Hiya Dave,

Surely they wouldn't mind us all turning up to celebrate 10 years?? Always wanted a pic taken below the PRODRIVE sign as well. Never gave it any thought tbh but my god doesn't she still look good amongst all this modern day shite

we could all go to petter,s house for a piss up 8)
it is better to have had a wr1 and lost it than never to have one at all.

I'm sure the first wr1 was registered on a 53 plate 2003?

I'm up for the meet...

First was probably the press / launch car, would imagine there's not much of that left now. 2004 seems the spiritual home for the WR1 IMO.

Yes, we should make every effort to celebrate the anniversary.
It's still worth asking Podrive I think.

Hey Mick, you may want to check your lens mate.

I have just dropped Prodrive a line to see what they can do.

Will let you know when I hear back.

Not hear back from ProDrive yet - but very early days. I did reach out to a couple of the motor magazines and the AutoCar Editor is interested in the story. Its not a firm yes but I think give a little more sway with with ProDrive folks when they respond.

Be great if we could get a mag like Evo in on the action - couple of page spread and a buyers guide or similar.

From very limited research, was the car launched in Jan 2004 at the AutoSport show does anyone know? And does any one know where the press photos were taken?

Fantastic news. Make it happen Dave lol Perhaps 'WR1' might be able to help you organise it as he emailed Prodrive and put the feelers out with a few car magazines.

Also thanks to Jackie for coming on and trying to sort something out for us :D

Will get helping with this event when I get back in the country next week folks, been stranded abroad several weeks now due to the kids getting chicken pox whilst away with no 3G net access!

Airlines don't let you fly for obvious reasons if anyone has chicken pox. Anyway leaving the missus with the kids and coming back next week to sort some work out as my 3yr old just started getting spotty meaning he is a good 2-3 weeks off being able to fly now. The mother in law will be flying out to take over babysitting poorly kids lol

So that means the house to myself and no mother in law in range. Game on! :lol:
