A small group of lucky enthusiasts were invited to the Honda Headquarters in Torrance, California for an exclusive S2000 event. On September 12, 2015, the S2ki community held the third and final S2ki Homecoming event. The event began in 2007 as a tribute to the Honda S2000 and its Project Leader, Shigeru Uehara. The second event was held in 2010 and since then plans have been in the works for Homecoming 3. This year, the 250 enthusiasts that have been waiting since 2010 caravanned from Irvine, California to Torrance, where they were given access to the secret Honda museum, which houses some of the rarest vehicles from Honda’s history. Additionally, attendees participated in a raffle for prizes that included the top JDM and US-made aftermarket parts for the S2000. The event ended on a bittersweet note as Uehara confirmed his plans to retire. The S2ki community bid him farewell as the final Homecoming event drew to a close.
