  • SpeedMachine Festival 2019

    Combining top level rallycross with drift demos, live music, quality food and more - the SpeedMachine Festival is not to be missed!
  • Japspeed get the Corbeau Treatment!

    There's no other way of putting it really - a good pair of bucket seats are an essential requirement any drift car. With the first round of the 2013 Maxxis British Drift Championship just a few weeks away at the time we decided the interiors in our three S15s and Scooby needed a long overdue freshen up and, after a call to UK based seat specialists Corbeau, our new seats were on the way.

    Corbeau seats are renowned for being excellent value while not compromising on safety - the most important factor in any race car.

    With four cars to kit out we opted for eight of Cobreau's carbon kevlar Pro-Series perches. With the option of custom finishes and embroidery available, we decided to try something extra special.

    While the S15s piloted by Shane Lynch and Shane O'Sullivan received Monster Energy themed seats...

    ...the Scooby and Paul Smith's S15 were treated to Maxxis themed items.

    The carbon kevlar is not only extremely strong, it's also very pretty to look at too!

    We'd like to thank Corbeau for providing us with such an awesome set of seats to kit out our cars with - they've made the world of difference compared to the relatively plain perches that we had before!

    If you want to kit out your car with a pair of Corbeau seats be sure to take a look at their website:
