    Wessex region Dorset, Hants

    Just wondering how many people there are out here within the Bournemouth area or 20-30 miles of it who own Cobras that are active members? There used to be quite a few about 15 years ago when I was last active. What happened?

    Looking to get some meets going and possibly outings. I will be taking the old girl to Le Mans next year, (2020). Would be nice to get some interest in this. I'll be booking early as the best camping places always go quickly.

    But days out or the odd weekend?
    Who else is out there?

    Regards,

    David

    I usually try and make Wilton House in the summer months ( Wilton Wake Up ) and Haynes motor museum hold a event on the first Sunday of the month.

    I clocked that one earlier. If weather allows I will try to make it as I have no roof as yet.

    Hi David, have you joined the official UK Cobra Replica Club?
    ukcobraclub.co.uk
    In the excellent magazines you'll find the details of your local rep / organiser.
    Worth just for the insurance discount which will cover your membership.

    Yes I have joined and the area rep position is vacant. That’s one of the reasons for this thread. To see who is out there before I put myself forward for the position.
    I used to be a member years ago when I was building the my car. But now I’m back in it and the club......

    Hi David,
    if you fancied taking it on, it would give you free membership of the club.
    I could help put you in touch with members in you area.

    Hi David. I live a bit further than 30, more like 50 but would be interested. I live in Warminster, had a nice sunny drive down to Wareham for lunch and along the coast over the Lulworth ranges last Sunday. Where I live tends to be on the edge of most things from TV areas to Clubs...
    regards

    Hi Geoff.

    I was out over the Purbecks a couple of weeks ago. Stopped at the Square and Compass then on to Swanage where we gained a bit of interest with the car.
    I'm up for meeting if you are down this way again. Have a friend who may join us if I can get to fixing his Cobra sometime soon.

    David.

    Hi David.
    Sounds like a nearly plan to me, my car is minus its complete inside at the moment as I am renewing the carpets and having dash, seats etc reupholstered but should be mobile mid April.

    Hi David,

    I'm in Alton, Hampshire. Very active and passionate car driver - perhaps too busy, but would be great to have a local meeting.

    Cheers, Jon
