Can anyone confirm if there will be the usual Sunbeam Spares Day held at the Memorial Park in Coventry and if so what date?

Thanks

Ok thanks for confirming back, I may well have a ride down, I've been once to the Rootes Archive Centre and found it fascinating.

The lure of possible spares and a look at some nice cars too is a bonus :)

Ok thanks for confirming both.

It's the same place I visited last September with a mate called Keith to drop some paperwork off.

Keith's father was a Former Rootes Director who helped set up the Australian CKD Plant in the 1950's.
