THE year is going so quickly – no sooner had the chimes of Big Ben rung in 2006, and summer’s almost upon us. Not sure whether that’s because I’m getting older or because I don’t seem to have any spare time these days – but either way, the passage of time seems rather frightening to me…
Anyway, part of the Summer fixtures is the annual BMC/BL Rally in Peterborough, and as per usual, austin-rover.co.uk will be at the show, representing the little loved corners of the great manufacturer’s range – as well as the more mainstream stuff. Last year, we had an example of all significant cars offered in the range since the introduction of the Mini, and this year, we want to do the same.
At the moment, we have no organiser for the show, and are looking for one (I’ll be out of the country at the time), but we’re hoping someone will step forward, and gather together all the cars we will arrange for in the next couple of months.

So, if you have an interesting car, which you reckon would look good on our stand, or can offer any assistance in the organisation, we’d be glad to hear from you.
We’re also looking for an example of each of the six R8s offered by Rover in the early Nineties (after failing last year), and as it’s the 20th anniversary of the Rover 800, and the 30th of the SD1, we’d like some special examples of each.
The show is held on the first weekend in August, and there’s plenty of accommodation nearby for those travelling from further afield…
