The Rover 800 Owners Club, would like to invite you to this years ‘Pride of Longbridge’ event, at Cofton Park.

It would be great if you’re able to make it. As with previous years, we will have an informal stand at the show, which you’re more than welcome to come and park your 800, on. If you’re not bringing your 800, parking is available on the road running alongside the park, pop on over and say hello!

The postcode, for your Sat Nav – is B31 2BQ


Saturday 15th April 2017 – 10am – 4pm

As usual, the Cowley Convoy will be taking place. Roll up, roll up – now’s the time to enter the Cowley Convoy from Cowley to the Pride of Longbridge on Saturday 15th April! Please enter here (it’s free to join us) –

Once again, we have two routes. The scenic one which takes our usual route of Woodstock, Chipping Norton, Moreton in Marsh, Broadway etc, and also a motorway route were we join the M40 at junction 9 (Bicester). The scenic route will leave at 8.00am and the motorway route at 8.30am.

As usual, the Cowley Convoy is completely free to join and we have don’t have a cut off date for entries; you can even just turn up on the day. However, it is helpful for us to have a rough idea of how many people and cars are going to join us, so please do register.

We will also have entirely optional run plaques and car flags for sale at cost price, but please feel free to bring your own flags etc. Run plaques cost £5 and car flags are £8. The cut off date to order both run plaques and flags is Sunday 2nd April.

The Cowley Convoy is open to all cars which are eligible to attend the Pride of Longbridge, so in short any car built at Longbridge, any car built at Cowley up to 2000 (so the end of Rover 75 production at Cowley), and cars built under BMC, BL, ARG, RG or MG-R.

If you want to come as a club, please let us know in advance and also tell the marshals at Cowley so that we can make sure that you get parked together and are set off together.

We will have free tea, coffee and biscuits at MINI Plant Oxford, Cowley, and also toilets. We would recommend you take advantage of the toilets at Cowley because with several thousand people arriving at Cofton Park at the same time, there is inevitably a long queue for the toilet!

Please remember that all the marshals are volunteers and please do as they ask. This is particularly relevant in Cofton Park, and do expect to queue at the Longbridge end – there will be a lot of cars to park up!

If you have any questions, please ask.

Thanks, The Rover 800 Owners Club
