#41

IMPORTANT!! Mellons for attention :sweat_smile: :watermelon::watermelon::watermelon::watermelon::watermelon::watermelon::watermelon:

ALL CLUB TICKET SALES HAVE NOW CLOSED: 104 Vehicle Display passes have been booked for the MX5 TAKEOVER stand at Japfest, Saturday 30th June, making this the largest MX5 only stand on the day! If you have Club flags, banners etc that you would like to display, don’t forget to bring them!!

If you have booked a combi-ticket for both Japfest and TRAX, you will be displaying with home team; Combustionpunks on Sunday. (Arranged by Kelsey Media, you don’t need to worry about your ticket or do anything yourself, but there will be no MX5 TAKEOVER stand at TRAX on Sunday.)

With so many cars to display, please aim for roughly 8am Saturday. 100+ MX5s need to be Parked and Displayed accordingly, and vehicle movement or ENTRY is prohibited by the venue after 9am for public safety reasons. No amount of beer or bribery will grant you access after this time! I Will be on site from 7am to organise drivers as they arrive.

Convoys will be updated in the PINNED POST of the favebook event linked below, as soon as information and details have been forwarded by other Club coordinators.

There will be more info and updates, please stay up to date for your best Japfest experience yet! :sunglasses:

Just remember that there are major Road works on junction 24/25 of the M1 so those travelling up or down on the Friday need to make allowances for the Friday traffic and possible delays.


#51

Anyone travelling south ? How about we meet up at Trowell services and trundle in together from there??


#52

I’ll be travelling down on the Friday, but probably during the day with the gazebos to get stuff set up ready for the evening :slight_smile:

TICKETS :face_with_monocle:

Will be emailed out ANY TIME this week for Japfest at Donington.

They are emailed to the address you entered when booking. (Find your confirmation email for peace of mind.)

They come direct from the venue and organisers, Kelsey Media.

Sit tight, no one has received their tickets yet. This is not unusual, happens every year. #DontStressIt

Will post up when I receive the tickets I have personally ordered. But you should start to see other people posting about theirs as they arrive via email :slight_smile:

Thank you!
