The Nene runs its own winter and summer club series alongside welcoming regional and national rally cross and large scale meetings to its venue and has hosted dedicated sponsored meetings too.
In 2010 the club was awarded the 2010 BRCA Club of the year for its charity work and members dedication in rebuilding the club following its relocation.

Ahead of the Nene's annual AGM I have the pleasure to confirm that the Nene will not be increasing its annual membership so your 2014 NVR membership will cost you no more than it did in 2013, and 2012 and 2011 and 2010
Our 2014 membership pack is now available online and combines the 2013 NVR and BRCA membership form and the NVR's young persons form too.

Nene AGM, Due to club members racing at Coventry this weekend and the next round of the winter series being a busy Sunday as Scotties will be visiting to collect their cheque the Nene 2013 AGM will be during the lunch break of our next meeting on the 8th December. Most likely the Saturday at noon but if Covey is shooting then it will be noon on the Sunday between the heats and finals.
Having cancelled the 5th round of the 2012 series we have taken the time since the running of round 6 to establish the best option for running a 6th round.
Based upon the various calendars around it was felt that it would be best not to add in another race meeting but to make the 1st round of the summer series an event which scores points in both the summer and winter events.
With this in mind I wish to confirm that the event's calendar is up to date with all current NVR events and the MSC.
All our race meetings are shown on the clubs home page and by clicking the events hyperlink you can see all options to come and race\bash at the Nene.
