HondaEuroMeet 2010 | HEM#1
The first edition of the HEM took place on the Sunday 25th July 2010, in sunny Netherlands. The cars gathered up in front of the Fullcartuning shop, in which Adrien was an intern to complete his studies. The objective was to unite Honda lovers near and far. Around 300 cars showed up, some from far away (south & west of France...).
The people that were there enjoyed it, and really wanted to see a second edition in 2011.
HondaEuroMeet 2011 |HEM#2
Assisted by his childhood friend, Justin Poteau, Adrien created Brab's Events, to formalise and continue the Honda Euro Meet adventure. To change the concept of the event, Adrien teamed up with Mr. Frederic CAILLARD, owner of FC-Racing, that organizes Track Days.
From that day on, The HEM became a car meeting next to a race track, allowing participants to race their own car on the track ( after having signed up before hand ). The objective is the same : unite as many Honda fans as possible, not just for one day, but over a whole weekend.
Track addicts and first timers could now sign up to drive their car on the track, for a day or the weekend, under the professional supervision of FC-Racing. For those that just wanted to experience driving on a track, or that didn't want to sign up for a whole day, 20 minute sessions were available on site to just go and have some fun.
As first ever sponsor of the HEM, Fullcartuning did everything they could to help the young HEM team achieve this meeting.
This second edition was also the first year a dyno bench was at the event, to allow people to check out, for a small fee, the power and torque of their car.
Other activities were present for the first time : a car wash, music, various shops, and the famous french Magazine, Autoworks, dedicated to Japanese cars !
The HEM#2 saw almost 400 cars from all over France, and also Belgium, UK, The Netherlands, Switzerland and Italy.

The HEM CREW is a team of Honda enthusiasts, that worked hard to organize a meeting that was already awaited by all participants, that had been asking the dates of the next edition before the end of the previous one !
Fullcartuning is still in the game as are FC-Racing, Autoworks Magazine, the dyno, car wash ... The 3rd edition saw the arrival of a new shop: SLOWAY, french lifestyle.
Always music and the appearance of some activities such as meetbike contest, organized by Charly. The objective is to create a soapbox/tricycle/... equipped with at least one HONDA part.
For this edition, the team decides to buy an old Civic EC9 to have a "do it all" Honda for the event. She was baptized HEM Car. With a very low mileage of 300000kms, she was still there for the HEM#4.

HondaEuroMeet 2013 | HEM#4
This edition is a milestone in the constant evolution of the HEM. The usual bench power of the two previous years, which was a fixed bench, is now replaced by a 100% mobile version, unique in Europe , created by the company PVJ Systems.
The Saturday evening is marked by various activities, always around the Honda brand, next to the car podium from Val Podium Hainaut, that supplies the sound system and entertainment. Nearby, a “show & shine” was organized, where the best cars are parked. The small “shopping center” is still there, with some new shops. Of course, the track is still open, car wash, dyno and others…
This fourth edition was unfortunately marked by rainy weather on Sunday , which discouraged many. Without this rain, we would have exceeded 1000 cars !
However, we managed to gather 850 cars from all over France, Belgium, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Germany and Italy !
