SOLENT AREA - 2022 Programme

Hi Everyone,

Please see below the draft 2022 Programme which got its first airing, at Yesterdays Christmas Meal and after a few tweaks, here it is for you to peruse and put dates in your calendar.

We will update this post with any new information, as and when it becomes available.

Lets hope the UK Governments Booster Jab Campaign gathers pace, as they say it will and this programme won’t get decimated as per the past two years :crossed_fingers:

Mal’s tip of the day: As before, hover your mouse over the pogramme image and you will see an option to open in a readable format. Click once and follow the on-screen instruction to download as desired.

Best Regards

The Solent Team


Hi Everyone,

Serena and I went to IKEA today and whilst in area, we called in on Darren & Russell at “The Wheel Alignment Specialist” and agreed on the date of 16th October for the Solent Area Technical Session with them. This date is now in the Solent Area Programme :slightly_smiling_face:

So, if you want ot get your MX5 driving straight & true, put this date in your calendar and we will post final details nearer the time.

Hi Everyone,

We are currently in discussion with The Redshoot Inn, in The New Forest, ref finishing a drive there on Sunday 3rd April and hope to post more details on this very soon.

However, the Wednesday Drive on the 20th April, our first evening drive after the clocks go forward, is currently blank :worried:

Please could we ask, if anyone has an idea(s) for a drive on Sunday 20th April that we could all do, it would be greatly appreciated, so we do a drive that others wish to do and not just what Terry and I think members would like to do.

Please contact us on: if you have any ideas and we will help you make it happen :+1:

Best Regards

Mal & Terry

Hi. Just wanted to introduce myself. I’ve just agreed to buy my first mx5…after much procrastination! I’m looking forward to joining in with events and meets. Unfortunately I’m also a complete Luddite and baffled by tec. I’ll try but what’s the simplest way to keep up? I’d love to do the Shaftesbury drive for example and just need to know where to meet. Anyway. Hopefully see you soon :wink:

Thanks. I think I’ve got the rownhams services meeting etc😉. Collect my car tomorrow and will be going cross country from Basingstoke to goodwood then on to my old home town of Lewes. I’ve so missed fun on Sussex roads! See you soon. Guy
