It is with Sincere Sadness that I have to inform all Club Members and Entrants, That The Norfolk and Norwich Rover Owners Club has had to Cancel Our Rally at Bressingham Steam Museum on Sunday 20th September.
Purely due to the New Government Guidelines that come into force on Monday 14th September, unfortunately it is due to Public Safety that we have made our devastating decision.
All Club Members and Rally entrants have been sent emails – Please check your Inbox.
If you are a Postal Member/Rally Entrant, you will receive a phone call from the club.
Please stay safe and take care

Classics at Glemham – Sun 6th Sept
A damp, but sunny early morning met us all as our Club Members drove their Classics to Glemham for our 2nd Club Stand at a Rally this season.
A big field in front of Glemham Hall, near Woodbridge was our location. This was soon filled with a sea of socially distanced parked Vintage and Modern Classic Cars of every make and model you could imagine, along with a gorgeous selection of high performance cars of interest, including Porsche, Lotus.
Glemham as a show, only now in it’s second year. Embraced and carried out Covid Government Guidelines brilliantly. It proves that with a good layout and thoughtful organisation, a Rally can indeed be done even in these current circumstances.
Not even having time too dust off our new Club Gazebo from Stonham Barns, we set up our stand in a line of variety. We had a very smart, but small group of 4 cars. A Modern 75 Estate, An MG ZT 260 V8, An MG ZT 1800 Turbo and 2 P5B Coupes.
Our Gazebo was so easy too see from a distance, all our Club Members who visited the show found us very easily and called by for a chat. It was fantastic to see so many of them, some of which we had not seen since last year.
After a near full year of uncertain times…….. 13 brave intrepid Rover club members set out to Stonham Barns.
This was the very first large scale Rally the Club has attended since 2019. Set up began early and our new Gazebo proved very easy to assemble !!
Our Stand had 1 Jaguar (C/O Mr P Cane…..who’s P6 had misbehaved too much to bring ), A P5B, A P4, A Modern 75 Saloon, A Modern 75 Estate, A 216 Cabriolet and an MG ZT.
Cloudy, but dry weather saw over 700 cars arrive and a green field became a sea shiny paint and chrome. It was a wonderful sight for everyone after so long. Social Distancing was very respectful and there were lots of smiling faces.
With so many lovely Classics to see our members all took turns wandering as the temperatures rose higher and returning to our stand and our new gazebo for shelter and a sit down.
Well Done to Stonham Barns for being Brave in the Current Climate to host the Rally and thanks to the members who had faith enough to spend a fabulous day out with us.
