Club Expansion voting closes Thurs Oct 8th

#1 Post by GTiJohn » Mon Sep 28, 2015 7:13 pm

Reminder to all club members...

Votes have started to come back in via email and post - thank you to all those 'quick off the blocks'.

There are only 10 days to go to get your vote in, so please do it asap - why not now? :angel

If you're a paid-up club member and haven't received a voting form it pls contact me asap and we'll rectify that.

You can vote at the AGM but obviously it's an 'either/or'.

If you've sent me an email in the last 24 hours could you please resend it - I've just had an 'inbox incident' :blushing

I saw one unviewed reply before the 'incident'....

Both of those were received :D

But I'm expecting a flood in the last few days.... :laughing2

One or two stragglers being contacted via 'alternative mediums' as the email on record has bounced.

I only vote in case there is a tie in the voting so if necessary I will cast my vote at the AGM.

Postal & email voting is now closed.

You still attend the AGM to register your vote in person.

Yes I think so. The result was 30 odd votes in favour and 4 votes against. So the membership carried the proposal.

Got it cheers guys. I really don't like the bubble shape 200s and they don't share (m)any parts with the R8, but of course welcome to any additional members :)
ps Quite like 400s however!

In fact they share a considerable amount of parts. The front structure and front floor were carried over into the R3 as was the HVAC hardware.

The new engine installations and additional crash structures designed for both cars and introduced on R8 at 96MY.

The rear suspension was a necessity to improve both the packaging and the costs and used much of the original tooling with mods to suit the installation and improve the handling.

Ended up being a cracking car IMHO. But then I'm biased.... :D

The R3 is a much better handling car than an R8 in standard form. Great fun to drive, particularly the diesels. Unfortunately BMW chose to over price it at launch and try to sell it as a family car when it was designed as a supermini. My wife has driven R3s for the past 17 yrs!
