A BIG Thank you to everyone that came along to SAABFEST at Prescott Hill Speed Climb. Saturday was fabulous with a great turnout; The show field was packed and at one stage were getting very concerned whether we’d get everyone in! Best car results were a great mix of known and new cars/participants, details below. Saturday evening meal went very well with excellent entertainment to follow. Sunday Hill climb was something else, We have never seen so many people smiling all enjoying the spectacle, sound of the Saab’s running up the hill, from cruisers to flat out competition touring cars. Massive thanks to the attendees, sponsors, Dragon Saab volunteers, Dream Rides for charity drivers and the wonderful Prescott Hill team, you’ve all made this a very special event. We are also extremely proud to hear we didn’t have one off or red flag, this is great especially as the marshals said we were rather quick up the hill, He thinks it could be a record, good work all.
Here's the winners of the show day:
Overall Show winner - Carlsson Cup – Chris Hamley
Runner up – Christopher Mills
Furthest Travelled – Nicolas Demuynck – Belgium
After many years of admirable service the traditional Saab Owners Club roundel is to be superseded with an all new logo. However, do not worry, the SOC roundel that many of us all know and love and instantly recognise as the Saab OwnersClub identity will not disappear, it will simply become the clubs ‘classic’ or ‘retro’ logo. The new logo is a more modern image that we hope will appeal to everyone,both classic and modern Saab owners.
As a trial we have had a couple of copies of the Driver magazine, or perhaps newsletter would be a better description, from the 1970's scanned. They make for interesting reading!
