You can now book and order all your power supplies for JAE as well as marquees, tables and chairs.
Power supplies are metered power or, where we cannot extend the tails that far, generators and include use of the power for the duration of the event (including fuel for generators)* Marquees are erected on site towards the back of your plot but starting at the midline so as to create a buffer between tents and cars. If you would like an alternative layout please email a plan after you have booked. The plan must clearly be marked with the plot numbers/names and also your club name
JAE is often the first to do many things. Where else have you been that did Dragon Boats - sorry but no lake at Newark. Other events may do tug-o-war etc. but we started it and still have the HKS sponsored JAE IKO. Japanese style Pub Quiz, Japanese food eating competition and much more besides.
But did you know JAE was the first event to offer Drift Taxis? Okay so we didn't call them that but cast your mind way back to the first year at Peterborough's East of England Showground. Long before Wicksteed Park and even before Mersea Island.
And now another first...................
JAE will be the first event to incorporate Learn to Drift rides. rather than just a five minute run as a passenger you will get the chance to take the wheel and learn how to drift! That before some final high speed laps at the hands of a professional. Okay so it's not for everyone and for that reason it will be on an adjacent runway to JAE away from the tents and camping. But we hope you like the new addition and will take up the chance and Learn to Drift.
Children from the age of 14 (with parents consent) can even have a go.
Booking will be at L2D's web shop or the JAE web shop and you can book and reserve a time long before you get to JAE. Look out for another announcement soon when bookings go online!
New for JAE 2015 is something you've not seen before at this show. For those who like their sport on the slightly mad side or prefer armchair participation then come and watch Crashman Stunts!
Crashman is about as raw as you can get - no safety nets, no roll cages, even the glass is still in the cars! All from standard vehicles, the only thing done is the airbag removed - for safety! To find out more about 'crazy' Dave Goodwin (we've met him and yep we can certify that!) check out his website. http://www.crashmanstunts.co.uk/#!about/c1x9v
The timetable will run throughout Saturday and Sunday. So for those not looking to get away on the last day there is plenty for you to see. Dave's displays will include some precision driving, and he may well try and beat his current World Record for precision parking. He's also undertaking some other activities such as a Rollover Crash, Sidewinder Crash and T-Bone Crash.
So, who's up for a passenger ride then?
