    hello one and all
    this year i have organized a club stand for the "1st Generation honda group "at the crystal palace sprint consisting of first generation honda's.
    i have been invited back for the 4th year and hopefully have a number of 70's Civics competing in the sprint.
    if any member would like to attend with your st generation s600 /s800 n600 z600 Civic accord or Prelude or any first gen honda you will be most welcome.
    i am posting this early as spaces on our stand are limited an early response will allow me to work out the spaces that are made available to me .

    For those that display their 1st generation cars for the weekend this is what you will get

    free entry for both days 2 tickets per car
    free camping in the race paddock for the weekend

    on site there is food stands and a beer tent
    a ten minute walk will find you in crystal palace town with many excellent restaraunts and real ale pubs

    so plenty for all in the evenings

    NON CLASSIC CAR STAND
    there is another display area for more modern cars and clubs but there is an entry fee of £10 PER day for the event but if there is a club interest im sure i can sort out some free camping

    LINK TO THE EVENT
    Motor Sport at the Palace


    crystal palace was the LONDON GRAND PRIX CURCIUT running from 1936 to 1972 were the likes of jack brabham in 1966 winning the F2 race in his BT18 which was powered by the HONDA S800 engine !! which took him to winning the championship that year winning 11 0f the 12 races !!!

    this circiut is very dear to me as i have lived within a stones throw of the park most of my life
    i regularly went there with my parents to watch the racing

    i personally have entered the sprint events for a number of years in various cars kindly loaned to me
    heres a few pics of some of the cars I've raced over the years

    this car is a 1928 austin 7 supercharged 750cc side valve running on methanol capable of 120 mph !!! i had the use of this for a couple of years

    Pop me down please Slim, we can have a good chat on the phone about it - but I'd be happy to try and sort out some kind of arrangement for a later generation stand if it is in your interest at all - as I know you're a classic guy through and through.

    @Members, take a look - we're potential going to have a HK stand for the later cars as well - but this all depends on numbers.
