Princethorpe College, Rugby, Warwickshire, CV23 9PX

Friday 15th July to Sunday 17th July

(site of the 2013 National) 

As with previous years the main day is on the Sunday, with on-site camping available from Friday afternoon for those who wish to make a weekend of it. In addition to the great site itself, there is plenty to do in and around the area. The market town of Rugby, famous for being the spot Rugby Football was invented; The Royal Spa town of Leamington, with its Regency Architecture, Pump Room and Baths; The town of Kenilworth famous for its ruined Castle and Warwick, the County town, again with a fantastic Castle. Not forgetting the City of Coventry, which boasts a very impressive motor museum, the home of Lady Godiva and of course Coventry City Football Club and Wasps Rugby FC, all just a stone’s throw away from the site?

We wanted you to be one of the first to know about exciting changes to Footman James’ classic vehicle insurance. Footman James has conducted intensive research with customers and some of its strategic vehicle clubs in helping to design the cover available.
As part of the acquisition of Footman James by Towergate Insurance Group at the start of this year, Footman James has teamed up with insurance group Ageas to bring the products to life.

Ageas has the in-depth knowledge of our market and understands the passion that comes with owning a classic car – as well as the time and investment needed to restore and maintain a vehicle.


Budget 2014

There's good news for classic car owners in the 2014 budget. From April 2014, the classic car exemption from VED will begin rolling from 40 years, with cars built before January 1974 eligible for a zero-rated tax disc. Then, from January 2015, the formerly fixed cut-off, will become a rolling one. .

Citroen Dyane inner rear wing replacement panelsSPOG has been working very hard over a number of years to bring this project to life, and we are very happy to announce that the first batch of 100 pairs of Dyane inner rear wings is expected to be ready for shipping in October 2012.

These panels have been designed and manufactured from scratch, including commissioning all the design drawings and custom machine tooling required to manufacture them. SPOG has gone to great lengths to ensure that they are as good as (in fact, we believe better than, as they are of a thicker gauge steel) the original Citroën part, which is no longer available. They have been extensively quality tested, and are assured to fit perfectly.

This item is eagerly awaited both in the UK and abroad. They are available to order now, so don't delay!
NOTE: This price is only for the first batch - regrettably, subsequent production runs will cost more (this is down to our suppliers, not SPOG).



Getting insurance if you're under 25 is already enough of a headache, but recent reports of Footman James now refusing to take on such drivers on their classic car policies is affecting 2CVGB members. So what's up with that?! We find out...
