If I've managed to fix the boost leak on the TT then I'll be up for that (as long as you don't mind me tagging along)

Would anyone else be up for doing another Sunday drive in December? (obviously subject to CV19 restrictions)
I think the arrangements and approx route from last time worked well - meeting at ~10:30.

Post up which date(s) you are free and we can go with the majority.

Sunday 6th December

Too late for that. They've already started coating the roads around Ipswich this last week. :evil:

Seriously?!

We had the gritter lorries out last week doing practice runs in West Suffolk. And there were three mornings when Mrs Smutty had to scrape frost off the windscreen of the French runaround when she took some of the tribe to the school bus. But nothing that warranted real gritting...

Sorry I haven't responded earlier. Not sure if I can commit to any Sundays before Christmas at the moment. If a date is decided and there are less than 6 already on the list, I'll see if circumstances allow me to tag along at short notice :D

Hi all.

We are going to go with Sunday 20th December.
Similar arrangements to last time...

10:30am meet at the BP services at the Colchester park and ride / stadium junction (CO4 5HH).
We will take a similar route, although I will try to change the final section and avoid crossing the A120...
Finishing at the Olivers Plants garden centre where, depending on CV19, we can get a socially distanced coffee.

Anyone is welcome (doesn't have to be an RX-8!)

At least it's not all of Essex. Areas South and West of the meet. Most of the previous route is still in Tier 2 as well. I don't know which tier the garden centre cafe will fit into, it looks close to the faultline. They may not know themselves yet whether they'll be open.

The garden centre is in Tier 3 and so the cafe is closed. If you folks still fancy the drive tho I'm up for it.

Well that's settled. Costa takeaway on Sunday it is!

I'll have done a day trip oop North on Saturday to see the in laws with the children. Mrs Smutty's grandma is 97 and still going strong so you can imagine we all want to see her. I hate the mummy bus so I take the RX8 and tend to give them a 30 minutes head start and then overtake them 20 miles or so from the destination.

Tell you what - petrol up there is flipping cheaper than down here.

Thanks for the update Haydn. I will factor that in to the route and find us a different ending destination with car park and takeaway coffee then :thumleft:

I'm taking the 192 up north tomorrow so will bring the PZ to Essex on Sunday. Don't judge it too harshly - it is a work in progress.

Does this new Tier 4 make a difference to Sunday?
