Thought I might as well start a tread on the RX8 Day Out, just so it was easier for everyone to see.
Plans are coming along well.
The day to circle on your calender is Sunday March 20th, starting at 10.30am from Hampton downs race track car park area.
I have booked the lunch stop for 10-20 people at this stage, but if everybody brings a couple of people with them, we might get more then that number.
Hopefully everyone is looking out for RX8 owners and letting them know that this event is on.
Just incase anyone needs to know, the morning run is going to be around 1.5hrs and the afternoon run should be around 2hrs.
This should allow time to have a nice long lunch break and for those that wanted to catch some waves and a swim. Hopefully we can get the cars all together and take some nice photos to post on here after the event.
Maybe someone might like to bring their video along as well and capture the ride as we travel along.
Anyway I'm looking forward to meeting some new people and having a good day out.

Thought I would remind everyone that its just over two weeks until the RX8 Mystery Tour.
Time to start cleaning your RX so it looks pretty for its day out.
I think by the time I get down to Auckland with all the road works around at the moment, I'll probably have to sandblast my car just to get all the crap off it.
Don't forget to bring your friends along for a great day out, you might even be able to convince them to buy an RX8 for the next event.
Remember if you see any RX8s around, let them know about the event.
The list of people ( cars ) coming is nine so far, lets see if we can get a couple more on that list, which would be great.
See you all soon
Miss8 - I think one tank of fuel should be fine, depending on how heavy you are on the gas pedal. I have worked on the day being around 3.5 hrs of actually driving. Might be a little more or a little less.
If you are bringing a car full of people along, ask them for $20 each for a days entertainment. That would be a cheap days out if you ask me.
Hope this is helpful.
ryandaum - I don't want to put up the finishing place on here, as that would be giving away a clue for the day out.
So if you want to find out the finishing place you can give me a call ( 09 4098198 ) .
sweetfa if your car takes a tank of gas to travel from Auckland to hampton downs and back, then I suggest that it needs a good tune up., or its got a leak in the tank somewhere.
Is anybody able to take a video camera along for our Mystery tour? I know my video skills are hopeless, but I think it would be great to be able to have someone video our day out and post it up on youtube for other RX8 forum people to see what they missed out on.
Just a few things to remember to bring along with you for the RX8 day out.
1) A pen and maybe something to write on
2) A camera of some type
3) A map if you think you might get lost or gps
4) Money for lunch and dinner/beer at the end of the day
5) A tank of fuel
6) A passenger to help you with the clues and to help you have a fun day.
I have included 10 questions into the Mystery tour day out, which relate to the places we will be seeing, so hopefully a little bit of general knowledge maybe useful and make it a bit more fun.
If anybody can think of anything else, let us know.
Hay xcon, if I see any good looking hitch hikers on my way down, I might pick one up for you as your passenger. Whats your preference? Don't know whether my wife would be too keen on that idea though.
Brettus, I'm just confirming that I will be there, since I have the clues to the mystery tour with me, I better turn up.
I cleaned my car yesterday, but I bet that I have to clean it again by the time I get down to Auckland, bloody shitty roads up north.
