JAPFEST SILVERSTONE SUN 23RD APRIL 2023

Entry for club cars starts at 7am so we can always hang around services for a bit longer. Plus there is usually  JDM themed traffic on route. I'm a bit of an early freak so like getting to anything in life a bit early to set up and avoid stress lol

If anyone else is coming down the M1, me and my mate will probably make a stop at Leicester Forest East Services at about 6:45, which is about 45 mins away from Silverstone.

Can all members who are going on track please make themselves known to me when you arrive in the morning so I can make sure you are in a place on the stand that enables you to get out and drive to the circuit!!!

Could be good news , grass could get messy tomorrow! 

Yeah very true, wouldn't mind the stand being a bit more central too.

 Cheers for the offer Andy, but I think I’ll just make my way down a bit later on than that.

Firstly big thanks to Andy James for organising the clubs event today at Japfest great day out and who would have thought some of us would arrive home sunburnt given the totally inaccurate weather forecast and that was the BBC not Fox News. Finally on leaving the circuit at the last roundabout before the motorway one of the large group at the side shouted “nice one grandad” now I am not pointing fingers but Davey had managed to get ahead of me on the service road and it did sound like a Brummie accent 🤷‍♂️😂

Fantastic turnout today guys and the weather was unusually kind!
Special thanks to Buster and Andy Muxlow for assisting in the usual 2 hour ritual of sorting out the stand/ parking arrangements which I cannot possibly do on my own.
I’m still a little disappointed with our location today considering how many one make cars we bring to the party each year, but hopefully next year a better pitch will be secured. Looking forward to greater numbers next year!

Thanks again @andy james once again for organising this and getting the crew together. I’m glad I couldn’t resist cleaning my car even though I said I wouldn’t,  because it obviously made the sun come out. As for being sun burnt I learnt my lesson years ago and always keep plenty in stock as @Andy_Muxlow refers to me as the sun cream dealer ! 🤣

Lovely to catch up with you guys and huge thank you to @andy james for getting this put together. With the construction going on at the venue, the early ticket closure, then the last minute forecast it all looked against us however worked out well in the end. 

 

Our next club gathering don't forget is end of next month, no public and no tickets needed 😁

Was so shattered on the day I had to take a 30min nap at the service station on my return journey.

Only met @AndyJames once before and that was Japfest '22!

Cheers again Andy and all the other members who joined our stand.

 

I’m absolutely shattered also ! must be getting old ! Can we ask the organisers to do it on a Saturday next year so I can have Sunday to recover ! 🤣

Awesome day, with awesome people! Thanks again @andy james for organising this. Always a great day out. The weather was kind to us also. I can confirm I also got sunburn on my delicate bonce.. 🤣 Although I was offered sun cream from my dealer... @SHEZZA but I turned it down like a silly boy. 🤣
