A full pint would be good.

I'd consider a flat cap as long as it was obviously a RBRR item.

Maybe 'Round Britain Reliability Run 1966 - 2016' sun strips for the cars? Maybe little plaques for the cars too etc?

RBRR Beer? 'Petrol, mineral and tears' or something. I'm sure a catchy name could be thought of. I'd suggest maybe some of the Coventry breweries should get a go at it being as the cars are from Coventry originally... https://www.byattsbrewery.co.uk/

Please can we have decent embroidered merchandise this time even if it costs a bit more.

Quilted body warmer which are nicer to drive in than full jackets.

Flat cap's a grand idea, don't bother with those bl**dy baseball caps that everyone wears.

I like the sunstrip idea - the CLUB TRIUMPH one could be made a little more specific for the 2016 RBRR.

A necktie would be good as well, with reference to the 2016 RBRR

Not more sun visor strips please, it's hard enough to get members to display the current ones!

Will entrants get first dibs on this stuff? Same with the RBRR book too - I'd love to have one to add to my collection when they're published and would hate to miss out. Maybe include a list of teams from the first RBRR and the 50th anniversary of it too, even if it's just a list of names, the car they use and their location? That way the book will be personal to all the people that take part.

I liked the 2012 T shirt with the motorway destination/ mileage  sign on the back, perhaps do a 60's style sign.
could they put a list of all the cars, model, reg ,colour etc that have done the RBRR  in the book, it would be interesting to know how many still survive.

Agreed - I liked the 2012 t-shirt (the only one I have actually) and really liked it.

Quoted from Wilfrid
Not more sun visor strips please, it's hard enough to get members to display the current ones!


What about a sunstrip type thing 18" wide and 2 - 3 inches deep, and use blue with yellow letters?  
Can be used on the front usefully covering the gap between the visors, or on the back window bottom or top.

I like to show my allegiance to CT but find the present ones a bit much - reminiscent of the 'Kevin and Sharon' things that were popular in the 1980s and I hated .......
