Annual Rally 2018

Saturday/Sunday 4th and 5th August 2018

We hope we have arranged something just a little bit special for our Annual Rally 2018!

On Saturday 4th August we have booked facilities at Williams Grand Prix Engineering Ltd.’s Conference Centre at Grove in Oxfordshire.  We will have a tour of the Williams Grand Prix Collection, followed by dinner in the Trophy Room.


The collection spans the entire history of Williams, commencing with the inaugural Williams FW06 up to the present day. Displays include Alan Jones’ championship-winning car from 1980, the infamous FW08 six-wheeler, championship-winning cars from Damon Hill and Nigel Mansell, Jenson Button’s first car in the year 2000 and Juan Pablo Montoya’s winning car from the Monaco 2003 Grand Prix.

The Trophy Room houses an amazing and extensive collection of original trophies, driver helmets, team and factory photographs.

The cost of the tour and dinner, including coach transfer from the hotel is £105.00 per person. Places for the Tour and Dinner at Williams are still available.

The hotel is now confirmed as de Vere Waterpark Hotel, South Cerney GL7 5FP , as last year. ( The hotel has a small pool and spa facilities. The club has a block booking at £103.00 for a double room and £91.00 for a single; both rates include breakfast. To book your room call the hotel direct on 01285 864000 and quote "Club Marcos International". If you call out of office hours, (Mon- Fri- 8.00am – 7pm & Sat 9am-5.30pm), the call may be picked up by the Central Reservations Team and they will require the block code to book bedrooms at the agreed rate. The Block Code is: CLUB040818. Full prepayment is required at time of booking and is non-refundable and non-transferable. Please note that there may well be differing rates available online and that is at your own discretion, just please let the secretary know.

We are due at Williams at 18:00, so will leave the hotel by coach around 17:00 and the evening at Williams finishes at 22:00.

We still hope to hold the Concours judging on Saturday 4th August but will be guided by numbers confirming attendance. If you are not able to join us at Williams we'd still love to see you on Saturday and would much appreciate if you could confirm if you will be able to join us. You may wish to take advantage of the hotel facilities by staying the night.

Sunday is an optional day and if you don't mind an early start you can join some other Marcos owners at Beaulieu Supercar event. Alternatively, and a bit closer, is Prescott where Round 5 of the Vintage Sports Car Club (VSCC) Speed Championship takes place. Always a good atmosphere and some lovely old machinery both on the hill and on display.

Places for the Tour and Dinner at Williams are still available. To reserve your place(s) for this event we must receive payment in full at the time of booking. Numbers are limited to 60 and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Refunds beyond 31st December 2017 will not be possible.
