Thank you so much for the great great turnout today. Was amazing to see everyone and hear everyone's voices again after such a long time away because of Covid.

Was really nice to see some of the originals back today like Dan in Poole and amazing for Jazz and Emily to come down to Salisbury, just to say Hi. And of course Mark and Mandy making the long journey down too.

Was great seeing all the RX-8 s back together and watching them in the rear view mirror in convoy.

Hope you enjoyed the get together and the drive out. I certainly did.


Thanks again everyone.

Oh for pities sake this looks like a bloody amazing day, miffed to have missed it.

Who's got the quadrifoglio! :o Beautiful.

Everyone's cars look great. I had the windows open at work in the vain hope of catching the sound of braps on the breeze.

What a nice day we all had and a great turn out of cars too =D> =D> =D> =D>

Well done Azam for organising another great meet in these current times :kiss: plus also confusing all of us when you turned up in your New Toy :lol:

Thank you for the various photos posted up on here and Facebook =D> =D> =D> =D>

On a personnel level have been well and truly spoilt today :inlove: , having had Dan (HH), Jazz and Mark all at once :shock:

Shame didn't get a chance to talk to Tina today, but glad to see she was looking OK :snog:

I finally got home at 7.35pm, having stopped off for a nap ;) and averaged 40.9mpg today :lol:

Roll on the next one nearer Christmas :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft: :thumleft:

Given that the MX-5 was the least powerful car @ the meet how do people think it compared to the RX8s in terms of straight line performance :?:

BTW still had a quarter of a tank left when we got home :D
