I just got the Rimmer Bros offer. I've been buying recently and I have nothing left to get :slapme

Shall we start a list? I've had my "rally pack" though in the last couple of weeks.

Mmmmm, interesting! Might be financially difficult for me, though, as I have just spent rather a lot on a new toy and there is also another Rover project arriving towards the end of August. :blushing

Entry Form

On line entries for Roverfest have now closed, you are still welcome to turn up on the day. The entry fee of £10 will be collected at the gate. Thank you for your interest.


From: http://www.roverfest.uk/entry-form/

So yes, you can :)

My windscreen display card says "ROVERFEST - Class F17." I'm assuming that's R200/400 at the very least, and puts you somewhere in the park next to similar cars...

GTi John and I will be donning our hi-vis waistcoats to direct you to our allocated area when you arrive. The whole field will be organised by model type.
