RMS BBQ at Kerr’s Tyres Newtownards

92 Replies

Over 140 cars and 200 hungry RMS members, car enthusiasts and friends arrived at Kerr’s Tyres for the first barbecue of the year.  We were blessed with clear blue skies and sunshine, and the tyre depot carpark overflowed out on to the main road, it was that busy.  The format of the event was still unchanged as ever – free food, arrive and go as you please and a completely chilled atmosphere.


RMS has a broad and varied membership and this seems to be reflected in our BBQs.  This event was no exception with everything from Warren’s Akrapovič fitted BMW M4, to the Capri Club member’s classic mark 1 cars in concurs condition, there was something for everyone.

We hope to continue to run these events throughout 2015 as they seem incredibly popular and a great way of members meeting offline.

Congratulations to Les in the Orange Toyota GT86 for taking car of the day.

Called in just after 1:30 and there was a great crowd there already, some very nice cars about as well. Loved the red RS6, M4 and white 911.
