Maxxis supports 10th Japfest with ‘drift spectacular’
This weekend Castle Combe will host the tenth anniversary of Japfest, Europe’s biggest Japanese Car Show. On 12 May the Maxxis British Drift Championship will be the star attraction, with three extended track sessions, during which star drivers from all three classes will be demonstrating their skills and precision in a mass drift train. The title sponsor of the UK Drift series will be strongly represented at Japfest, with the Maxxis Babes joining its two sponsored drifting teams, Team Japspeed and SATS Motorsport.
Tyre manufacturer Maxxis says this year’s Japfest will surpass last year’s, when 97 clubs exhibiting over 3,000 cars packed into Castle Combe. The Power and Style Awards are back by popular demand, as are passenger rides in BTCC spec Honda Civics and Fast Car magazine’s Culture Corner in association with Maxxis, while visitors can join go-karting sessions or put their own car through its paces around the historic Castle Combe circuit.
Additionally the Maxxis Babes, along with their very own ‘BabeMobile’ whose design was created by a fan, will be posing for photos and handing out Maxxis car stickers. Drift cars competing in this year’s series will be on display in the drift paddock throughout the day.
