Thanks Chris - that just put a smile on my face to hear the repeated doppler 'vraaaap' as they all passed by. =D>

Zeeyoda: we don't mind a couple of non rotary cars but not too many as it takes away from being a club for a certain type of car. We also ask if folk with other types of car understand we'll want some pictures with only club cars in. But ultimately all are welcome and sure everyone will have a great time.

Yeah that's what I was thinking too in regards with pictures. Tbh I'm pretty certain I'll be going, will ring around some hotels. I've only had my car 3 weeks, driven about 250 miles, then it's been off the road until my insurance sorts itself out. So I'm itching to get behind the wheel.

It's an excellent weekend mate I'll be arranging other events throughout the year including monthly meetings, car shows, drives out. If you go on booking.com you can book for free and usually cancel for free should something happen. Also search "Scottish RX8 owners" on Facebook it's the page I also run.

Here's my footage from the 2015 run :) (Sound quality was rubbish hence the music over the top)

I should have the Applecross footage from last year somewhere too.

Ben
Regrettably I'm out.
Of all the weekends to have to attend a wedding it had to be this one.
That's the 3rd year running I've had to pull out of this!
Some things are destined not to be I guess!

We need to start a convoy list.

We are driving up from Surrey on Thursday directly to Inverness.

Epic Road Trip. Looking forward to this.
