MR2 Owners’ Club of Australia (VIC Branch) Inc.

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.
