I don’t think there’s ever been an all Jap fest hosted in Cape Town before. Sure there have been a few Germany VS Japan events which were more focused on drag racing, but not this. So when we heard about this event we were as you would expect… excited, being lover’s of all things hailing from Red Sun country. What made it more enticing was the fact that it wasn’t based on drags but rather a track day. Which led me to think back to watching those High Octane and Option DVD’s, seeing 1000HP Skylines ripping up the track… but this was South Africa and more specifically, Cape Town. So I knew it wasn’t going to be all that I had imagined, but hey, it was a great idea from Shiraz Bawa, organizer of the event. With this being the first one, let’s hope there’s more to come in the future, with whatever Skylines, RX7’s, Scoobies, Evo’s… and every other wet Japanese dream car there is out there to come play.

This old skool Toyota wagon was a gem to see. Love the rims too...

Another rare sight. It's great to see these cars come out of the wood works.

The Capestance boys were in strong attendance with some of Cape Town's hottest Civics.

The parking area started to fill up as cars parked according to their brand.

1PM saw the parade lap take place which started the days events.

This 1400 Champ bakkie just looks the business.

As usual Honda's were everywhere!

A subtle yet awesome looking 370Z also made an appearance.

Keegans Honda was voted the hottest Civic in Cape Town.

There were as many paparazzi as there were Honda's.

Drifting demo's took place at the oval by some of the Drift Africa and D1S guys.

Which later saw the track session start. Just like the number plate says, this supercharged Type R is indeed Bucwild!

Even an Atom (bomb) joined in on the fun, but he was in a league of his own.

Whats a Jap Fest day without some Scooby's...

The hottest Jap car on the scene now... the Toyota 86...X2, thanks to Market Toyota Athlone.

Another Type R screamer going crazy around the circuit.

All in all not a bad day. Let's hope the next one is even bigger.

Check out the rest of the pics below.
