Obviously you can go in any car, you just can’t be “on display” in a non pre circa 2004 car

R3 is just an rx8 with bits bolted on. Structurally it's the same car. As are the other editions.
But by that logic you could say an RX-8 is just an MX-5 NC with different subframes, body and engine. I guess they will have to draw the line somewhere.
Not really, j must disagree. The shell of an R3 and the other models is an RX8. If I was to take the lights, bumpers/aero, wheels off the R3 then it looks just like a standard RX8. Yes you could say the suspension different etc, but if I unbolted those parts it's just an RX8 and 99% of people would say that's an RX8 shell if shown it. They wouldn't go it's an MX5. I would assume that 95% of the parts of you broke it up to every nut and bolt used would be the same as what rolled off the factory in 2004 cars.

As long as your model of car production was commenced in 2004 or before then you can display it. Malcom’s post above is quite clear.
The RX8 model car started with the S1 and finished with the R3 every special edition in between still qualifies as an RX8.
I am sure that Will as the originator of this topic and interim EC will clarify everything soon.

I appreciate that these posts are a bit of fun but rather than make jokes why doesn’t one of you actually make contact with the organisers and seek clarification that post 2004 RX8s are eligible to display as the models manufacture meets the requirement of commencing manufacture in 2004 or earlier.
It seems clear to me from Malcolm’s post above that all RX8s are eligible but other people are clearly not certain hence my previous post and thus one suggesting someone seeks clarification.
Apologies if I keep repeating myself.

If you read back Chris, one of my first posts was asking for the Events Team to clarify after Malcolms post, which I also interpret as all RX8 models, so we can book a Club stand. Which then started the disagreements with my interpretation and the odd fun post as you have quoted. Though I would turn and buy given malcolms statement, via mine/yours/his interpretation, I would not like to advise others to buy tickets to turn up and be turned away without this clarification on models of a production car.

I have read back thanks Drew, hence my post. I see Will has taken up the mantel so to speak to seek clarification on this matter.

Well on the plus side they got back to me fast, and knew their stuff.
Much to my surprise, officially they wouldn't allow the Series 2/R3's to display!

Now, if you turned up in an R3 with a ticket, whether they'd know or care is a separate issue, but it'd be at your own risk!
