WELCOME – ABOUT THE ROVER CAR CLUB OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA
The Rover Car Club of SA Inc. roots can be traced back to 1977 when an intrepid group of Roverites joined together through their common interest in the Rover marque, and in September that year the club was officially launched.
Within it’s inception it boasted 50 financial members. In 1986 the club hosted it’s first National Rover Rally, and at around the same time joined the Combined Car Club, ensuring its ‘own’ clubroom and facilities for meetings
As times have changed, the Rover Car Club has changed with them and can now boast over 110 members with more enthusiasts continuing to buy and enjoy Rover cars and the benefits membership that the Rover Car Club of South Australia has to offer.
The RCCSA is run by a group of enthusiastic volunteers who give their time to ensure that the management and organisation of of the club and events run smoothly.
