    So does this event really need an intro, but there is a lot of information so please read carefully …

    J.A.E is the ultimate social weekend for Japanese car owners, Japanese car clubs, tuners & traders. it takes place every year in early 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.

    JAE is the perfect place for like minded owners & 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 & with the growing interest in Japanese cars as both classics & 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 60s (& 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 & relax”!

    Since the first time JAE moved to WICKSTEED PARK, we helped a small Scottish car club out who were stranded as despite booking a club plot, there wasn’t one available ! So it was from this fateful day & every year since, Team Sushi & the GTROC have always had a joint stand at JAE. They are a great bunch of people, the best you can meet & get to know & have become family to most us. They own an array of fine Japanese machinery other than our own marquee & we are looking forward to seeing them soon.

    So … after reading all that and having a brain fart, read it a few more times and if you have any questions then please ask below or send me a PM. I would like to remind you to please only add your name once you have purchased your GTROC stand ticket which is in the GTROC Online Shop.
