In association with Nissan Motor GB, Nissan Europe and Nissan Japan the Founder Members of the GT-R Drivers Club (GTRDC) are delighted to formally announce a brand new Club for the GT-R and Skyline community.

Joining forces, and making its home with the longest running GT-R forum www.gtr.co.uk the GTRDC brings together the knowledge and experience of www.gtr.co.uk with a group of Founder Members with passion, breadth of ownership and ambition.

The Club's aims are to ensure that all drivers, enthusiasts and anyone passionate about the brands and cars are included. Regardless of membership of other clubs, organisations, social media groups or forums the GTRDC welcomes all to be involved as much, or as little, as they like.

The gtr.co.uk forum will be hosting a Membership area for club news, minutes of meetings, formal Club business and an open Events area so everyone can get involved and see the friendship and share the enjoyment in the cars we all love.

During 2018 the GTRDC will be working to formalise a fantastic calendar of events which will include Autosport this weekend, Silverstone Classic, Track Days (with a BTCC driver instructor), Carfest and some events in association with Nissan which will be revealed once we finalise plans. We are also hoping to be able to get up close and personal with some Nissan Motorsport events over the coming year.

Membership will be £25 per year but, for 2018, we are offering an 'Enthusiast Membership' at just £10. Full annual Membership will be available from the start of 2019 once everyone is aware what the GTRDC has to offer and on knowing our 2019 plans.

The Club has been formed to create a welcoming environment for everyone, whether dreaming of your first car or buying your next in the collection. We are a responsible Club and any abusive or anti-social behaviour will not be accepted or tolerated among Members or Founder Members. The goal is simply to create a fantastic experience where we enjoy the cars which brought us all together in the first place.

The Founding Members and Inaugural Officers of the GT-R Drivers Club are:

Shaun Lawless, Jack Roberts, Dylan Roberts, Pat Pomfret, Barry Pomfret, Roger Burgess Chairman, John Miskin, Toni Leadbeater Secretary, Ian Smith Treasurer, Dave Warrener Vice Chairman, Steve Riches, Adam Hill and Paul Kenney.

Honorary Members associated with Nissan and Nismo in the UK, Europe and Japan will be invited to be Honorary Members in recognition of their help in the founding of the Club and their enthusiasm for GT-R.

What will you get for membership? During 2018 and beyond the club intends to run a variety of exclusive events:
-Track days at Silverstone and other circuits
-European and UK Tours and a future trip to Japan
-UK Car Shows and Events
-Social Meets
-Exceptional, one off events ranging from access all areas Nurburgring 24 Hours and Blancpain to 24 Hours of Spa.

If you are interested in becoming an Event Manager for the GTRDC please contact us! An Event Manager will be the point of contact for all organisation for the event in question and will be asked to post pictures on social media, and, depending on the event, your entry to the event may be sponsored. :) Event Managers will also qualify for FREE membership!! (For the first year a refund will be given on completion of the event!)

Coming soon!
- we will be offering exclusive gt-r.co.uk email addresses free for use by members :)
- GTRDC memorabilia and clothing! When this is finalised we will invite you to visit our shop www.gtrdc.co.uk. Please feel free to sign up for an account in the meanwhile.

For additional information please contact [email protected]

If you are at Autosport at the weekend please come and visit us on Stand 9240!!

It's a free world, anyone can. ;)

We're just here for the cars, not the politics, that's all.

We have got some amazing events lined up this year, everyone is welcome to join in. That's all I am saying, we're very happy to work with other clubs and we are simply not interested in previous history. We are getting back to what it should be about - the cars.

Good luck with your new club!

I do have to question the ethics and motive of starting yet another club however!
Appreciate Neil thank you - hope you will get involved as be great to see your car at events!

As Toni said already it's a free world and I don't think we should bother getting dragged into anything which has gone before as pointless and a waste of energy. I hope all agree. The only driver (geddit) is to create an environment where people enjoy the cars and the community. Whether you are lusting after your first car or adding another to your collection it's for all enthusiasts.

Afraid that I will not be on any GTRDC stands Roger as It would be hypocritical of me to agree to support one club only to then let them down to support another!

You are allowed to be in more than one club you know, it really is a free country. :)

We will be having some exclusive events later in the year, so never say never! Or if you do, you may live to regret it LOL. Seriously chill, we're all here to enjoy the cars, that's all we want to do. We will be putting stuff on, everything else is up to you. ;)

Would never suggest letting anyone down Neil - that wouldn’t be right obviously.

There are going to be lots of events and am sure some might be of more interest to different groups of people and attended by different clubs - if not am sure we will all enjoy the GT-R family whichever stand anyone is on. Here’s to a great 2018.

So we now have gtr.co.uk, gtroc.org, B35 invitation only facebook group, and gtrdc.co.uk

Confuses me greatly. I'll go to whichever has the most user driven content on the forums.

Hopefully a bit more simple - GT-R Drivers Club home and Forum is here so one and the same with GTR.co.uk. The site is simply for info and there is a link to this Forum on every page at the top. It is only there to be the shop (so Mook and team don’t have to host ecommerce etc), Membership Database which we then share with Mook for your membership levels here and some info on the club.

All discussions, events and Forum is right here ;-)

Understood, in that case I live in hope that you will succeed in getting everyone back under one roof. I'm not privvy to what happened with gtroc.org and am completely uninterested in a stand alone private facebook group (one of the great things about an online forum is the open historical knowledge it contains) and thought it to be bonkers that such a small group of people should be spread across 3 online resources.

If you can improve gtr.co.uk's offering that would be a positive.

Could be fun - even for a sideline enthusiast...!



David

Just saw it hit thank you and welcome!

I will be assigning Membership numbers to those who have joined already tomorrow and sending to Mook who is kindly doing the membership statuses. I will then drop you a mail with number.

Can't commit to being an event manager due to commitments but I am up for this and think this is a great idea.

Toni - you mention stand at Autosport, I am going to Performance Car Show - will GTRDC be there?


Thanks!
