After JAE 2016 we asked you all to complete an online survey and one lucky person would win £500 worth of JAE Tickets and Merchandise.
The lucky winner's name was drawn at the recent JAE Car Club reps Meeting and the winner notified shortly after. It would be fair to say Andy Snowling did not believe us and thought his mates were just winding him up! Well, true to say Andy (and his mates) are now £500 happier thanks to JAE and will be at this year's bigger, better, louder, longer event!
But if you want to see what the winner looks like when he's at JAE, then here he is....with his mates!
Well done Andy and a HUGE thank you to everyone that took time out to complete the survey.
New for JAE 2017 - JAE Motorsport Paddock
Since 2005 when JAE was the first event in the UK to bring you Drift Taxis, we've always looked to add more for you to see and do. Now from 2017 we are combining the two - you can see and then find out how to do!
Across the UK there are many race series, events and competitions. For a large number of these they are either all-Japanese cars or have a significant Japanese presence. If you have always wanted to know more, see the cars, meet the drivers then JAE has the perfect solution. On display will be a range of Japanese Race Cars from UK series' and competitions. This is your chance to talk to the organisers, meet the drivers and find out more. If you want to have a go or learn how to compete they will help you. If you want to find out more, when they're racing and go watch they will have the answer. If all you want to do is look at the cars on show and all you want to do is take photos or, potentially, sit in the car, then that is all possible.
We are very excited about the Race Car Paddock, which will be indoors for JAE 2017. A chance to get up close and personal with some great race cars and know more about great Jap-car racing!
If you're looking for a club plot for 20 cars at this year's JAE you'll have to opt for a slightly bigger plot, of 25 cars. Which means more room for your mates, a few more cars, a bigger marquee and even more space for a barbecue! Yes, HANSHIN is sold out and all the plots full. JAE operates a first-come-first-served policy with bookings so, if you haven't booked yet, you'd better do it quickly! Plenty of other areas are selling out too so Hanshin won't be the last to be sold out.
If you're in doubt of what to book:
80 cars - WANGAN
50 cars - TATSUMI
30 cars - SHUTO
25 cars - KANETSU
12 cars - DAIKOKU, MAKUHARI, UMIHOTARU
