Here's just a few photos I took at the Sabra/Sabre International - (The Cotswolds - Geoff Cooper Memorial Rally 17.09.2017)

It was great to meet up with Sabra and Sabre owners and see their beautiful cars!

Great photos Dave. I'm really sorry I couldn't be there this year due to a holiday clash, but next year I promise..!

Not forgetting NNG who came all the way up to study 7EUE and Geoff Pinch who joined us at Prescott.

Do you mean the blue car with red & white number plates? If so, it's from Belgium :-)

Thanks Dave for the excellent photos and thanks to you and Jim for helping out with our route.

We all had a great weekend visiting Gloucester Cathedral and the Quays and canals, Prescott hillclimb and the Bugatti Museum and Bourton-on-the-Water and its Cotswold Motor Museum.

We had 9 cars together at one point which was quite impressive. The weather was great and none of the cars misbehaved in any way. Not bad as their average age was about 55 years.

Two of John and Pam's sons were in our group but, even so, I fear that the average age of the attendees was a little higher!! And none of us broke down either!
