Welcome to the MX5 Owners' Club Cornwall
Who are we?
We are the regional division of the UK number one MX5 Owners' Club which has been around for more than 16 years. Anyone who is a member of the national club can join our local troupe.
We cover all of Cornwall and West Devon, in fact anyone is welcome to our meetings and runs. The national site can be found by clicking on the following link.
What Do We Do?
The basic idea is to drive around country lanes in convoy, in the freezing cold, with the roof down! It is in fact more than that and although essentially a car club, we have many social activities to suit all ages and interests:
Usually this is on a Sunday and occurs twice per month in the summer and once per month in the winter. A typical run involves a convenient meeting place, a drive through picturesque countryside and lunch at a village pub (or sometimes packed lunch) using some kind of theme for the day.
We also attend, in the summer, most of the common car shows where we can show the club and our shiny cars to the general public. These include Mount Edgcumbe, Looe, Wheels of Wadebridge and Powderham Castle.
These include regular pub meets, one in the east and one in the west; barbecues, fish and chips and cream teas plus the annual Christmas party.
We also, from time to time, organise long weekends away, in a different part of the country. These include the annual Valentine's Weekend and we have, in the past, toured Brittany, The Brecon Beacons and the Wiltshire White Horses.
