What's On?


Events organised in association with the Micro Maniacs Club are headlined in blue and show the Club logo Micro Maniacs Logo in the left hand column.

All Micro Maniacs Club events are covered by our Public Liability Insurance.

Everyone attending Micro Maniacs Club events must abide by the Club rules and must register with the organiser upon arrival.

All vehicles driven at Micro Maniacs Club events must be fully road legal with valid insurance, road tax and if applicable MOT.

For one day driving events there is a nominal attendance charge of £1 per vehicle.  For week-end camping events in addition to site camping fees, there is a nominal attendance charge of £1 per event per camping unit for Micro Maniac Club members, £3 attendance charge per event per camping unit for non-members (this includes temporary membership of the Club for the duration of the event).  These charges help offset the insurance costs that the Club incurs when staging events.


Please ensure you contact the event organisers to check and confirm details.  Whilst we try to be as accurate as possible, sometimes events can get changed at short notice.

Please email Webmaster for your event to be included below.

We welcome other Clubs and organisations using and publishing our listing of events and ask that you reference the source in your publication.


With the current uncertainties and ever changing Government advice surrounding the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak, please check directly with event organisers to confirm that any event that you plan on attending is still taking place.
