Thirty-six 928’s gathered at the Merry Miller, Cothill, on November 22 for the annual 928uk gathering. It was good to meet up with the usual crowd, plus one or two new faces. But, of course, the cars were the stars of the show, ranging from Andrew Brierley’s mint 928GT to Phil Rickard’s orange supercharged model (which is based on a GT).
Making the trip from Texas was 928 specialist and parts supplier Roger Tyson (www.928sRUs.com), whilst technical guru Paul “Smiffy” Smith was over from New Zealand (and soon to be repatriated to the UK).
Two competitions were run at the Merry Miller, the first being judgement of the best large and small 928 souvenirs, won by Bill Robertson and Richard Armstrong, respectively. The second competition involved guessing the odometer reading on Mike Parris' 928. I was fortunate to come closest to the actual 94,742km with my estimate of 92,000km.
A big “thank you” goes to Andrew Brierley for organising the day on behalf of 928uk, and to Angus Fox for maintaining the website and mailing list (www.928.org.uk).
