PLEASE… IF YOU ARE BOOKING MORE THAN 1 SHOW< KEEP THE PAYMENTS SEPERATE… ITS A BLOODY NIGHTMARE TO KEEP TRACK OF THIS STUFF! LET ALONE TRYING TO WORK OUT IN A MONTHS TIME WHO HAS PAID FOR WHAT!
Tickets are usually sent in a big bundle to me the week before the show, I then stuff a load of envelopes as quickly as possible and send them out to you guys, expect them the week before the show
So… still reading? good … here comes the longer version
For anyone who doesn’t know, Japfest is HUGE, Marketed as Europe’s biggest Japanese car show, it is hosted at Castle Coombe Race track. There is plenty to see and do at the show, there is always a MASSIVE amount of club stands to see, covering large surrounding areas. I think the venue is great, with the club stands in the grassy areas around the paddock and peripheral of the track, rather than being in the nearest carpark, it really feels like the club stands are a large part of the show.
Changes from previous years:-
Japfest is now under new Management, Future publishing are out… Kelsey Publishing are in. There has been quite a bit of nervousness around and about re this change… but if we wanna go, then we gotta deal with it.
Initial Price of ticket (before warchest and Admin) has increased, hence the increase in price.
In previous years we were able to send off a booking form early on with the majority of our numbers on there, then as the deadline approached, send in further booking forms to cover extra late comers etc. not this year!
This year they are only allowing 1 booking per club, so we need to get super organised and get all our numbers in and finalised. Anyone wanting to come after this date will have to hope people drop out and sell-on their pass.
