MEET REPORT: Honda Redhill Open Day

It was very kind of Honda Redhill to once again open their workshop to us on a Saturday morning!  They were on hand for advice whilst members could tinker with their cars, have a good look over (and under!) them, whilst chatting to each other.   They put on special deals for the day too!

Following the success, another event is going to be held early next year so cars can be given the once over before departing for Euromeet next May!  

If you think your local dealer, or an independent garage could be up for something like this, then put them in touch!

   

MEET REPORT: Silverstone Classic 2018

A firm favourite in the S2KUK calendar, Silverstone Classic definitely delivered once again.  There is always something for everyone at this three day event: an incredible selection of historic motor racing from historic F1 through to Super Touring cars; high speed demos from modern F1 and World GP bike legends; unrivalled free paddock and unrivalled free pit access; free grandstand access; a huge variety of club displays *and* live music from Soul II Soul and UB40. 

Club members took advantage of our usual 2 for 1 ticket deal along with free food and Pimm's on our stand which was ideally located near the shopping village and Paddock.   

This year was particularly special for us as, to celebrate 70 years of Honda, we were invited out on track for a parade lap which saw the 50 S2000s on our stand, in colour order of course, take on a lap of the iconic Silverstone circuit, with the GT40 club hot on our tails!   

Provisional dates for the Silverstone Classic in 2019 are: 26 – 28 July.  It’s definitely one for your calendars! AND it'll be the 20th anniversary of the S2000!

 

  

MEET REPORT: First Wirral Pub Meet

Words & Pictures by Jan Gower

Was I going to be the sole S2K at the 1st ever Wirral Meet at the Cottage Loaf?? I am glad to report Steve and Joao arrived to keep me company together with my friend Ann. As I have never done this before it was a huge learning curve. What do people talk about, yes I know cars and that is what we did.

Steve arrived first so we chewed over what we wanted from the meets, we had a few suggestions as well as ‘more meets’. We agreed that the north was a huge area to cover with one meet so we thought the Megameet is a fantastic idea. How do we get to show our cars off at shows and race meetings? Organising runs and that was were Joao came in. We discussed runs to Wales, further afield and locally in Liverpool.

Then the bonnets came up….. Joao told me to shut mine very quickly, and when I saw his and Steve’s I understood why. Steve and I learned a great deal from Joao, tyres, paintwork cleaning engines, interiors, I asked him to do mine, sadly he wasn’t having any of it. For our 1st Wirral Meet it was  low in numbers but the conversations we had took us till 9.40 before we decided we could no longer see very well in the dusk and we parted with a wave and a promise to do it all again next month, this time hopefully with a few more people!

The blue car is mine, Steve’s is the black and Joao’s is the silver.

Thanks for reading and if you live on the Wirral or surrounding areas please come and join us at our next meet same place on 9th August, starting at 7pm at The Cottage Loaf, Telegraph Rd, Thurstaston CH61 0JH

 

 

MEET REPORT: S2KUK Summer Picnic

A record 21 cars came out in the summer sun for the S2KUK Summer picnic at Harrold-Odell Country Park near Bedford.  It was a scorcher and a great opportunity for people to relax, chill out, kick tyres, eat food, drink and chat!    The summer is set to continue, so if anyone fancies having one up north or anywhere else, please get in touch and we can help arrange!

MEET REPORT: Japfest Donington 2018

Japfest took to Donington this weekend, and we welcomed 9 cars onto our stand (sould've been more had everyone known we were there!).  But a great selection of cars were on show.  Bartosz's ultra rare Monza Red really shone in the sunshine, Kyle's beautiful custom built Miami Blue (yep, that's a custom colour) with some seriously hard work gone in styling the bodywork himself which got the most photos; Simon's shining stock yellow, and Liam's 550bhp turbo'd monster to name just a few.  It was blisteringly hot so being next to the ice cream van and slush bar was a help!  Lots of great Japanese metal, traders and attractions along with the track action made for a great day, and we met quite a few new friends and members!  Welcome along guys and girls!

MEET REPORT: Druids Run 2018

We ended June with the annual Druids Run

As well as the longest day Fish 'n' Chip run in Yorkshire, there was a celebration more southerly on 24th June, with the annual Druid's run.  Now in its 11th year, it was again an early start led by Simon with 6 others who got up at the crack of dawn for a 4.30am start from Rickmansworth.  As part of the "Druid" theme, the route followed "Britain's Oldest Road", known as "The Ridgeway" from Ivinghoe Beacon near Tring to Overton Hill near Avebury.  From there it was Stonehenge bound, with a lovely fry up from Friar Tuck's in Amesbury!
