It has been 48 hours of hell followed by joy but Team Japspeed are pleased to report four men have been arrested in connection with the theft of the Japspeed Impreza. We will have more details when they follow (due to ongoing investigations) but this is a MASSIVE positive for the whole team, all our followers and EVERY person who took time out to help search for the car and provide information when it mattered most. In the end, we found the car in Bucklebury Close, Holyport with the help of Thames Valley Police. The car had one side of stickers removed, the rear wings, spoiler, bumper and lights – most of which has already been retrieved back.
‘The support we’ve had has simply been overwhelming’ says Japspeed’s Paul McCallum. ‘For those wondering, the car WAS disabled, however those involved managed to start it while it was left unattended. We’ve been to hundreds of shows and this has never happened before – people usually have respect. It is a shame as it means we will have to be extra vigilant with leaving the car on show for the 99.9% of punters who just want to enjoy the car, but we hope something like this never happens to anyone.’
We will keep you informed when more news arrises on the four connected, but until then we thank everyone for their support and help. The rest of the report can now be found on the BBC website here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-13755547
