Love British light weight sports cars, but can't afford an Atom, Zenos or a Radical? You're at the right place! I'd like to gather a group of RWD minded people, who love the likes of MX5's, Lotus', Caterham's, MG's, TVR's, Triumph, Z3's, MR2's, VX220's, Ginetta's, Noble's, Morgan's, Ford's, AC's, you name it! -Ideally it'd be a chance to celebrate 'light is right' with classics or modern classics rather than mighty Godzillas with a million BHP...- and go for morning runs or trips to Goodwood & Bands in 2018.

Yes, the MX5 isn't exactly British, in spite of Clarckson's quote. Hence the quotation marks, both on British and affordable, cause let's face it, we do spend quite a bit of money on them... but you know what I mean.

Glad you like the idea of gathering 'light weight' RWD, it could be a great atmosphere and fun ride.

Perhaps we can meet at Goodwood service on Sunday 17th Dec (I should normally be back from travelling for work, but I'm not 100% sure).
Or we can play it by ear and arrange a civilised run early next year ?

Come a bit further west Hampshire way and I could be tempted to bring something lightweight, RWD and British out to play.

Once I’ve fixed it... rolleyes

Sounds fun, but a bit too far away for me.

The South Downs, especially the West Sussex side, is quite a distance from Kent. smile

My bad, somethings up with my geography today! - Assumed they extended across to Dover - my bad smile

Still not that far away so should be game

Well Z3’s and MX5’s are allowed so I guess FWD must be allowed too....

Mid engined?! Definitely allowed smile

Oh and I wanted to clarify, this is a thread for those who enjoy RWD cars.
It's absolutely fine if you don't see the attraction of RWD, but please be constructive here, therefore no need to insist on FWD smile

For those interested, please send me directly a message with a preferred location to meet (and any details you find relevant) and I'll put together a little casual event suggestion smile

We'll see how far into Kent we go, Dover seems out of range for the first few events I think, but let's see how this evolves smile

Looking forward to starting 2018 with a fun convoy!

What dates are you thinking of? I’m sure a lot of the cars you speak of (mine included) are locked away to protect from the worst of winter at the moment..

Mine usually emerges from hibernation around March, maybe April if the weather is bad. A weekend in April sounds good! (When is Easter?)
