Honda ready for #carfest South
· #carfest South kicks off on Friday at Laverstoke Park Farm
· Honda’s halo sports car, the NSX to be on display

Honda (UK) is heading to #carfest South this Friday for a weekend of cars, bikes, music, fun and food at Laverstoke Park Farm. Central to its stand at the charity fundraising #event for BBC Children in Need will be the recently launched NSX.

Last seen at Goodwood Festival of Speed, where it made its UK debut, this will only be the second time the 191mph sports car has been seen in public in the UK.

As well as showing off its halo sports car, #honda will have a bigger presence ever before as it is sponsoring the central entertainment stage with its cars sharing the spotlight with the music makers.

Raising vital funds for BBC’s Children In Need charity via a family-oriented, high-octane blend of fast and exotic cars, celebrity guests and live music from some of the hottest acts around, #carfest is the brainchild of Radio 2 presenter Chris Evans.

Honda (UK) Events Manager Helen Turner said: “CarFest North was a roaring success for #honda – the stand was swamped and the My First Licence, ATV Experience and Lawnmower Challenge were fully booked the entire weekend. We are fully expecting more of the same at #carfest South this weekend and are very much looking forward to it!”

Also on display will be the complete range of vehicles each with a family fun activation, including the Type R sleeping lion, the CR-V emoji challenge, HR-V singalong as well as the Jazz Macarena, last seen at the Goodwood Festival of Speed at the end of June.

For fans of two wheels, celebrating the 30th anniversary of the first of four consecutive Paris-Dakar victories, #honda will be showing off the latest incarnation of its iconic Africa Twin adventure bike. Exemplifying Honda's sporting credentials across the board, Africa Twin will sit alongside the exotic MotoGP bike for the road, the RC213V-S.

Five to 11-year-olds can enjoy My First Licence: a mini-motorbike taster session that introduces young non-riders to the exciting world of motorcycling. Riding restricted 50cc #honda CRF50 bikes in a safe, controlled and fully supervised environment complete with helmets and kneepads, the experience culminates in the presentation of their own special licence.

The ATV Experience on Honda’s TRX90 continues the fun-yet-educational theme for the 12-15 age group giving them the inside line on throttle control, slaloming, overcoming obstacles and balance, while the over 16s can try the full-size TRX420.

The ride-on lawnmower challenge is also available for 16-year-olds and above, and this promises competitive, yet hilarious, head-to-head racing around a timed garden course where lane control and garbage-grabbing skills will be the order of the day.
