The 15th annual meeting took place on the 1st October 2016 at Tilford Green, Farnham opposite the Barley Mow pub.
The event was well attending despite the awful weather most of us had to drive through to get there and once all parked up it stayed pretty much dry.
Long time owners, new owners and potential owners had a great chat about all things 928 among fellow enthusiasts.

Our Grand Tour of the Wild Atlantic Way in Ireland by Mike Parris
Embarking on a lengthy drive fills me with excitement but also trepidation that our 1990 928S4 will behave. It didn't help that the belt service light came on a few days before the trip but that was just the wire came off at the spade connector on the tensioner for some reason.
Oil, water and tyres checked we fail at the first hurdle and curse the sat nav. for not finding the ferry port in Holyhead until we work out the country needs to be set to Wales!

928 In The Future – 2017 – Brooklands in Surrey
The first news for 2017, that’s correct 2017, not a typing mistake. The Porsche Club GB 928 Register has reserved Sunday 28th May 2017 at Brooklands near London for the 40th Anniversary of the 928 and asked 928.org.uk to participate. Both groups are committed to supporting this event for all 928 owners regardless of club membership.
We shall celebrate in style, with unlimited parking in the midst of this historic race track. We last made a visit in 2011 with over 60 cars, we hope to double that number next year. Brooklands was awarded £3 million Lottery funding in 2015, they are scheduled to have spent it just in time for us to arrive! There will be many new attractions as well as the old favourites. It’s a handy place to find, follow the signs, just a couple of miles from Junction 10 of the M25.
Put the date in your calendars now. The exact details will become clearer as we get closer to the time.

We met again at The Merry Miller at Cothill near Oxford. I believe there were 30 928's in attendance. It was lovely to catch up again with old friends and see some lovely cars. I took a few pictures especially of the beautifully detailed engine bay - surely beyond the call of duty - and I presented Yas with a Matchbox 928 for being the furthest travelled - he brought his car from France,as its for sale and is a british RHD car and better off being actually located here with relatives. I missed the early part of the meeting but it struck me that four or five of the originators of the list and four or five of those who went on the memorable 928 trip to Stuttgart were there and still just as committed to these great cars. I must get another one soon!
