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.

Monster Truck Crash - Slingshot Monster Truck Crashes at Modified Nationals 2011, Peterborough
Performance Direct were at Modified Nationals 2011 which is a fantastic
weekend packed full of modified motoring action. Alongside the static car
displays and stands such as the Performance Direct Insurance quote station
were other events such as the Wheel of Death, Bikini Babe Competition, and
Monster Truck demonstration.
The Slingshot Monster truck crashed on the third run that we were filming,
giving the crowd (and me) a bit of a shock as none of us were expecting to
see a monster truck crash. Although the driver was a bit dazed and was
attended by an ambulance he was okay and seemed to take it all in his
stride. In fact his reaction showed it to be a common occurrence for him!!
The Monster Truck itself did look a little bit the worst for wear though
and had spilled out it's methanol fuel which needed to be dealt with by
The Slingshot Monster truck is owned and run by Karl Swallow and is powered
by a 540 Merlin, est. 1800 horsepower with a COAN
2-Speed transmission. The 2004 Chevy Silverado body sits upona a chassis
built by Patrick Enterprises with suspension by RaceSource Stage 1 & 2.

Cars in Japan (Japanese Cars)
I took some videos of various Japanese cars in Tokyo, Japan.
Not too many tuner cars because they don't drive around mid-city where I
walked around most of the time.
I appologize its so shaky. Everything was handheld.
I did not add music so you may listen to your own music while watching.
