Hello and welcome to the South West Midlands Area of the MX-5 Owners' Club

Our monthly meetings are normally held from about 19:00 on the first Thursday of each month.  Most Members take the opportunity to dine at the venue before the business meeting at about 20:30.  Some even take to drink!

As well as monthly meetings we arrange regular drives and events.  As you will appreciate, the winter months do not lend themselves to open air driving, so January and December tend to get a miss.  There is usually a break for the main holiday month of August. Drives are normally held on the Sunday seventeen days following the monthly meeting.

Apart from the locally organised meetings and drives, Members can enjoy other events and national events.  The club's main site has more details of the national events.

South West Midlands is a highly active area of the MX-5 Owners Club. This is driven by the involvement and enthusiasm of the membership.

For 2024 joint Area Coordinators David Westwood & Gary Ridgway lead the team.

Experienced former AC Richard Nicol is also on hand with help and advice for all members.

Monthly drives are organised by individual club members with assistance from David and Gary.

We attend a large number of events and shows throughout the year, organised by Events Coordinator Heather Eldridge with input and ideas from club members.

Our website is managed by Gerard who also provides detailed route guidance for drives and events.

We are a friendly and inclusive group. If you are new to this area feel free to come along to our next meeting or drive – you will be assured of a warm welcome.
