Santa Pod JapShow Sunday 19th June

Santa Pod Presents The Jap Show on Sunday 19th June 2011

The JapShow is Santa Pod's start to the Japanese car-fan's season, and the official website has been updated  with the new look for 2011 and all the latest info on the forthcoming event.

The show contains all the unique elements that only a Santa Pod event can provide: namely the world-class dragstrip and associated track time and race classes.

The track will be open for both Run What Ya Brung and the Jap Drag Series, so spectators and participants are equally well catered for.

The Jap Drag Series will be on round 3 by the time the JapShow comes around, so the competition will be hotting up and drivers will really be getting to grips with their vehicles. Records seem to fall at every round, and even if they don't, expect to see some great racing.

In addition to the essential drag-strip focus, the JapShow has plenty going on away from the quarter-mile. The Autoglym Show Car Paddock is open for anyone that wants to take a more relaxed approach to the Japanese car scene.

The JapShow has always kept entry to the Show Car Paddock open to anyone who wants to show off their ride, and, spectators will see plenty of variety, from highly modified show-stoppers to detailed retros that deserve a closer look.

The JapShow also has a huge amount of hard-standing display space available to clubs, and there are always some excellent cars to be found in the club display areas too.

More tyre-tearing action can be had away from the track too, with a dedicated drift track offering passenger rides, a FREE handling track that is suitable for all cars no matter how big or small, and stunt shows by the world-famous Terry Grant.

New for 2011 is the London Rally School with 280bhp Subaru Imprezas on hand to give taster sessions in the passenger seat of some serious rally driving for just £10 per person.

On top of all that, there's still more, including traders, dyno for power and torque profiling, the famous 270mph Fireforce jet car, radio-controlled car track, catering and bar facilities.

There is also a normal Run What Ya Brung the day before, and weekend tickets are available with free camping and evening entertainment.
