The Rover Sports Reg­is­ter

The club for ev­ery Rover en­thu­si­ast

Practical Classics (UK) - - CLUBS EVENTS -

The Rover Sports Reg­is­ter (RSR) was formed in Oc­to­ber 1953 by en­thu­si­asts for the pre-war Rover Sports Tourer, the rea­son for the dis­tinc­tive name. Mem­ber­ship soon ex­tended to other Rover mod­els. To­day, the club has mem­bers with Rover bi­cy­cles, mo­tor­cy­cles and cars from 1904 through to the last Rover 75s built, as well as all types of Land Rover.

The RSR’S bi-monthly mag­a­zine, Free­wheel, cov­ers all Rover mod­els. The club has an on­line fo­rum and is ac­tive on so­cial me­dia. Its web­site has an on­line shop, where you can join and buy club work­shop man­u­als, parts lists and other items.

Mem­ber ben­e­fits in­clude a club spares scheme, re­gional meet­ings (come and share great com­pany), ral­lies and other events. The club also has ref­er­ence li­braries and ex­perts for tech­ni­cal is­sues and has ne­go­ti­ated dis­counts, in­clud­ing a Club In­sur­ance scheme and sup­ply of tyres.

The RSR will present a se­lec­tion of the mod­els it sup­ports on stand 4-450 at the Lan­caster In­sur­ance Clas­sic Mo­tor Show, Novem­ber 9-11. These are a Rover mo­tor­cy­cle and ex­am­ples of P4, P6 and 75 that fea­tured in Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics.

Three ex­hibits share sig­nif­i­cant birth­days – the 70th of the Rover P3 range and Land Rover, rep­re­sented by the ear­li­est pre-pro­duc­tion ve­hi­cle reg­is­tered, fresh from its Span­ish trip, and the 50th of the Rover P5 range.

The RSR al­ways wel­comes new mem­bers. To join a friendly, ac­tive club, man­aged for the ben­e­fit of its mem­bers, sim­ply visit stand 4-450 or join on­line at thersr.co.uk. Tele­phone en­quiries to 01824 790280, or email en­[email protected]
