Hi John,

Count me in!, i'll be there.

Perhaps put a posting under Davrian Marque as i hadn't noticed it under events until Mr Cooper gave me a nudge!.

50 cars for the 50th anniversary!.

Dave.

It will be good to celebrate 50 years and get a good gathering of Davrians.
John were you intending to just have an informal gathering, or register as a club display, looking at the CC website suggests that club displays are only for rally type cars? (Yes I know some Davrians are rally cars but the majority of them are road/ circuit cars!)
Although my new garage is not useable yet I would certainly aim to get my car there and will encourage Neville to get his Mk7 and 8 there too.

I will discuss this further with Tim and Rhodri - It was Rhodri's idea and I believe the thought was that we could form a Darrian/Davrian display area.
I will call Tim tonight to get his thoughts.

I received confirmation from Tim Duffee this evening that he is keen to be actively involved with the celebrations and we will be aimng for a club display.

I look forward to seeing many of you at Castle Combe in 2017.

Well, this would be a great target to get the car fully sorted & visiting its roots.

Do we have an exact date for this - more exact than "September 2017"

If my aim of getting my Mk8 road-worthy for the Imp Club National 2017 holds true, I'll try my best to make this too.

Would be great to see a range of different models and configurations, having only ever seen a couple of models other than my own.

LATEST UPDATE

The date for the Castle Combe Rallyday is now confirmed for Saturday 23rd September 2017.

Tim Duffee and I would like to organise a display to include at least one of each version of Davrian, Darrian and Monte Carlo, so please let me know if you would like your car to be included. Whether you would like to take part in the display or simply turn up on the day, please let me know ASAP so that I can confirm arrangements with the organisers.

I will provide further information as it becomes available.
