We all pay the same membership, and we all get every benefit. There are no gimmicks with the Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK, just a fabulous Club of loyal enthusiasts who love Alfa Romeo.
The Biggest and Best Alfa Romeo Events
For decades, the Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK has organised and run the biggest events across the UK for owners and enthusiasts of Alfa Romeo.
From Spring Alfa Day to National Alfa Day, Scottish Italian Car Day to South West Alfa Day, Southern Alfa Day and Midlands Italian Car Day (MITCAR), our Club organises them all.
Of course, we also have stands at virtually every other Italian car shows and many motoring events throughout the year, including those organised by our friends at Auto Italia Magazine, Festival Italia in the Summer at Brands Hatch and of course the NEC Classic Motor Show in November.
National Alfa Day is by far our biggest event and is supported by Alfa Romeo UK and is packed with approaching 1,000 Alfa Romeos and typically over 1,500 guests. It is a sight to behold and the must-attend event each year.
Members receive discounts to our big events along with other exclusive offers throughout the show season.
Alfa Romeo Driver Magazine
Our flagship full-colour, 80+ page Alfa Romeo Driver magazine is published bi-monthly in February, April, June, August, October and December.
It is packed with the latest updates from the Club HQ and our local Sections and Model Registers and always has interesting articles covering everything from Alfa Romeo history, owners’ cars, trips, buyers guides, road-tests, detailing and technical updates from our workshops along with classified ads and other topics.
And of course our relationship with FCA and Alfa Romeo UK also features, as it does at our events. We have direct access to the Alfa Romeo press fleet, and we now have access to new models at the same time as other leading motoring magazines and TV shows.
We really encourage our members to contribute to our magazine – the overwhelming majority of content is directly from our members featuring their own cars and their own experiences. This makes Alfa Romeo Driver a very personal insight into our members and their Alfa Romeos.
As a member, every copy of your Alfa Romeo Driver magazine will be delivered to your door, and you will also be able to publish your classified adverts on both our website and in our magazine… for free.
Access to Local Alfa Romeo Sections
Our club is very social, and we recognise that people live in all corners of the UK so cannot attend every national event we run.
So our Club is organised into 31 geographic Sections around the UK. Each is run by a regional organiser and supported by a team of enthusiastic volunteers, and every year our Sections typically run over 300 local events and gatherings just for Club members.
On top of this, many of our Sections run regular online meetings, quizzes and presentations which are available to all our Members.
There is nothing else like it for Alfa Romeo owners.
So whether you live in Scotland, Cornwall, Kent or Lancashire, we will have a Section near you with friendly Alfa enthusiasts who organise local meetings, pub gatherings, drive-outs and events close to where you live.
Access to Model Registers
Alongside our Sections, the Club also supports a wide range of model specific registers
Each run by Registrars with in-depth knowledge and support from the Club for everything you need to run, maintain, modify and fix your specific Alfa Romeo.
We see our Model Registers as a critical way that our members gain support, knowledge and assistance with technical queries, general information and, as newer Alfa Romeo owners will know, the in-car technology used in our cars.
So whether you have a cherished vintage Alfa Romeo, a 105 Series, a Montreal, Sud, or a modern Alfa up to the latest 4C, Stelvio and Giulia, the Alfa Romeo Owners Club has an enthusiastic Model Register to support you, and virtually all of them have a Facebook group too.
And our Model Registers always try to park together at our big events, so you’ll meet other like-minded owners in person.

AROC Insurance with Chris Knott
For decades, the Alfa Romeo Owners Club has had a hugely beneficial partnership with Chris Knott Insurance.
A truly independent insurance broker where our needs are put first and where we all receive the ongoing support, advice and friendship we need.
Chris Knott’s insurer partners give them the authority to quote what they need to (within limits) to sign-up the Club’s members.
In fact, currently members save an average of 23% against their existing renewal quote by using AROC Car Insurance.
Switch to AROC Car Insurance and you’ll benefit from traditional personal service where you’ll always be able to speak to a qualified insurance professional right here in the UK – we don’t use call centres.
And not only that, with fabulous Breakdown cover, Gap insurance and discounts on home and travel insurance, Chris Knott can support our members with all their insurance needs under one roof.
Bi-monthly e-newsletter, Notiziario
Alongside our Alfa Romeo Driver magazine we publish a bi-monthly e-newsletter, Notiziario, in January, March, May, July, September and November.
All Club members receive Notiziario delivered straight to their email inbox.
