History of MR2 Nationals : A gathering of MR2 owners from more than one State met in Goulburn, New South Wales in 2003 to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the NSW Branch of the MR2 Owners Club of Australia. Many believe that this was the first MR2 Nationals Meeting. It was from that meeting a suggestion to hold an MR2 Nationals meeting in other States of Australia on a regular basis was made.
However it was not until four years later in 2007 that a true MR2 Nationals Meeting was held in Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory. This was followed by the MR2 Nationals 2009 in Bathurst, NSW, the MR2 Nationals 2011 in Bright, Victoria, the MR2 Nationals 2013 in Hobart, Tasmania, the MR2 Nationals 2015 in Brisbane, QLD, the MR2 Nationals 2017 in Adelaide, SA and the MR2 Nationals 2019 back in Canberra, ACT.
Next year we are heading back to NSW. We’ll be heading to the picturesque Hunter Valley/Newcastle region for a great weekend. It will be a great sight to see plenty of MR2’s cruising through the vineyards and open plains.
In this episode of Shannons Club TV, it features a great review of the 3 Toyota MR2 generations and our own club founder Kevin Clarence sharing his passion for the cars. Shannons Insurance have kindly shared a clip of this video last year at the MR2 Nationals 2019 Canberra, to celebrate Kevin’s birthday which coincided with the MR2 Nationals dinner function. The members have enjoyed watching the video and thrilled to see our own club founder.
Thank you for all entrants for attending the MR2 Nationals 2019. We hope you had great weekend away with your favourite cars, our common interest – Toyota MR2. We hope you made new friends and be part of Australia wide MR2 club family. We hope you enjoyed the some of our scenic roads and had chance to tour of the nations capital. We would like to thank Neal Bates for opening up his workshop for us for the weekend, which demonstrate the theme of this weekend, that is about passion for the car. We hope to see you again in our next MR2 Nationals event in 2021 in NSW.
