A bit about the Renault Car Club of Victoria
The RCCV celebrated its 60th year in 2013, making it one of the oldest Renault car clubs in the world. The club was founded on June the 29th, 1953 by an enthusiastic band of Renault 750 (4CV) owners who arranged a group drive to Point Leo. From this event the Renault Car Club of Victoria was born. The club’s first year membership was 63, and the club has steadily grown over the years, with memberships fluctuating to a current membership of around 250.
The club has a long history many motor sport disciplines, we have run motorkhanas, trials, rallies, autocrosses, observed section trials and economy runs. We also join with other car clubs in similar events such as the Victorian Hillclimb Championship, Victorian Motorkhana Championship and the Interclub Hillclimb Championship at Rob Roy
The RCCV organise a wide range of social events, including Drive Days, Movie Nights, and visits to automotive themed or other venues of interests.
The club is affiliated with both the CAMS (the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport) which allows our members to access the programs and resources implemented to foster the growth of motorsport within Australia. The club is also AOMC (Association of Motor Clubs) affiliated, which allows RCCV members who own suitable vehicles to register and drive them under the VicRoads Club Permit scheme.
Many RCCV members have a long history of Renault ownership and maintenance / modification and are only too happy to discuss your technical problems and share their experience.
