday paddock which in pretty convenient to get to the track entry point.
    I have been on club stands before at Japfest but what has happened in the past is when cars leave to go on track someone else parks in the space so when you return you dont get the space back.

    I went to Japfest a couple of years ago, and while i enjoyed the day out, i wasnt overly taken by it.

    That said, Im considering Donington on the Saturday, as ive never been and it looks very good.
    So I would pretty much be driving past Silverstone on the way home, and i could stay at a B&B on Saturday night somewhere convenient :D

    What are the ticket prices? theyre not showing on the website yet.

    No worries, would be good to put a face to a name if your around though :thumbs:

    Done :thumbs:

    No worries Paul, thought I should repay the favour and cross over to your neck of the woods for a change ;) I'm sure we'll liase to sort details.

    Japfest is a very different event and very much for heavily modified JDM cars, the 90's in particular. It depends on what floats your boat tbh.

    I went to Donington last year for the first time and it was great fun, I would highly recommend it for the social scene if nothing else. Members usually stay local and make an evening of it which was good fun, despite my tiredness and alcohol intake taking me out far too early. I'm planning on doing both myself this year.

    Tickets should be released this month so we'll find out shortly and organise from there.

    Current list is per below subject to more confirmations... It looks like we'll be doing a combined stand with the NissanSportz club as well which will be nice to get an eclectic mix of cars and get the numbers up to represent the marque.

    Still torn between doing Donny on the Saturday & Silverstone on the Sunday or just do Japfest 2 at Donny in June.

    Never been to Silverstone though so am minded towards giving that a go. What is it like for places to stay nearby?

    Completely your choice, just depends what your more interested in era wise. Accommodation wise I've always driven up so couldn't comment albeit there's plenty of places around due to the big events that go on there.

    Personally I'm thinking of staying local to Donington on the Saturday night with the club to be sociable and then make the hours drive South to Silverstone on he SUnday morning.

    Great, will be good to see some cars out on track.

    It looks like between the two clubs we're up to 10 at the minute. It would be great to have some more members from the Z club representing :thumbs:

    Sorry chaps even though Silverstone is just down the road from my place I'll be at Donny for the gathering that weekend as I much prefer the old classics to hot hatches and the like :smoke:

    Thinking about doing Donington (prob on the sat.)
    Having never been what's the score with parking up with the Z ?
    Assume just park up in the designated classic car park?
