Two days to Rover­fest!

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The 50th an­niver­sary of the in­tro­duc­tion of the V8 en­gine that pow­ered so many Bri­tish cars is to be cel­e­brated this week­end at Rover­fest.

Or­gan­is­ers hope that more than 800 V8 ve­hi­cles will be on dis­play there – the leg­endary Buick block was fit­ted to lux­ury sa­loons, pres­ti­gious off-road ve­hi­cles and sports cars from 1967 and 2016.

The three-day event, put to­gether by the Joint Rover Clubs, is on 11-13 Au­gust at Wrox­all Abbey, War­wick­shire, a venue cho­sen for its close prox­im­ity to the for­mer Rover plants in Coven­try and Soli­hull.

Mike Ma­her, chair­man of the Rover Sports Reg­is­ter, says: ‘We’re look­ing for­ward to see­ing some rare and won­der­ful cars.’
