Ten years in the automotive enthusiast circle is a long time no matter how you look at it. That sentiment rings especially true in regard to events. Sure, there are some show and race series that have been around for a decade, but they’re not pulling anywhere near the numbers that Honda Day is.
Javier Ortega is the brains behind the operation and is no stranger to organizing mega shows. He’s been putting together large-scale events since 1996, and his track record speaks for itself. A fan of Hondas for a number of years, there’s no mistaking where his love lies. He adds, “I have to say that the automotive event that I’m most proud of is Honda Day. It targets a brand of cars that I love, and the energy around it is an incredible feeling!”
Now in its 10th year, Honda Day has undoubtedly eclipsed all expectations and cemented itself as the largest Honda-specific event in the world. A tall feat when you consider the number of blockbuster meets and shows gaining momentum and taking place all over the globe.
Old Bridge Township Raceway Park, better known as “E-Town,” played host to the two-day event that included a packed car show, intense drag action, and well over 20,000 attendees throughout the weekend. Vendors, models, action on the main stage, and anything else you can imagine filled the weekend celebration. As usual, the surrounding streets were once again overflowing throughout most of the day as enthusiasts who didn’t camp out or show up at the break of dawn inched their way into the venue for a glimpse at this historic event. It goes without saying that the tradition will continue and you can keep tabs on the next event via the Honda Day website. Don’t miss out!
