Picture of the Month – September
GOC Chairman Brian Gent and Competition Secretary Chris Dennis on the conclusion of the weekend activities at the ‘Five Clubs Wiscombe Hill Climb’ event held over the weekend of 7th & 8th September.
To celebrate the club’s anniversary year and in recognition of the long association with this venue there was a Sunday parade of Gilbern cars that had competed at Wiscombe over the years.
The event was attended by many GOC club members and eleven Gilbern cars were parked in the upper paddock providing an impressive line up for all competitors on the completion of their runs up the hill.

About the Club
The Gilbern Owners Club was founded in 1969 by Martin Ingall, our President, when the cars were still in production. In November 1979, with the expansion of the Club’s activities, it was decided to incorporate the Club as a company limited by guarantee.
The Gilbern is a specialist car that attracts people who are interested in the vehicle they drive. Experience with other makes where the manufacturer has ceased production shows the importance of an owners’ club in the maintenance of the marque. Without this interest and support, the general condition of the cars may decline and spares may become harder to find, with a consequent potential drop in the value of the cars.
Our objective is to ensure the continued existence of Gilbern cars by encouraging interest and enthusiasm in the marque. We provide a range of technical services and organise activities and motoring events to bring together Gilbern Owners and enthusiasts.
One of the Club’s major objectives is to ensure that no shortage of parts occurs which would render a member’s car un-roadworthy or unusable. With the help of a wide range of suppliers, we have been very successful and most essential components are available.
A monthly magazine, Welsh Rarebit, together with this website are the main forms of communication with our members.
