First rotary I saw was also Ro 80, back in the very early 70's, when I was still at school and trying to earn some cash as a petrol pump attendant at a local Shell forecourt. I can clearly remember that customer and his car as he was very proud of it. The only other car I can remember vividly was the garage owner's car, a Jag, as I was fascinated by the dual filler caps  :)

Ah, the memories of the Green Shield Stamp dispenser machine and the awful, fiddly manual credit card imprinter come flooding back  ;)

Oh, and there was that Mini Van I filled up, only to discover the owner had a hole in the fuel tank and we ended up with a river of petrol on the forecourt  ;D

The garage is still there, still Shell, but completely redeveloped. No longer do the staff stand in the freezing cold in winter in the little hut set in the middle of the pumps with a totally inadequate electric oil heater! Life was tough back then, but the 2 shillings an hour came in handy  ;)

So sorry to hear that Jon, and just as things were looking up on the health front too  :(

 :13: Great news Jon  :)

Next meet is Tuesday 15 Jan 2019. For further details, keep an eye on the RX-8 OC topic over here;

All Mazda rotary enthusiasts welcome  :great:

I've just spoken with Aston at Essex Rotary. He's got a customer with an RX-8 (who is not on the forum; yet anyway  ;) ) who booked his first ever trackday for 19 Dec (as title). However, Aston has advised him that his car isn't up to track work at this time and so the guy has asked if someone could make him an offer and take the place from him. Aston asked if I would post it up on here.

Details on the MSVT website here:

I'm assuming he paid the £119 price shown, but is open to offers, given the short notice.

If you are interested, please call Aston on 07880 913505 as he has the guy's details.

 :D  :D  :D

A few pics of my car on track at Brands Hatch last Friday. VERY wet in the morning, to damp by mid afernoon. I was extremely impressed with my first wet trackday on UniRoyal Rainsport 3's - amazing grip on wet racing line.

Oh pants.......Casey is gonna hate me !

 ??? ??? You really must learn how to post pics with a max pixel width of 1024  ;)

Sorted  :)

BTW, I'm certain the welds are much better than I could do. Never had the time to learn to weld  :(

Either my eyesight has improved dramatically or those pics are far too big!

Sorted that for you Jamie  :13:

The forum doesn't resize pics, so anything wider than 1024 pixels is usually a problem.

I'm been following this thread for some time with great interest. A really fascinating project, and I'm in total awe at your range of fabrication skills :icon_thumleft:
