Join the Helluvit Sports Car Club Today - Membership is free!

Club Helluvit members are an eclectic mix of petrolheads, car geeks and Sunday drivers, male and female: don't worry, you'll fit in!  We are based in Bournemouth, but we are active along the South Coast and wherever there's a great driver's road.  We organise sports car meets, road runs, our own mini sports car tours and we occasionally take part in track days and other motoring events.  Our current members drive everything from Ferraris to MGBs and from the latest Porsche to the oldest Alfa Romeo! 

The only entry qualification is that you drive a sports car, GT car or sports coupe!  (Sports bikers are also welcome).  We believe that Helluvit is the only all-marques sports car club in the area, although we would like to hear from you if you know different.  Find out how to join the club - here!

Just for the Hell of it!

Please send an email to David Jones at if you would like us to send you a regular email with details of our sports car club events. (Normally once a month).  We will then add you to our mailing list and keep you updated about forthcoming events.

Total membership is now 521 members.  Please invite your friends to join the club and come along on our monthly sports car road runs and join us for a chat at our sports car meets.

Join us this Sunday for this month's Sports Car Meet!

Sunday 24th April, 2016: Sports Car Meet at the Highcliffe Castle Tea Rooms

Join us at the Highcliffe Castle Tea Rooms this coming Sunday (24th April) at 10.00 hrs for our April meet.

About Highcliffe Castle
This magnificent Grade 1 Listed Cliff top mansion was built by Lord Stuart de Rothesay in the early 1830s. Derelict for over two decades, the Castle is now externally fully restored, however it has not been possible to do the same with the inside. The former staterooms have lost their elaborate panelling and
grand furnishings but now house the Heritage Centre you are visiting today. Within the rooms visitors can find information on the Castle’s intriguing history as well as an extensive programme of exhibitions.

We recommend that visits start in the Great Hall where there are information boards on the Castle’s history. Each room also has a black and white photograph taken by Country Life in 1942 showing what the room was like in its heyday, as well as a room information sheet.

2016 Admission Charges
Adults £3.50
Accompanied Children Under 16 FREE
Highcliffe Castle Season Ticket Holders FREE
Historic Houses Association Members FREE

You do not need to pay to access the Tea Rooms.  However, parking charges apply:
£1.30 for 1 hour.
£2.30 for 2 hours.
£3.80 for 3 hours.

Dogs are welcome in the grounds of Highcliffe Castle as long as they are kept on a lead at all times.  Unfortunately, dogs are not permitted inside the House, unless they are access-companions.

The Tea Rooms are open daily (except Christmas day) serving:
    Hot and cold lunches
    Dorset cream teas - a 'must have' for many visitors
    Locally made cakes and pastries
    Bagettes and paninis, with many choices
    Selection of "New Forest" ice creams
    Teas and coffees, including specialities

Unfortunately, they do not take bookings so we will need to take pot luck and grab a table or two when we get there!  At this time of year, it should not be a problem as they can comfortably seat 50 people inside and another 50 outside.

Phone number for the Tearooms: 01425 270924.

Please let us know if you will be joining us.  Contact David: or mobile phone: 07966578999.

Would you like to take part in - or sponsor - a future Helluvit event?

Remember, there's no charge to members for participation in our monthly road runs: just come along!  But if it's a picnic, remember to bring some food and a frisbee!  Or if it's a Road Run or Rally, bring enough money to buy yourself a coffee and a snack!  You can also sponsor each issue of our newsletter, which is sent out to all of our subscribers.  Contact David Jones for more information about sponsorship opportunities.
