I have been contacted by the directors of John Banks Honda who know my cars and have asked me to attend the above event which is being organised with Honda Marketing. The focus is all Honda products and although in part it is to celebrate the 45th anniversary for John Banks Honda it is intended to be an annual event.

Here is the text from the email I have received:

So I met with Mark Banks MD on John Banks Honda the organisers. This is a personal project for Mark that he has been trying to get off the ground for several years. It will be at Trinity Park land which is a huge show ground in Ipswich which borders the John Banks dealership site. They are planning for 150 cars on display but have space for several hundred more if the numbers are there. Plus they have separate space for the usual food and other stuff plus motorcycles, F1 displays, garden equipment etc. Mark has co-operation from Honda UK and is personally picking items from the Honda UK stock of cars, motorcycles and industrial equipment.

Promotion is only just getting underway and he is keen for as many NSX as possible to attend along with the greatest variety of other Honda models possible.

His intention is for this to become recognised nationally and grow substantially over the years.

So I hope to see as many of you as possible representing the greatest Honda product of all.

Update: I received a ticket via Eventbrite today. Ticket is for ‘Honda Owner - Visitor’. It’s not clear if I’ve been accepted to display my car at this stage, hopefully a further display ticket will follow, perhaps nearer the date.

I have also received the tickets via Eventbite - I sure you have been accepted, they want as many cars as possible and I think it is unlikely they will run out of space have seen the site. Look forward to seeing you there.

I spoke to the organisers today and they are pleased to have 450 exhibitors registered so there should be a good variety of cars and bikes plus all sorts of other products. I hope we get 6 or more NSX on site. I know the S800 club are attending so there should be several S800 and maybe S600 as well. I have also tried to persuade JDR racing to bring some of their cars and hope they will make it.
