The MX-5 Owners Club was formed in 1994 by three enthusiasts and in 1998 the
Club became a limited company.
Administration of the Club's activities is carried out by a National Committee
who are elected for a three-year term of office. They all give their time on a
The principal aim of the MX-5 Owners Club is to encourage the use and enjoyment
of the car through safe driving and an environment within which MX-5 owners and
enthusiasts can meet and benefit from the exchange of ideas and experiences.
Membership is not only open to all owners of MX-5s, Roadsters and Miatas, (its
name depending on which country the car was originally built for), but also to
enthusiasts of the car who have yet to acquire one.
The Club has around 5,000 members, making it one of the largest MX-5 Owners
Clubs in the world.
The MX-5 Owners Club is organised by Areas across the country. One of it's
greatest strengths is the network of Area Co-ordinators who organise local
meetings, runs, track days, social gatherings and other events. The Areas
publish a monthly newsletter for local members, and there are Area websites
that provide up-to-date information on forthcoming local, national and
international events and feature reports on past get-togethers. Click

The high quality Club magazine, Soft Top Hardtop (STHT), is published bi-monthly,
and features articles on a variety of topics, as well as information on major
MX-5 events both in the UK and elsewhere in the world. The magazine is well supported
by the major MX-5 aftermarket suppliers who regularly take advertising space.
The Club organises at least two major national events a year - the Spring Rally
usually held in April or May, and the National Rally held in late summer.
The location for the rallies changes each year so that all members have the
benefit of one being held at a location accessible to them. Venues have
included Harrowgate, Gaydon, Duxford, Edinburgh, Beaulieu, Weston Park,
Lulworth, Cardiff and Goodwood.
Attendance at these national events is between 300-700 cars, with members coming
from all over the country, as well as abroad, to participate.
For those members who are keen to enhance their driving skills and explore the
superb handling characteristics of the MX-5, there are numerous opportunities
each year to take part in Track days arranged by the Club at various circuits
throughout the UK. To learn more about these events
