Welcome to the Southern Rover Owners Club

Looking forward to next year.

Hi everyone

Sorry its been such a long time since the last chairman’s note to you all, but I am sure you can understand how busy we are at this time of year. Unfortunately the weather is back with a vengeance. Also the lack of members stepping forward to fill the empty spaces in the event staffing roster has also effected things going ahead smoothly (this is not pay and play).

The new proposed calendar is now drafted and ready for you to look over in the members area of the website. Any feedback is welcome, please use the contact information detailed in that section. I am sure you will have some good ideas and all are welcome for us to discuss. Also it is an ideal chance to to have a good look and see if there is a good time for you to do your bit and volunteer as a clerk as soon as it is finalised. If you are unsure about taking on a full clerk position don’t hesitate to ask any other more experienced members to help as an assistant clerk position is also there to learn the job.

See you soon

Latest News

Mike Rowe

It is with sadness we announce that early last week Mike Rowe passed away.

Mike was involved with SROC and off road trialling for 30+ years. He served on the SROC committee for 10 years up to 2016 during which time he liaised with the landowners and sorted out the permits we need to run events.

Mike mainly competed in RTV’s in his white 90, usually winning or at very least in the top 3.

Our thoughts are with Diana, Dave, Alison and their family at this time.

Day into Night Trial & Timed Trial SR’s

Here are the SR’s for the Day into Night Trial being held on 16th November and the Timed Trial being held on 17th November, both at Cow Farm.

The Day into Night trial is a new event for this year, a non league combined RTV & CCV trial that starts in the afternoon when you drive the sections (slightly different between the RTV & CCV), pause for tea whilst it gets dark, and then you drive them again in the dark. ALL COMPETITORS MUST PROVIDE THEIR OWN TORCHES AND WEAR HIGH VISIBILITY CLOTHING.

Elham RTV cancelled & CCV date moved.

Unfortunately as no-one has come forward to clerk this weekends RTV at Grove House Farm, Elham, we have had to take the disappointing decision to cancel the RTV on Sunday.
Also due to the site being used by another group last weekend the CCV clerks were unable to layout. So we have pushed the CCV to the Sunday to allow the clerks we do have to layout on Saturday. All pre entered competitors will be contacted today or tomorrow.

Deudneys Event Cancelled

Unfortunately we are having to cancel the event this weekend at Deudneys Farm, as after a visit today by the clerks they have found the field is waterlogged along with the woods. We also do not want to cause any unnecessary damage to the land and also competitors vehicles.

We hope you can all understand, the events secretary will be in touch to all that have pre entered the event.
