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.

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.
Where possible, there is usually an  SOC 'presence' at gatherings across the region organised by other clubs, motor museums or advertised on web forums (principally UKSaabs).

The dates known so far for 2020 at which we aim to be represented are:

  • 26th Apr           FBHVC 'Drive It Day' 2020  - various local runs (I'll be attending the one organised by the Highland Classic Motor Club, Inverness)
  • 9th May            Inverness Classic Vehicle Show - on the streets of Inverness with Parade finale led by pipe band
  • 10th May         Grampian Transport Museum, Alford, Aberdeenshire - "How Many Left" event for 'nearly classic' vehicles with fewer than 500 examples on the road
