AROnline is 10 years old in 2011! That’s something to celebrate so we’re holding a birthday party and you’re all invited. We’re getting together on Saturday 16 July and, because the Heritage Motor Centre at Gaydon is the spiritual home of the website, where much of its early research was undertaken, it’s only right to have our birthday party there…
The plan is to meet at Gaydon for 10am, have a tour of the cars on display, where Keith Adams will be on hand to hopefully answer all the toughest questions about Austin Rover’s past (without getting too depressed). The Heritage Motor Centre’s cars tend to be rotated, so we can’t guarantee what will be on display in advance, but we’ll try and liaise with the management to ensure the more interesting prototypes with the most interesting stories will be there to talk about. Entry to the museum will be at a specially reduced rate for people attending our birthday party.
We’re hoping to have a few special guests on the day – one of whom will, hopefully, cut the cake – and will let you know who they are nearer the time.
More information will be added to this page once it’s clear what numbers we’re dealing with and what dates look best. For now, please register your interest below and we’ll get things underway.
See you on 16 July!
