    Sorry you are unable to make it this year.
    Our 2018 National Show will be held at Brooklands Museum, Weybridge, Surrey on Sunday 5th August 2018.
    Of course you can come to many shows all over the country where we will be exhibiting.

    Attached new updated entry form for Castle Howard on Sunday 6th August 2017.
    This year instead of having a small rally plaque, each pre-booked entrant will receive a rally gift that will be more useful than a just a plaque.

    All that is, is two clubs holding their national rallies on the same day. The Roverfest lot have picked a date that only relates to P5B production, and last I checked, the P5 club isn't attending. They have very little knowledge of V8 history - even the website is full of rubbish.

    So don't class it as this huge event vs a club national rally. It's one P6 club vs the other.. I won't be attending either this year, as York is too far for me to travel. I will go down to Brooklands next year though, as that's only an hour from me.

    I booked the P6 Rover Owners Club National Show in July 2016 and will be held on Sunday 6th August 2017.
    As far as I am aware the Roverfest show is the following weekend.
    The P6ROC celebrated 50 years of the V8 engine in 2015 at The Heritage Motor Museum, Gaydon - This was when Rover were licenced to manufacture the V8 engine.

    My apologies; they are on two different weekends.

    There are a lot of dates connected with the V8.

    1964 - V8 engine seen at Mercury Marine and shipped back to the UK
    1964 - V8 engine installed in first prototype P6B, then known as a P7 - different from the P7 6-cylinders
    from then onwards, you have the first engines shipped over, signing of the licence agreement, installation into more P6B prototypes, then P5B prototypes, then P5B going live, then P6B going live.
