The National BL Day, which is held on an annual basis at Nene Park in Peterborough has become something of a Mecca for all those afflicted with “Leyland-itis”.
Many of the country’s owners’ clubs attend this meeting – and as a result, there is a fascinating mixture of BMC>Rover machinery from the Oxford/Cambridge brigade, through the Maxi, Marina, Allegro triumvirate to more modern cars such as the Rover 800, 200 and 400. All in all, if there is a BMC>Rover car you would like to see in the flesh, you will see it at Peterborough.
Needless to say, thanks to the hard work of everyone involved, the show was a great success for Austin-Rover.co.uk and hopefully. it will be the first of many, many more. Obviously, my own thanks go to those who brought their cars along, and those who visited the show stand. Let’s hope that it generated even more interest in the website, and the community that is building up around it.
Next year, we hope to see even more people join in… all are welcome
