JDM COMBE SET TO CELEBRATE 30 YEARS OF THE MKIV TOYOTA SUPRA
This year’s JDM Combe Japanese car show – set to be held on Saturday, 8 July at Wiltshire’s Castle Combe Circuit – will commemorate the 30th anniversary of the iconic MkIV Toyota Supra with a special display.
The MkIV Supra Owners’ Club will occupy a prime area of the main display paddock for the event, bringing with them plenty of examples of this much-loved sports coupé for the thousands of show-goers to admire. These vehicles will also form a special parade lap out on the 1.85-mile circuit – sure to make for an unmissable sight.
Launched in 1993, the fourth-generation Toyota Supra is undoubtedly the firm’s most popular vehicle to sport the badge to date, cementing its legendary status for a number of reasons.
Built as a direct response to other high-performance Japanese sports cars of the time, such as the Mazda RX-7, the Nissan Skyline and the Nissan 300ZX, the Supra was packed with cutting-edge tech which helped fuel it to success.
Encased in the perfectly-proportioned, low-slung body was the option of the mighty 2JZ-GTE six-cylinder twin-turbocharged engine – a powerplant whose tuning capabilities were seemingly endless, still making it a go-to high-power engine option in 2023.
If those weren’t enough ingredients to secure the MkIV Supra’s place in history, the 2001 film The Fast and The Furious was certainly the icing on the cake, featuring a heavily-modified bright orange example driven by none other than Mr Paul Walker.
As well as the Supra display, JDM Combe will also bring its usual dose of Japanese car excitement both on and off the track, with vast club display areas, public track time, drifting demonstrations, a Show & Shine competition and a thriving trade village area just some of the attractions you can expect – all revolving around Japanese cars, of course.
Club stands, advanced admission tickets, track time and trade sites are all still available – for more information, please head over to https://castlecombecircuit.co.uk/shows/jdm-combe
