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.
