Midland Rover Owners Club

Midland Rover Owners Club (MROC) is a club of Land Rover owners and enthusiasts in the West Midlands region of England, UK.

We're typically out and about monthly, competing via off-road RTV or CCV trials or socialising via camping & caravan meets, Pub meets or Green Laning.
Excluding Green Laning events, most of our Club activities are within an area 50 miles West & South of Birmingham.

See Our Club & FAQs for more info about the Club before deciding if Membership interests you.

In addition to this website we have a Facebook page for general chat etc. NB You MUST respond to the Joining questions before you get access.
