Club members are competing in, Historic Road Rallies, Historic Stage Rallies, Classic Runs, Sprints, Hillclimbs and many other forms of the sport.

For more information on the Club activities in Motorsport contact Richard Simpson

Who was Erik Carlsson?

Erik Carlsson



Many new members to the Club ask the same question -  “Who is Erik Carlsson?”  I suppose a lot of people who were not around in the 60s have never heard of him even though this giant of a man is often referred to as “Mr SAAB”.

Erik was born in 1929 in Trollhattan, Sweden, not far from the SAAB factory, but at that time the factory was only producing aircraft. Erik was 20 when production of the first SAAB cars started.  His first passion was motorbikes, he bought a Norton 500 new when he was 18 from Nystrom’s where he was working. Pelle Nystrom was the Norton importer for Sweden. At weekends he took part in hillclimbs, motorcross, road racing and, during the winter, ice track racing.


News from Jim Valentine (June 2016)

With the suspension of the Roger Albert Clark Rally the Saab Historic Rally Team has been somewhat in the doldrums, not helped by my taking a sabbatical to do the Peking to Paris Rally in June/July this year.
If you would like to follow Jonathan Lodge and me on the event see where there's already a load of material about our preparations and testing in Morocco.
So to give you all plenty of time to prepare I am suggesting we put together a team of Saabs to contest the Rally Isle of Man in September, 2017 under the Saab Historic Rally Team Banner
If we can get a feel for numbers I will see what we can do as a team entry with the organisers.  So please get in touch if you would be interested.  Plenty of time to get a car ready between now and then....
If the Roger Albert runs in November 2017 we'll look to get a team entry there as well.
All the best,

Jim Valentine

Ebor Saab Scottish Mystery Weekend May 2019

ebor saab scottish mystery weekend may 2019 1 20190529 190050204414 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).

North of Scotland

There is no formal Branch currently in operation (largely as a result of the sheer geographical spread of members across this area) and therefore no regular meetings.

  • 28th May   Vintage Day, Highland Folk Museum, Newtonmore
