2021 Spring Rover Rally Hosted by Rover P4 Drivers' Guild

As previously announced, the Spring Rover Rally at Burghley House (near Stamford) will be taking place on 23rd May. As it stands the rules are not totally clear but we will continue with the arrangements for the event. Booking has now closed on 10th May 2021. This gives us the most time possible to learn more about the Covid situation but still time to complete the booking process. At that point if it is clear we will not be allowed to proceed we will cancel the event for 2021. As a backup we have already booked the venue for 22nd May 2022 should it be cancelled this year. If the event does have to be cancelled nearer to the date and we have already taken your booking, then your booking will be automatically carried over to 2022.

We will be welcoming Rovers of all ages to the event via the Joint Rover Clubs to give people something to look forward to in the calendar. Due to situation we are in and the size of the venue, we will be limiting numbers to strictly 300 cars and we ask you to respect the 2 metre social distancing guidance on the day.

THE SPRING ROVER RALLY WILL BE OPEN ONLY TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE BOOKED IN ADVANCE

If you have not made an advance booking you will not be allowed to join our gathering.

For the Spring Rover Rally there is a booking fee of £7.00 to cover the event memento, programme and administration. We will also be gathering the parking fee of £7.00 on behalf of Burghley House (this has increased since we held the event in 2019). The total is £14.00. This must be paid in advance to the Guild with your booking for the event and cannot be paid on the day. Where possible please make your booking via the Guild website's e-Commerce service at www.roverp4dg.org.uk

Rally cards and further event details will be sent out after 8th May – you will need this for access on the day.

The site at Burghley offers many attractions with the house and gardens that should be open. Last year the House was open from 10.30am – 4.30pm. Numbers of people in the House will be limited at any one time to allow people to social distance happily, and stop any queue build-up. It is planned for this to continue in 2021. We will again have the offer of 2 for 1 on entry to the house. House entry tickets will be released once it opens, depending on Government Guidelines. Due to the situation you must complete the following two steps for every individual, or pair of individuals:
1. Book a timed ticket for each person – Booking your timeslot is free of charge on Burghley’s website. Timed tickets will be released 2 weeks prior to your visit generally.
2. Purchase one on-line ticket. We will issue your Rover Event ID on the day when you arrive and you will show this to the ticket desk staff to be given the second member complimentary access.

You will find everything on the website www.burghley.co.uk/plan-your-visit/house-and-gardens

The Gardens will be closed between 1.00 and 2.00pm for cleaning, so visitors will need to plan this into their visit. There are hand sanitisers at all entries to the House, Gardens, Orangery and retail outlets, and visitors are encouraged to use these before entry to any of these points by Burghley staff members. There is a limit of 20 people per half hour. All visitors are asked to wear facemasks in the House and hand sanitise on entry. Dogs are allowed in the grounds (kept on a lead at all times) but not inside the House.

We really hope the event will take place but please be aware it could be cancelled at very short notice. Please check the Guild website or Facebook Group before travelling.

About the Guild

The Rover P4 Drivers' Guild was formed in 1977 to cater for owners of the Rover 60, 75, 80, 90, 95, 100, 105, and 110 range of cars manufactured between 1950 and 1964. The aim of the Guild is to help P4 owners to preserve their cars for regular use by assisting them to locate spares, literature, advice, competent mechanics and other services to keep their cars in a roadworthy condition.

Overdrive Magazine

The Guild magazine "Overdrive" is published every two months; it contains maintenance hints and tips, repair information, members' experiences, lists of events, local meetings and classified advertisements.

Regional Branches

Several regional branches have evolved to hold regular monthly meetings, organise local rallies, and to provide self-help between members.

Rallies

A list of meetings and contacts can be found in "Overdrive". The Guild organises several rallies throughout the warmer months, often in conjunction with other Rover clubs.

Regalia

The Guild offers a range of official regalia and remanufactured parts. More details of these can be found in "Overdrive".