All our members get something interesting and informative to read every month, with our Alfa Romeo Driver magazine dropping through the letter box six times every year and our e-newsletter, Notiziario, arriving in their email inbox on alternative months.
Notiziario (English translation: News Bulletin) allows the Club to share more video and photo content as well as up-to-date event information and Club benefits to our members.
Most editions of Notiziario include:
- Details of recent and future events
- Updates from local Sections and Registers
- Member profiles with information about their cars
- Detailing suggestions for our Alfas
- Information on new or upcoming diecast and model Alfa Romeos
- Kids section with activities for your children or grandchildren
Motorsport and Trackdays
Our Club has a very long history of Motorsport, and members can participate in motorsport events, track-days, sprints and hill-climbs which are arranged by our Motorsport team.
We often run professional trackdays at major circuits around the UK in partnership with other trackday companies and Alfa Romeo dealers.
In addition, the Alfa Romeo Owners Club are partners with the Alfa Romeo Championship Association (part of the 750 Motor Club) and support their activities around the UK for FIA regulated circuit racing in all types of Alfa Romeo, old and new.
Alfa Romeo Driver Podcasts
Join our Alfa Romeo Driver magazine Editor Guy Swarbrick in our Podcast series as he meets figures from the Alfa Romeo Owners Club and the wider Alfa Romeo community and talks openly on topics for the listening pleasure of our members.
Guy’s interviewing technique ensures you hear the real opinions and honest views of the participants, which are therefore not necessarily the views of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK.
As each new Podcast is recorded, it will be simultaneously posted on our website, on our Youtube channel, on iTunes, Google, Spotify and our preferred platform Podbean automatically.
So choose your favourite platform for listening on your preferred device, get a tea or coffee and settle down for some great Alfa Romeo content.
Virtual Racing Championship
The Alfa Romeo Owners Club, in collaboration with the Alfa Romeo Championship, have setup several Virtual Racing Championships using Assetto Corsa for online gaming excitement. And we have dedicated servers just for us.
There is always a Championship in progress for AROC Members and ARCA Registered Drivers, whether in touring cars or open-top racers. And we race all around the virtual world at some of the best and most exciting tracks from today and from the past!
The Championships are on Windows PC using Steam, and we always welcome novices and new joiners to the Championships. It really is a lot of fun!
We have a full calendar of races and when the calendar shows no races, there is a looping on-track session so you can be online and racing an Alfa at any time of day or night!
Valuations, DVLA Liaison and Factory Information
Our Club is uniquely placed in the UK to offer valuable services to our members with historic and rare Alfa Romeos.
We have a well established relationship Museo Storico Alfa Romeo and know the archivists and Curators as friends, which can frequently help our ability to unearth long-lost information or details about cars.

Member-only Alfa Romeo Parts Service
The AROC Parts Service is just for members of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club.
Our purpose is to support our members to maintain or restore their cars and keep their Alfa Romeos on the road. Our aim is to continually and carefully source and curate original OEM, new-old-stock Alfa Romeo parts and maintain them for the day our members need them.
We are not simply buying parts and reselling for the sake of it. There are several companies in the UK who are partners of the Club who are parts suppliers to the Alfa Romeo community.
We are curating parts for the decades to come to provide a service to members and help them find a part for their Alfa Romeo, whether it’s next month or in five years – we will be here to help.
When you join the Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK, you will receive a welcome pack including your unique membership card and the most recent copy of Alfa Romeo Driver, our Club Magazine.
You will also receive a windscreen sticker to proudly show your membership, and every year you will receive another sticker inside your February magazine to show your length of membership.
Every member gets access to our online forums and our unique discount and partnership codes along with full access to our Club Archive.
You will also be introduced to your local Area Section who can, if you want, introduce you to other members of our Alfa Romeo family in your local area. They will also invite you to local events and keep you abreast of everything that is happening locally.
Price of Membership
Our standard annual membership is just £42.50 per year
Membership can be in your name or for yourself and your partner as one family membership for the same price – we are an Alfa Romeo family after all.
That annual price reduces to just £40.00 per year if you renew annually with direct debit.
We offer £10 off for concessionary membership for under-25s and in line with statutory retirement age, but you’ll still get all the same benefits.
When you first join, there is a one-off £7.50 joining fee but this only applies on your initial application – you’ll never have to pay that again.
We don’t offer different tiers of membership or any form of ‘free’ membership disguised to get you to upgrade.
We firmly believe all members should receive all the benefits of being a member of the Alfa Romeo Owners Club UK.
Every one of us is, after all, an Alfa Romeo enthusiast and we all deserve the best there is.
