35 years of Honda UK with Hondalifestyle UK
We’re delighted to work alongside Hondalifestyle UK to celebrate 35 years of Honda in the UK. They will be displaying their rides as a part of the anniversary display, be sure to check them out!
We asked the admin to give us a history on their club story…
“My love for the Honda brand started when my dad bought a brand new Honda CR-V, alongside this I had seen the Civic ep3 Type R around and just really liked the look of them. In 2013, I finally purchased a stunning example from a local Dealer 2002 Nighthawk black ep3 type R with 60 k and still have it now. After running various other car clubs, I decided to start my own club after visiting Japfest Donington in 2014, hence Hondalifestyle UK was born in 2014. Wev’e been online for over 5 years with over 2000 members. We have a very well established group of followers, that attend regular major shows such as Japfest Silverstone and Donington and previously Rockingham every year for the past 5 years.
The club is very well known throughout the Honda community, its very family driven, we have an aim not just for modified cars but also the standard and we welcome everyone no matter what they drive with followers on Instagram all over the world. It’s an honour to be asked to be part of the 35th Honda Anniversary feature.
Thanks also to my awesome admin team, Dan, Charlotte and Matthew!”

25 Years of the Honda Integra
In celebration of 25 years of the Honda Integra, we are working in association with the Integra Type R Owners Club to put together a display to commemorate this infamous Honda anniversary!
The founder of the club, Drew, is excited about the anniversary display…
‘Founded In 2002 the ITR DC5 Club was formed to share the admiration and first hand experiences of this outstanding Type R model. After the exceptional DC2 ceased production in 2001 its successor had huge boots to fill… thankfully the DC5 didn’t disappoint with many journalists touting it as a step above its predecessor! Nearly 2 decades on and the buzz surrounding this brilliant car has remained strong. Drop by the anniversary stand at Japfest this year and see for yourself!’
