Good news! :D I have corresponded with the Honda Institute and the UK's first Honda Insight Owners Day will take place on Friday 5th August.

I am meeting the guys at Honda in the next couple of weeks to decide on the days programme but it will include some or all of the following:

A tour of the Honda Institute and presentation of what they do
A presentation of the history of Honda and its products
Some Honda product demos
A presentation and demo of the technology behind Insight
An Insight quiz (with a Insight-related prize provided by me)
Hopefully a presentation by the Honda UK Product Development team about the IMAS/Insight 2

I was pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm of the Honda UK contact:

"Wow! Yes we would love to have the Insight Owners Club visit the Honda Institute. We are always very happy to show off our facilities and to talk about Honda's fantastic technology. What you have requested is right up our street and I would be happy to have a face to face meeting to discuss details. Could you tell me, would they be bringing their vehicles? We have a very large workshop and it would be great to have fleet of Insights on display. The charge for the numbers you have requested would be only £20:00 per head (including lunch) and I can assure you we have experts on the Insight technology and the trip would be very worthwhile for you. I look forward to hearing from you."

As you can see there is a £20 fee, which includes a proper lunch. I am willing to pay this for the first 10 Insight drivers and their co-pilots that sign up, but I would be grateful for any reimbursements on the day! :)

When I have more details on the programme for the day I will let you know. The Honda Institute is in Colnbrook, Slough - just off the M4/M25, near Heathrow. Please post if you have any queries or suggestions and also to confirm that you and your Insight can attend.

Yep I'd be interested Citrus. Not too far from where I live either.

From Honda UK's point of view I doubt they've ever had a large group of Insights together, so they could perhaps make some PR spin about collective fuel savings.

Do any of you folks live in Chiswick? I been down there a couple of times in the last week and saw a green Insight near the park and a red one parked up on the High Road. Before that I think I've only seen one other Insight out and about.

Out of interest how many UK Insight owners are registered on InsightCentral?

Sulphur Man - green as in the citrus colour. It's just strange to see two Insights in a week. Prior to that I've only ever seen one - a blue one parked up in Tetbury, Gloucestershire

Just looked at the location – I’m barely going to get the engine warm (4 miles). So I'll probably cut it fine and be wearing a dressing gown with a cup of coffee on the dash…
