Events

Here you will find information on the events that the branch or members of the branch will be present at, these will be a combination of our own events and other events that we take part in. At the moment the list also includes national/local events that we may not be at but that may be of interest to our membership. Events will be listed in chronological order for ease of navigation. Our regular monthly meetings are listed on a separate page, here.

Where events are externally organised we will endeavour to provide an organiser’s contact details here too. For our own events please refer to the contact details on the Contact the Guild page, here.

Due to Covid-19 all events are subject to change, please make contact with the relevent organisers for the latest information.

6th May 2021Spring Rover Rally Hosted by Rover P4 Drivers' Guild This event is open to all Rovers as usual, in the Spring of 2021. We will be returning to the very popular venue that was home to our 2019 National Rally - Burghley House. This was a great day out and the site offers many benefits for hosting a large gathering such as this. It will be a one day event. Booking will open later in the year and will be limited to a total of 300 cars so you'll need to get in quick!

Please note that the Spring Rover Rally is not the Rover P4 Drivers' Guild National Rally for 2021 - that event remains at Roverfest in August 2021. The Spring Rover Rally 2021 is to provide some welcome extra events for the 2021 rally season

Sywell Aerodrome, near Northampton

Following the success of the award winning Roverfest 2017 weekend, the Joint Rover Clubs (JRC) of Great Britain (consisting of the The Rover Sports Register, The Rover P4 Drivers’ Guild, The Rover P5 Club, The Rover P6 Club, The Rover SD1 Club, The Rover 200/400 Owners Club, The Rover Coupe Owner Club, and The Rover 75 and MG ZT owners club) will be joining forces to stage one big celebratory “Rover Fest” weekend.

For 2021 only, the event will replace the usual National Rally that we hold specifically for the Rover P4 Drivers’ Guild in May. This approach has been adopted by all clubs in the JRC for 2021.

The event is being centred upon Sywell Aerodrome, near Northampton, and the JRC has gained exclusive use of the Art Deco 1930s themed Aviator Hotel from Friday 6th August through to Sunday 8th August.
