Over on the Live Stage, legend DJ Richie Don, provided us with the perfect soundtrack for JapShow, keeping us entertained over in the Show Paddock all day. We witnessed a Jaw - dropping show over in the Live Action Arena with gravity defying tricks from Broke FMX and fantastic drifting displays from Team Maximum Lock, not forgetting as the sideways adrenaline filled fun over in the drift arena!
We hope you all had your cameras at the ready as Martin Hill teared down the track in 5.8566 at an incredible 276 mph in FireForce 5, The Jet Dragster!

We would like to say a big thank you to all the clubs for their continued support each year - we were in awe at the fantastic Japanese machinery on display!
