Next MR2 Club Event – August

Sunday 27 August – Maintenance Day in Geelong

MR2 garage day

  • Date: Sunday 27 August 2017
  • Meet Location: Will be provided to attendees who have RSVP’d
  • Time:  Will be provided
  • Details:  Our Track Record Editor and owner of a fabulous garage including hoist will be hosting a Maintenance Day where MR2 owners can get some help with basic maintenance tasks.   
  • At this stage we already have some cars on the list but there is still room for more.
  • This is also intended to be a ‘learn about your MR2 day’ for Club Members, and as a break from working on the cars, I have a disassembled NA S54 manual transmission as well as a disassembled 3SGE motor available, and we could hold a discussion on their working components.
    The SW20 turbo, AW11 and manual Spyder units are similar, so for owners that have never seen these motors and transmissions apart, this could be a rare opportunity to learn more about the internal workings of your MR2.
  • Lunch:  The Club will supply a BBQ lunch.

Welcome to the home of the MR2 Owners’ Club of Australia (VIC Branch) Inc.

Scroll down to see our upcoming events

We are a group of people linked by our love of this fantastic sports car, the Toyota MR2. The MR2 was in production from 1984 starting with the AW11, the SW20 1990 to 1999 and the ZZW30 Spyder/MRS 2000 to 2005.

We have a lively and diverse group of members ranging from those interested (and currently competing) in motorsport events though to the more social with everything in between.

We are CAMS affiliated and have members participating in Hillclimb competitions, track days and show and shine events. We also have authorisation from VIC Roads to issue Club Permit Scheme (CPS) registration for MR2s over 25 years old.  A huge saving on full registration if you drive your MR2 no more than 90 days per year.

We have an event on the last Sunday each month and they usually consist of a planned route and a lunch, taking in the beautiful scenery, twisty roads and fantastic food across all areas of Melbourne and surrounds. We promote the use of UHF radios to keep the banter flowing and events have many different themes and are competitive, social and great fun all at the same time.

We also run weekend events spread throughout the year to locations such as the Great Ocean Road, Mt Hotham and the Grampians. These events can even be interstate in partnership with other MR2 Owners’ Clubs, we also have the MR2 Nationals which is held every two years.  So stay tuned!

Please join us at one of our events, see what we’re all about, before deciding to become a member.
