Midland Centre members are usually involved in the club’s participation at the Classic Car shows locally at the NEC and Stoneleigh, and also organise the camping at the annual Silverstone weekend. You are welcome to join in, or at least come along and say hello and introduce yourself; we like to get to know our members and maintain the club’s reputation as “The Marque of Friendship”.
