As if a global pandemic wasn’t bad enough , last year we also lost our campsite and our long-time venue – RAF Cosford.
Not letting minor issues such as no show ground and no campsite worry us, we’ve sourced a new home for the Scirocco Register National.
This year, we’ll be hosting the whole event at the campsite – Teds at Hunger Hill on Saturday 13th August 2022. It’s a big change, and something of a calculated risk, but we think that it’ll set the tone for the next few years.
We’re still working on the finer points, and we’ll keep you updated.
See you all in August.
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.
