Hey guys,
I'm a prospective buyer from Herts, would love to come down, see your cars & get some advice. I probably can't stick around too long but should be there for 7:30 :)

I'll be there around 7ish - when you drive in take the first left in the car park up to the top / back and then along to the left where there should be plenty of room for us to park together.

That was a fab evening - great to have so many RX-8s (even if we were lacking a bit of colour! :wink: ) Haven't had such a good laugh in ages - still thinking about tattoos, piercings, whips and chains... :shock:

A great evening with interesting conversation - not ALL centered around our Rotaries.

Cheers to all those who came, and making this a great success.

Really great to meet you all last night, had an amazing time.
Good to chat with others who actually have something positive to say about the rx8 :)

Please could one of you let me know when compression testing day will be held, really could do with getting mine checked over.

Look forward to seeing you all again soon
