JapShow 2014 Report
After a wet start on early on Saturday morning the weather soon brightened up allowing a solid afternoon of on track Run What Ya Brung action. As the evening arrived the camp field was full of campers enjoying the last evening rays before heading over to Fuelers Bar. The Narni Shakers were on hand performing throughout the night alongside S.R.E with a mix of club classics, anthems and finishing with some Drum and Bass.
The morning started early with people queuing at the gates from 7am. Once the gates opened there was an incredible amount of high quality cars filling up the site.
The Autoglym Show& shine competition was run at an incredibly high standard as usual with a great variety of Japanese cars on display. As always with such high quality cars on show Judging was always going to be difficult. It proved to be with a number of disagreements between the judges.
Show & Shine
The Great weather on Sunday allowed for a largely uninterrupted RWYB Competition, Jap Drag Series and FWD Drag Series.
The Jap Drag series saw Jeff Ludgate crowned the winner of the 2nd round of the JDS Street competition. Having qualified in first place and winning his first round of eliminations Jeff earned a bye into the finals. Jeff managed to see off Andre Gysler with an 8.922s E.T @ 163.67mph.
The FWD Drag Series was also at Japshow, seeing Richard Batty increase his lead at the top of the Championship with a winning E.T of 9.193s @ 166.13mph.
The legendary Santa Pod strip was busy all day, the RWYB Competition saw some blistering times set across all classes. The RWYB winners are as follows:
The Podkhana track was well subscribed this year. The tight track proved a challenge to many but was a great leveller putting Imprezas against Protons and even a Subaru powered Corsa giving close racing every time. The final was Dramatic as Dmitrij Sribnyj nearly threw away a ten second lead at the final corner, he eventually finished the course with only a second in hand crowning him the Podkhana winner for 2014.
Thanks to everyone that came to Japshow 2014 we hope you had as much fun as we did! Don’t forget our next modified show Ultimate Street Car is fast approaching on the 1st- 3rd August for more info and tickets visit www.ultimatestreetcar.com.
