Club History: VIC

The MR2 OWNERS’ CLUB OF AUSTRALIA was formed by a few keen enthusiasts after a TOYOTA sponsored driver education day at Calder raceway over ten years ago! It is the oldest official MR2 club in the world.

The first meeting was held on 28 June 1991 at Dandenong, subsequent meetings have been held at the TOYOTA CONFERENCE CENTRE Port Melbourne, until recently, when we decided to adopt a more informal approach. They are now held on the LAST WEDNESDAY of every even month (except December) back in Dandenong. The August meeting is set aside for our AGM.

The MR2 OWNER’S CLUB OF AUSTRALIA caters for all TOYOTA MR2s, both the AW11 (1985, 1987 Australian delivery to 1990) to the SW20 (1990 – 1999) and most recently, the new Spyder.

The Club has a Monthly Run 2…….which is a Sunday drive to a lunch destination. Members take turns at organizing this event. We meet outside Duttons in Church St Richmond, at 10am on the LAST Sunday of each month.

We host events such as Navigational Rally’s, Hillclimb’s and 1/4 mile sprints. Our club is not financially large enough to host circuit events and we rely on invitations from larger clubs such as the HDT/HSV, Alfa Romeo and Honda Clubs for such events.

Each year we meet with the NSW club in Canberra for a weekend of events.

We have regular contact with other overseas clubs, in particular the Dutch, English and German Clubs. There is also a Internet MR2 Group, information from which is disseminated to the club via the monthly newsletter. The Dutch club maintains close contact with the chief engineer of the MR2 since visiting the factory a few years ago, we also maintain contact with this gentleman.

The MR2 Club is Incorporated and affiliated with Confederation of Australian MotorSport. A CAMS basic or superior is mandatory to take part in competitive club events.

Events organised cater for all interests, from picnics and BBQ’s, Social Outings, Road rallies, Car Trials, driver Education, motorkhana’s and Motor racing.

COME JOIN US, WE KNOW YOU’LL HAVE FUN AND BETTER APPRECIATE THE UNIQUE QUALITIES OF YOUR MR2!
