Big Scottish Road Trip 2019 - 6-8 September

Post by warpc0il » Wed Nov 14, 2018 9:56 pm

I don't know if there's going to be Big Scottish Road Trip 2019 but, based on the successes of the North Coast 500 rallies of previous years, I'd be surprised if there wasn't.

This may whet your appetites...

I went on the last 3 (2015, 2016 and 2018) and they were the best thing I've done in the RX-8 in the 12 years since I bought it. Anybody hesitating when it does come up - stop hesitating and get your name down. :sign:

Sorry Graham I don't think so, as it's a separate organisation from the RX-8OC and a bit like the Unofficial UK RX-8 Owners Club Facebook Group :!:

I dare say even if there is nothing official from the club/events team, dates and other details might still be posted up here by any club members who are in the FB group - I do believe that anybody interested in going will be made very welcome, you don't have to be on FB.

@CUNUS Probably best not to include you email address in posts, especially outside the members-only section, as web-bots trawl forums for email addresses to spam and spoof.

Hi CUNUS
Ask to join the Facebook Group "Scottish RX8 Owners Club" using the link in GSB's post (I'll quote that below to make it easier to find) and when you are accepted the info about the road trip is in the other link ... they will be going from 6th to 8th September and the advice is to book accommodation (Ullapool for the night of Friday 6th, Wick for the night of Saturday 7th) asap if you are going.

For those going up from the south, on past events we have stayed at the Travel Lodge in Falkirk on the Thursday and Sunday nights - it does mean a very early start on the Friday to get to the meeting/start point in the B&Q car park in Inverness on the Friday morning.
I have added the dates to the thread title now.
