As the dust begins to settle after another hectic RSSOC National Sporting Weekend at Curborough it is time for a little reflection and a lot of thanks. Curborough 2014 was (as usual) a long hard weekend of work for the Committee and other helpers, but hopefully all those who attended had a good time and enjoyed themselves. We are very sorry that the planned parade laps of the birthday cars (the GT Coupé being 50, Small Sports being 30 and the Middlebridge being 25 years old) did not take place, but sadly we found ourselves short of helping hands and time this year and it was simply a case of us being too busy and not being able to fit everything into the time available. Hopefully the Anniversary displays on the RSSOC stand at the NEC in November will help make up for it. We would like to offer huge thanks on behalf of all of the Committee to all those who gave up part of their weekend to help with gate admission, track marshal, clean the toilets and assist on the Autotest, etc. (plus many other jobs). Your help is invaluable and without it our weekend at Curborough simply could not take place. Thank you. As we would like Curborough 2015 to be bigger and better if anyone has any good ideas for things that you would like to see at that event then please contact anyone on the Committee (details on Slice page 3 or on this website) and share your thoughts with us in plenty of time. We will consider anything and if we think it will benefit all and is achievable then hopefully we can add your ideas onto next year’s programme. Also if anyone wants to help out we will always welcome volunteers to help the weekend go smoothly for all. Thanks again everyone.
Princess Anne will help celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the Middlebridge Scimitar at the annual Gatcombe Horse Trials 20-21 September 2014, which will feature a display of up to 40 Middlebridge Scimitars. See this document and http://shar.es/LVE3p. Also, a news item is in the 13 August issue of Classic Car Weekly.
At the Bristol Classic Car Show (at the Royal Bath & West Showground near Shepton Mallet, Somerset) over the weekend of 14 & 15 June Tony & Jaki Heath’s white Sabre Six Convertible (RUR) won ‘Best Sports Car or Convertible’ in show and there should be a report feature in Classic Car Weekly. Also, David Peek’s red GTC was awarded a ‘Highly Commended’ rosette at the show.
The club has registrars for each model range who try to maintain a record of as many of Reliant's sportscars as possible. See the Registrars page for further information and contact details.
