Diamond Jubilee Rally
Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon July 25th & 26th 2015

This is a very special year! It is the diamond jubilee of the Series 1 Rapier in 1955. And to celebrate this landmark event we are setting up our rally on this special occasion at the prestigious GAYDON Heritage Museum. It is one of those never to be repeated MUST GO celebrations.

The dates are 25th and 26th July 2015 and the gates will be open from 8 am to 11 pm on Saturday and 8 am to 6 pm on Sunday.

Camping at Gaydon - Change of Plan.

If you were planning to camp at Gaydon over the weekend - please read.

Due to lack of advance bookings; Gaydon have cancelled the camping facility on-site at Gaydon. We've expressed our disappointment & tried to re-negotiate, to no avail; so here is the alternative site at Warmington, about 6 miles away or a 10 minute drive. On the plus side, prices are cheaper than the Gaydon site, but we've not had the opportunity to vet or find out what facilities are available at the site, so please discuss your requirements with the owners if you are planning to book a pitch.

Telephone Number: 07983 144681

Apologies on behalf of the organising committee, for any inconvenience caused by the change of venue.

Just a post script on this:

Contact is Sean who is very helpful.

There is an area for camping / tents, so this is not just for caravans.

This morning (1 July) there were around 10 spaces available for caravans with electrics & plenty without, also plenty of camping pitches available, but please do book in ASAP if you are intending to come & do mention you are there for the SROC event at Gaydon.

Again, we are very sorry about the venue change for campers, but this site would seem to be a very good substitute and is only a few miles away from the Heritage Centre.
