Mowing the grass out the front this afternoon and was passed by three RX8's :shock: a VR, a WB and a White 40th Anniversary.

There were also a massive number of MX5s etc with their tops down and more bikes than I've seen in years.

The sun was shining and it's the first weekend after 1st April, so I assume a hell of a lot of vehicles have just come off winter SORN :roll:

Less than a minute after pulling in to the drive in mine, I heard the distinctive note of a rotary, looked to the road and sure enough one was driving past, Galaxy Grey.
That's my total seen since owning one up to 2.

Went all the way to Antigua via Gatwick and home again and saw 1 Black RX8 'ST57..' about 30 seconds before I pulled up on my driveway back at home. None in Antigua but the roads really weren't suitable - some were more pothole than surface though they did have the graders and rollers out on some bits so they're getting better, 'til the next hurricane hits.
I was in Antigua in February and saw one! Seriously!
