Re­liant Scim­i­tar GTE

RSSOC plans to mark the oc­ca­sion in style

Practical Classics (UK) - - CONTENTS -

This year is the 50th An­niver­sary of the launch of the Scim­i­tar GTE launch at the 1968 Mo­tor Show. The Re­liant Sabre & Scim­i­tar Own­ers’ Club will cel­e­brate this mile­stone with mul­ti­ple events around the coun­try.

The club ex­hibits at many events through­out the year, in­clud­ing two NEC shows, Silverstone Clas­sic and an In­ter­na­tional meet­ing, plus at­tend­ing many lo­cal shows across the coun­try. There are lo­cal monthly ‘Nog­gin’ meet­ings through­out the UK where own­ers and prospec­tive own­ers meet in an in­for­mal re­laxed at­mos­phere at lo­cal pubs to dis­cuss their cars. The club web­site (scim­i­tar­web.co.uk) pro­vides in­for­ma­tion about the club and the cars, plus a Dis­cus­sion Fo­rum, where a wealth of in­for­ma­tion is shared. The club shop is also on the web­site, sell­ing mer­chan­dise and pub­li­ca­tions. The club’s ‘Slice’ mag­a­zine, which is sent out to mem­bers bi-monthly, is packed with in­for­ma­tion, tech­ni­cal ar­ti­cles and re­ports from events. The club will host the

Scim­fest week­end (Au­gust 17-19) at the Cur­bor­ough Sprint Cir­cuit north of Lich­field with an Au­totest and var­i­ous other ac­tiv­i­ties through­out the week­end. The event is open to the pub­lic on the Sun­day, which is when the main Sprint com­pe­ti­tion is held with Scim­i­tars, Fer­rari’s and many other clas­sic cars tak­ing part.
