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.

Chris's 'Barn Find' 93 (well more of a hedge find really).  How many is that now Chris? Don't ask how much he paid for it.  No really don't ask. Unless you've got half an hour to spare.

The Sonett starting up with clouds of smoke got everybody excited.  Especially Security after the backfire ;)

It's all about the Practical at this show.  Didn't like the sound it made when that came away.....

Saab 99 Group 1 Tuning Kit

 

GALLOWAY HILLS RALLY

As the final round, the Galloway Hills Rally was not a scoring round for us and my driver took the decision not to contest it, giving me a chance to dust off the 99 for another blast through the woods. Martin MacCabe, a Scottish Championship regular kindly agreed to read the notes. With a two car team bolstered by Grant Inglis in his lovely new MK2 Escort we made a good spectacle as the service barges towed us into the Rally HQ in the pretty town of Castle Douglas.

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).
