Event coverage: South Mimms Honda Meet Part 2

Words & Photos by Henry Phull

 

Yesterday we attended this year’s second Honda meet at South Mimms services on the M25, organised by EHM parts and Endless Horizon Motorsport. This has got to be the largest Honda gathering in the UK – I’ve never seen so many Honda’s in one place… a Honda enthusiast’s dream. I thought it slightly strange that the meet was held at a service station, not the most impressive venue, although it was very accessible and good location for most people attending. The organisers managed to get the lorry park closed down for the meet, however some lorries got stuck in whilst the show took place. Some didn’t look too pleased, but oh well!

 

Now, let’s get down to it. The photos…

 

 

For me this Integra DC2 was one of the highlights of the day, owned by Rajesh Mannoesingh who had travelled all the way from the Netherlands for the meet.

…Joined by this pretty awesome Civic.

S2000’s always look so good in black.

There were a few other non-Honda Jap cars around, like this stunning RX7. Just needs lowering, pretty please!

This menacing PS13 dominated a whole section of the car park.

Another attendee from the Netherlands was this tidy EG.

I always have time for Skylines, so it was especially nice to see a few R32s.

 

 

 

Loved the blackout look of this slammed EK, caged and on steelies.

 

 

I was hoping to see an NSX, and was in luck with this white example – such awesome machines!

Later in the day this AE86 turned up and I managed to shoot it as the owner was parking up. This car is just as clean inside as it looks out. Great example of an iconic car!

It’s nice to see something a little different like this subtle 4-door Integra.

How about a bit of Honda luxury?

Or a wagon on steels!

This teg could be heard making many loud noises throughout the day. Hey, it wouldn’t be a Honda meet without a bit of limiter.

Loved the stance of this EG, great fitment right there.

Another real head turner, Mark Loony’s EK fitted with hydraulics.

This EP looked pretty different sat on a set of BBS’ that are more commonly seen on BMW E36 328i’s..

Another stand out car drawing in the crowds was Ben Chan’s DC5 sitting on Enkei wheels.

Our friends the ShootAll Ballers were out representing hard, with Benny Rees’ EG and Thierry’s EK, both fully stripped out.

I’m so glad I stumbled across this Skyline hiding away just before I left, seriously awesome.

There were a few German vehicles in attendance, not getting much love, but as I’m a true Euro fan at heart I could not resist, here’s some that caught my eye…

 

 

This E36 M3 was incredibly clean with a beautiful Vader interior too.

 

 

 

All in all a great day out and a real mecca for Honda fans. See you at Mimms 3!
