The annual Silverstone Classic is always a highlight for the MX-5 Owners Club. Hundreds of members bring their MX-5s along to one of the world’s biggest historic race meetings for three days of automotive action, with prime parking and exclusive access. This year we celebrated both 25 years of the MX-5 Owners Club and 30 years of the Mazda MX-5 with a special parade lap of the full Grand Prix circuit on the Saturday evening, where hundreds of members got out on track for a few ‘gentle’ laps of the famous course.
The weather didn’t quite play to plan this year – 2019’s hottest day on the Thursday made setting up quite a challenge, and the warm, sticky weather lasted until Friday when the rains set in, and stayed for most of the weekend. But we didn’t let the weather put us off, and it was another great weekend with our MX-5 friends.
