Hi all,

We're usually in Dorset about once a month during the Summer so may be able to attend depending on the dates :)

The road from Weymouth to Westbay is awesome :twisted:

Cloverleaf159, where about in Dorset are you?

RX8s are few and far between around these parts. I could be up for a meet.

ok so far we have people in wiltshire and north dorset but then some on the coast too...... it seems.

march sounds good as long as the weather gets better and some of these roads get time to dry out and fallen trees sorted. around these parts some have been cut down and just left by the side of the road

OMG indeed! :D

I've yet to spot an R3 in Gill. There is a red S1 always parked opposite the Barn Surgery and a dark coloured S1 has appeared at Milton school a couple of times recently but I've yet to meet either owner. I live at the Peacemarsh end of town.

yeah i know of the s1 parked opp the barn surgery.. dont know the owner but they have had it a long time. Funny enough when i moved to gillingham from london some ten years ago i originally lived at yalbury wood way at peacemarsh end. Ive only had my R3 a month now and tbh the weather has been horrible so shes only been out a few times and its not my main car which is a civic type r. its my first rex . i actually now live just by the station side of town. how long you had your rex rob? i think i might have seen it but not 100%
