The MX-5 Car Club Christchurch is a very social and friendly club that enjoys monthly get togethers that can be either a relaxed meal out before our monthly meetings or a Sunday drive around the Canterbury region. The monthly runs range from a quick trip to a local coffee shop for coffee and cake, to a half day picnic run to enjoy one of our favourite scenic stops or parks. We throw in the odd mystery run or weekend away with an overnight stay from time to time as well.
If this sounds like you and you would like to join us for a few laughs, make new friends and enjoy the common interest of the worlds best sports car ever built, then contact us for more details (see below)
How it all began...
Mike and Sandra brought their first MX-5 (1990) in February 1996. On reading the press they saw a notice saying anyone interested in getting together with other MX-5 owners to ring Rod or Janette McKenzie to get details for a meeting.
A small group turned up at their farm on the Sunday at Motunau. After meeting and having refreshments and food they took a drive down to the beach and lined their cars up to get a photo. Rod and Jeanette made all really welcome at their home, so began the journey of the MX-5 Car Club.
Over the years there have been many members and all different years and colours of cars, some customized, some with turbos, some with V8's and also some lovely late models.
