20/06/2012 - JDM Allstars Birmingham Round 1 Report

A very damp track greeted us on arrival at Birmingham City Speedway, although within a coupe hours of tyre abuse warmed up.

Consistant runs in qualifying meant Walton brought home a 5th place position for the Top 16 battles.

A very tight fight between Walton and Luke Fink in the Top 4, with the judges putting Fink through to the finals. We move on to battle Juha Rintanen and his S14 in the 3rd/4th play offs.

Juha's car from the start pulls ahead with its near on 200 horsepower advantage, and takes the win.

We would like to thank everyone who helped and supported us at the event. We look forward to seeing more of you at Round 2 in Wimbledon.

19/05/2011 - JPP Subaru wins at Japfest 2011

A great result for our first outing of 2011,Walton won the team drifting against some of the best teams in the UK and Ireland.  The first session saw the Subaru break a drive shaft, after we replaced that, it went from strength to strength.  It was a great turnout, great to see so many of our customers and friends.

As if that was not enough, we drove stright on to Sunderland for Round 2 of JDM Allstars at the Nissan Factory.  After not much sleep and another early start, the Subaru performed faultlessly.  There was great media interest in the car and we were asked to take Gemma Hunt (BBC) and Ian Black, Nissan Production Director for a passenger ride at the end of the event. 

A very big thanks to Car Travel and driver Chris for all their support this weekend.

Look out for the coverage on Motors TV.

04/07/2010 - JPP Subaru at JDM Allstars Sunderland (Round 3)

The Subaru drift car goes for its first test - during the practise sessions at the Nissan Plant in Sunderland.  The car has been a great success with thanks to the great work put in by Garage D to complete the car and Walton who after just one lap of the circuit in a completely untested car was running at the pace of the top seed cars!!  We managed around 20 runs with a range of tyres, apart from a loose boost hose, the car was absolutely falutless.

We were very very happy with the results and decided we might as well enter qualifying - Walton came in 8th place, a massive achievement for a new car, of which we are a really proud!!!
