Welcome to Super Seven Club Netherlands
The Super Seven Club Netherlands (SSCN) is a club of about 200 enthusiastic owners of a Lotus (Super) Seven, Caterham or Seven(-ish) derivative. The club was founded in 1984, so 2019 marked our 7th lustrum.
The SSCN is an active club with a variety of activities throughout the year. We will typically get together for around 15 or more meetings (most of which are tours) in the season. After our annual meeting in January traditionally the first stop will be our ‘greasy hands days’ at various locations across the country. Good fun to getting the cars ready for a new season together with friends and handy mechanics! Throughout the year we meet locally at friendly garages for what we call “Sevens & Coffee”. Every once in a while, at our Sevens & Coffee you will find members of ‘rivalling’ clubs such as the Kit Car Club, the Lotus Club Holland or the Donkervoort Touring Club. After all we share the same passion!
This illustration shows the distribution of the different types of Sevens at our club.
The last couple of years the number of Donkervoorts has been on the rise. Perhaps this is due to the strict regulations around homebuilt cars in the Netherlands, or it could be that the number of Donkervoorts in circulation continues to increase…
Each year several of our members make themselves and their cars available for charity drives such as the ‘cheer up days’, what better way than to use your Seven to put a smile on someone’s face!
Although the level of track activities has slowed down, some members will always find an opportunity to race their Seven either on a circuit or a hill climb (yes, there are one or two hills in the NL’s and even more in Belgium). About once a year around 30 cars will travel abroad for a week or so to explore even bigger hills and more winding roads.
Reports of our meetings and adventures as well as interesting articles and tidbits about Sevens can be found in our unsurpassed club magazine ‘Superb’ as well as our recently completely updated website. One of the action items remaining is to make our site available in English now that we have joined the International Seven Network.
We look forward to the opportunity to getting to know many of you better through the International Network. So, whenever you plan a trip to the Netherlands with your Seven, please do not hesitate to contact us (info@Sevenclub.nl). We would love to meet you, show you the by-roads, do a short blat or just have a drink!
Our current Website has only this page in Englisch language, but recommend to explore our “De Auto’s” page which containts information on all type of Seven(-ish) cars we obtain information from in the past years. If you have information on other Seven(ish) models feel free to share ( firstname.lastname@example.org) and we can expand our collection on the site.
Best regards on behalf of all SSCN members,
The board SSCN
