Title: RX3 coupe at Simply Japanese, Beaulieu

I had every intention of taking a lot of pics but got slightly distracted   :oops:   I had just papped a Mitsubishi Sapporo and then went all peculiar having been confronted by this   :love4:

Just sitting under a tree, minding it's own business and being largely ignored!

The owner has a really interesting background, having worked at Elford Engineering, served a Mazda apprenticeship and worked alongside a certain Tim White.

Great to see Chris out at another show with his jaw dropping RX-3

I didn't manage to speak to Chris at Castle Combe when he showed his RX-3, so really pleased to be able to spend some time chatting to him at Beaulieu on Sunday. His car is simply stunning and I was glad to be able to broker a deal with the  Beaulieu safety staff for him to relocate to a better position on the RX-8 OC stand where his car attracted more passing traffic. His car seemed to have people around it for the rest of the day, rightly so!

Worthy of a few more pics!

Surprised, and pleased, to see Linas turn up from the IOW with his FD. Managed to get him onto the RX-8 OC stand too, so we had an RX-3, 1st and 3rd Gen RX-7's and RX-8's to display to the crowds.
