As I haven't been before and don't know what it will be like, can those who been before say what models usually turn up, is it any Rover since early c.20 or more groups of owners like on here? Do they get grouped when arrive? Or is it random?

All sorts turns up

Parking is sort of grouped but sort of random too!

The informality of the event it one of the good things in my opinion.

everything is so close to being finished by the end of the month let alone winter.

420 needs drivers window mech, door cards and boost pipes job done
220 roversport gti needs a bath :cool
NFR 220 coupe (N285FDH). need engine swap, full exhaust, battery put back in the engine bay, fans job done.
218 k-turbo cabriolet just finishing off the head, then block back in, new ecu, drive shafts job done.

As you can see, not a lot of work in the grand scheme of things.

unless mr lottery wants to lend a hand then the black one will be available as well.....don't get me started with its list.

We are now members of the AFL clubs and have now requested a stand for this year, GTiJohn will verify this when conformation comes though.
