The day included a revised Edgehill Run starting and finishing at the Archive Centre in Banbury. This run was used to check the economy of Rootes Cars and originally started and finished at the Humber Road Plant in Coventry. Maybe you would like to check your car against its original performance figures?
There were also Rootes spares on sale. Anyone with un-wanted items could bring them along or simply come with a list of requirements for the traders who will be present. There were around 6 stalls with a large quantity of spares including Imp and Rapier.
Many of our visitors took the opportuity to take a look at the Archive and we received several offers of help.
