BMC/BL Rally & Spares Day, Peterborough 5th August 2018

#1 Post by GTiJohn » Sun Apr 29, 2018 9:51 am

This is the 25th running of the BMC/BL Rally & Spares Day at Nene Par, Peterborough

Information for the event is here - http://www.bmcblrally.co.uk/information/ and an entry form will be available shortly.

To celebrate it being the 25th event the organisers are looking to get a display of Rover Group vehicles that were on sale in 1993.

Obviously that includes our R8 vehicles but we're not sure if that'll be one or one of each bodystyle yet but if you have a 1993 3/4/5/cabby or coupe (Tourer was '94) and would be interested in joining a separate display please put your name below.

This is a big event with a large autojumble. Pre-booking is available at a discounted entry price.

Everybody, including the organisers, are wary of the parking ANPR system ( http://www.neneparktrust.org.uk/ferry-m ... ng-charges ) - you've been warned!

Going
1. GTiJohn '96 Coupe

'93 display offer
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

Sounds good, I intend to attend. ANPR? Time to cover up plates, or use someone else's, ofc. :laughing2

1992 216gsi, clearly. Hopefully, less rusty if my July rust-attacking has any success at all. Well, should rust that quickly again anyway. Anyone good at doing paint, haha? I will probably attempt it myself. God I'm scared.

Not a big r8 turnout for this then.
Just seen checking the pictures and not one r8 on it, no wonder if none of us turns up :mouthshut

I only looked as the boss lady just asked and seeing as its going to be 26 degrees was considering dusting down the cabby.

But if no ones gonna turn up, travelling halfway across the country to be billy no mates, i'd rather go to the beach. :mope

We've had around 20 cars at this one in previous years. No-one's populating the list, that's all. It's the 25th anniversary, so they're looking for 1993 cars to put on a special stand. Guess that means the R8 then...

It’s normally well attended by R8’s. Usually plenty there!

I have booked in with Simon the GSi
According to the 'car entry form', pre-booking ended on 1st of July. Did you book yours by that date, or is there some other way of booking in now still so that we can park up with the club cars?
