Welcome to the Wiltshire (Moonraker) Noggin

I will be the first to acknowledge that not all Scimitar Owners and drivers, be it of a Sabre, Coupé, GTE, GTC, Small Sports or Middlebridge GTE, will want to go along to monthly Noggin meetings.

However, through the Noggin we have far more to offer than just a monthly get together. A lot of RSSOC members do their own vehicle maintenance, repairs and refurbishments, so the Noggin is a great place to tap into the technical knowledge and the know-how of those in our area and all advice is freely given.

One event we always endeavour to support is the National Classics Drive It Day that effectively opens the Season in mid-April.

In 2019 and 2021 we were invited to show some of our cars at the RAF Brize Norton Families Day at the end of August, which was a memorable day and we have been invited back for the 2022 event.

There are several other shows in other Noggin areas supported by members of our Noggin, namely Popham Wings and Wheels in May and the Classics and Supercars at Sherborne Castle in July.
