National Rally 2012


Thanks to everyone who turned out and supported our National Rally at Wicksteed Park. 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.

See you all again next year!
