First up, Huge thanks to each and every one of you for bringing your great cars for us to see to make this a real nice day.
However we have been shocked by other clubs reaction to just trying to give Mazda Enthusiasts a day out to share our passion for Mazda, however despite peoples best efforts to kill this event we had 50 Mazdaâ€™s with many different models attend.
As you will see below, â€œwhat in the hell is the matter with these nasty bitchy peopleâ€!
Strike 1, Lisa sent an invite to the Mazda 2, 3 and 6 forums which immediately led to a ban and a stroppy â€œstern warningâ€ e-mail tell her she had a cheek spamming â€œhis forumâ€ , It just could be this guy is just power mad --------------- the clue was in the signature (Will Power!)
Strike 2, I am told we had the normal couple of protagonists on the RX-7 FDUK club peddling their personal anti MRC issues to deter people from coming along, people who clearly need to go and get a life without trying to influence others, don't get me wrong though as this is very much a one way street as nobody at MRC has any problem with FDUK itself in any way.
Strike 3, this was the biggest one as it hurt the turn out and also hurt MRC financially.
A guy by the name of Ian Fleming from the main MX-5 Owners Club personally object to us calling the event a â€œMazda Dayâ€ to the Heritage Museum so he wrote to and phoned again and again eventually bulling Gaydon staff to remove the Mazda Day and the advert from the Gadon Events calendar and without even telling us converted it to a Mazda â€œRotary Clubâ€ Day, which effectively stopped many other Mazda owners who may have come along as they would not have known the event was even being held!
OK, I have always accepted that the MX-5 club have no wish to play with non MX-5 clubs but to then interfere with another clubs event!!
With all the above said,
Special thanks must go to the RX8OC who not only supported this event, but also that its members are bright enough and adult enough to realise that thereâ€™s no need for problems between the two clubs as we all share the same Rotary Passion
