'Allo All,

I hope you're all enjoying the lurrrrrrrrrrrrvly weather !

I spoke to the Ed of Jap Performance this morning and he's informed me of a "meet" that the mag are putting together and i said i'd share the info with you guys (more details in the next edition of the mag).

On July 7th, there is a "Street Machine" meet / "show" that is held in Hickstead. They hire some HUGE venue out and quarter fill it with Mental American engine'd beasts (supercharged V8's, etc). They book this venue completely....but only ever quarter fill it (this has been going on 10 years).

As Jap Performance are part of the same publishers / a sister magazine, they are getting in on the act, and are having a whole stack of Jap motors there as well, in another part of the venue.

I don't know the full ins and outs, but basically they are planning to have each owners club parked up together (so you get all the GTI-R's together, the Skylines together, Scoobs together, and so on...basically a big display by each club). I don't know if there is a cost or not...i'm sure this will all be revealed in the mag. The idea will be like bolney - turn up, park up and socialise. There is nowhere to be able to show what the cars are capable of doing unfortunately, so it really is basically a "show and shine" type event.

I told the Ed of the mag that i'd post something up and then give him some feedback in a while...so can you let me know what you think so that i can then let the man know.

This meet has nothing to do with me, but i said i would spread the word as it sounds like a wicked idea....by July the weather should be top notch so it should be a really good day. I'll certainly be getting nothing out of it.

Cheers all,
Daz

Cheers Paul mate.

I personally think this will make a superb meet - i will definately be going.

Fortunately for me i haven't got to organise anything this time, i just said i'd post a few messages out, get an idea of numbers showing interest and let him know what sort of reaction it's getting.

This will help him gauge the size of the "show". I know the mag will contain plenty of info over the coming months. From the Jap car point of view, it's in it's very early stages. They wanted to do this last year but the mag wasn't really big enough. They've "grown" now and feel they can put something on. I believe if this goes well then they'll put something bigger and better together next time (for example, there are no trade stands this year, but if things go well they'll look into that next time).

I don't know too much about it yet....but it does sound promising.

Anyway, the grasshopper meet comes first :)

Cheers,
Daz
