HondaFest, Europe’s biggest Honda event, will be held at Trafficport (Venlo, NL) for the third time. Looking back on a great event last year, with almost 1400 Honda’s, with their drivers out of at least 9 different countries, we’re already looking forward to the 2015 edition. The new themes for this year have been announced and we’re also introducing a new activity, the Kickdown Competition. The returning activities, such as the Wet Track Experience and the Show & Shine, will remain to be free of charge for its participants.
The S2000: one of the few convertibles that Honda has ever produced. This year we’ve selected this specific model to shine in the spotlights at the Honda S2000 Strip. During the first edition of HondaFest, we’ve had (in collaboration with the Honda S2000 Forum) a great S2000 line-up on the paddock. Never the less, we’re hoping to set a record this year!
Many Honda fans, who appreciate the Honda youngtimers, have put the Honda CRX on their bucket list. The CRX is becoming more and more rare, and more of an icon in the Honda scene these days. Therefore we have chosen for the CRX Center during the third edition of HondaFest.
2015 is the year in which we’ll introduce a new activity, the Kickdown Competition. Participants must accelerate as fast as they can to a marked area, in which they must come to a standstill. So it’s not only important how fast your Honda is, the precision of the contestant is also an important aspect. How good are you at estimating your braking distance? An interesting, new activity for the audience as well as the drivers.
At the Prelude Plaza, we're happy to welcome every Prelude Honda has ever made, starting with the first generation and up to the fifth and last generation! Do you own a Prelude and would you like to participate? Find out how you're able to sign up in advance and you might win one of the free entry tickets for HondaFest that we're giving away.
Ultra Racing Handling Course
The most famous activity at HondaFest, is the Ultra Racing Handling Course. The competition element is to finish as quickly and as flawless as possible. And from beginner to the experienced driver, regardless of their experience and budget, anyone can participate. For more information, please check the website. Participants are already able to sign up.
Show & Shine
One of the activities that can’t be missed during HondaFest, must definitely be the Show & Shine. Many owners let the judges check out their Honda, hoping that they’ll be the ones leaving with one of the trophies. This year, we’ve got a selection of new categories. Participating in the Show & Shine is free of charge.
