Latest News - From the UK S2000 Owners Club

S2000 Takeover at Beaulieu Motor Museum - 19th July

We are very pleased to announce a car show for S2000s to take over Beaulieu Motor Museum!

We have the hard stand arena booked exclusively for S2KUK with capacity for 120 cars! If we get more than 120 people interested there is the possibility to expand onto the grassed areas surrounding the arena so we have the chance to make this a really great big meet.

There are plans to arrange a couple of prizes and ask some of the Motor Museum staff to (impartially) judge our cars for the traditional "Best in Show" awards for a bit of fun!

Being right in the middle of summer we should have an awesome day out and this would be a great opportunity to meet other S2000 fans. You can even ride the Monorail and see all the cars from the air! After the initial meet and greet and people wondering off into the Museum attractions, meet back at the Arena around 1pm for lunch. Recommend packing a picnic.

The Motor Museum itself is very impressive with lots to see and do, well worth the trip. There's also plenty of hotels and campsites nearby for anyone wanting to make a weekend of it.

Sad News - Steve Bennett

It is with great sadness that we hear about the death of one of our members, Steve Bennett on Thursday 13th February. 

Steve was a lovely man and we had some great times with him at the Megameets he attended, where he made many friends.  He had a positive outlook, fun attitude and was warm and generous, he will be sadly missed.  Our condolences are with his wife Jennie and the family at this time.

Below is a lovely picture of Steve (right) with Sam Snoddy at Megameet 9 from last September, in Whitby.

Your Car Featured in Practical Classics?


A journalist has approached us who is writing a buying guide on the S2000 for Practical Classics. Your chance for your car to be featured! Here are a few details:

  • The earlier the model the better.
  • The car needs to be tidy bit it doesn't have to be concours.
  • Not heavily modified.
  • Ideally the car needs to be a 'colour' as these photograph better; white cars can't be used and black cars make the page look too black and white, so if the car can be a brighter colour, or silver, that is best.
  • The shoot will take place in the next 8 weeks.

The car needs to be taken to Derby to be photographed in a purpose built car studio and fuel expenses up to £100 will be paid. The owner will get a full set of the pictures for their personal use.


Please contact Vicky Dredge below with a picture of your car to be considered.

Classic Marques Speed Challenge Invite

Following our recent membership to the MSA, S2KUK have been approached by the Classic Marques Speed Challenge organiser to see if there is any interest from members to take up sprinting or hillclimbing with them.  It is an ideal introduction to competing and racing your S2000!

Classic Marques Speed Challenge is a series of 26 sprints and hillclimbs specifically for sports car drivers.  The championship was set up initially for classic British sports cars but these days such a high proportion of sports cars are made by International companies that this year Classic Marques opens its doors to cars made by Honda amongst many other international makes.  The Honda S2000 especially is a subtle and iconic sports car which performs well on the roads, but it has an inner strength and willing high revving engine which makes it perfect for motorsport too.

Below you will find a few questions and answers

Link to an introduction to sprinting and hill climbing (PDF document)

What does Classic Marques look like?


Please see the gallery page here:!untitled/component_9350

Why is the Classic Marques Speed Championship fair?

​Each car is given a handicap factor based on power, weight and tyres fixed until the car spec changes. The weight of the driver is also included in the handicap algorithm. The algorithm enables cars of different powers and weights to compete fairly against each other.

Who can enter Classic Marques Speed Challenge?

MSA Speed License (Min Nat B) carrying drivers of sports cars made by Alfa Romeo, Allard, Aston Martin (Pre 2000), Austin Healey, Ferrari, Gilbern,  Ginetta, Honda, Jaguar, Lotus, Marcos, Mazda, MG, Morgan, Porsche, Reliant, Renault, Sunbeam, Toyota, Triumph and TVR.

Which Clubs are invited?

What does it cost to join?

It costs just £25 to enter Classic Marques Speed Challenge which enables access to 26 championship rounds are at the best sprint and hillclimb venues in the country (best 8 scores count towards championship score). The series regs have been published for 2014 and can be found here:

Thanks to all the friends of Ian Sunley

Here is a lovely picture and message received from Nicola Sunley following the tragic death of her husband Ian Sunley in December.

Following Ian’s death in December, I wanted to personally thank all those who donated to the charities that I chose in remembrance.  I was very touched that the club did this in his honour.  The club and members were a big part of our lives for the last couple of years.  Ian was fanatical about driving and wasted no time in planning all the events he wanted to go to. So for the last couple of years, we attended many events up and down the country and thoroughly enjoyed the events and the company we found ourselves in.   Many of you know that Ian was diagnosed with heart disease in the early summer of last year, he was awaiting a triple, possibly quadruple bypass. This was hard news to take considering he had been an active and well man for many years.  This meant that he had to slow down, take medication and wait for an operation.  During this time he took things a little easier and attended all the events and weekends away that he could. He even went down to the Druids run without me – I was not up for the early start, but Ian returned smiling from ear to ear, complete with a burnt face from the sun that day (or was it from the wind, I cannot remember).

When Ian’s dad had a heart attack 10 years ago, and underwent a triple bypass in his 60th year, Ian made a decision that we were not going to wait until we retire before we start and see the world and this is one thing that makes it a little easier to bear.  We had a wonderful life together, were blessed with three wonderful children and for the last 10 years have made an effort to enjoy life and see some of the amazing countries and sites there are to see.   I have many memories of Ian and the years we shared together.  I’m sure many of you have your own memories of him, I expect most of these include Belgium beer! Ian was a kind man who would do anything for anyone and would think nothing of going out of his way to help out.  He loved to burn the candle at both ends and enjoyed the driving and social aspects of the club.

I would like to thank all those who donated for Cancer Research, Help for Heroes and the British Heart Foundation. The club raised £637.50. I am amazed and touched by your generosity along with all the kind messages received.  I hope to meet some of you again soon. Enjoy your S2000, I know Ian did.

Nicola Sunley

Tragic Loss of a Very Special S2KUK Member - Updated

It is with heavy hearts, shock and sadness that we hear about the death of a dear friend from the S2000 community.

Ian Sunley tragically lost his life on Thursday afternoon.  He was a lovely man, always happy, smiling, having fun, he was a very enthusiastic member of the club and was the life and soul of the party.  It was only last weekend that many of us were blessed to have him and Nicola in our company at the annual S2KUK Christmas party.

RIP Ian, you were a true gentleman.  All our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to Nicola, their children and the rest of Ian's family and friends at this very sad time. 


Ian's funeral will take place at Sherwood Forest Crematorium, New Ollerton NG22 0DY on 27th December at 12 noon, then afterwards at White Lion Pub, West Street, Retford DN22 6ES.

The club is accepting donations towards the nominated charities; Cancer Research UK, Help for Heroes and British Heart foundation via the donation button below.


No More Paper Tax Discs!

The Chancelor announced that after 93 years the paper tax disc will be axed in October 2014.

So we need some ideas as to what else we could put in the membership pack instead of the tamper proof tax disc holder.  We are also thinking about an alternative to the key rings, as some people have almost 10 of these now!

Post your ideas in the comments below!

The provisional timetable will be announced early in 2014. S2KUK members benefit from a two-for-one ticket offer on advance tickets when they quote their unique club code at time of booking (deadline Wednesday, April 23rd) and at the time of booking, will be asked to request the number of infield passes they require, allowing them to join the other cars on display in their club's dedicated infield parking area, to create a fantastic exhibit for all spectators to enjoy.
