Japfest @ The Rock

The day had finally come for the very 1st Japfest ever to hit South Africa….. emotions where running high from stressing like your final exam to happiness & joy when you got to drive your dads car for the 1st time.

There had gone a lot of planning a dedication into this event from the Fueltopia SA members side and let’s not forget the help and advice we got from the one and only James aka Jimmydramma.

The evening of the 19th was like Christmas eve there was no chance in hell we were going to get any shut eye unless you pass out and I don’t know about the rest but I passes out at approx 01:30 and got up at 03:30 to get ready for Japfest baby!!!! 1st I had to get Zion to start had to jump her with Neo, then I was off to get Legend and the promo girls.

As the girls were getting ready and making themselves pretty myself, Wesley and Legend where loading Zion & Neo with everything we need but then we ran out of space just about to fall to my knees and cry I heard the rumble of a Jap motor with a cone… it was Captian to the rescue with Falkor!!!

Loaded and ready we hit the highway to hell well you can almost say so with all the road works going on!!! Finally we completed the journey to The Rock Raceway… adrenalin pumping high in all as we got there as we knew we had a long and busy day ahead of us and yes we got to spend the day with beautiful Jap cars what more could we ask for!!

We got to where we got told we can put up our stand and jumped right into it all hands aboard!! Thx again to all that helped with smiles all the way!!! Ones we were up and ready the boys started to wash their cars and the girl made sure we got fed thx to Chef La-Rochelle.

Unfortunately we got asked to move our stand, but we got to move to a better and more in ur face spot…hehehehe

Ready for the Jap crazed people we heard the sweet symphony of Jap motors convoy rolling in….. Beethoven himself could not compose such an awesome amazing sound like that!!! Ofcoarse the promo girls and camera man was at the gate to greet them with Fueltopia flyers and get a snap shot of all the sexy rides faces and yeah some of there sexy asses who can resist a R34’s yummy curves!!!

The other stands around us where: Max My Ride, Spares inc, Meguiars, Ernmore Graphics, NF Octane Boosters, Zoopedup & Turbo Direct

The day kicked off with all the Jap cars hitting the track for the parade lap!!! If you were not a Jap fan and you where there then what the hell where you doing there…lol well if you where one of the doubters I can bet my soul after seeing and hearing the beautiful Jap cars around that track you wanted to sell your current ride and get urself a Jap car!!! As we were going around the track there where two cars drifting in the middle of the track it was awesome I felt like the coolest dude under the sun in my Nissan!!!

Then it was time to see some drifting action from the Suicide crew.. wow that was stunning and made me want to try and get my FWD to do that…. My time will come…lol

After the awesome drift show Fueltopia got asked if our promo girls would like to be flag girls….if you have ever seen girls go craze at a shoe sale you have seen nothing yet.. all of them wanted to go at once!!! They got the opportunity to start the drags for the Minimoto (pockets bikes).

Mean while Captian took the rest of the girls and Legend the camera man and went to all the wicked rides to take some pic’s of them and ofcoarse with the hot Fueltopia girls and at the same time introduced them all to Fueltopia.

Going through the cars was breath taking, there where Honda’s, Nissan’s, Toyota’s, Subaru’s, Mitsubishi’s, Suzuki’s, Mazda’s and then some non Jap cars: Chev’s, Mini, Opel and VW’s

Next up was the gymkhana and wow what action went down on the track from standard rides to turbo’s boosting and tyres screaming Scoobies vs R34’s, Toyota vs Opel you name it it went down, and the promo girls where right in all the action starting the gymkhana and getting wacked by the sun.

Finally it was time for the 200M drags!!!! First there was some free runs so all could get their cars tuned and comfortable with their surrounding!!! Fueltopia got asked to start the drags and mine dream came true I also got to go down to the strip and push the button for the lights…lol one lined the cars up and the other controlled the lights. Some awesome races went down many was head to head till the end and if it did not end in a tie it was won by inches but like a very cool dude from a kick ass movie ones said “ does not matter if you win by a mile or and inch wining is winning”

We at Fueltopia would just like to say thanks to the 200sx club and all that was involved making this day a great success and letting Fueltopia be part of it and it all was for a great cause but next year we will go bigger and better.

Thanks again to all the members that came out to help and the promo girls, sorry I’m not mentioning names as I’m scared I leave one out and get beaten up for it…lol But I must say a BIG THANKS TO LEGEND AKA Matthew for taking all the awesome pic's for us.. ur pic and angels are just getting better and better!!!

Also a big thanks to E TV & Max My Ride Magazine for covering the event.

There will still be a blog on the results of the events and a few blogs of the drivers profiles so keep your eyes peeled!!!!

" Ready for the Jap crazed people we heard the sweet symphony of Jap motors convoy rolling in....Beethoven himself could not compose such an awesome sound like that." I guess you had to be there.
