Huge thanks from me to everyone who came along yesterday. It made the work for the organisers feel worthwhile when the day goes well and we have good feedback. I certainly had a great day looking around and chatting to people on the stand.

It was fantastic to get so many Mazda rotary models represented on the stand, from Clive's RX-4 through to the RX-8 R3.

Our pretty good timeline display of the RX-4 through the FB, FC and FD models managed to attract the attention of the show's commentator, Tim Watson.

Somehow, I got volunteered to be the spokesman for the stand, being interviewed by Tim, who is producing a video of the day. Hopefully, some of the stuff I spouted (hopefully mostly accurate!) will find it's way into the final edit. It's amazing how your brain goes dead when a mic is suddenly thrust in your face though ;)

If the video is any good, I'll post a link here. If it's rubbish, I'll go hide somewhere!

I have some photos which I'll post up soon, in the meantime, here's a taster.

But again, thanks to everyone who came along to make it such a great day out  :icon_thumleft:

Was a great day,

That white FD was really nice.

I followed it in, thought I had a problem with the scooby for a short while but it was his exhaust popping on lift off.

Sounded great
Its just Rotors and GRP

Yup it has some fantastic lines !

I even had the pleasure of climbing in the hot seat.

I dunno if it's gripping on to the skinny steering wheel, but it oozes a certain charm that you just don't get anymore.
