BMC/Leyland/Rover day, Gaydon 2nd July 2017

Postby 220 GSi turbo » Thu May 04, 2017 10:26 pm

Time to start making plans for this one!

https://www.britishmotormuseum.co.uk/events/the-bmc-and-leyland-show

I am booking us a club stand and it would help with planning the size of it if people intending to go could post in this thread.
£7 gets you a pass for your car and includes entry tickets to the museum for the driver and one passenger.
Booking needs to be made directly with the British Motor Museum using this form:

If you are a paid-up club member, keep an eye on the members area of our forum to find out how you might be able to get your hands on a free entry pass. :)
