Central Area

The Central Area meets at the Buchanan Arms, Drymen on the first Thursday of the month at 7.30 pm.

The Central SRE Area comprises the Stirling and neighbouring counties of Dunbartonshire, Argyll and the southwest fringe of Perthshire. The membership is an essentially rural contingent based around Stirling with a scattering of representatives/enthusiasts throughout the northern Argyll and west Dunbartonshire areas. Our members cars cover a wide range of the Riley Marque, with Pre and post-war marques are amply represented with several Monacos, a 12/4 Merlin, Lynx, Imp, a 12/4 Special and an interesting collection of postwar 1½ and 2½ cars.

 

Drive it Day 2022.

A text book drive all the way from Balfron through West Dunbartonshire in 3 Rileys - 22T Lynx, 14/6 Alpine and RMA , joined by a 1928 Austin heavy 12, with glorious spring sunshine all the way north to Arrochar. After lunch there the Rileys and crews continued north along the A.83 to summit of the Rest & be thankful in Argyll for a short pause to survey the scenery around the original road used in hillclimbs and similar motor sporting events back in the golden years of motoring! Drivers and crews changed briefly for the return down to Arrochar and thence for an idyllic trundle back down the A.814 (Loch Longside) to Helensburgh from where we dispersed on our homeward journeys.
