2024 marks the 75th anniversary of the Rover 75 (Cyclops) being unveiled to the public in September 1949. To celebrate this key milestone, the Rover P4 Drivers’ Guild held a special 75th Diamond Anniversary Weekend in May. We had a splendid road run in Derbyshire on Saturday the 11th May along with a gala dinner and entertainment during the evening at a stunning hotel. On Sunday the 12th May we held a special National Rally event at the Great British Car Journey museum. the whole weekend was a major success, befitting "One of Britain's fine cars".
