French Rover Club 30th Anniversary in Baie de Somme, 18-19 May 2019

French Rover Club 30th Anniversary in Baie de Somme, 18-19 May 2019

Post Number:#1  Post by Scoubix » January 2nd, 2019, 6:18

My fellow Enthusiasts :)

In early June 1989, several people led by our founding president, Philippe Jorge, got together to create a classic car club aimed at preserving Rover and Land Rover classic cars. As these cars were scarce on French roads, it was decided to extend the club coverage to other marginal British car brands, which were even less known to the general French public yet could be perceived as sharing the same pedigree of fine British motoring. As a result, cars from the likes of Alvis, Vanden Plas, Daimler (pre-Jaguar merger), Sunbeam, Singer and others joined the ranks alongside Rovers (P2, P3, P4, P5, P6…).

Thus the « British Classic Cars & Rover Club » was created, collectively known as « BCCRC » or « French Rover Club ».

Over the last 30 years, a lot has happened and our club has evolved. Teams have changed, people have come and gone, though several original members are still with us, and our beloved brand died a most painful death in April 2005, after several years of industrial torment. From initially being a club preserving fine classic British cars, among which Rovers have always been predominant, we have slowly but inevitably evolved into being a club encompassing all Rover cars, from the earliest ones to the more modern ones, while insuring that the heritage and history of the viking ship brand were being preserved, and thus truly embracing our role as being the one and only « French Rover Club ».

As we celebrate our 30th Anniversary this year, we invite you to join us in the wonderful « Baie de Somme » region of France, for a weekend of activities and Rover motoring, on the 18th and 19th of May 2019.

The detailed agenda can be downloaded below, here are a few highlights :

  • travel across the Baie with the historic steamrail train, with a gastronomic dinner served on board on Saturday evening. A tour of the steam train workshops is also planned for those interested.
  • Car convoy along the Baie roads and guided tour of the Marquenterre bird reserve.

There are two options for registering :

Feel free to reach out for further details, and looking forward to seeing some of you out there. The Baie de Somme is only about 100kms south of Calais...so no excuse :DD

Cars and steam trains....my 2 weaknesses. I have to work out the logistics of attending both this meeting and the one in Schleswig-Holstein, not sure that I can do both.

Now back home after a splendid long weekend well organised by the French Rover Club ably led by Nicolas, to whom I give a big "thank you!" for the invitation.
Cars and trains, a kind of heaven.
