    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    ...before heading off past the always scenic (not) Fawley Oil Refinery and home. When we got to the M27 it was a massive car park, so Ente set off back to London via the scenic route. Thanks for coming one and all, once again we enjoyed your company and look forward to the next run.

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    Thanks for organising DC - was good to see everyone. New forest was beautiful in the sun, and we didn't even run over any of the suicidal "chickens"!

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    Nice pics - weather held out for you too !

    Can't wait to see Ente's car in the flesh

    I know! It drives us nuts too! There MUST be some other owners in the area that could spare a day out.
    Where are you all?

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    Nice pics guys, thanks for sharing. Should have come myself really but had to watch the F1!

    Maybe next time, although if you were to organise a track day that would be even more interesting!!!

    Any more pics?

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    I think Ente and RichC may have some more photos..?

    RichJ, if you AND Monkey turn up together, I'm going to be WELL confused! ...(Your avatar)

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    Dont worry you'll tell us apart easily, I'll be the one flying on the pink cloud!

    I have some more, but I didn't want to flood the place without giving them time. I don't know if Ente has even reached home yet, looking at the traffic on the M27 yesterday And Rich was dog-sitting so may not have gotton his pics downloaded yet...

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    Hopefully get some down loaded this evening - Julie took some nice action ones of the dashboard and tax disc!!

    Great day though - good to see everyone and a good route - although how we all missed that manic 4x4 driver coming at full speed the other way round the bend I'll never know.

    Was fine for me
    Probably boat-show traffic going back to Nodnol.
    PS - There was an Optimax sale in Poole...95.9p/litre

    Glad you enjoyed it as much as we did. We were really lucky with the weather AND the Grockles! Thinking heads on now for what to do next - Halloween and Karting were both suggested....

    And the colours - all a bit monochrome at the moment - need some reds (Boothy?) and blues...

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    hey guys i was so gutted i couldn't make it!

    in my haste getting there i clipped the kerb going round a corner... no damage to the rim, but broke the tyre side wall (doh).

    all i can say is that porsche assistance is really good, but the lack of a spare is a real pain.

    glad everyone had a great day ( i looked at tbe blue sky with envy!) and thanks to dreamcar for organising.

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    Ouch! Shame you couldn't make it, but look forward to seeing you at the next one.

    .



    Really sorry to hear that - could have been much worse of course. If you want to do the run,send me a PM it is no trouble doing it again - any excuse for a drive.

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    Cheers!!! May take you up on that!!

    Also annoying, I joined the porsche club gb at the Brands Hatch event, and was going to go to their London meet tonight (first time)... guess there will be another!

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    @Monkey - ouch, I feel your pain.

    So not to rub things in too much here's a selection of my photos from yesterday.

    1. Who says it always rains in the UK?



    2. Not just us humans appreciate the Porsche marque.....



    3. The lengths some Rennteamers will go to get THE photo...



    Not too sure whats happened to the sizing there, but a bottle of plonk this evening means thats the best you're getting

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    It was a great day out, thanks Dreamcar! Beautiful scenery and amazingly not a single roadkill - though that silly pheasant made an honest attempt. Traffic back into London was a bit of pain even after dreamcar's quick re-routing assistance when we saw the backed up M27, but that's expected on a Sunday evening (what do all those people want on the M25? You'd think there's free beer for everyone to be had in the construction zone).

    Monkey, you should have bought a Cayenne, or a tank! Killing your tire in the attempt to catch up with us is not what we had in mind when we phoned you. Sorry to hear. Next time we call at 6am so there's plenty of leisurely time to get ready.

    And of course they had to capture my dirty girl in all her camouflage. I don't think anybody believed us when we swore on the bible that the car had been nice and clean when we set out in rainy London. Trying to wipe the dust off using my Jeans didn't exactly improve things either. I need JZ or Monkey to park in the empty spot in front of me the next time.

    There'll be some more pictures tonight.

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    Great pictures, Ente but who is that bald old coot on the ground?

    Humble apologies Ente - it was that man with the wabbit again

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    Gotta love the picture though...

    Through the prairie...


    Lions and tigers and bears...


    WTSnet and Rich C, entering the forbidden forest.


    Four Boxsters and a loo.


    Oncoming traffic could turn a scenic drive into an offroad experience. Dreamcar, WTSnet and Rich C, hoping for the best.

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    Fabulous pictures - but where is the elusive Blue Rinse Grockle?

    OK, I KNOW you all wanted to see the results of my grovelling in the dirt, so here goes Must be a wabbit's eye view...

    Re: NEW FOREST MEET SUNDAY 25TH SEPTEMBER

    Nice! Do you happen to have that in high resolution?
