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 MG TFs 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!

Subscribe now! Please add your email address in the box at the right if you would like us to send you a regular email with details of our sports car club events. (Normally once a month).  Alternatively, send an email to David Jones at: info@reddragon.org.uk

Total membership is now 515 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.

Sunday 2nd November, 2014 - Helluvit meet at Drusilla's Inn, Horton

Meet at 12.00 hrs directly at the pub for a pub lunch(?).

The address:
Drusilla's Inn, Wigbeth.  Horton.  Dorset.  BH21 7JH.

Please call ahead to book a table if you would like to join us for lunch as this place gets pretty busy.  Telephone number: 01258 840297.

Hear more about the Monte Carlo trip
David will have a few more details about the planned trip to Monte Carlo in April 2015 - please come along to discuss the trip (we would like to hear about your preferred accommodation types and routes).  We already have 7 provisional participant cars for the trip.

It would be very helpful if you could contact the club to let us know if you are planning to join us.  Please send an email to David at: info@reddragon.org.uk or send a text to 07966578999.  Call this number on the day if you would like to meet up and can't find us for any reason.


The final Helluvit sports car club event in 2014 will be:

Sunday 7th December 2014 - Meet at Bournemouth Flying Club

Join us at our spiritual home(?!) for a coffee, some cake (or a late breakfast) in the flying club cafe.  The Flying Club is situated on the East side of Bournemouth Airport, with signage from Matchams Lane. The cafe has a great position overlooking the main runway and a taxiway.  Food is served most of the day and the club is open from 08.30 hrs until 18.00 hrs at weekends.  Please phone ahead if you would like to book a table. Tel: 01202 578558 or 651122.  Watch out for the single speed bump (which you can drive around) just before you reach the entrance to the Flying Club.  When leaving, be careful turning back onto Matchams Lane as the exit is unsighted.

The address of the Flying Club is:

Bournemouth Flying Club, Aviation Park East - off Matchams Lane, Bournemouth Airport, Christchurch. BH23 6NE.

Advance warning: Help us celebrate our 10th Birthday!
As 2015 will be the 10th Anniversary of the establishment of the Helluvit Sports Car Club, we are thinking of staging a few bigger events to celebrate.  Where did those 10 years go?!  One such is a road run to Monte Carlo and back ("Monte Carlo or Bust"), to arrive in time for participants to attend the Top Marques Monaco Luxury and Supercar Show at the Grimaldi Forum.  Dates are: Sunday 12th April, 2015 - Sunday 19th April (8 days, inclusive of travel).

Please let us have your initial expressions of interest.  (We have 4 cars already provisionally signed up for this run).  It is likely that we will limit the number of participants to 12 cars / 24 people for logistical reasons.  Details to be confirmed.  Please email David: info@reddragon.org.uk to register your interest.

Just for the Hell of it!

Visit our events pages for reviews and photos of our recent sports car road runs and meets.

Please keep an eye on the website and e-newsletters for more details of our events (and possible changes to the calendar).


Is it time to get the MX5 back on the road? 
Is it time to polish up the Porsche? 
Is it time to rag your Radical? 
Is it time to hoon along the south coast of England in your Honda NSX?
Fire up the Quattro?! 

Come and join us: we'd love to meet you! 

Please note that all of our sports car road runs, meets, tours, trackdays and other motoring events are dependent on the weather and the general driving conditions: please check with the organisers before setting out!  Please drive carefully!

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.
