Marcel Krechting, events coordinator MX-5 Owners NL

Hi, sounds like you have a fun event organised, i have sent an email to the area AC with link to this page. Hope something is organised to meet.

Mal, Thanks for this. I will respond directly to Marcel and we can arrange to meet up with the group when they are in Northern Ireland.



I have just ‘fired off’ a quick email to Marcel and we will discuss the details at our planning meeting next week.
