Rover P5 Club National Rally

Postby Rovernutter on Mon Sep 08, 2008 1:16 pm

Hi There

Is anyone attending the P5 National at Brooklands on Sunday 14th September? The Museum opens at 10am and closes at 5pm. Entrance to the site is via the Gallaher/Campbell Entrance, which is off the Brooklands Road (B374).

The Organiser told me that he has around 80 Pre-Bookings. We'll be there with two P6's (V8 & 2000TC), hope to see more. (Hope the Weather cheers up)..... :D

Cheers,
Mick

I really should make the effort & zip down there in our P5B but I haven't booked. It would be an excuse to MoT her as well. I only did a couple of hundred miles since the last one so she should pass o.k (touch wood).

Well, the Weather sure did us proud, what a perfect day for a run out in the Rover. We drove there in convoy (One P5, two P5B's and two P6's), a great way to spend a Sunny Sunday Morning.

There were some fantastic Rovers present at Brooklands with several making the trip across the channel. Here's a couple of pics of the P6 Line-up.

I just realised that I didn't get a photo of the beautiful Yellow 2200TC that came from Belgium, dammit :roll:

Mick
