Riley show cars to be celebrated in Wolston

| 15 Apr 2013

Hundreds of cars are expected to attend the Riley Register International Coventry Rally on 29-30 June.

This year’s theme will be the 1932 show cars, but a range of models will return to the marque’s home, covering the 1½-RMA, which was built from 1945-’52, through to later models such as the Elf I.

An extensive range of new parts from Riley Register Spares Ltd, which builds replacements from original drawings and in some cases improves on them, will join an autojumble and items from the club shop.

The Register’s Roger Wrapson said: “We have a club dinner on Saturday night, which will include a talk from an undisclosed mystery guest, and we will also be visiting parts of Coventry that are significant to the marque”.

Next year’s meet is already being organised and will pay tribute to Riley’s class win at Le Mans in 1934, with plans to make a special visit the site of the firm’s factory.
