Mimms was a staple in the UK honda scene. For the last few years it has been just held at South Mimms car park on the M25. Dav (EHMParts) took the decision to move it to a new location at North Wield airfield in essex, an area which hosts players show & a few others through out the year.
For me, this is a good thing, its a lot closer to home. I booked up for a trade stand as we've got some amazing products we can sell now.
My friend Harv whom you may recognise from Honda Diaries, said he would help me on the day on the stand, so I repaid him with a 6AM start, we drove to North Wield, tired, grumpy and I had a ganky eye infection (reason why i wore sunglasses all day) from my home near colchester with my Civic strapped on (which I had to get on the trailer at 5:30am in the morning on my own) and my Transit van full of gear!
We arrived, got our trade spot and started setting up, I'd bought my camera along for the day expecting to get a few hours where I could walk around and get some snaps for the blog. This didn't happen. Thankfully one of the newest members to our 6TWO1 family Dan Silvester was taking photos & he kindly gave me his photos for the blog.
I wanted to write a personal thank you from me to you to everyone who stopped by our stand, we were non stop all day & i was overwhelmed by the whole thing, it was fantastic. your support for us is Unrivalled! and for that I am grateful! Also i wanted to say thank you to Spoon Sports Europe for being on our stand as well.
So here are Dan's photos, I will be talking you through them and I will link some more down at the bottom on Flickr! Hope you enjoy!
6two1 trade stand, this photo was actually from the end of the day but I wanted to chuck this up first. haha.
Friend of 6TWO1 and avid Spoon Sports fan Shuthan's Civic is a wonder to behold. His Civic is one of the builds which is leading our scene whether you like it or not. Every single part on this car is straight out of the Spoon Sports catalog now even including Seats!
Si's Minty EP3 ! looking awesome sat on some big Rotas & i love the mugen style wing!
Leon Lamberts amazing EG. This guy comes over from Holland & will also be at OUR show IMPACT TWO14 in June! He has some incredible Hondas & I'm almost heartbroken I didn't get to check this bad boy over whilst it was here. Hoping to see it again in the flesh at my show IMPACT TWO14!
Tom Walkers S2000 is such a beautiful car. It could be the poster child for KIIS. Keep it simple stupid! White on White looks amazing & his TE37's are the perfect suit for this car & he tracks it!! no fear!
Wesley who runs EKGARAGE also joined the Dutch invasion of the show with his beautiful Cwest EK9! Wrapped in the matt blue!
Great looking Sedan
Amazing to see this EK on Hydros genuine Backyard Special bumper & a host of other incredible real parts, parked next to the owners Honda Ruckus. They're from the USA I see loads of them out here and it was so cool to see one in the UK the owners name is Parag and he's done a great job capturing the Cali Vibe.
Very Clean White EK
Going through photos that someone else has taken & seeing a car like this makes me so angry that I didnt get to look around, what a stunning OEM+ Example of a EF. Wow.
Beautiful EG which came to Impact last year! he came down early with Hoho was great to see him again.
Stunning EP3 on Advan wheels, with mugen style front! what a beautiful looking car.

This Race Base EK9, which broke my friend Harv's heart as he wanted to buy it. He even took money for a deposit but it seems the sale isnt going ahead. Which is a real shame as this would have been a nice addition to the 6TWO1 Family!
Another shot of our stand, very proud of how busy it was all day, your support is amazing!!
Incredible EG9. One of my favourite cars at the event. Glad I finally got to see it in the flesh..
Closing out the coverage with Dan's DC2. Without him I wouldnt have a blog to post about the show. So I hope you've enjoyed Dan's pictures and my occasional typing.
