MEET REPORT: Longest Day Fish 'n' Chip Run

What a genius idea Ian P had, with the Longest Day Fish 'n' Chip run to Whitby!  A lovely 100 mile drive, a lot more for some who travelled some distance to get there, not reaching home until 1am!  But all worth it for a great time and tasty Whitby Fish 'n' Chips.   The idea came about at the regular Yorkshire Pub meet in May!  Well done to Ian for getting things moving in Yorkshire!

Regular Pub Meets

We have regular pub meets all over the country.  Here's just two that caught our attention, Beds/Bucks being the second one and East Mids the first!  Check the calendars, there could be one near you, and if there isn't get in touch and we can set something up!


Organised by Ross, he innaugural East Midlands pub meet, which is now going to be a regular occurrence got off to a great start with 15 cars in attendance, plenty of variety, great chats and good food!   Look out for the regular events in the calendars, and if you're the other side, there is the West Mids meet too!

On the second Thursday of the month, attracting more cars every meet, with a fantastic offer of an "S2Kurry" bowl with rice and Naan for only a fiver!  Some great cars and banter was had in the sunshine at the Beds/Bucks, held in Heath & Reach near Leighton Buzzard, just round the corner from S2KUK HQ! 


It was our first time at JDM Combe this year, and what a great show we had!  The stand looked awesome with some heavily modified S2000s stealing the show.  We had a few cars out on track too. Great stand, great selection of cars with Dan Oliver and Brent Fisher's cars hand picked by the Spoon Sports judge to take part in the parade lap of best cars in show!

MEET REPORT: Southwest Meet & Drive

The 2nd SW meet this year was blessed again with beautiful sunshine, perfect weather for getting some roof down action for all the proud owners who attended on the day. The format of the event had to be changed last minute so it was a second version of the original meet back in March albeit a bit more slicker and organised by the fantastic Sacha!

7 cars turned up, not as many as last time, but we had a a variety of S2000s attend from stock, to tuned and it was such a great opportunity to share experiences of their cars and what makes them so special to the owner. That's what these meets are all about. Its great to meet local enthusiasts who are clearly so passionate about owning and driving these wonderful cars.

The day started at 9am at the Blue Bowl inn in West Harptree where some introductions and and general chit chat took place before leaving at 10am to make use of some of the best Somerset roads which are strewn across the Mendip Hills. 

First stop was Chew Lake for a photo shoot where the vista was exceptional, the road being a physical border to the lake at almost the same height. Other people including cyclists were also stopped to marvel at the scenery, and also the cars. Known well to locals, other machinery was also in attendance including a Ferrari 458 and a posse of C63 AMGs. We drove a 10 mile stretch of twisty and demanding B roads including the Cheddar Gorge where we parked for a while to admire the wonder of the place, at the same time as taking the opportunity to have a few blasts up and down with some photos. The Final leg ended at the Sidcot pub, where we relaxed on the outdoor veranda overlooking some of the Levels, with views towards Weston Super Mare.

What's great about this meet is it brings people together who otherwise would not meet in normal life. It allows to understand others point of view and to reflect on your own. There is always something to learn and someone interesting to meet and socialise with after. We had mostly new members turn up, Denise and Mike even getting a hotel the night before to attend!


MEET REPORT: Japanese Auto Matsuri

This was a lovely little gathering of many things Japanese at the Museum of power, Maldon, including cars, and of course S2000s!  It was a little last minute thing that Dimitar noticed happening in Essex, so a few of the Essex locals made it along!

There was a range of Japanese food, Karate club, live music, competition for the cleanest, best modified, best overall car. There was Toyota CG86 club, MX5, Skylines and Supras. It was a great show with great cars and people and an opportunity for members to get together at a little pre-meet to the massive Japanese Auto Extravaganza coming up at the end of August at the East of England Showground - stay tuned for more news!

MEET REPORT: Classic & Performance Show Tatton Park

This year's Classic and Performance Car show at Tatton Park was another great event where a whole raft of clubs bring their cars and put them on display. Some of the club stands really put the effort in, mowing the grass on their plot, spraying logos onto the grass, bunting and even fully themed displays.

For S2KUK, we had good club stand with the club's feather flags making our presence known, info board and even themed street name signs. Ste & Janet's rare and incredibly well looked after Lime Green facelift was heading up the central corner. On the Saturday they won 2nd place for "Best Sports Car" category, quite a feat considering the quality and number of cars there!

Tom's Kraftwerk supercharged Silverstone example attracted lots of attention on the Sunday too; you could tell he was in his element fielding all of the questions he was peppered with!

As usual, many show go'ers came over and said, "I've got one of these!" and one chap also showed a vast amount of interest in buying one. So, we duly pointed them to the website and with any luck we'll see a few extra recruits!

Issues Receiving our Emails?

We have discovered that a lot of people using Hotmail/Outlook/MSN have not been seeing our emails.  The reason is not because it is being classified as spam, but their stupid Focussed and Other email inboxes.  If you have not been receiving it, and use any of these email clients, have a look in your "Other" inbox, picture below, and the solution to this issue at the bottom.

Here it looks like there is no email (or you might have loads there!):


BUT in the OTHER tab there is S2KUK's email!:


The solution to this is to select the message in OTHER and at the top select Move , then Always Move to Focussed inbox - you then shouldn't miss it - Outlook will learn to classify these emails as "Focussed"  OR you can switch off your Focussed inbox so everything goes in one place
