MEET REPORT: Megameet X

The months of planning are complete, the route has been finalised, the hotel is booked, cars are checked and cleaned, the waiting is over.  It’s time for undoubtedly the main event of the 2014 S2KUK meet calendar – MEGAMEET X .

The base for this tenth year of Megameet was in the rolling valleys of mid Wales.  The Metropole hotel in Llandrindod Wells was chosen as a base.  This luxury hotel is used by many car clubs and the owner, Justin Baird-Murray, is an ex-S2000 owner and spent a lot of time with us during the course of the weekend making sure everything was perfect.

From late Thursday S2000s began to arrive from all over the UK and Europe.  It was a truly international meet with a large Dutch and Belgian contingent of 14 cars who had enjoyed Euromeet earlier in the year.  There was also Robbie and Biggy (rk renntechnik) from Germany who bought over their immaculate and highly modified ASM Pearl White 2.2 litre – a car that created a great deal of interest over the weekend.  Not forgetting our friends from Ireland who are regular MM attendees and will be hosting the event in September 2015.

MEET REPORT: Honda Healthcheck at Redhill Honda

Each year, just before the annual MegaMeet, we approach local Honda dealers to help us to raise money for our charity of the year. This year Redhill Honda exceeded all our expectations and gave up their time on a Saturday morning to allow the club free access to their trained S2000 technicians and facilities.

Simon (strobinson1) chats to Steve, one of the technicians, before things get underway

So staggered over the morning we had cars on the ramps for a free Healthcheck. For those of us going to MegaMeet it was a good opportunity to ensure the cars were prepped and ready for the weekend. We were also able to scrutinise the underside of the car to check for any issues, something that isn’t so easy unless you can get them on the ramp. I think most of us were amazed how clean they all seemed to be underneath.

Graham (CynicG) gets some expert advice from Steve

All the staff where very helpful and the mechanics carried out a very thorough check on the cars before answering our many questions and queries. They covered everything for a leaking diff washer to locating the cause of over-run rattle.
The team at Honda were also very interested in some of the mods we had made to the cars and this took as much time discussing as the checks themselves. We also appreciated the bacon sarnies and coffee on tap !

Alans’s immaculate GT100 on the ramp

A total of £320 was raised on the day towards this year’s chosen charity - Macmillan Cancer Care. So a big thank you to all those who bought their cars along for their generosity.

However a particular thank you must go to Martin, Kevin and Steve and the team at Redhill Honda for giving up their time and making this possible!!

MEET Report: Dunsfold Wings & Wheels 2014

Meet report by Andy Sharp 

DUNSFOLD WINGS AND WHEELS – 24th AUGUST 2014

Dunsfold Park is where Top Gear is filmed.  Each year on the August Bank Holiday weekend they have their popular Wings and Wheels event.  Last year S2KUK had a stand in the Wheels Section and it was such a great day we decided to do the same this year.

We had 10 cars on the stand,  which attracted a lot of interest from the crowd.  We spent the day chatting to previous owners, many of who regretted parting company with their S2000.  We also had a lot of people asking for advice on buying one – so maybe some prospective new club members Smile

The club stand

The weather was kind to us and  S2000 events can be quite posh when it comes to picnics and this proved to be no exception, smoked salmon, rose wine, tarte-au-citroen (citron?) were all on the menu.  Next year we hope to bring the full dining set and candelabras!

MEET REPORT: Norfolk Broads Meet

Many thanks to Andrew Sharp (Andy2000) for this great reports on the Norfolk Boads Meet:

On 16th August Norfolk played host to a meet around the Norfolk Broads.  The weekend started on Friday evening with some members meeting for a meal in the pub and then heading back to Steve and Sharon’s (Minvo) for a few drinks.  Cars came from as far as Nottingham and Surrey and on Saturday morning eleven S2000s met for a sensible 10:00am departure from Thickthorn services.  There was a good mix of cars, with of course Silverstone being the dominant colour.

