Hi Ladies/Gents

I don't know where to start so I've put a post here.

I have been asked by my Regional Director to "put the feelers out there" on this forum and anywhere where we see fit to ask for a meet at our dealership TrustFord in Bristol at Ashton, there will/can be cars in the show room with the new RS & Mustang etc etc and all outside the dealership, or an area close by if we get a large number of vehicles that possible would like to attend.

We are looking for ANY RS BADGED CARS, weather that's Focus MK1's, MK2's, 500's, old school RS's also welcome Fiesta, Escort, any MK etc etc , they can be standard, lightly modified, any modifications really, the more the merrier....

He did also say that it can even be any ST's models as well.

It will be with the new RS and Mustang and can be any time from the Focus RS price/spec reveal to March, I know that's a 6 month time frame/window, but he just would like to know some sort of possible numbers for cars that would possibly like to come to this event as he can then put a business plan in place to pay and promote it, and tie down a NEW RS and MUSTANG, then obtain potential date(s) for this to happen.

He said as I'm in the FOCUSRS owners club , and into theses cars, could I see who may / would like to attend this, it would be for everyone, your family / friends / a gathering here in Bristol to promote the cars , show your cars, show the progression of the RS, ( and ST's ) a family atmosphere and the usual get together really.

I know it will be hard for people to say yes as it's such a wide date range, but before it can be approved and an action plan put together we need rough numbers that all, so first I thought id'd start here with us, our club as its RS's, MK1 and MK2's, RS500's, etc etc.

Anyone from our club here is welcome if they would like to " pop " down or "pop " up to sunny Bristol...;) :) :), we don't talk foreign, we will just have to talk slower for people to understand us that's all... :) :)

It may not even go ahead but I thought it was nice of him to give me the time of day and talk about the these cars, and ask our club for cars of this nature to attend a potential meet here, this all came about because @OliRS had his RS in for his yearly MOT and Service, the RD seen it then the next day we had this chat.

So IF and that's a BIG IF due to the date range, you could/would like to attend this then could you please put your name down and I'll update this first post with your names as and when/if there is any, and as soon as I have anymore info on this I will update accordingly...

Cheers

Justin

Justin as you say it is a wide set of dates.

Almost better to decide on a date and then see who will attend to be honest with you,

That's how Rates did their's for 2014 & 2015 with a slight adjustment in 2015 to avoid the Nürburgring RS meet as well.

I think your bigger issue is going to be the British weather though,

Sep through to March is not exactly the sunniest or driest of weather and you know there are a lot of people who wont take their RS out in poor weather so you could have low numbers due to that alone.

If possible I would have thought a Mid-late march or early April meet would have stood a better chance of attendance.

I might even make a weekend of it myself and drop the missus at her mothers in Bath and come along myself.

Just seen this, I'd definitely be interested in doing this if I'm available. Have got connections with my previous ST owners club as well if needed, Kam (from Ashton) is a member of our group, so I'm sure he can vouch for them if needed. Would be great to meet up with a load of fellow owners at once and in quite a cool way!

No probs Oli ;) :), cheers I'll add you to the possibles, and if you can or Kam could start a post on the ST site, point them to this thread, or get possible people's names added to this thread, I can then update post one with more people.

The more we get the more likely it will go ahead, but not doing to bad so far, but as we have already said it will be date dependant, so hopefully I can get a narrower window of dates soon??? ( if at all :) :) :) )

As said before any RS or ST and any old school cars welcome ;) :)
