It’s Japfest Rock This Weekend!

A special celebration to mark a million Mazda MX-5s, and live passenger drift rides will be among the treats in store for fans of Japanese performance cars at this weekend’s Japfest Rock!


The second event in the Japfest series, which takes place at Rockingham Motor Speedway in Corby, Northants, promises an octane-fuelled day of track and static action, as well as some unique features that build on the show’s success, after almost 20,000 fans turned up for the first Japfest show at Silverstone in April.


The gates will be open from Saturday afternoon, with camping and live entertainment at the centrally-located circuit. A disco featuring three professional DJs will run from 8pm until midnight on the Saturday evening, playing everything from funk to garage and house to urban.


On the Sunday, one of the main attractions will be a celebratory 40 car display from the Mazda MX-5 Owners Club. On 22 April 2016, Mazda produced the 1,000,000th Mazda MX-5 and the MX5OC will have 10 cars from each of the two-seater sports car’s generations on show. Established in 1994, the MX-5 Owners Club has is now the world’s largest owners club for drivers and enthusiasts of the best-selling sports car, with over 6,500 members and a fantastic range of benefits, services, events and offers.


Discounted advanced entry tickets are still available for a very limited time, available from the show’s official website at
