Cruise/Meet

Post by absolutewankel » Thu Jan 24, 2013 1:02 pm

Is anyone keen for a cruise/meet around glenelg/brighton/henley beach? How does Saturday 26th Feb sound?

Just thought it would be great to get a dozen or so RX-8s all together and compare rides - more would be better.

If anyone else has any suggestions/preferences/times/dates/locations please feel free to make them.

Cheers.

Would be good, but this weekend is tight, Sunday lunch @ the Greenman in Ashbourne if anyone is passing through!
Horrible roads up there.

Note that my proposed date was Saturday 26 February. Not this weekend - weird that the 26th is a Saturday on two consecutive months but I'm also busy thus weekend.

Anyone keen for feb let me know

Cheers.

Hi, my name is absolutewankel and I'm a retard.

I would like to suggest SATURDAY 23 FEBRUARY.

...I was obviously reading my Mayan Calendar.

Once again, if anyone else has any suggestions/preferences/times/dates/locations please feel free to make them.

There would be a better turnout if it was a Sunday, as a lot of people work on Saturdays. Traffic is better too:wink:

I was looking organising something soon along the lines of,

Sunday xx/xx
10 a.m meet Pooraka Karts
Depending on numbers, book a group session (Maybe Sprint or Grand Pix format $65-$75 pp)
Depart there at 11:30'ish and head somewhere for a chat/cold beer/counter meal via some twisties of course!.(Gorge rd to Gumeracha pub? or Montecute/Mount Lofty scenic to Norton Summit Hotel?)

hey guys, I've been off the forums for a long time.. but looking into getting back into it all.. mods/meets etc.. so I'm keen for a meet! feb works at this stage!!

Lil intro (sorry to hijack)

Names Jason, got an 04 VR manual that looks bog stock.. but has a custom pod/ram air filter. custom 3" mild steel mid pipe with hi-flo cat into a knightsports street upgrade titanium exhaust.. hopefully (finance minister depending) will have it lowered 20mm on some stiffer springs by the time the meet comes around... Oh and i live in the NE suburbs... so i frequent chain of ponds and gorge rd lobethal etc..

will be good to meet some fellow rx8 owners... 'cause 4 years ago there weren't many on the forums :( haha

cheers guys

I looks like Sunday is the preferred day. How does the 24th Feb suit people?

I'm keen for a cruise to show off the beasts to all, if people would prefer a country drive I'm up for that too. It looks like greenhil road is most central for everyone (from what I can gather on this forum).

We could do greenhill road up, freeway back (or vice versa) and finish in the city or down at the bay.

Also happy with the suggestion of a pub meal somewhere.
