British Motor Meet in Sweden

Post by Manalishi » Sun Aug 18, 2013 7:05 am

British Motor Meet in the small city of Hjo between the two biggest lakes in Sweden. For me it was the first meeting with the Rover Club of Sweden, and a very nice meet with friendly people everywhere. Anders from Gothenburg was there aswell and the two only 820 T16 coupes in Sweden met for the second time. From Stockholm it was a nice journey of about 350km to get there, so new personal record with 700km in one day.

The Rover was even better than expected, very nice and comfortable in the motorway speeds and fuel consumption stayed pretty good aswell! 86l/100km which is a new record even though the needle was stuck between 80-85mph...

I wish the upload was easier and that the pics could be clickable to the original size. Unfortunately my camera (Iphone) doesn't do the cars the justice they deserve.

It would be very nice to be able to join forces some time. I have been looking into the possibility of taking the car on a ferry from Sweden to England but it's not many ferries around. I remember when I was a kid, my family went from Gothenburg to Harwich a couple of times but since then it seems more ore less imposible unless driving all the way, which I really don't want to do... :?

Saturday the 23rd of August 2014 we meet again in Hjo! This time hopefully we will be gathering a few more 800s from the Swedish Rover Club, besides very nice P6s, P6Bs, SD1s and a lot more. Hopefully my friend Gunnar will join with his 827 coupe plus Anders (Streetwise) from Gothenburg, making it the biggest coupe gathering in Sweden so far! (I think)

Any of you guys in Scandinavia by then? I know Vard66 is headed home but aparently he is stuck in Finland (drinking beer and attending to Sauna parties with the female population I presume) so he is too far away.

Watch this space!

Yesterday, me and my son went to the city of Hjo for the annual British Motor Meet. Leaving Stockholm in 6am we spent 3,5h on the road. The 800 really is a fantastic road car. It's not that quiet with the big tyres and big exhaust but the seats are so comfy drivning 350km one way really is a piece of cake. Unfortunately the weather wasn't as good as last year, but the rain only came in small drops and not all the time.

The quality of the pics are really less than good, but at least they are a hint. Sorry for not getting more on the Rovers!

Very nice pics! Hey Henrik did you a selfie while driving? with a kid aside? If so, please be careful. If you would made it here and the Guardia Civil would knew it, you'd be in a big trouble.

Well, they wouldn't have been where I took that pic so it's ok.

As usual pics are not giving the cars the justice they deserve and the rain very much didn't do it either, however just walking around chatting with owners and spectators is the thing.
