    Soooo, with 6 months until PoL, and next year marking 20 years of the BRM, can we do something extra special with the display stand?

    I'm thinking motorshow style layout, with information boardsboards about some of the cars, special info on the Wombles, maybe a backdrop banner with some information about the development process, etc?

    I love PoL, but something extra for people to read and do I think would be great for people and really give us a chance to mark the occasion at the same time? :)

    Without being a killjoy,with POL's record for getting called off,a lot of work could be done to end up with a cancellation,then there is POL always wanting liability insurance for displays,I think a better idea may be to talk with the 75 ZT forum who are also 20 years old and see about something at Gaydon...you know near where you live :)

    Yeah POL is ok but it’s lost it’s appeal to me now as it gets cancelled more than not!

    20 years at Gaydon sounds ok, but it will be 21 years for the early BRMS, they are 20 this year so will that work?? Just saying :D

    How many times has it been cancelled in the last 13years?

    Liability insurance isn't an issue, we used to get that via Lancaster Insurance for the British Car Enthusiasts rally that we ran in Kettering for about 5years.

    If you want a 1998 model celebration, I suggest the Wombles get together for a Christmas party :laugh:

    But it is fair comment, a suitable backup plan at the very least would be recommend. :)

    My wife insists on having her birthday at the same time every year! It just so happens to be the weekend I go to Angouleme for the historic Racing!

    They've rejected our last two applications after a number of years in attendance, as apparently, the cars are not old enough.

    However, having been to this years show, the number of other 1999 and newer Rovers on display was proportionately quite high compared with other marques and ages.

    The cars are now old enough (20 years) but they are over subscribed.

    I have applied for Classic restoration show but no news yet :(

    I thought this too-a fair amount of 1990’s and 2000’s stuff. Here’s hoping for next year, especially as the BRM is 20.

    Don’t get too excited I suggested in this years application it would be the 20 anniversary of the press cars and the first production cars. That did not work :laugh:
