Had my 993 for nearly 9 years now and very rarely see or here of any other Porsche enthusiasts in the area. There are some great roads on the doorstep so wondered if there was any regular drives or meets.

If there isn't anything going on, just post up something up in the Meets section as an idea. To quote Kevin Costner from "Field of Dreams"....If you build it, they will come.

Can't be many new 993 owners in Yorkshire. I expect the conversation usually stops after the first question. 'Ow much?'.

There are quite a few enthusiasts on here who live in the area. Was also at the event for a while, waiting for a burger, but eventually drifted up to Ecclesall Rd for my refreshments. Judging by what I saw drive up the road a few others also did.

Well All,

I’m hoping some of you would be free Saturday the 28th July 10.30am to meet in Sheffield at The Florentine, 1 Tapton Park Road, Sheffield S10 3FG.

This will only get going if someone throws the first burger on the bbq so to speak. If I find myself stood in the car park Billy no mates, at least the effort was made.

I know there are quite a few Sheffield area Porsche drivers out there as I pass many and I’d love to meet a few of you, drool over your cars, pick your brains, chat about how you find it, whatever floats your car boat.

If anyone would like to joint organise, has any suggestions please feel free to pm me. The location is close to the Peak District and perfect for a little twistys over to either, Buxton, Matlock even Chatsworth and back.

Thought I’d set a date in the future so it can get out there and gather a bit of interest Dont know

Won’t be the first time I’ve been stood in a car park waiting for a date.

Having just read that again I now realise that comes across ever so slightly wrong Floor

I meant it won’t be the first time I’ve been stood up in a car park, oh sod it whoever makes it, will be good to see you Floor Floor

Whoever can make it and it’s open to all would be good to see you

You never know, I might pop over the hill and join in. I used to work in Sheffield near MeadowHELL and Mrs P is from Yorkshire, so that should see me clear customs Floor

You’d be more than welcome.

The flat cap has travelled beyond our borders and we’ve discovered has become common currency. You won’t be required to produce one as evidence of former residency to get in

GoodJob

I did the same thing in Kent about 4 years ago and on the first date five of us had a great breakfast. Nowadays we've got a pool of about 40 meaning that on any arranged date there's normally 15-20 of us.

Glad to see there is some interest even if this date may not be for everyone. Was aware of the PCGB Chatsworth meet on the Sunday, so will be looking to have a nosey as a non member.

I’m conscious that ollster started this thread and I don’t want to hijack his posting. worship

If you’re following this ollster feel free to jump in and take over as T8 says, the more of us getting involved the better participation there should be for the future. I’ll see how this date goes and will post another meet for August under my screen name in meets.

Those who can make July see you there, those who can’t look out for the August date.
