What we do
Day Drives are the bread & butter of our Club. Runs are organised with starting points in Sydney, Canberra, Hunter, Illawarra, Blue Mountains and Mid North Coast, and are usually on either a Saturday or Sunday. Mid-week runs are also organised for those who are busy on the weekends. It's great to see a group of MX-5s snaking in convoy throughout NSW and ACT on winding MX-5-friendly country roads. The runs end with breakfast, lunch or dinner at the destination of choice, some convivial discussion, and then an independent return home.
Coffee and Lies get togethers occur at various venues on weekend mornings every month. They are another great way to meet friends, talk MX-5s and even go for an impromptu run together.
Midweek social nights are held in many locations where members can meet for dinner and get to know each other in the absence of their cars. Whether it be a schnitzel & beer at a club, fish & chips on a beach, or a friendly trivia night, we've got just the thing to keep you entertained.
Weekends Away are organised regularly, particularly on the long weekends. They are a great way to consolidate friendships over dinner and a bottle of wine!
Social Events include the annual President’s Picnic, Convenor's BBQs, Christmas in July and Christmas Parties – and many of these events are subsidised by the Club.
Tech Talks on various subjects are arranged at various venues, with expert speakers to answer all your questions.
Motorsport Programs include Club track days, supersprints, regularities, hillclimbs, driver training, motorkhana and the MX-5 Cup race series. We cater for all levels from beginner to advanced, and they’re a great way to learn car control. Trophies for the Club Motorsport Championship are awarded at a special presentation night which is subsidised by the Club.
Concours d'Elegance is an annual competition for the members who take pride in the appearance of their car. This includes a Show & Shine, where members are encouraged to show off their best performance and decorative modifications, and the President's Picnic, which includes a fully subsidised lunch. Who said there is no such thing as a free lunch?
Committee Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month to discuss the Club's direction and progress, and to plan the Club's forthcoming program of events.
Annual General Meetings provide all members with an input into the election of the committee members and opportunity to contribute and to participate in the administration of the club's affairs in an open forum. Members who have achieved the milestones of 5, 10, 15, 20 and 25 years of continuous membership are recognised at the AGM with a Tenure Award badge.
NatMeet is a national meeting of all the Mazda MX-5 Clubs in Australia and is held every two years in a different state. This is a huge event not to be missed!
Club Torque is our full colour glossy magazine updating members on the Club activities during the previous few months as well as providing other articles of interest to MX-5 owners.
Club News is a weekly email newsletter advising of the upcoming events and activities.
Facebook provides our members with a fun way to share their enjoyment of their MX-5s. The Club has an official Facebook Page, while most of the Chapters have their own Facebook Groups - check out the Sydney, Canberra, Hunter, Illawarra, RPM and Mid North Coast Groups.
Buy & Sell is a section of classified ads for MX-5s and parts/accessories. Posting of classifieds is available free to all members of the MX-5 Club of NSW. Non-members may also post ads for a small fee.
Member Discounts are offered on a variety of goods and services by a wide range of vendors in our Business Directory.
