Hey All,

I've had my car for over 5 yrs now and am getting tired of having to drive miles to meet up with fellow Porsche drivers or drive solo to events so thought I'd see if anyone is local to Milton Keynes?. I used to have an M3 and in those days there was around 5 of us, so we'd meet up, go for a " spirited " hoon, have coffee, some banter and head back.

Thought I'd see if any fellow 997 owners around before I lose my motivation totally and sell the thing and turn into an SUV driver.

Thanks!

Why just 997s Question

If you suggest a date and venue for a meeting on the 'Meets and Events' sub-forum I'm sure you'll get a few takers. If the venue is right, and/or the drive promised is fun, people will travel to you.

Hey, thanks for the suggestion Smile Wasn't trying to exclude others, it's just what I've got so thought other owners might be more enthusiastic to meet another person who has the same one locally. Talking point, same car... etc. Makes it perfect for spur of the moment " Nice day today, free for a quick blast to X in 30 mins?" type of thing Smile

I grew up near Milton Keynes and still have family there so am around the area quite a bit. Now based in Hitchin so only 40 mins down the road. Would be keen on a local meetup if there are enough people.

I haven’t been to any meets, but I am based in Stevenage, so reasonable local. Could be persuaded!

Used all year round, don't understand the concept of hiding them away for half the year! Some of the best driving days are on cold clear mornings in the winter. Thumb

I was like that a few yrs back, but the last 2 winters I couldn't be bothered so it's just stood in the garage.

I used to make these 2hr drives on my own but that was when I was full of motivation. lol Now I'm only interested if there is at least someone else to convoy with and have some fun on the way down/up.
