Castle Combe Circuit ready for Japanese car show

Castle Combe Circuit ready for Japanese car show

Castle Combe Circuit’s Japanese Car Fest, JDM Combe, on Saturday July 8th is a day for Japanese car enthusiasts – whether you are a Honda, Mazda, Nissan, Subaru, Suzuki, Toyota, Lexus, Mitsubishi, Diahatsu, or even Isuzu fan!

The latest name to commit to the event is performance and motorsport lubricants brand, Motul, which will apparently be bringing with it one of the UK’s foremost car YouTubers, Adam C.

Adam is known as a Japanese car enthusiast and owns two JDM cars (a machine that is made by a manufacturer that originates in Japan) himself. He will be bringing his own style – and apparently one of his JDM machines – to Castle Combe and will be found either on the Motul stand or collecting material for his YouTube channel. Find out which of Adam’s cars will be on display by popping by and, at the same time, check out which of Motul’s speciality lubricants is the right one for your JDM car.

The Motul with Adam C offering is, however, just one of many reasons why petrolheads should be making a beeline for Castle Combe Circuit on Saturday 8th July.

JDM Combe promises action on the track all day long. This will reportedly include three drifting demonstration sessions, where visitors will be able to see cars performing on (and beyond) their true limits of adhesion.

Those wanting to get on track themselves, will allegedly be able to do so and will have the choice of a slow parade session or one with no speed restrictions. Check the website for all the details.

Castle Combe Japanese event

The event is said to always attract a number of displays, both from individuals and from Car Clubs. This year is no exception. Japanese marque clubs and more all-encompassing Japanese and performance car clubs from all over the country – more than 150 in all – are said to be displaying cars at the event. These, along with individual cars on display, will mean that there will supposedly be hundreds of Japanese cars in the paddock and, no doubt, hundreds more in the car park!

Another of the highlights is bound to be the Show and Shine, which, again is sponsored by experts in car preparation, Bristol Detailing Supplies. Here, it is claimed visitors will find a host of well-prepared Japanese exotica, all competing for one of the awards. There are 25 finalists, and just about every Japanese marque is represented, which you can check out here.

Those looking to find parts, services or merchandise for their cars – Japanese or otherwise – will also have the opportunity by perusing everything on offer at the trade village and it is said that there will, of course, be food and drink to choose from at the concessions around the circuit.

JDM Combe claims to be one of the most popular of all of the Castle Combe action days, and advance ticket sales have apparently been strong, but admission on the day is still possible, and extra car display spaces have been made available at both the Chippenham Road and Tower sections of the venue. General admission tickets at the gate will cost £30.00, with visitors under 16 admitted for free when accompanied by an adult.
