Saab National 2015
The 2015 National will be held at Cadwell Park in the glorious Lincolnshire Wolds from Friday 3 to Sunday 5 July, combining a Track Day on the Sunday with the usual festivities of our annual national event. It is appreciated that the date is earlier than usual, however members have been asking for an event where cars move and this is the closest date to the ‘normal’ date which we could secure.
We are hoping to provide an online booking option shortly.
Saabs on the Marches 2015
A leisurely tour of the Brecon Beacons and the Wye valley in beautiful south Wales, starting at the Hampton by Hilton hotel in Newport, with a meet and greet on the afternoon of Friday 26th June, followed by an evening three course hot buffet. Saturday the 27th will be spent touring the Brecon Beacons then returning once again to the Hampton hotel for an evening three course hot buffet meal. The tour will be continued on Sunday the 28th June finishing after lunch, allowing plenty of time to travel home.

The Saab Club of Great Britain took place on the 25th October at Humberside Saab. We would like to thank Humberside Saab for their generosity in allowing us to use their showroom and for the fantastic hospitality.

Great Weather, Great Turnout!
SAAB (or rather NEVS - National Electric Vehicle Sweden) are producing cars again. After a gap of two years the production lines are moving again. Sadly cars are only going to the Chinese and Swedish markets, at least to start with.

SAAB INTERNATIONAL 2013
The Saab International was a tremendous success! Over 800 people came to Wicksteed Park to enjoy the 2013 International Meeting of Saab Clubs, over a fantastic August weekend. There are now photos of the international in SOC photo gallery.
Thanks to everyone who turned out and supported our National Rally at Wicksteed Park last weekend. It proved to be a very popular location with the biggest attendance for some time.
We counted well over 200 cars on Saturday and 150 on Sunday, plus a whole load of us camping as well.
The range of cars was just fantastic, from a 1952 92B to a 2010 9-5 and including six Sonetts! Erik Carlsson said that he had not seen such a great line up of Saabs for a long time and that he thoroughly enjoyed himself.
The weather was kind to us too.
Thanks also to everyone who helped us leading up to and during the weekend. We could not have done it without you.
A warm welcome to all of the new members that joined our Club over the weekend.
And this Event Gallery has quite a few photos including some of Lance Coles.
See you all again next year!
|The winners of our Best Car competition on Sunday were:
The Mick Sollars trophy for best two stroke went to Mike Thompson.
The Erik Carlsson trophy for best car overall is awarded to the car receiving the highest number of votes from the public vote, and this went to the 9000 of Andy Boorman, which received 24 individual votes from the 100 or so received.
We are Many, we are Saab
Many thanks to all our members who turned out to support this event. What a great success with over 250 cars and 500 people!
Erik Carlsson who joined us at Cranfield said "this has been the best day that I have had for ages and it has been fantastic to meet so many nice people"
We joined over 40 countries putting on more than 100 meetings in showing our support for Saab and all former employees. Let's all hope that potential investors will act soon to save Saab again.
