After being a bit distracted through 2019 I'm hoping to make amends and get to a lot more shows and club events in 2020 but I need to give the MK1 a bit of tlc before show season kicks off

I've been the OC's rep for JDMCombe since it started.
(when Japfest moved from Castle Combe to Silverstone).
Will be doing so again for 2020.

I'm a bit confused about shows this year.

Last year I went to Yakushi in Towcester - their website still looks like it's on in September - https://yakushi-show.co.uk/

There also seems to be a show with the same name in August which is going ahead - https://www.britishmotormuseum.co.uk/wh ... -club-meet

Are these different shows? By the time I got my mr2 fixed up last year I missed most of show season except for 1 - keen to try and go to at least 1 this year!

Yes, they are 2 separate events but the August 1 day event has been rolled over twice now from april originally I think so planned for much earlier in the year.

The Yakushi show is the 3 day one like last year in sept.

As far as I know at present, both are still going ahead.

I know of 3 of us planning on going to the 1 day one but hanging back on buying my ticket just yet!
