Some basic stuff...

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

Our monthly meetings are normally held from about 19:30 on the first Thursday of each month.  Most Members take the opportunity to dine at the venue.  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 www.mx5oc.co.uk has more details of the national and other region events.

Other Events

Planning for events we can attend in 2024 is underway, details will be updated below when available.

Friday 23rd Aug - Sunday 25th Aug 2024:     Silverstone Classic

We are pleased to announce the MX-5 Owners Club has been selected to exhibit at the 2024 Silverstone Festival and that members will be able to display their cars on an infield pitch with our Club display package.

The Festival goes ahead on the August Bank Holiday (23-25th August 2024) with thousands of classic cars on display, golden era motor racing and epic on-track showdowns across three jam packed days, rounded off with live music every night, the Festival is probably the best and most accessible Classic car event on Calendar.

The fantastic infield display package (two adult admission tickets and one infield car display pass) your Club membership brings huge saving on all weekend tickets.

**Club package prices - are now available.
Details and Club Member discount code can be obtained by logging in to the MX5OC site here:
[Members discount code, you need to be logged on to the MX5OC forum]

Tickets are now available here:

Infield places are limited and we do urge members to book early for the best prices and secured infield space at this fantastic event, look out for announcements soon.

As it is a special year in 2024, we’ve also applied for an anniversary parade but, we won’t know of the outcome of this yet, and it is unlikely to be announced until into the New Year.
