Was great to meet everyone, thanks for organising it all! I was hoping to pop some video and photos up of the group on the road (and Nigel being childish in front of a bunch of police at Yeovilton...), but unfortunately my dashcam bricked itself on the way home and wiped the SD card. Disappointing as I had some good runs down to the starting point along the A345 and back home out the back of Mere onto the A36.

I still have my spoiler, but thinking about it I haven't checked my hubcaps to see if anyone had levered the Gels off of them... ;) Nothing quite like being sat at lunch as people dissect your car for parts before you've even considered scrapping it! :D

I have to say that driving behind Nigel's GT86 making a racket, my engine/exhaust note and his harmonised beautifully! I think I asked you Nigel, but did you get that tuned to harmonise with an RX8 at full chat, or is it just happy coincidence?

Scott thanks everyone for their support, I might be able to convince him into an 8 as a first car now...

Had a good day with everyone on Sunday and nice to gain 2 new members too our little Group =D> =D> =D> =D>

I couldn't resist revving the nuts off the car with a Car Park full of Police especially when it was Private Land and they couldn't touch me :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well done to Azam and Claire organsing a fabulous day and location :kiss:

I finally got home at 9.45pm having had to pull over into a Lay-By on the A31 because twice I nodded off while driving back and was getting really dangerous :(

So roll on the next Drive Meet in August Boys and Girls :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: :arrow: :thumleft:

I must of just missed you all, I was originally planning on joining the drive (was my nephews birthday who lives local to Dorset the day before), but my girlfriend decided we should have a weekend away... Without the 8. We still went to fleet Air arm museum but got there about 11:45. Well worth looking around if you get chance!

Looks like everyone had a great time! Looked a bit wet?

Kinda jealous either way, would of loved to come out on Sunday but a 250+ mile round trip Mon/Tue took priority.

Lizzie and I look forward to August!
