Hi,

Mark here - Mod/ member at Sister club Pocuk - Pajero Owners club and MDocuk - Delica Owners Club and facebook groups etc salute

We (YD clubs) have been invited to have a club presence at JAE - Japanese Auto Extravaganza  http://www.japcarclub.org/ on 10-13 September 2015

Basically, it is a big social meet of car clubs for Jap cars - the clubs have a stand, show their vehicles, and socialise.

There are trade stands and entertainments and there are various  inter-club fun events as listed below :

- 5-A-Side Football – team event

JAE Go Karts – 2 person timed event

Tug of War – 8 man team event

Endurance – single entry timed event

Car Pull – single entry timed event

Joust – single person event

Bungee Run – single person event

Relay Race – 2 person team event

Food Eating – single person entry

Show and Shine

Pub Quiz (Kuiza)– 4 member team event

And, this year, their new site - Newark Showground has an off-road track, hence why we've been talking to the organisers!

They would like to see all the YD clubs - Pajero, Delica, Trooper, Land Cruiser, Suzuki attend.

I went to view the offroad track last week, along with another Pocuk club member Simon Hyde, who lives close by.

It is quite a small area, similar in size to the track that was at Abingdon, for those that remember - but no-where near the likes of Tong, Kirton, Frickley, Cowm, Drumclog etc etc

It is newbie friendly, and also has some "technical" sections more suited to experienced people, and there is a chance we can "modify" it a bit beforehand.

There is camping and entertainment on site, so it is literally a case of us turning up, and taking part, although, we will probably take a lead on running the 4wd track side of it. Costs to JAE are as here http://www.japcarclub.org/index.php/what-is-jae/entry-prices - basically, £35 a person, for 4 days, including camping.

They are still to get back to me about the insurance and liability cover for the track.

So, what do folks think, would you attend, for all the days, or just a couple - there are day entry prices as well, on the link above.

I think, this could be a good meet, with a lot of the infrastructure provided without a few of us having to sort this, and a chance for folks to have a go at offroad - even if they haven't before, with guidance from others, more experienced.

If I get a chance to modify the track beforehand, there will be some challenging areas, and we could potentially run some punch hunt type challenges on there.

It should be ideal for Newbies to test out their 4wd, ask questions and have a go, in a "safe non damaging" environment, with plenty of members on-hand  - very similar to how Abingdon used to be .

Hopefully, as the Showground seem very keen for us to go, we'll also be able to provide a few more challenging obstacles on the course for the more experienced . - They have got a machine there, so it may be that a few of us go there a couple of days before and "modify"

Last 4wd track I built from just a field, with a couple of ditches, and made axle twisters, deep holes, side angles, mounds etc etc

Richie managed to get stuck - park here  Laughing


and so did gareth
Rolling Eyes



here's a couple of videos from the Landy event they did at Newark a few years back - so you can see a couple of aspects of the terrain - the 4wd track is maybe 2 or 3 acres, with some muddy holes, flatlands, bankings etc and definitely OK for newbies and more seasoned people - of course, by the end of the weekend, newbies will be tackling all parts of it judging from how it has worked in the past  Wink

Please feedback what you think,

We can add to it all, with our own BBQ's etc etc

I've just put a bit of a landing page up for it with a more 4x4 feel - so let folks know about it  Very Happy -  www.jap4x4.co.uk a list of some of the activities at the bottom, then click through to the main JAE website via their logo.

Folks need to book up for this independantly - get a 4x4 "yellow diamond" ticket. But we can all camp / hang out in the same area - Caravans OK

Not long now - I am just sorting a date with the showground to go and "modify" the track a tad  Wink
