Japanese car culture is massive news in the UK, and there’s certainly no shortage of shows and events specifically tailored for JDM fanatics. One of the biggest (and longest-running) is Japshow @ Santa Pod, an event which happens both in June and October every year.
Centered around Santa Pod’s 1/4-mile dragstrip, Japshow brings together all aspects of Japanese car culture – from VIP and stanced saloons right through to drifting and Time Attack. There’s even a wide selection of classic motors including Datsun 240Zs and AE86 Corollas!
Whether you’re a Japanese car fan or not, you have to admire the dedication every owner has to their car and club. We spotted literally hundreds of Subaru Imprezas perfectly displayed together, all boasting slightly different modifications and styles, all united by the same passion towards the turbocharged super saloon.
As always Meguiar’s were on hand with our complete range of cleaning gear throughout the day, despite the typical British weather doing its best to disrupt the 1/4-mile action!
We’ll be heading to both the TR Register and Waxstock events later in the month, make sure you pop over and say hello if you’re attending.
