MEET REPORT: S2KUK Redhill Honda Day

Owners pose with their cars

For the third year running our good friends at Honda Redhill laid on a special S2000 club day.  Thirteen cars attended, some even coming from the other side of the M25.   It was an opportunity for us to get some time on the ramp and to chat with their S2000 trained technicians on anything and everything to do with our cars.  Many members chose to get some specific work done ranging from full service and MOTs to Aircon regassing.  Some even took advantage of the complimentary jet-wash.

For those of us who could get up this early on the weekend, the day started at 9am with a welcome breakfast of pastries and coffee and as we arrived we were presented with a Honda goody bag.   At one point five car lifts were available so it didn’t take too long before each of us was having a good look around at the rarely seen underneath of our cars.  

Honda Technican prepares to lift the next one

There were very few issues found, mainly surface rust on exhausts and suspension components which is as expected.  What was of interest is the very little difference between low mileage cars and older vehicles of 100K miles plus.   The main theme seemed to be radiators where the bottom vanes were showing signs of disintegration on a good number of our cars, although the technicians didn’t seem to think this was a big issue for those of us who only used the car on the road.

Rusty suspension fitted as standard on older cars

Also on tap were test drives of the new shaped Civic and the latest Civic Type R. The latter proving by and far to be the most popular choice.  Let’s hope we don’t get any members ditching their S2000s for this, although the consensus of opinion was that it was far better to have the rear wheel driven power of the S, despite the amazing cornering capabilities of the Type-R.

 

Steve (Topless-S2K) about to take the Type-R for a ragging

Huge thanks go out to Martin and his team at Redhill Honda for making us all feel so welcome and putting the technicians at our disposal for the day. Also a special thanks to Steve (aka Topless-S2K) who got the whole thing off the ground.  We hope to be able to organise a further event for S2KUK members later in the year.

MEET REPORT: Cranleigh Classic Car Show

A new first for the club this year – we were invited to display our cars at this large annual classic car show. Normally restricted to cars over 20 years old, the exception is for car clubs and it was great that our S2000’s are now seriously considered to be modern classics.

The weather was kind to us and we were on site early to set up a stand with 12 cars, which was a great attendance for the first time at this show. This included a rare Mugen example and one of the GT100s.

The show was hosted by Mike Brewer from Wheeler Dealers (Edd was on his holidays) and although this year we were unable to get one of the S2000’s in the display arena, we are promised that this will happen next year if we attend. It would be interesting to hear what Mike might have to say about them following his recent experiences with the S.

There were over over 1800 cars on display, ranging from rare Aston Martins, huge American saloons to the more humble cars that some of us would have driven around in the 1970s and 80s. (or at least were driven by our parents).

Sadly the event was marred by a serious illness in the crowd which put things on hold for a while.  This resulted in an unscheduled visit from the Surrey Air Ambulance helicopter. We hope the person was OK but it proved to be an impressive display of the responsiveness and professionalism of our emergency services.

Throughout the day we were approached by people asking not whether they should buy an S2000, but which model year they should get when they do.! Some of us had to brush up our knowledge on the different changes for each face lift so we could speak with some authority on the subject. We even found some owners who didn’t know about the club and are now keen to, or have joined.

A big thank you to everyone who took part. Everyone seemed to thoroughly enjoy the day and the feedback suggests we’d want to do this again next year. Who knows, we may even end up having a club presence when our cars really are 20 years old! (That's only 3 years away!)
