    Hi All, Unless I have failed to find them there does not seem to be any meetings of Z roadster owners in the South of England, which I find very surprising as other marques have formed regular meetings and outings / runs planned on a regular basis. Mainly owners have come together to form a formal club structure which does not seem to exist here, (unless I am very wrong). Does anyone have any interest in getting together somewhere.

    Hi Alan,
    I'm based in Woking and would be interested (if the meet isn't too far away.....).

    Alan,

    I'm not normally in the Surrey area and it just happens to be my wife's birthday that week and so we are trying a hotel down there.

    There are lots of meet ups with the East Anglian crew over in the Norfolk Suffolk Lincolnshire Rutland areas. They have built up over time.

    If you can muster a few from you region you'll soon muster a few more.

    Set a date and invite all along. Hopefully you'll get some support.

    Good luck

    Hi Guys,
    Maybe we could get together at say Newlands Corner one evening (I was going to suggest one Sunday but it maybe very crowded and difficult to park)
    We can get a cuppa there........
    If any better suggestions please advise

    All depends on the date... I'm actually due to move back to Newbury around the 8th of August, so will be even closer... :)

    I'll come if I can make it, that's for sure!

    Hi Alan, just keep an eye on the forthcoming events section. Click the Watch Forum link near the top and you will get an email update to let you know a new event has been posted.

    London to Brighton is the biggy for next year, plenty of info in the events section.

    Shame you missed out on the Aylesbury meetup earlier this month organised by BMBabe above. Lots of zeds at that one :)
