Hmmm, not sure if there might be some confusion here.

We will be at JDM Combe, which replaced the "old" Japfest at that location, Castle Combe. Not sure if we will be doing Japfest (Donington) in 2020 yet?

Sorry Mark, yes I was confusing this with JDM which was Japfest before they decided they could get more money but taking it away from Castle Combe

Mark if enough people want to go, we will.
We went first year and it was poorly supported and the people who did go did not like it.

Mark, if you have been going to Silverstone and enjoyed it could you kindly give us some feedback as to what its like now please ?
All the best Clive

Yep feedback would be good...
I enjoyed it but oh my the same as JDM (original japfest) BUT 4 times as expensive.
You can get 4 people in a car into combe on a stand pass...thats great value...

Well, I havent been in Castle Combe JDM event, but I was in first Silverstone event. It was so massive that it was ridicilous. I think I managed go around about 3/5 of that area...

I can see that some people dont like Silverstone event. However, I had fun

For me was the first event in UK and so far good. So I dont have any to compare.
