BMC & LEYLAND SHOW, GAYDON JULY 2nd 2017

Post by dollysprint » Wed May 03, 2017 8:11 pm

The next big show for the Rover 800 Owners Club will be at Gaydon on July 2nd 2017.
Tickets are £14 on the day or £7 if ordered in advance via Gaydon's website.
There will be a convoy from Cowley and another from Longbridge should you wish to arrive in one of them then you will need to be at either location between 08.30 and 09.15 ready for a 09.30 departure
Run flags and plaques can be pre ordered before midnight June 18th at cost of £8 for flags and £5 for plaques, I shall attach details below. These convoys are not run by the Club and they are for everyone.

We will be having a Car of the day award for members and hopefully some Regalia for sale, although timing is tight so fingers crossed.
Everyone is welcome to join the club stand and membership will be available should you wish to join the Club on the day.

Talking of which I am also now the Membership Secretary, the Archivist and Forum Liaison so feel free to contact me via here or 07717 299226
Regalia Secretary contact details will be released once Regalia is available.
Parts Secretary contact details will be added once parts remanufacture begins, probably late summer and we are hoping that along with fuel filler pipes there will be a range of the metal coolant pipes for 2.7 and 2.0 petrol models.
Hopefully the website for the Club will also be getting a make over and all this information will be found there along with an extensive Archive/database but you will have to be a member to view that.

Anyway our aim at Gaydon is to get the largest gathering of 800's yet seen, so if you can make the day then please do, hopefully the sun will shine.
Anyway details for the convoys

Just bumping this to keep it in peoples minds, but it would be good if we could get some indication of those intending to go, makes it easier to set out the stand. So stick your name down if you are hoping to be there.
Thank you

The summer Phil is always to sodding short thats the trouble, however thinking out load for a moment if anyone is going and are looking for parts then meets like this are an ideal way of asking in advance and see if someone brings the parts along for sale /swap ect ect

Just to let everyone know, Wynne Mitchell has kindly agreed to be our guest at Gaydon this year. For those that don't know, Wynne was Tony Ponds Race Engineer and built the 1990 record breaking 800 Vitesse that lapped the Isle of Man TT circuit at over 100mph.
He is part of 800 history and loves a chat, he has also provided his notes from that time that show the complete specs for the car, which I hope to have on show. Come along and meet him and enjoy the day.

Just 2 weeks til Gaydon show so just jogging everyone's memory.
We will have Regalia on sale consisting of Polo Shirts, T shirts, rear screen dealer vinyl stickers, and pens, I'll try and put some pictures up, the Polo shirts look particularly good and will range from £20-28 depending on spec. Thats for Club members, non members prices are available on request
A reminder that Wynne Mitchell will be joining us, membership will be available on the day, there will be a "car of the day" award and technical bulletins and the Isle of Man TT lap will be screened throughout the day. There will also be a small commemorative plaque issued to members.
You can pre book tickets via the heritage website but only until the 18th, after that it will be pay on the door at almost twice the price.

sample pictures of regalia as promised, the shirt shown is our "SE" EDITION, Club logo will be on the left breast, union jack on the right sleeve and Vitesse, Coupe or Sterling on the left sleeve. Also available in black, grey, burgundy and white, this one is known as the Duotone Polo shirt. T shirts will be similar but not in duo tone and left sleeve badge is unavailable.
Pens, charcoal one is the Club pen and the burgundy one is the 800 series pen, the latter comes in a presentation box.
There will also be the rear screen dealer stickers as previewed a few weeks ago in another thread.
Hope you like what we have done.
The plaque will be given free to attending Club members on the day.

Last reminder of Gaydon Show this coming weekend Sunday 2nd July. The Club stand will be unmissable but if you haven't pre booked then your chances of getting on with your car will be slim but that doesn't stop you from joining us in person. There will be video screenings throughout the day in the 800 gazebo, Wynne Mitchell on hand to chat about the TT record breaking car, Regalia, membership will be available for those wishing to join and various bits of 800 information as well as a Car of the Day Award and your free attendance plaque for members.
Gates open at 10 am.

Sadly, won't have a car to attend with. My Vitesse didn't pass MOT today, a bit optimistic to put it in but at least I know where to concentrate my efforts. The (extended) drive to the testing station, and back, was great though :D , especially considering that it hasn't driven any distance in at least four years, and my first real drive of it!

Any thing happening here for Rover Fest, 11-13 August?
