DLOC - Daimler V8 Saloon

60th Anniversary Celebration

1962 – 2022


Friday 3rd June to Sunday 5th June 2022

A weekend event is scheduled to salute the Diamond Anniversary of the Daimler V8 Saloon, which first rolled off the production line in Autumn 1962. The opportunity for V8 Saloon owners to meet up and spend a weekend together, in order to celebrate this wonderful car's history seems only fitting. The aim of the event is not only to applaud and appreciate these lovely cars but for folk attending to have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.

In addition, the anniversary event coincides with the June 2022 Bank Holiday – perfect timing !!


The weekend base will be at the lovely refurbished Horwood House Hotel, Little Horwood, Milton Keynes, and a visit to the outstanding and hugely interesting Bletchley Park is scheduled for Saturday 4th June 2022.

The event is open to DLOC members AND non-members alike.

With grateful thanks, the Daimler V8 Saloon anniversary weekend celebration is being very generously sponsored by "J&E Engineering Services", with support from the Daimler & Lanchester Owners' Club

Event concludes.


Forty rooms at the hotel including breakfast have already been secured at a preferential rate, for the weekend, rather than the projected 2022 tariff.

The secured preferential rate expires on the 1st March 2022, after that the room prices will revert to the hotel’s standard tariff. Book now to avoid disappointment.

The weekend is pitched to celebrate the car; but equally important is that folk attending have a relaxed, informal and thoroughly enjoyable weekend – after all, that's what classic car motoring and ownership is all about !!
