Up Coming Events

Pea and Pie Night
Saturday 26th August at 6.30pm at the Cardones.
Pea and pies supplied and cost is $6.00. Please bring a desert or nibbles to share.
Don lives in a central metro location so its easy to get to.
We need numbers to know how many pies to buy. This is great fun night so don’t miss out. 
Please let Don know if you intend to come at the next meeting or if you cannot attend the next meeting then by email doncardone@adam.com.au.
Display Day;
Display day is on the 5th November at Wigley Reserve Glenelg. We have ordered a fine sunny day so please start getting your Spridgets and associated cars ready for fantastic display day.
This day is our yearly premier display event and costs the club a fair sum of money so we would like as many cars as possible to attend and make it a great success. 
The added bonus for attending is that your car can be inspected for club registration.
Please let Don know (doncardone@adam.com.au) if you intend displaying you car.

Reminder – general meeting, wine and cheese night

Just a quick reminder that we have a jammed packed meeting on Monday 3 July 2017, the including Wine and Cheese Night, Sporting Car Club of SA presentation on the Adelaide Motorsport Festival, Michelin tyres presentation and an update on the changes to conditional registration and what this may mean going forward to broadening the cars that can take advantage of this scheme.

Lets get a good turn up on Monday!

Wine and Cheese Night! (as well as a general meeting…)

Surely it won’t be this cold

Don’t forget our mid winter meeting next Monday 3 July 2017!


To try and encourage you to come out in the cold we always throw a bit of wine and cheese your way to make it worthwhile!

We’ll also have a couple of guests, one from the Sporting Car Club whetting our appetite for the upcoming Adelaide Motorsport Festival and the Michelin Man coming to the meeting to talk tyres.








Hope to see a great turnout for this meeting!
