    Apologies for the delay in the update ,due to windows10 appearing like a "trojan horse" on my computer messing up all my settings. I have final rid myself of this parasite so onto the event report.this is the 6th year of attendance and by far the biggest turn out and the most time consuming event to organize so far the stand presented 13 cars ,4 monkey bikes and motocompo,s , 8 60,s suitcase generators ,and 2 kick n go,s !!!

    A massive thank you to all that presented their cars and represented our Honda stand throughout the weekend to the public

    A special thank you to

    Luke for bringing is small bike collection and hIs Z600
    to CJ for the work load he shared with me over the past weeks preparing our generator display,to those that turned up on the day before to help set up the stand and campsite
    to pete for helping in the run up to the weekend to resolve issues with the S800 owners that had problems with their cars making it possible for them to attend
    and last but not least to my wife (kathy) for supplying the food for our guest and being the perfect hostess

    also a very warm welcome to Lyndon the photographer who was down for the Sunday representing HONDA covering our stand and content and covering our Honda that was racing over the weekend

    and also my i say thank you for the 3 hondakarma members that attended JIMJAM .ZORAN AND MONKEYBOY , may i take this opportunity to apologies for not having more time to spend with you !!!!
    OMG I FORGOT !!!!!:Blushing: THE @legandary :shock::shock::shock::shock: OOPS SORRY MATE :Grin:

    the show started for some the day before turning up early to set up the display site and to organize the camping area ready for the sunday morning start of show
    SUNDAY started for me at 6.30 and with the help of CJ we opened up the stand and display working out where to place the cars on there arrival
    leaving CJ to meet and greet our car owner at 7.15 i then departed to the race paddock to prepare for a days racing
    i was able to flit from paddock to display stand throughout the day and was pleased to catch up with more or less everyone that attended for a chat and lunch leaving the stand in very capable hands of representing all our honda,s to the general public

    young and old made a nice blend for the evening where drinking and eating ensued to the early hour with one of our group armed with song sheets seranaded us all !!!

    I was only there for few hours but i enjoyed it.
    Must say Honda stand looked impressive with all the genies, bikes and fantastic collection of cars.

    It is definitely different to Japfest and few other meets I've been to.
    Well done to all of you that organised/attended and showed all the Honda goodies on display.
    :likeit::GoodJob:

    Haha I was addicted to tyre and exhaust fumes of all the cars getting off the line so was there capturing all the action. Made a few runs back to the stand but didn't find anyone so went back to different sections of the track to watch the action. I'll get the video up shortly with most of the starts.

    What better way to log my first post than to write about motorsport at the palace. This year is by far the best show stand displayed. A credit to slim and all the car owners.

    Slim ran my can on the sunday sprint and came to a very respectable 2nd in class.

    Hope you like the pictures. My children definitely enjoyed it.

    I'm well aware there are other pictures hence i said "some" otherwise i would have used the word "them"
    I totally agree CJ, things get lost on FB and it can be frustrating but some must like it. There's 5000 people in my Facebook group and some great pictures and info get thrown up every now and then. I just save the things i want to see. Its very rare i have the time to upload pictures to a separate website then link them to a forum. It takes way too much time away from doing actual Honda things in fact i must go.... I've got another 1335 stripped down on the bench for a cylinder head stud conversion. Toodle pip. Jay
