Owning a Figaro is all about sharing those special moments when you hook up with other owners. Be it a few owners meeting for a coffee or a larger event, the club is passionate about creating these special memories through our Chapters and club calendar.

Our events & rallies are famous for convoys, waving and having so much fun. Since our first adventure to Jersey in 2012 we have visited, France, Scotland, Belgium, Holland, Lake District, IOW and soon to be Yorkshire Dales! If you wish to attend an event go to the Events Page
