Western Reserve

Western Reserve


The Western Reserve Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America was established in 1960—just 4 years after the national organization was formed.  Our section is a member oriented group of Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts.  Although the Western Reserve Section is a division of the national organization and the Great Lakes Region, each section conducts its own activities and events, has its own board of directors and officers, has its own newsletter, and has its own by-laws.

The goal of the Western Reserve Section is to plan a variety of activities and events that appeal to the varied interests of the members. You will find:

  • Annual holiday party in January.
  • Cleveland Auto Show.
  • Defensive driving and autocross.
  • Technical Sessions.
  • Dealership meetings.
  • Road Rallyes.
  • Special Events like “Spread Eagle Event” and "Fall Leaf Tour".

This section is fortunate to have a great relationship with the dealerships within our section.  Most have sponsored at least one event during the year.  In return, we strive to support them.  This valued relationship is a benefit to both sides.

The Western Reserve Section has a dedicated, hard-working board which strives to plan events for the good of its membership.  Many members of our section participate and assist in national events around the country as well as serving on the national board and committees.  Following Starfest 2004, our section was named the Section of the Year.  If you are not already a member, we hope you will join us.  You’ll be glad you did.  Regular business meetings are held the first Tuesday of the month and are open to all members.  Check our website calendar for location and time.
