We’ve been monitoring things over the past couple of weeks and just wanted to update you all on where we stand with the Nationals and Covid-19.
Obviously, it’s a sh*tty time for everyone and we’re all adjusting to a new way of living and working. And we’re already seeing a vast majority of the big meets and festivals reschedule or cancel and as this goes on we’re getting closer to that point where we may need to do the same.
So here’s where we stand: Just at the moment, if we’re totally honest, we simply don’t know.
Yeah, we wish we could be a little more definite as well. But the harsh truth is that this is a scary, sh*tty thing and we’re all trying to get on with it.
What we’re hoping for is that people are sensible and this calms down in time but we’re not pinning our hopes on anything just yet and we’re not going to risk either ourselves or you guys.
Yeah, we’ve got a couple of ideas just in case, but we’re waiting to see what happens because, let’s face it, the National isn’t the biggest thing we all need to worry about.
On a more positive note……
Next year is our 25th Anniversary. We’ve already been talking to the oganisor of a major show and secured the display area and club stand and we’ve got a couple of (admittedly drunken) ideas up our sleeves.
Take care of yourselves, be safe, and stay the fuck at home.
Big love Sean, Will, Heath and Jim

Back in the day, a man took it upon himself to document everything scirocco.
Last year, we were approached at the National meet by one Dr Dub. He handed over the keys to his famous “Scirocco Storm” site and the associated information held within to us.
Long and short is the new home for the site is within the Scirocco Register website here: https://www.sciroccoregister.co.uk/dr-dubs-scirocco-storm-…/
In the coming weeks, the existing lineone site will be retired, so please feel free to use the site in its new home (and obviously shout if anything isn’t working).
The SR admin team
Well if you’re reading this then the new site has gone live (or you were just investigating that WordPress Blog button on the forum) and you’re wondering what the Hell is going on.
It’s fine young Padawan, we’ve just been cleaning house and tying up all the loose ends that have been flapping around for a while. The summer season is pretty much over and once again we’ve become bigger and better and now the focus is on expansion and eventual WORLD DOMINATION (caution: may be lies).
Over the past year or so the emphasis has been on extending our coverage and making the Register the primary Rocco club in the country and we reckon that’s been a success. An accidental offshot of this has been the international coverage we’ve received as well, we’ve always had good relations with the Dutch lads but the rapidly growing FB pages have attracted members from all over the world (Oz and Ecuador being the furthest we think) and we’re embracing it.
September sees the return of the very popular Calendar and this year we’ll be doing a separate International version and we’re already looking at doing some more shows on the continent which we’ll be announcing as soon as we get the details. The membership has been revamped and we’re rushing too get things out as soon as possible and, believe it or not, organisation for next year’s National is already underway.
But we can’t do any of this without you.
Tech tips, show reports and anything else are always gratefully received.
Hang on to your pants ladies and gents. It’s about to get fun
In here we will be talking about keeping your Scirocco alive. Scirocco 1 and 2 are becoming an endangered species as time, values and indifference threatens to consign these wonderful and underated cars to the scrapman of history. But fear not, you are here and as long as you remain so the cars will too. Scirocco Register needs YOU and others of like mind to own and love the cars. Keep standard and polish or modify like mad are two extremes we love and all points between, the key here is preservation in all forms.
I and guest authors will be spannering, hammering, painting, polishing and fettling in here, sharing what we know. Hopefully it will be useful or spark debate. Feedback and tapping into your knowledge would be great, we don’t know everything and had to learn somewhere. Contributions are welcome.
