Fans of motorsport are in for a treat.

Mondello Park is the place to be this weekend if you’re looking to check out some incredible modified cars and watch some of the best drift drivers in the game on the track.

Japfest 2k17 will feature action from the final round of the Irish Drift Championship and an incredible showcase of Japanese cars that car lovers are sure to appreciate. It promises to be an amazing day for any motor enthusiasts.

Round five of the Irish Drift Championship will take place on Saturday, 23 September, and Sunday, 24 September. You’ll also get to see the final round of the new Drift Super Series, which will pitch the best of the Irish Drift Championship against the British Drift Championship and some of the world’s best drivers.

Irish drivers have been tearing up the drifting scene, with the European and British drifting titles currently being held by Irish drivers. You also have a new breed of teenage Irish drivers who are moving up the ranks in the sport.


Irish superstar James Deane will be back on home soil to compete in this event. The current leader of the Formula Drift series in the US is no stranger to this track and he’ll be joined by other homegrown stars like Jack Shanahan and the 16-year-old Thomas Kiely.

In addition to the deciders of the Irish Drift Championship and the Drift Super Series, you can also enjoy the sight of some of some seriously impressive Japanese cars and bikes in the paddock area of Mondello Park. There’ll be prizes for various categories, including “Best in Show,” and it will be a collection that will impress any motor fan.

The weekend’s action kicks off at 10am on Saturday, with show cars arriving from 8am. Tickets are available online or at the gate from €22.50, with free admission for U12s and limited grandstand seating available.
