Sadly we have some disappointing news, seemingly the NRMA has suddenly decided to remove its support from basically all classic car clubs and as a result we will no longer be able to use their training rooms at Strathfield for our meetings.
We are working hard to try and find a new location for the interim and for long term! We hope to have a solution soon. I is a shame that NRMA has decided to head in this direction, however their assistance over the years has been quite helpful and much appreciated.
If you would like more information please don’t hesitate to contact us immediately.
