Japfest 2k17

With just under 700 of the finest Japanese cars on display, as well as hosting the final round of the Irish Drift Championship, Japfest has become synonymous with the modified car scene and the drift scene in Ireland.

After the incredible number of applications in 2016, access to display in the paddock area for Japfest 2017 will be by application only, in order to ensure the best Japanese cars on the island will be on display.


After the demand for paddock space last year, we’re capping the number of entries. Clubs and individuals are advised to secure their stands as soon as possible as entry to the paddock on the day will not be guaranteed. For individuals, bookings can only be made with payment.

Entry for car and driver – €10 pre-paid
Entry for bike and rider – €10 pre-paid
Club Entry – €10 per car, 1 free for every 5 cars booked (10 cars paid = 2 free {12}, 15 cars paid = 3 free{18})

To book your club or individual spot. Call the Mondello Park office on 045 860200.

If you would like your car to be considered for the Elite area at Japfest 2k17, please book your space by calling 045 860200 as normal and then send details of your car including images to info@mondellopark.ie for consideration.

KYUSHU – The Elite Area -For the top builds, rare cars, best classic and vintage and most pristine.
HONSHU – The Individual Area – For individuals to display their pride and joy
HOKKAIDO – The Club Stand Area – Car clubs, websites etc.
