The Japanese Performance Show 2004 Review

Last year's show was something very special to try to live up to, but both the weather and the cars were superb, and a massive “thanks” goes out to every person who supported the event, traders, clubs, racers and spectators alike.

Even before the gates opened on Sunday morning it was clear that this was going to be another incredibly popular show. Over 1,500 spaces had been laid out for car clubs, trade bookings were full, and a bevy of serious race cars had been lined up for the showcase Pro Shootout.

The club stands filled up very quickly, and it was great to see such amazing collections of cars from entire clubs consisting of limited edition Civic Jordans, though to massive displays by the Subaru Impreza Drivers Club (who incidentally won the Best Club Display trophy).

Every type of Jap car was represented, from tiny Suzuki Cappuccinos right through to monstrous Honda NSXs. The latest high-tech imports stood alongside classic Celicas and old-skool rides from every make and model.

There was a great selection of traders on hand selling pretty much everything from unique draggin' tyres and performance parts through to branded clothing and merchandise. The temptation to empty the wallet was hard to resist. Just down from the trade area was the Pro Pit area where the day's top Japanese tuners and importers could park and work on their cars. The Pro Shootout was a new concept for 2004, whereby the fastest cars in the UK would go head to head in proper drag racing eliminations to find the fastest Japanese car in Europe. The turnout for the Pro Shootout was excellent, with most of the big names represented, with only a couple of notable absences (we hope you guys know what you missed out on!).

Pro Shootout Qualifying:

Race # Driver From Car Cc Et Mph
PRO10 Ron Kidell Essex R32Skyline 2,600 10.234 141.12
PRO1 Andy Barnes Kent R34Skyline 2,600 10.325 144.28

PRO8 Gary Passingham Sussex R33Skyline 2,600 11.749 125.38

PRO4 David Craig Surrey Supra 3,100 Broke/Abort

PRO14 John Morgan Sussex Supra 3,000 Broke/Abort
PRO12 Nigel Filo Lancs R34Skyline 2,800 Broke/Abort
PRO9 Dan Wrench London R33Skyline 2,700 Broke/Abort

Number one qualifier was Ron Kidell of RK Tuning, who clocked a super 10.234 secs @ 141.12 mph. The fastest in Qualifying goes up against the slowest in qualifying therefore giving the fastest cars the best chance of going through to the next round. Unfortunately, the qualifying process took out Adrian “Fensport” Smith's diff in his Toyota Corolla, and Gary Passingham of GT-ART's gearbox, so despite qualifying well, they were unable to progress through the eliminations. Better luck next time guys!

Winner


The eliminations progressed with some tight battles, including an awesome flight between Abbey Motorsport's Rocket Ronnie and Sumo Power's Andy Barnes, where Andy clocked a stunning best ET of 9.681 seconds @ 146.21 mph. Andy ended up in the final with number one qualifier Ron Kidell, in what was set to be an incredibly tense staging process. Neither wanted to throw away the final, and Ron's historically better reaction times might have helped him to a win, but it was not to be- after an awesome launch, Ron's gearbox packed in, and Andy was left with no competition to take the first ever Japanese Performance Show Pro Shootout win!





Running in between the Pro Shootout sessions was the usual Run What Ya Brung action, where us mere mortals are allowed out on the hallowed Santa Pod asphalt. The Run What Ya Brung best times are as follows:

Class Car # ET (Seconds) TS (mph)
Nissan/Datsun A 130 11.463 125.39
Toyota/Lexus B 600 11.225 137.62
Honda/Acura C 26 12.724 111.10
Mitsubishi/Proton D 32 11.235 126.36
Subaru E 181 12.339 113.59
Mazda F 297 12.761 113.06
Suz/Dai/Isuz G 99 14.494 99.54

Also on track were a couple of other drag racing monsters, including Dave Wilson's Top Fuel dragster and Martin Hill's Firefoce 2. Both exhibition vehicles stunned the crowd with 5-second passes. Dave Wilson was in a Top Fuel car for only the second time in his life, so he surprised all with his pedal-to-the metal run that resulted in a top-end fire and some jittery driving, but still clocked an incredible 5.36 seconds @ 205 mph! Martin Hill's performances were even more “shocking” – He did two runs, the first of which was an awesome 5.8 second run, and the second run went unrecorded due to the shock-waves damaging the timing gear in the tower, and breaking a window!

Over in the Meguiar's Best of Show paddock, a selection of great show cars were lined up catching the occasional glimpse of sunshine. A big thanks to everyone who turned, and congratulations to Neill Richardson, who walked away with the Best of Show trophy for his stunning Orange Honda Integra.

So, at the end of Santa Pod Raceway's largest ever one-day event, everyone went home happy, dry, amazed… and desperate for some more Jap-drag action! See you next year!
