JAE is the ultimate social weekend for Japanese car owners, Japanese car clubs, tuners and traders.

JAE takes place every year in August/September and attracts over 3,000 Japanese cars to the show.

The four day weekend event is a family affair encouraging car clubs to mix and compete in a range of events and competitions.

For the casual visitor it is the largest gathering of purely Japanese cars in Europe and a chance to see some amazing cars and enjoy four days of fun at this ultimate social gathering.

You can find JAE at Peterborough Arena
East of England Showground, Peterborough, PE2 6XE

JAE is the perfect place for like minded owners and traders to meet up and enjoy what is the popular Japanese car culture, it has been previously quoted as "the perfect way to do business"

JAE began as a meeting of Datsun Z club members as far back as 1991 and with the growing interest in Japanese cars as both classics and modern super cars since that time, it has grown to the largest gathering of Japanese vehicles of all types in Europe and continues to grow steadily without forgetting its roots.

With everything from 60′s (and earlier) classic / retro machines to the latest electronically controlled supercars, the show has something for everyone throughout the weekend!

If you've never been to JAE it's simple: Turn up, park, camp (or book a local hotel), light the barbecue, sit back and relax


Who can attend?

The event is open to members of all Japanese car clubs or just private individuals.

As a visitor, please see the Event info page.

If you run a Japanese car club and wish to register your car club with JAE then please check out the Club Info page.

It will be fantastic to see your club there regardless of how big or small it is, we all have the same goal, the same love and that is Japanese cars.

Where to stay?

There is camping for the hardcore weekenders amongst us which is a very popular option with families as well as clubs and makes the whole event!
Public car parking for the day trippers is also available.

Tickets are available at the public gate all weekend, prices can be found in the Event Information page
