AREA CO-ORDINATOR

Gary Smith

“The Eastern Region” is the popular name for the Eastern Area of the MX-5 Owners Club, which covers an area stretching from North Essex to North West Norfolk, North Cambridgeshire to Suffolk. As well as a wide range of events, often held in conjunction with other Areas, the Eastern Region holds five monthly Meets where members get together to chat, tyre-kick, discuss & plan future events, and welcome new members. I look forward to meeting you at a future Eastern Region event or meet.
