The Rover P4 – Devon Branch 70th Anniversary Weekend

The Rover P4 – Devon Branch 70th Anniversary Weekend
The Cheltenham Chase Hotel
Shurdington Road, Gloucester GL3 4PB

Friday 6th – Sunday 8th September 2019

The Rover P4 Drivers Guild Devon Branch would like to present the anniversary weekend.
Open to all Rover owners and clubs.

This 70th anniversary for the Rover P4 in 2019 will be a celebration not to be missed, to bring members and their vehicles together to mark 70 years of this remarkable car.
We as a branch of the guild took it upon ourselves to have a celebration for the car we love and cherish, but thought why not open it up to all members of the guild and other rover owners, as if it was not for the members the guild the guild would not exist today, plus if we encouraged other rover clubs to join us in this celebration it may help future generations to keep years of anniversaries going in years to come as the cars get passed down and well cared for.

A lot of planning and hours has gone into arranging what we think will be a memorable weekend and for those travelling long distances and from abroad you have the option to extend your stay before and after the event and enjoy the area of the Cotswolds and further afield. If you to extend your stay please state this on the back of the booking form and add the hotel room costs accordingly. Then we will ensure your stay is secure and all confirmations will be emailed to you with a unique reference booking code.
