Here’s JAE in photos from how I seen the weekend. Or didnt as the case may be.
The JAE Weekender, Something we as a group have been going to for a long time now! First off joining other clubs such as the Honda Tech UK stand, The Lexus Owners club and then finally a few years ago; The first ‘Minty Fresh’ stand! Last year we went under the JDMtas name and we took home the gold for Best club of the show 2009!
We entered again this year under JDMtas and had a cracking time away! Spawned over several days down in sunny Kettering, We started our long wekeend off with an early morning wake up call on the Thursday. With about 30+ members we took sale to the roads and begun our 9 hours drive south!
The drive didnt take too long to be honest, or it didnt seem so. There was pretty much no break downs or problems other than some people falling behind, others getting off at the wrong services or missing their turn off and the likes, but it was rather smooth.
We got to JAE to find, There was no ‘Low Bawler Entrance’ which we had been promised from last year.. so the MX5 got stuck on several speed mountains, which was a shame and didnt do my sump any favours!
For those who didnt go, you missed a fair weekend – There cant be much more said about this event, other than JDMtas getting 2 black flags by the Friday… Sorry John! First being with Dan doing some sideways entrance as he finally got down.. the second with my reversing into a fellow club’s banner. Bad times, however bills were paid, hands were shook and we got on with the weekend! Was a cracker of a time!
This car right here did it for me – Once id seen this, All other cars just seemed tame. A Toyota Chaser JZX100. The only 100 at the show and i fell in love! Rest as you see it!…
