Sunday 5th June Dorset/Somerset/Wiltshire

Hi Guys my names Azam and have owned many Alfas over the years.... I currently own an Alfa Gulietta Cloverleaf and a Mazda RX8 R3. I am actually a member of the RX8 owners club and part of their events team for Dorset/Somerset/Wiltshire and also Devon/Cornwall.

I would be more than happy if we can get the numbers to make it viable organise a meet for a Sunday in which we would meet up, go for a drive in a convoy along a route I would plan out, stop off for coffees. refreshments etc and then continue in the convoy to a nice coastal location where we could all enjoy a pub style meal and get to know each other a bit more. With the RX8's ive had 20 cars in a convoy before

It would be open to anyone who would like to come, and like the RX8 events I organise you wouldn't need to own an Alfa if you wanted to come as long as your a fan of the Marque.

So what I would suggest is if I could gain peoples interest in this. Possible meeting points I have used in the past are Salisbury and Shaftesbury to give you an idea. People could also join us during the route if you wish too. For example in some of the RX8 meets, people have joined in at the stop off point for refreshments (e.g Fleet air museum).

So if anybody is up for this just post here and I will compile a list and if WE GET ENOUGH INTEREST, I can start looking at a date.

1. CLOVERLEAF159 + Claire (Gillingham, Dorset)
2. AlfaBliss (Devizes)
3. Spiderman_Steve (Weymouth)
4. AnthonyJohn (Gillingham, Dorset)
5. GTA Jimbo (Tisbury)

Well I'm over in Devizes, would definitely be up for summit. I've kinda lost touch with everyone since moving out here.

I have been toying with the idea of approaching Weymouth & Portland Council to see if we can display our cars on the seafront like other car & motorcycle clubs do during the year. I even have contacts who can get preferable rates at the local caravan park. We could have a convoy and display over a weekend. Just a thought....
PS Dorset comes under the South Central banner on this forum

I tend to use the GT as an everyday car, (Stromboli Grey), I have Cup No. 50 which is a weekend 'toy', this is the same for the red 4C and the Spider.
Why not get in touch, perhaps we could meet ?

I am in Tisbury just outside Shaftesbury, so a good run out around Somerset, Wilts & Dorset sounds good.

The white 4C lives in Ansty just of the A30. It has now been wrapped in blue, red and white.

Lets see if we can get a few more names down before we sort anything out.

Cheers

I know Jim Price and Brett (both 147 GTAs) will be keen to join in if we can agree on a date.
