Don,t forget to brim your tanks tonight ready for tomorrow.
There is a Texaco with 98 Ron about 2 Mls from the hotel that you will go past on the right.
RX8's are the fastest in the snow even with semi- slicks :wink: :) =D> =D>

I hope everyone got home safely.

It's a testament to the RX-8 that, despite one minor issue with Sam's car, every one of our typically 10 year old cars (with a few younger ones) performed so well over one (some two) full-on trackdays plus many 100's of road miles without problems - well if you don't count consumables like pads and disks :wink:

Having spoken to Pete yesterday, it seemed a good idea to start a new topic to cover the event itself. I'm hoping we've got lots of pics, videos and stories to tell over the coming days (once we've recovered!). New topic over here;

http://www.rx8ownersclub.co.uk/forum/vi ... 54#p968554

I will lock this thread now, but PM me if you feel you need to post anything here, rather then the new topic. I will move over the latter posts in here (Dover and onwards) to the new thread in due course.
