Drive of the Month - Weymouth Porsches on the Prom - Friday/Saturday 19th/20th July 2019

Hi everyone,
 
Our DOTM for July is an overnight visit to Weymouth Porsches on the Prom on Friday evening 19th July, followed on Saturday 20th by a scenic drive around Dorset.
 
The "Weypop" event runs from 6pm to 10pm, and last year, with only 3 years on the calendar, R26 attracted 400 Porsches.
 
We will leave on the Friday morning with lunch en route, then check-in at a hotel of your choice.  There are many hotels of all sorts in the area.  I have chosen the Duchess of Cornwall in Dorchester, 7 miles from Weymouth, where there are currently several double rooms available.  Parking is on street in front of the hotel, and monitored by security cameras.
 
At the event, we can just enjoy the atmosphere with other Porsche owners and the general public, while partaking in a fish and chips supper and some local fayre and other refreshments available at numerous outlets (discounts are offered at some - see the R26 Events page).
 
On the Saturday, we will meet to take a scenic drive around the Dorset Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty, to include the spectacular Jurassic Coast Road between Weymouth and Bridport, with sweeping bends and stunning views.  R26 members have kindly provided suggestions for a pub lunch and perhaps a visit to a local attraction, following which we will take a leisurely drive home.
 
As ever, if you are interested in this event, please indicate by replying to this post.  Then please send me an email to mark.grimwood1@btinternet.com where in due course we can discuss more details.
 
Happy days!
Mark

    Hi Mark.
    Marian and I will be up for this, and Eddie and Marilyn also . They have booked two rooms in  'The Poachers Inn' in Piddletrenthide which is
    7 miles north of Dorchester.

    That’s great news Andy and Marian, Eddie and Marilyn. I am looking forward to the event and seeing you there, although in due course I will be organising a convoy for those that wish to join. 
     
    Cheers.
