Following my suggestion that Club newsletters should not put too tight a copyright restriction on their material, i.e. allow other ARC clubs (and me!) to use it, but with its source duly credited, I'm pleased to see that several clubs have already responded - thanks folks - the spirit of co-operation is alive and well!

And whilst on that subject, anything quoted in ARC News is, of course, copyright free - you may use it as you wish, but I would prefer that you do not cut it into squares and punch a hole in the corner and hang them in a certain small room of the house!


  • Sunday 7th July 1996 - the Heritage Motor Centre hold their "Heritage Vintage & Classic Motoring Show" from 10.00 a.m. onwards. There will be over 400 pre- and post-war cars and motorcycles on display, autojumble stands, and club displays of Minis, Alvis, Daf, and Wild Cat.

    Other attractions include Horse & Carriage rides, Pit Stop Challenge. Penny Arcade, Driving Displays, Children's Roadway, Quad Bikes, Jazz Band, and of course the 4 x 4 Experience rides on the offroad circuit.

    The usual museum displays will be available, including 200 historic cars, cut away cars and engines, Lord Nuffield's office, a children's' drawing area, etc.

    Normal admission fees will apply (no discounts), and special "Grounds only" tickets will be available if you only want to see the outside activities and not the Museum.

    You can stay on if you wish for an evening's entertainment of words and music (from 7.45 p.m. onwards) given by celebrities John Nettles, Jenny Agutter, jazz singer Sara Colman and keyboards maestro Al Gurr. Tickets for this 'Just Tyre' sponsored evening event are available in advance from the Heritage Centre at a cost of 10 each.

    For more information on the day's events or the evening show contact Kate Watson or Hilary Pead on 01926 641188.

  • July 13/14th All Rover Rally at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon. Booking forms for caravan rally and display space are available. If you're coming as a 'club' or representing your club, bring your club flag and pole - let's have a photo opportunity showing that "Above all it's a Rover Club".

    Don't forget your membership cards and don't forget to come onto the rally field first to get your discounted tickets. If you go straight into the Museum entrance you will pay full price - you have been warned!

  • 4th/6th October 1996 is the date for this year's "Majors Trial" at Eastnor. All ARC clubs are invited to this MROC hosted event, which this year takes on a different format to that used in previous years.
    • There will be no competitive safari.
    • The trial will take place over both Saturday and Sunday, allowing an earlier finish to each day's activities.
    • Mobile catering will be available on site during the day.
    • Prize giving will be in the Eastnor Bowls club (just behind the wood yard) with full bar facilities, and meals available.

    As usual teams of three drivers representing their club will compete for the Major's 'Rose Bowl', with a shield going to the highest placed team driving standard vehicles. A maximum of three teams is allowed from each club.

    Closing date for entries is 17th September, and they must be pre-booked and pre-paid.
