250bhp+ EK Civic on track at Japfest 2011
My Honda Civic on Castle Combe track at Japfest 2011.
255bhp / 980kg
Having some slight hesitation in lower gears after cornering, but overall
quite happy with the performance. It was a fun day!

Subaru R-STi - JDM vs USDM: A Friendly Rivalry -- /TUNED
In the US, we never got the best Subaru of them all, the first generation
WRX coupe, getting stuck with the fun-but-not-fast 2.5RS version. One of
the more popular upgrades for those cars is the "R-STi" drivetrain swap. In
the season premiere of Tuned, we look at two approaches: the USDM
drivetrain swap, and the JDM drivetrain swap. Which is better? You decide.
2015 Subaru WRX STI: The Daily Driver Rally Car Returns! - Ignition Ep. 107
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the latest generation of the
perennial rally car favorite: The 2015 Subaru WRX STI. Much like the new
WRX, this STI has an entirely new and significantly stiffer body structure,
but unlike the WRX, it still uses the same 305 horsepower 2.5-liter turbocharged flat-four that's powered the car
since 2008. Our introduction to the car occurs at the press launch at Mazda
Raceway Laguna Seca. From there, we test the STI to see the performance
improvements and drive it on one of our favorite mountain roads. How does
the new STI stack up? Stay tuned to find out.
Ignition appears every other Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel.

Japfest 2011 Car Show - Castle Combe Circuit
Performance Direct Insurance were amongst the many exhibitors supporting
the Japfest 2011 Car Show at Castle Combe Circuit, Chippenham on May 14th
2011. The Performance Direct stand featured a brand spanking Nissan R35
GTR and a modified R34 for comparison. The cars were adorned by the two
sexy Performance Direct Promo Girls Hannah Shine and Faye Evette. The
girls created quite a stir amongst the show which was attended by hundreds
of exhibitors and an estimated 16,000 visitors - most of which it seemed
had their photo taken with the girls!
For track action there were drifting displays run by Maxxis Drift
Championships with the likes of Japspeed, Driftworks, JDM Garage and Garage
D all getting involved. Passenger rides were available with pro-drivers
driving the BTCC 2004 Team Dynamics Honda Civics for a thrilling trip
around the historic racing circuit. And many a Japfest go-er took their own
cars round for a couple of laps.
The mass of static displays increased once again this year with the finest
Japanese Performance tuned cars from across the UK being displayed
alongside many club displays showing some of the greatest original and
modified examples of Japanese motoring. Jap Modified Performance Cars such
as Subaru Impreza, Nissan's from the 200sx, 300zx, 350z right up to
Skylines, R33, R34 & R35 GT-R. Alongside were Mazda RX-8's, MX5's, Honda
Civic Type-R's, s2000's, Toyota Supra's and MR2's, GTO's, FTO's and of
course, no Japanese tuning show would be complete without a more than just
a few Mitsubishi Evo's. These well-modded cars sat next to more unusual
examples such as the Nissan Be-1.
