We are lucky to have a large and active local membership with members coming from all ages and walks of life, the common factor being an enthusiasm for the MX-5.   We offer a rich variety of runs and events throughout the year, details of which can be found on our diary here on website.

We also have a local web-based Forum, where general banter and technical information is exchanged on a daily basis.  There is an enormous amount of advice, support and practical help available at a local level, all accessed through this Forum.

So, if you are a Northamptonshire resident and own, or are thinking of owning an MX-5, then please do visit our website, check out our Forum, or join us on a run or a meeting see the calendar below


REGULAR MEETS

Monthly meetings are held on the Third Monday of every month

Join us at the next meeting at
The Yeoman of England 
31 High St, Wootton,
Northampton
NN4 6LP

Members arrive from 6pm and in summer months we spend most of the evenings outside, admiring each others’ cars and discussing latest modifications.

Our monthly meetings are popular and well attended by 30 – 45 cars; these are informal meets, embracing members, non members and even non MX-5 owners!  We are particularly pleased to receive positive feedback from new visitors about the friendly and welcoming attitude that characterizes our group.
