Reliant Motor Club

“The Club for Owners and Enthusiasts of Britain’s finest specialist car manufacturer”

No 1. June 2016

The Reliant Motor Club is launched

Welcome to the first newsletter of the Reliant Motor Club and thank you for joining the club.  Around 12 months ago Elvis Payne and Mark Cropper, both long term Reliant enthusiasts, first started to discuss the idea of a club for owners and enthusiasts of the Reliant Motor Company.

With so many people using the likes of Kindles and mobile devices to access material whilst commuting on public transport etc, it was decided that the RMC would embrace digital  technology and offer a   membership experience unlike anything that had gone before it. Due to the unique way the club is set up, members are able to access the most comprehensive archive material , including every copy of the Reliant Review and numerous Reliant brochures.  We will also look to be adding Reliant workshop manuals and hand books as the club developments.

In view of the fact we have web based administration, joining of the club could not be easier taking around 5 minutes to join and pay for your membership.  An inaugural meeting was held on the 20th April  2016 with Elvis, Mark and Ex Deputy MD of Reliant, Barrie Wills  and after some 6 months developing the IT platform, and arranging the bank account etc, the club was formerly launched on 6th June 2016 , within an hour of going live we had our first 10 members!
