A hazard perhaps of working again in retail Nigel! I am sure if there is the slightest chance then you will take it and be there.

Seen events move and then have rivals in the past and both fail so I can see a potential mess on the horizon and the big question may well become that if Coombe hold a rival which one will be the one to go to :roll:

I made the mistake of looking at how much I have spent since buying my car, Thankyou not MS Money, and in terms of the cars initial cost, including fuel its 4 X that!! Ouch! Especially when the cost of the parts probably equals the level of depreciation!

But I am not complaining, owning an RX8 is great fun and I have met some great new people through the club.

Well done Nigel
Thanks for doing that :thumright:

KEEP CONFIRMING ABOUT STAND AND TRACK PLEASE GUYS (quick as possible)

Thank you for your patience as we work through the names list
please feel free to shout at me via pm if your name doesn't appear fast enough ;)
We are trying to go for 2 track sessions initially but if the demand and swift response is there we will try for more
The sessions are for 40 cars so it's unlikely we will have dedicated sessions just for us
It is going to be the National circuit (We will put a map up when we have time)
We will update our progress as and when
Regards
Pete
