Rover Rally - Batley(West Yorkshire) Sunday 7th June 2015

#1 Post by perrinsdave » Fri Feb 20, 2015 4:42 pm

The Yorkshire Rover Club are again holding a classic car rally at Oakwell Hall, Batley near Birstall (West Yorkshire - WF17 9LG), which is just off the M62. This will be our fifth rally at this beautiful Elizabethan manor house set in it's own countryside park. This will be held on Sunday 7th June 2015.

Whilst open to all classic cars, the rally has several classes just for Rovers (we are a Rover club!). We would warmly welcome any Rover, especially any 200/400s, to attend our rally (last year we had several modern 75s, but only one 216).

For an entry form or more details, please email perrinsdave@gmail.com

Thanks
Dave

No club stand is planned: you and Craig are the only R8 owners who have expressed an interest in going so far. I will be emailing the details to the Cabriolet owner in Teeside (mentioned in another of my posts) in case he is willing and able to go.

You can have the club flag and banner for this show if we can find a way of getting it 'up North' and back to Warwick.

Anybody travelling that way between now and June?
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

Enjoyed Sunday, and meeting a few club members/forum visitors.

There were five R8's there (3x cabriolets, 1x coupe, 1x hatchback). Four of these five were silver!

I had to chuckle at one passer by as she walked past the R8s and Rover 75s:
"Are these cars just parked up or are they on display?"

She obviously didn't appreciate that the more recent Rovers are "modern classics" as she though it was just the car park!

Would you or Paul like to become a regional rep for the club? We have had success in some other parts of the country and it would be good to make our presence felt a little more in the North West.
