Seems such a long time ago… Northern Cobra Club visiting York Air Museum July 2018… Smiles all round and a taste of what we have to look forward to when we can all get together again

Northern Yorkshire dales Tour 2021


Organiser: –  Steve Hughes

Here is our Northern Region Profile

Our northern region’s Facebook group is made up of UKCRC members and non-members. They being, Cobra owners and Cobra enthusiasts; and we welcome anyone who is like-minded.

 Regular Club Meetups:

  • Date: Usually, the second Sunday of every month, but please check our Facebook page for confirmation
  • Time: 12:30pm
  • Venue: The Old Mill, Wakefield Rd, Brighouse. HD6 4HA.

Calendar of Events… Our calendar of events is our group Facebook section. And as there will be so much going on in our region and beyond, this is the best place to list them; then, everyone can see what’s on the books -and the list is always current.
Any member can organise a meetup or run-out by simply posting the ‘what-and-where’ on our FB page, or by creating a more formal event via our ‘Events’ section.
I also encourage collaboration with other regions and groups, and I similarly encourage posting and publishing what we do as a group or as an individual on our FB page and within our UKCRC publication and social media outlets… If it ain’t documented, it ain’t happened.

Below are some thoughts and ideas for this year’s northern region group activities. And whilst the below is just thumbnail and example stuff, it’s just the tip-of-the-iceberg of possibilities. Moreover, as our northern region is a very big place, it’s a given that some meetup places and events are just not within striking distance for everyone. So, with that in mind it is good to have a range of options across the whole region and beyond for us to be able to pick and choose.

 To set the scene, I suggest there are three categories of get-together/event types that could apply to everything we as a group or region could get involved in:

  1. National events: Note: Some events will be limited to UKCRC members only:
  • Malvern, Newark, Silverstone, NEC, etc. I’m talking about the big stuff here. And for these types of events, we could, when necessary, work with the UKCRC events coordinator
  1. County Events: Note: Some events might be limited to UKCRC members only:
  • These being the larger regional shows and events. And again, we could, when necessary, work with the UKCRC event coordinator and/or the relevant area rep and the lead activity member to get things done as a group or region
  • Wheels and Wings days at various aerodromes or transport museums
  • Chatsworth House Car Show
  • Doncaster Classic Car Show
  • Track Day’s
  1. Regional/Local Events: Note: Some events might be limited to UKCRC members only:

Here is some of what we’ve previously done, or what is pencilled in for this year:

  • John Sleath workshop visit (Doncaster) (date tbd)
  • Jasmine Porsche Dealer visit (and subsequent run out) Nelson, Lancashire (April)
  • Runs-out (i.e. a repeat of some of what we did in 2023):
    • Carding shed – Derwent Dam – Cannon Farm (Barnsley)
    • Pateley Bridge – Nidderdale area – Masham
    • Motorist Café (Sherburn in Elmet)
    • Blackpool Illuminations (Collaboration with the NWKCOG)

 Potential Regional Collaborative events/meetups (Examples):

  • Harewood House Car Club
  • Knights Cruisers Club (KCC) (Knaresborough area)
  • Chevin Motor Club (in Otley)
  • Manufactures Open Days
  • Motorist Café (Sherburn in Elmet)
  • The Carding Shed (Holmfirth)
  • MG Club yearly event (Pateley Bridge)
  • Harrogate Car Enthusiasts (Harrogate area)
  • Northwest Kit Car Owners Group (NWKCOG) (Various locations within our region and beyond)
  • Sports Cars in The Park (SCIP) events
  • Westfield Sports Car Club (WSCC). An example being a New Year fish-&-chip run to the east coast of Yorkshire
  • Leeds Cruise Club (J1 M621 – Beeston Interchange, the retail park)
  • Banger’s & Cash (Mathewson’s, Thornton-le-Dale)
  • NY500 Café (Pickering)
  • Yorkshire Modified Car Show (Malton, Sunday 16th June 2024)

 Some more specific trips/runs-out that have been suggested:

  • The lakes circular route from Ambleside Inc. Kirkstone Pass @1500ft
  • Runswick Bay via Lion Inn, Blakey Ridge
  • Sutton Bank via Terrington/Yorkshire Lavender Farm
  • Kettlewell/Buckden/ Langstrothdale. A very scenic valley and meander route in the Dales
  • Reeth, Arkengarthdale & Tan Hill Inn @ 1732ft. Britain’s highest pub
  • Rufforth – A circular run through villages
  • Pizza night at the New Inn, Tholthorpe
  • Lunch at the White Swan, Wighill
    Bottom line is, the more you look the more you’ll find… And with that in mind, you can find us on Facebook under “UK Cobra Replica Club Northern Region

Safe Driving.
