I think I'm going to drive my Mk3 Dax to this event - and order some bits for my steering upgrade. How very exciting!! :)

Hi, as this Coupe has a full roll cage, it is not easy to get in and out of it.

Has anyone been to the DAX / JK open day before ? If so, what is the program for Sat 9 June: factory visit, cars on display and so on ?

Only back when it was Simon & Co at the old location - in which case it was a display of whatever cars had turned up on the day, people picking parts up from the factory and (at least one year) a BBQ.. but I can't speak for what JK has planned.

I'm on the fence about going - there's nothing for me to pick up at the factory and I don't have anyone to drag along this year, and I'm not great at actually talking to strangers so end up walking around and leaving. 'tis a bit of a trek, for that :)

Weather is looking good so hopefully there is a good turn out . Its a nice local run out for me and nice pub on the corner for lunch . There used to be a good turn out at Dax open days in the past at the factory also Rush .

Hello, for me it is the first time in the UK to have an Open Day / Kitcar meeting. So there will be food, drinks, cars on dispplay (like the Dax Coupe) etc etc.

John,

Apologies - I was hoping to join the fun today, but unfortunately I won't be able to make it after all. I hope everything goes well, and I'll try to pop down again sometime after the ECM.

Hi,

thanks for all who visit our first Open Day in the UK. We had a wonderfull day and very nice weather. Next time we will do the announcement sooner.

We had a very nice time, thank you. Looking around the unit, it was very organised, tidy, professional, clearly lots going on with chassis builds, hardtop fitments,etc. Lots of interesting chassis jigs and tooling to look at. The stores dept was very impressive, overall the unit looked like a real hive of activity. Very glad to have made it there - in probably the oldest kit in attendance, and possibly with the lowest mileage? 1990 Dax chassis with only 700 miles on it!
Anyway, here are a few pics of the event...bear with me...
