Fig 08 about the event - The largest Number of Figaros ever gathered in one place in the UK ever!

Fig 08 was the first national gathering for Nissan Figaro owners at the Heritage Motor Centre (HMC) museum at Gaydon, Warwickshire on Sunday May 18th 2008.


After the success of Fig08 we have decided to run a register for Figaro and Pike series cars in the UK so that when we run Fig10 we can let everyone know!
