Well guys, I'd just like to thank you all for making the journey, everyone played a part in making it one of the biggest Mazda gatherings the country combined had ever had, I thought the day was a success and it was an absolute pleasure to meet everyone, sadly I couldn't get around to everyone but I did try.... although I was pretty much a zombie on the day due to spending 3 weeks solid working 11hr shifts in work then 6-7 hours every evening in the shed trying to get Rita ready!
Of course as most of you know disaster struck at 3:30am Sunday morning on the way home after I'd finally finished her! Oil cooler pipe, **pew pew pew** = empty sump in 4 minutes.... again I have to mention that man Anthony who if it weren't for him the car wouldn't of made the show, 6:30am Sunday morning he went up to shadow, and stripped a cooler pipe from an 8 for me, like who does that?! He does!!!! I can't thank him, James and all the guys I rang Sunday morning in near tears because of what happened, they literally all had the same attitude and the exact same words from all their mouths..."don't worry, Anthony will sort it, you will be going to the show in that 8" it's situations like this that makes you truly appreciate the rotary scene and the people in it! The lads will bend over backwards, do a loop and make a pretzel out of themselves to help you out!
I'll be doing a project thread update, of how Ritas road to Mazda fest when I get a chance and explain how she got to the way she is....it will also be full of more thank yous to the guys lol
I have to apologize to the guys that helped organize this with me, I was meant to be there bright an early but ....Yeah....I arrived late! But what a job they did everything ran perfect and all was completely and utterly under control when I eventually did arrive and lads you really need to take a bow and give yourselves credit, for the first time organizing a day on that scale you all done unbelievably well!
@warpc0il Dave your hospitality and generosity to over your land to a group of guys you've never met was beyond belief, you are an absolute gentleman and a hero in my eyes! I'd also like to personally thank you for all the effort you put in before the day, even to the point of going to the track to get photos + all the relevant information we needed and getting Donal on board!
I'm sorry to hear about all the guys that had issues on the day, it's always a shame to see, but keep the chins up guys the cars will be sorted in no time especially with a community like we have!
Until next time guys