As usual, Steve had organised things in detail, right down to a full route guide that made everyone’s life really easy while we were ragging it through the narrow roads around the Broads.   We headed East towards the coast with some beautiful scenery for a first stop at the Woods End Pub down by the river Yare.   However we were all psyched up for driving so this became a quick comfort break before heading off again.

The next leg took us onto Thurlton.  Steve backing everyone up on a number of occasions before releasing us on to some fabulous roads where we could really stretch the legs of our S2000s in full VTEC.  This accompanied by the growl of a number of induction kits, all drowned out of course by Jack’s (Jack_ako) exhaust mod !

2015 S2KUK Calendar Competition - ENTER NOW!

We will be producing another S2KUK Calendar this year, so now it is time to start getting your pictures or cameras out, and to submit your photo entries!  Please see below for rules and instructions - ESPECIALLY the first one!

RULES AND REGULATIONS

We all want to see great shots of the S2000, so we have high standards for submissions.

  • Photos need to meet a minimum resolution for print purposes. That minimum is "high resolution" - at least 150 dpi, in tif, png, jpg formats. As a guide, photos should generally be 3-4 MB or more
  • You CAN obscure license plates if you wish
  • Photos need to be cropped "loose" this is to avoid having some great submissions that we can’t use because the image was already cropped too tight to the S2000.
  • Try and leave some space around the S2000 so the image can be cropped to fit the calendar. 
  • No watermarks allowed.
  • NO NUDITY - images must be work and family safe.
  • If there is enough demand for hot ladies (or men!) posing we may do a short run of an alternative calendar.
  • ONE ENTRY ONLY per person (so choose wisely) You may if you wish supercede your entry as many times as you want

TIPS

  • Photos can't just be "driveway" shots, no hose and bucket in the background. You need to be creative, artistic, and unique! At least find a scenic spot to take the pic!
  • Lots of people take the ubiquitous 1/4 front or 1/4 rear view, and we can only have so many similar poses in a calendar, so taking the time to do something different and interesting will count toward the submissions
  • The calendar is not for profit, and stresses the love we have for our cars. 

How to make a submission

  • When you have a photo to submit, rename it with the following format:  "Real_Name.jpg" (YOUR NAME not actually Real_Name.jpg!)
  • Email them to: calendar@s2kuk.com
  • Photos have to be emailed for entry. This is your tacit consent that they can be used in the calendar, and on the S2KUK website.
  • Submissions not following the criteria above will be rejected without notice so please follow the instructions! 

Submission deadline will be October 5th 2014 at 23:59

Submissions will then be put on the S2KUK website for voting.

Remember, submissions need to be EMAILED.  

If they are not emailed, they are not entered.


IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT COPYRIGHT

By entering this calendar competition you are giving licence to S2KUK (UK S2000 Owners Club) to use your image for publication in the calendar and on the S2KUK website.  

IF YOU DO NOT OWN COPYRIGHT of the image - that is if YOU did not take the photograph it will not qualify for the competition. 

DO NOT ENTER WITH A PHOTO YOU DID NOT TAKE, as it can have serious consequences if it is published. 

By entering a photo to the competition you are agreeing to indemnify UK S2000 Owners Club against any action regarding copyright should you have entered a photo of which you do not own copyright.

MEET Report: Silverstone Classic 2014

Thanks to Andy Sharp for doing this write up!

Silverstone Classic 2014 lived up to its expectations as one of the highlights of the S2KUK meets calendar.  We were blessed with fantastic weather for the event, and during the course of the weekend over 38  S2000s joined us on the club stand on the infield,expertly arranged by Minvo.

Honda UK  kindly supplied us with a marquee which we could use as a base and this became an excellent meeting place between races to chill out with a PIMM'S or two (we are a civilised club after all !) and chat with other owners and the host of people who came over to admire and ask us about our cars and the club.
