The National Rally is taking place this year at Ragley Hall in Alcester on Sunday 30th September and we are seriously excited. Last year our event at the British Motor Museum was the largest on record and this year is expected to be every bit as good! Click HERE for more info.

The final preparations are underway and we hope that you will join us. Members received their passes with the August edition of Soft Top Hardtop so there is no excuse not to join! If you want to join us but aren’t a member then tickets can be found HERE. Obviously the thrill of sharing a space with hundreds, if not thousands of MX-5s is plenty, but we’ve also got some familiar faces and some influential MX-5 characters coming to share in the festivities.

After his appearance last year we are delighted to welcome back Fuzz Townshend! Last year he was so generous with his time giving talks and helping with the judging and we couldn’t be more delighted that he will be returning this year for more of the same.

Rocketeer is a company making headlines for all of the right reasons, and they will be making headlines again at our National Rally. Bruce from Rocketeer will be on hand on the day giving talks and showing off the latest Rocketeer projects – if you’ve not seen one of their cars up close (or heard one!) then we recommend you make a bee line for the Jag-engined MX-5s! Bruce may also be joined by an Internet-famous MX-5 sharing a certain prince’s name…

In the technical domain, we are pleased to welcome back Roadster Robbie and Andrew from Autolink – if you have any MX-5 questions then be sure to ask them in the tent at the Rally!

Finally, we will also be welcoming Rick Weldon to the Rally! Rick is a long serving MX-5 patron. As if having close ties to the original MX-5 creators and racing for Mazda weren’t enough, Rick also runs the MX-5s at Laguna Seca. It’s about time we showed Rick how we do things on this side of the pond, and we couldn’t be more excited for him to join us!

We hope you’re suitably excited for the National Rally and can’t wait for you to join us! Of course, none of this would be possible without our fantastic sponsors, Meguiars, MX5parts, Moss and Adrian Flux so make sure you bring your pocket money on the day!
