I'm wearing my other hat now....

Somehow I volunteered to organise this years National Rally for The Rover P5 Club, of which I have been a member for some 15 years. I would like to extend this invitation to all you out there in Saabsceneland.

This is a two day event - on Saturday I have booked an additional carriage for an evening meal (please see below) and Sunday is the rally day.

The only stipulation for SUNDAY is that your car must be over 15 years old to enter the rally area, though 'newer' cars can park in the main car park and join us on the day.

Date: Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd August 2004.
Location: East Somerset Railway, Cranmore, Somerset.

This National Rally will be a very relaxed ocassion that in some small way captures those days long gone, of picnics and steam trains. For those of you who really want to get in the mood there will a prize for the best period (1950's-1980's) dressed car and occupants - though this is totally optional!
