Can I enter my club stand into the show?

Yes, you can enter a club stand. To enter a stand, every person on your stand must enter their car individually, choosing their entry type as a club stand entry and putting the name of your stand as the stand name. We will then be able to group your entries and park you together at the show.

I purchased tickets before getting accepted. What do I do?

If you purchased regular tickets for Japfest from the Mondello Park website before hearing back about your show entry and then later you get accepted into the car show, your original Japfest ticket(s) you have purchased can still be used by you to access the car show with the car you have been accepted in, meaning you do not need to purchase a discounted car show entry ticket if you have already purchased regular tickets.

However, do please note that if you purchase tickets and then later get accepted into the show, Mondello Park cannot refund your original ticket purchase.

Does my car show entry ticket get me into the grandstand?

No, accepted car show entry tickets to Japfest do not grant access to the Mondello Park grandstand for any part of the event. 

If you have been accepted into the show and have purchased a discounted car show entry ticket, but still wish to sit in the Mondello Park grandstand, please call the Mondello Park office on +353 45 860 200 and if tickets for the grandstand are still available, they will be able to sell you them over the phone.

Does my car show entry ticket include my passengers?

No – Any passengers coming to the show with you must purchase tickets at regular spectator ticket prices.

I was accepted but can't go. Can I give someone my spot?

If your car is accepted into the show, you cannot sell or transfer your place to another person or car, as only the car you have originally entered will have been accepted.
