Bressingham Rover Rally
We will have a few non-Rovers again, to add interest, and I am looking for something unusual to be the centre piece of the show. Please let me know if you have an unusual vehicle or know of one. The entry price, which had been held at £7pp for a number of years, has this year been increased by the Bressingham Trust to £8 per head but this still represents excellent value. This includes entry to the gardens, museum and rides on the three narrow gauge steam railways. Regrettably we cannot guarantee entry for those who have not pre-booked and we did have to close bookings before the event last year so please don’t delay. As those who have been before will know, Bressingham is a very attractive venue and in addition to the attractive formal gardens, there is an original set of Steam Gallopers and an interesting museum containing coaches from the Royal train together with a number of steam exhibits. It is also home to the fascinating ‘Dads Army’ exhibition. In addition there is a restaurant serving refreshments and light lunches. Alongside the rally field is a well-stocked garden centre, which is always worth a visit. Further information at www.norfolkandnorwichroveroc.org.uk or call Terry Reynolds on 01603 405280 for an entry form.

Rover SD1 Club 2016 National Rally
Celebrating the 40th anniversary of the launch of the SD1 at Chateau Impney in Worcestershire which was the location for that press launch back in 1976. We will be meeting at the Chateau on Saturday 4th June, for a road run up the Wye valley - following the original route taken by the press to demonstrate the new car. This will be approximately 150 miles, stopping for refreshments on route. We will then return to the Chateau. The main event will take place on Sunday 5th June in the grounds of the Chateau. We hope to make this the largest gathering of SD1s for many years. We will be displaying many examples of the marque, including some race cars, as well as some rare early surviving examples. Everyone is welcome to attend this event - Club members, SD1 enthusiasts, and other Rover owners. It promises to be quite a special occasion!
