Figaro gets rave reviews  
On the Sunday of the 25th Birthday Celebrations we were visited by journalist Martin Saarinen from the weekly magazine Auto Express. Martin came along to write about the Figaro and try to learn more about the cars popularity by interviewing some of our Members. The publication was issued on the 29th June 2016 and we are delighted with the outcome. The editor stated "A day spent with the owners has left us considering how we'd go about buying one of these characterful little roadsters"

Adrian Flux 'Underwriter' goes bust! 
Anyone insured with Adrian Flux need to check who the underwriter is as Midias/Enterprise have gone bust so you may not be covered. Other brokers may also use them to underwrite? It will say on you policy docs. Classicline Insurance (our club insurers) have NO BUSINESS with either of these Companies. They are also saying any Figaro's insured with those underwriters won't be insured. Classicline Insurance have offered to give any affected members 'IMMEDIATE COVER' at generous terms Click here

ABOUT THE CLUB 

Our Mission Statement
"To provide comprehensive advice and information to both present and future owners (in addition to having lots of fun in the process) and to ensure these wonderful cars and their providence is preserved for the next generation of owners"

How the club started

My son 'Daniel' had always wanted a Figaro having seen the car at our local garage when he was just 16. After saving for a number of years (plus a small contribution from his mum and dad!) he brought an emerald green model in June 2008.

Following the purchase we searched on the internet for a club in the hope we could attend events with other owners but were amazed that no club existed... So the Figaro Owners Club was born!  We decided to build a website and forum which took 6 months and on the 1st March 2009 we pressed the 'publish button' and waited to see if anyone wanted to join? Within a week we had 10 members, a month 35 and a year 478 members.


Today the club has around 1,600 members worldwide in countries such as New Zealand, Japan, Australia, USA, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Sweden and many more countries...

Thanks to all our supporters and members for their help and encouragement throughout our journey.

Warmest Regards
