The UK Club was formed as a focus for the small number of Birkin owners in the UK. If you own a Birkin and have not registered with the club we would love to hear from you. It is completely informal and there are no membership fees and no committee. birkin@eleventowns.org.uk

As there are only a few owners spread over the country, regular meetings are not feasible. However, we do have a club pitch at the Stoneleigh kit car show which we share with the Shropshire Alternative Car Club and the Bertini Owners. Members are also welcome to sign up for the ShACC monthly newsletter.

Birkin cars were manufactured in South Africa but the company Birkin Performance Cars is no longer operational. They briefly had a presence in the UK and later there were attempts to establish agents. Kitcardirect (www.kitcardirect.co.uk) have had Birkin spares. Sales of cars to the USA and Canada were through Birkin Direct USA and their website is still live, but have not investigated whether they are still active.

A brief history of Birkin can be found here.

There was also a thriving on-line community on Yahoo but in 2020 Yahoo pulled the plug on their groups. Some members of the group joined the USA7s forum or Ozclubbies.
