MiMMS Honda Day Belgium 2018

The UK, the EU, and the Big Mike come together for the love of Honda

Like many of the greatest meets and shows across the globe, MiMMS Honda Day came from humble beginnings as a grassroots gathering. Around 2008, a group of Honda enthusiasts started spending time together at a local service station in London, and as the gathering grew, it became known as the South Mimms Honda Meet. Over the years the meet continued to grow so much that even after filling the main car park, as well as the accessory lots, there simply wasn't enough space to accommodate everyone - from here, MiMMS Honda Day was born.

Davinder Plaha, the creator of the show, is a hardcore Honda enthusiast and attends numerous shows and meets throughout the UK and Europe. Knowing the volume of Hondas across the pond, Dav decided to start MiMMS Honda Day Belgium Edition in 2017. Now in its second year, the Belgium event plays host to a massive variety of Honda chassis and build styles from all over Europe. Hundreds of enthusiasts drove and transported their Hondas countless miles (many of which did so through hours of rain) from the UK, France, Germany, Holland, Luxembourg, and of course, Belgium, not just to put their cars on display but to spend time together in Brussels, Belgium.

Dav uses the MiMMS gatherings as a way to keep the enthusiasts close-knit and connected to the Honda community worldwide. I had the honor of witnessing this as I flew over from the United States to host and judge the show and witness the diehard Honda community from across the globe firsthand.

This red and white Honda JAZZ duo (Honda City in some regions) with opposing colored MOTOCOMPO's in the hatch had everyone in awe.

The Type R badge is abundant in Belgium with, not surprisingly, a few chassis that U.S. enthusiasts were never privy to, including the DC5 Integra Type R and the FK2 Civic.
