Club. Only the Czech Wartburg Club is known to be older.

Two years ago the club could celebrate its 40th anniversary but that’s not all, 48
years ago the first Wartburg 311 was imported into the UK and
22 years ago the ‘iron curtain’ fell.

has a lot to offer. Not only organizes the club regular events
all over the country they are also there to support their members with technical
problems, local events, car insurance and legal questions from importing a vehicle
