Welcome to the website of the
Rover Car Club of South Australia Inc.
1977 – 2021
RCCSA Celebrating over 44 years of supporting one of ‘Britain’s Finest’ cars.
Wishing all the classic car community a happy Christmas, and safe and enjoyable motoring in 2022.
Formed in 1977, the Rover Car Club of South Australia celebrated its 40th Anniversary in 2017. Since its inception it has grown in member size and is a club that is highly regarded by its peers within Australia. Over its 40-year history it has been instrumental in launching some great events here in South Australia, the main one being in 1986 when its British Breakfast would ultimately become the now famous All British Day held each February.
The club members have a great array of vehicles manufactured by Rover from the 1920s through to the last of “Britain’s Finest”, the ‘75’ in 2004. The greatest number of Rovers in the club are the P5/P5B series with no less than 21 great examples. It is interesting to note that the P4 or “Auntie” model has grown to 12 fine examples. Of the post war Rover P3, which celebrates its 70th Anniversary in 2018, the club enjoys 15 of these fine vehicles in its fleet (0.2% of Rover’s production!). Not forgetting the Land Rover, which also celebrated its 70th Anniversary in 2018, the club having a good representation of these from over the years.
During each year the club hosts a great cross section of ‘fun runs’ and events for members along with guest presenters at its monthly general meetings. Our members are progressive, social and accepting of all new members who share the Rover passion.
Please enjoy our website which highlights not only our club and its activities through great stories and pictures but also “Britain’s Finest”, Rover vehicles. If you too share our interest and passion for these wonderfully, well engineered advanced in their time, British motor vehicles then why not contact us now as we are offering a great incentive to join our club.
