Japfest 2

I returned to Donington Park again for the annual Japfest 2 show, which although is not as busy as Japfest 1, it never fails to disappoint with plenty of modified cars, drifting and track action taking place.

I didn’t get too many photos this time round as I was occupied with preparing the car for the track, and then it rained! but here’s a few cars which really stood out, especially the Team Lassa Tyres drift cars.

You can also watch my track action below, which was my third visit around Donington Park. This time as part of the 12:40 intermediate session. Unfortunately just as we began the sighting laps (not shown in video), it started to rain, so by the time the footage starts, the track is already damp and the rain just got heavier. The result was using the available time to not only get used to some handling changes on the car, but also find the grip, whilst driving on summer tyres. A couple of drivers didn’t adapt to the conditions and caused two separate red flag incidents, resulting in a slightly disappointing session on track.
