2014 is a special year for MX-5 (or Eunos or Miata depending on where you are) owners such as myself. The car is 25 years old this year, and the MX-5 Owners Club here in the UK is 20 years old. So I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go to the Owners Club National Rally at the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon.
Around 2,000 MX-5s from the UK and beyond visited the event, which showcased the best MX-5s around in competitions of various categories. Parts suppliers such as MX5 Parts and AutoLink where there tempting owners to part with cash, and for those with lots of pennies Mazda UK were there too.
Visitors could also see the many cars on display at the Motor Centre, and watch the team from Mission Motorsport put some cars through their paces. Mission Motorsport is a charity which aims to aid in the recovery and rehabilitation of those affected by military operations by providing opportunities through Motorsport.
Of course I took my camera to capture some images from the day – the top ten photos are below.
