COVID-19 Update

The Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK and COVID-19


The latest advice from the Government still recommends that we stay at home as much as possible.  We should work at home if we can, but if we must go to work we should do so on foot, by bicycle or in our cars and avoid public transport where social distancing may not be possible.

We should limit our contact with other people and keep a distance of 2 metres apart where possible.

We should continue to wash our hands regularly, and we should NOT leave home if we or anyone in our household has symptoms.

The latest advice now permits non-essential travel in England, but not in Scotland and Wales.  We are now permitted to drive our cars for work, exercise and for shopping where retail outlets are permitted to be open.

Do not drive in groups or convoys.  The Government have stated that we must not meet more than one other person from outside our houseld and it is important that groups of cars do not gather together.

What Does This Mean For Our Club?


In these unprecedented times, the AROC Board has remained hard at work and has been monitoring the nationwide situation as well as adapting what your Club has to offer whilst under national lockdown.

Following much discussion, AROC has made the difficult decision to postpone National Alfa Day until 2021 to allow the organisers, our sponsors and members to plan accordingly.  National Alfa Day will return bigger and better than ever at Bicester Heritage next year.

In the meantime, should restrictions on socialising be lifted sufficiently by this Autumn, we will investigate options for one or two events this year depending on dates and availability. We will keep you updated on these and hope you wish to come and join us.  Additionally, we will be supporting as many of the third-party events as we are able around the country.

To help keep you occupied in the meantime, we have a number of additional online Club activities being organised. These currently include:-

  • Virtual Race Series with trophies and prizes  - more details HERE.
  • Photo Competition with unique prizes See page 60 of the April magazine
  • Alfa Romeo Driver Podcast Series  - more details HERE.
  • Zoom Section meetings Some Sections are hosting online virtual meetings, other to follow.

Please keep a look out as further announcements are made regarding events and the development of online plans.

We fully intend to maintain production, print and distribution of our flagship Alfa Romeo Driver magazine.

In the meantime, stay safe and we hope you can join in with our online activities.

For any further information please contact Club Manager, Nick Wright, or 0330 1330 558

Membership Magazine

Should I Still Join or Renew My Membership?

We are absolutely committed to ensuring our Members still receive as many benefits as possible during this pandemic.  Indeed, we believe that membership of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK can provide some light relief from the crisis we are all facing.

New members will not only receive the latest Alfa Romeo Driver magazine inside their Welcome Pack, but also an additional back issue of our magazine to give you something extra to read.

The whole team are committed to ensuring our Club continues to produce our Alfa Romeo Driver Magazine, and our Sections and Registers continue to engage with our Members online, via Skype and other mechanisms.  None of us have gone away or closed down nor are we seeking any form of assistance from the Government.

Since 1964 the Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK has been the biggest and the best Alfa Romeo Club and we will continue to be for many decades to come.

So  if you are thinking of joining or if you are already a Member and your renewal is due soon, please continue to support our Club so that we can support you and come out the other side even bigger and better than before!
