This video continues the scene, where I let Carl pass and try (and fail) to keep up with him :( . But it was fun trying - you can hear my road tyres complaining at every corner :lol:

Not just "road tyres" Malcolm but RainSports, that had been hanging on like limpets on the wet track in the morning but were clearly struggling when the track dried off.

Dunno what you're talking about Dave. My tires were struggling all day not just the wet. Oh wait that was me. I can't believe you guys got up to that pace. All I saw were continuous blue flags ImageImage

And I do think we should get a peek of Ian and Daves awards in their new homes. Ian was completely unaware he was getting his btw. :thumright:
Nigel had given me a heads-up that I was going to be given something in recognition for my work as Spin Doctor, which was all part of his arm-twisting to get us to brave the Irish Sea.

You can imagine my reaction to being presented with a sticker, during the first part of the proceeding #-o
20200303_102924.jpg
Let's just say that I wasn't that impressed, despite Adam's skills with the vinyl cutter.

This then made it even more of a surprise to later be given the engraved glass plaque; that now has pride of place in what the Irish Rotary guys call my Mazda shrine :D

Between us Pauline and I took about 140 photos, mainly on the Saturday, on phones and my DSLR.
Taking a quick peek as they import onto my desktop, some don't look too bad and even the technically poor ones might be the only record of you or your car on track, at least until the "official" photos are released.

I'll thrift out the total rubbish and then dump the rest on a Google drive.

120 made it through the rough cut and it's a very mixed bag.

No apologies for quality. Let me just say that you're more likely to be in the frame and in-focus, if you were hitting the apex's ;)

You should be able to access them all here

could someone please confirm that the link is working - thanks

Due to fat finger trouble, my photos on the Google drive were only 1024x.
Now replaced with 2048x, which is actually 4 times the size.

Nice collection of photos Dave. :thumleft:

Thanks for taking a shot of me in my noddy high viz :oops: At one point Alan wandered over to me and said he was getting lens envy. I chuckled, slightly pleased with myself. Right up until I glanced over his shoulder to see you strolling off with what looked like a 400 or 500mm plus monopod. There is always someone with a bigger lens than you :D

I would like to add my thanks to the committee and everyone involved in organising this weekend...I know how much effort these things take.
Like Stewart I had reservations about the track beforehand being a bit of mickey mouse kart track but it was anything but and I had really good fun out there, as evidenced by the 'take it easy' sign the marshal gave me :D The incident that prompted this is at ~3:50 in the video. Obviously this wasn't because I was trying to chase down the car ahead as I'm not competitive :twisted:

Was really good to catch up with old friends once again, sorry to those that I didn't get to chat to. I would also like to thank everyone for welcoming Lisa into the fold, especially Rachel, Caren & Sarah. However I am a little concerned that she keeps sending me links to RX-8s for sale asking if this is a good one for her to buy!!

Oh dear, seems that Lisa has caught RX8itis! You “incident” was similar to mine at Cadwell on Monday when I put my outside wheel onto the grass cornering, well done in catching it.

2020 Annual Meet Weekend & AGM *Feedback, Photos & Video*

Post by GreySilver Beast » Wed Mar 04, 2020 4:20 pm

Well finally catching up on the forum after the Annual Meet Weekend =D> =D> =D> =D>

So looks like we all had a fantastic time together and was great seeing new faces as well as the usual suspects =D>

Great seeing so many cars on the track and makes all the time and effort that Malcolm, Chris and I put in to then see smiling faces =D> =D>

As Dave said, I rang him and Pauline up to give them a heads up of the RX-8OC plans and that the Committee wanted him to come over for an Award to be given for all his hard work over the years within the Club :P

So with John's advice we decided to throw the scent off for a while and present the 3 Stickers that I had specially made for him from AG Vinyl Stickers and then John would then call Dave back up to collect his Glass Engraved Award :thumleft:

Hope Dave has forgiven me by now [-o< [-o< [-o< [-o<

The rest of the Evening went very well and you all seem to enjoy the New Raffle Format this year 8)

When it came to the AGM there was sudden change to the Room that we were supposed to be using due to it being too small #-o , which is why we all ended up in the same room we had the night before with round tables :!:

It was nice of Ranjan to loan his car to Ollie and Dave, but it's a great pity the car came to a sad end of breaking down once again on the track :( and then not knowing what to do with the car afterwards :(

It was then left to me to ring Ranjan in New York, hence why I didn't take part in the Photoshoot after lunch :x and then afterwards try and sort out collection :roll: , but with Bigpete being on Holiday, the car was then dumped at The Three Sisters Track with the Keys being left at the Office :!: :!:

As Ranjan said to me on Monday Evening, someone could of suggested calling the RAC or AA to collect the car and then return it back to the Birmingham City Airport Hanger for him :roll:

Anyway once again thank you for all coming to this years Annual Meet Weekend =D> =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

So the pictures I took are at the links below. If I missed you, it was not personal. I shot everything that passed me, so if you are not here it will be either because my brain surgeons hands let me down & it was a blurry disaster, or I was not trackside when you were out. Check out warpc0il's pictures and Ainmhidh might have some coming as well. [-o<

https://www.clockworknetphotography.com ... -meet-2020

I have tagged them with the forum name of the owner, so if you want to pick only a particular car, go here:

https://www.clockworknetphotography.com/tags.php

There were a couple of cases where I was not certain so I have identified:

Image
as REF

Image

as shroom

Image

and sadly I could not identify the owner of this car.

If any of them are wrong let me know and I will correct. Cheers :thumleft:

Re: 2020 Annual Meet Weekend & AGM *Feedback, Photos & Video*

Brilliant set of photos Stewart. Much better than the MSVT photographer at Cadwell who took most of his pictures at an arty farty 30' angle which made them look ridiculous and also none were as close as your image look.
Very pleased.

:oops: I can be prone to a bit of 'drama angle' 'n all, so if there any where I have overdone it, let me know as I can likely straighten them out. ;)

As Ranjan said to me on Monday Evening, someone could of suggested calling the RAC or AA to collect the car and then return it back to the Birmingham City Airport Hanger for him :roll:


Events Team
I thought he had a team to collect it and it was in hand? I genuinely thought it was all sorted or I would have suggested a friend who transports cars could have collected it. However taking it on myself to do that without really knowing someone and their circumstances is a bit awkward?

Maybe a contingency plan should have been in order as its possibly one of the most unreliable RX8s on the forum Image I'm sure it's annoying but at the end of the day lending a car out is a big thing and it's just unfortunate.

Other than that I thought the annual meet and AGM was great. Will look forward to next years one. The track made me feel pretty sick going around and around but the organisation and stewards was perfect and really enjoyed ripping it around and letting Pat whizz past.

Did anyone else feel that it went way too fast! It was over in a flash. Thanks for all the efforts everyone put in and also everyone who came as it wouldn't be much fun without. Thanks for another great time out!

Cheers
Tom

Nigel and I of course followed the weekend with a 150 mile drive over to Cadwell Park and another early start on Monday morning to wrestle our cars around Cadwell.
What a challenging circuit that is!

So the pictures I took are at the links below. If I missed you, it was not personal. I shot everything that passed me, so if you are not here it will be either because my brain surgeons hands let me down & it was a blurry disaster, or I was not trackside when you were out.
The lower perspective of being trackside meant that you could get much better shots of the drivers and passengers, not just the cars.

This has to be my favourite.. :D
