The FRAZER NASH CAR CLUB, founded in 1933, became a Section of the Vintage Sports Car Club in 1948 and was re-formed in December 2005 as the Frazer Nash Car Club Limited (FNCC), an independent company, limited by guarantee.
Its purpose is to encourage the preservation of chain-driven Frazer Nash and GN cars, to maintain a register of all existing cars and to provide a means of interchange of technical information and spares.
There are five classes of membership:

JUNIOR - Under 25 years.
FAMILY - open to partners of members.
Only full members have voting rights and may hold office in the Club.
The annual subscription is currently £25 for Full and Associate members and £3 for Family members. Junior members pay only 50% of the current subscription and the entry fee is waived. There is an entry fee of £5 for everyone 25 and over. Overseas members pay a subscription of £32 to cover the extra cost of airmail postage. Sterling cheques payable to FNCC Ltd.
Subscriptions are due on 1st January each year but for those joining on or after October 1st, the subscription will cover the ensuing year.

Functions are held from time to time. Early in December, every year, we hold the Christmas Party. There is also a Summer Picnic. Every ten years there is a Raid to the South Tyrol; the next one will be in 2019. Other Raids are held annually either at home or overseas.
