Just to let everyone know the meal is booked in for 1pm at the Half moon in Shaftesbury for Sunday 25th. I will put all the details up for the day in order once I've found a suitable place for a stop off point during the drive part. The original place I was going to use I visited and it doesn't have a very good exit point back onto the main road so have scrapped that idea.

Keep you all posted

For those of you that may have not seen this posted in the Members section... I have copied and pasted it here too :

Hi Guys……. Im am sorry to say but last week I let someone take My R3 off my hands and it now lives not far from a certain MR GSB

Yeah my time with her has come to an end.... I just felt at 8 years old and only doing 3000 miles a year in her , it was time to let someone else enjoy her... That and the itch to try something different now.. It was a fabulous nearly 5 years of ownership and its a car that made me join this car club and get involved.... and I am glad I did join.... There are some fabulous people in this Club.... SO the bottom line is , I might not have the RX-8 anymore but I will still be about and the Dorset and Somerset meets will continue as usual … There is no change there. The new owner is very happy with his new Ride and actually owned an R3 before , So I am sure after meeting him, it has gone to a great new home..... Never in my life have I questioned getting rid of a car so much in my life.... and I will admit part of me will still think have I done the right thing.. lol


In other news You might see that the Type R is up for sale too.... Funnily the two sales are not related in my reasoning, just the timing of it all has coincided.


So thats my news.... Thank you for reading..

Because of the sale of my R3 … I have the following for sale if anybody's interested and can bring along Sunday.

5l Trident 10w/50 semi synthetic professional oil.... £15

4 RX8 18" Standard size wheels with tyres fitted (but tyres must not be used on road) £30 I only bought them to stand the car on when I had the R3 wheels redone.…

2 rear arch protectors..... £10 that's the clear film panels that sit in front of the rear wheels.... I changed my R3 ones and bought a spare set .


First to say you want it, gets it...

Sorry to hear you sold the 8 mate!

In other news, I might not be able to make this meet in the end, the 8 has been suffering from really bad over heating issues recently, will be keeping an eye on it. If we do come along, we won’t be going balls out, nice and steady!

Ahh okay, it’s still a 40 minute drive from home to The pub!

It’s either a sticking thermostat or a split hose ‘somewhere’

Not a problem as Passenger Seat can slide forward still giving enough footwell space and then giving legroom for the passenger in the back =D>
