Not long to go now :)

Everyone who registered their interest should have received an email by now, direct from Grant Richards at Mazda Motors UK, outlining the day’s events and asking everyone to re-confirm they are still planning to attend.

It is VITAL that people reply to that email so that your name(s) and car details will be on the list for the day.

If you have registered, but have NOT received an email from Mazda, check your spam/junk folders and if no luck, please email team@mazdarotaryclub.com and we’ll get things sorted.

The event will run from 10am to 3pm. On arrival, your names will be checked off as you enter the site, and you will receive a trophy voting form. You will then be directed where to park, so please follow the parking marshals’ instructions. All rotaries will be parked together in the same area – if you want to park alongside your friends, please arrange to arrive TOGETHER at the Mazda site entrance to facilitate this. The only exception will be if you arrive in an FB. This being the 40th anniversary of the launch of the RX-7, all 1st Generation RX-7’s will be parked together in a specific area, to which you will be directed ;)

If you are coming in a non-rotary then there will be a separate parking area available on site to which you will be directed.

Light refreshments, including a cold buffet, will be available at around noon, with hot and cold drinks available throughout the day, all kind courtesy of Mazda. By all means bring your own refreshments if you wish.

We are trying to organise some deckchairs, but you might want to bring your own camping chairs as seating might be limited.

The weather forecast is still set to be sunny and up to 29 degrees, so bring some sun protection with you.

I wish you all a super day at one of the biggest gatherings of Mazda rotaries for some time in the UK! Lots of pics please as I can't make it due to clash with a family event.......

I've just been in contact with Grant Richards at Mazda and he's not had confirmations back yet from:

Dave MacKay
and
James Kennedy

Are you two guys still planning to attend?

I've let him know that, sadly, James Ford can't make it.

We've lost a few, but gained a few too. Around 10-12 FB's still expected at the moment.

I've already received one cancellation (an RX-8 though) due to the England v Columbia result tonight ;)

Really sorry to hear that Dave :(

Still 80 rotaries on the list to attend, but we might lose a few due to World Cup clash now :roll:

We've kept the list open for last minute changes and the current attendance looks like this:

Cosmo 110s - 1
RX-3 - 2
RX-4 - 1
FB -11
FC - 3
FD - 26
RX-8 - 22
Umknown - 12

Total - 78

PLUS a Cosmo 110s, a Group B FB, a super low mileage FB and an FD are expected in the Mazda Heritage museum :D

That has to be the biggest turnout and variety of Rotaries in one place in the UK for quite a long time W(p

I wish everyone attending has a really great day!

(KiwiDave - just saw your email that you can make it after all. That will be fine!)
