Welcome to the ERA Club
The first ERA, R1, being wheeled out at Eastgate House, Bourne in 1934.
Peter Berthon can be seen to the right of R1’s rear wheel, with John Lea on the left.
The ERA Club was formed in 1936 by a group of enthusiasts who wished to support English Racing Automobiles Ltd. (ERA).
Until World War II the Club was very active and most of the contemporary ERA owners and drivers were Club members. After World War II the Club was not active again until the mid-1950s when a new generation of ERA drivers was establishing the cars as the leading marque in historic racing. Since then the Club has had a more or less continuous existence.
The Club now exists as a forum for owners, drivers and anyone who is interested in, and enthusiastic about, ERAs. Almost all of the current ERA owners are members of the Club.
The ERA Club's annual membership subscription is £18 for UK members and £25 for Overseas members. For methods of payment for subscriptions please see below.
An 80 page, full colour magazine, 'Hearsay', only available to ERA Club members, is produced annually.
