14 Ebor Saab members set off on Friday 10 May to make their separate ways to the assembly point at Gretna Green for what was billed as a Scottish Mystery Weekend, the mystery being only the organisers knew the itinerary. The mystery began to unfold on Saturday morning with a drive along gloriously empty roads under blue skies up into rural Scotland to visit the Kagyu Samye Ling Tibetan Temple at Eskdalemuir (nobody expected a visit the foothills of the Himalayas).
It was a great show! This year we had a larger stand jointly run by the Saab Owners Club and UKSaabs. Didn't win the Award but there was some stiff competition.
That's almost saved you the entrance fee!
We were absolutely delighted that Saabfest 2018 at Prescott Hill Climb was shortlisted for ‘Outstanding Car Club Single Venue Event or Show’ at the National Car Club Awards. Sadly we did not win this time, but it was great to see the Club name up there
The awards took place at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show on Saturday 23rd March,

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
