    Default RENAULT CAR CLUB CELEBRATES 60th ANNIVERSARY

    RENAULT CAR CLUB CELEBRATES 60th ANNIVERSARY

    This Saturday 12th November the Renault Car Club of Australia is celebrating its 60th anniversary with a ‘Cavalcade of Renaults’ at Peter Warren Renault, Hume Highway Warwick Farm, commencing at 9.30am until 2.30 pm.

    The club was formed in 1951 by a group of Renault 750 enthusiasts and the club has continued to cater for owners of the quirky French cars up to the present day including the popular Megane models (not least the stunning RenaultSport Megane 250).

    The display will include a beautiful 1908 ‘AX’ Renault, along with a special display of over 30 lovingly restored and maintained Renaults sold in Australia over the past 60 years (along with a few very special imported models such as the infamous rally-inspired Renault 5 Turbo and Alpine A110).

    Everyone knows someone who had a Renault in the 1970’s and 80’s, with the popular R10, Car of the Year R12 and R16 giving faithful service to thousands of Australians who wanted something a little more sophisticated then the Holdens of the day. And for those who wanted to go racing or just own something really special, the famous ‘Gordini’ models were the giant killers of the day.

    Those who have followed motorsport over the past 60 years will have seen Renaults racing at Bathurst in the 1960’s, and competing in a host of trials and rallies in the 1970’s in the hands of Renault Club members.

    More recently the ‘naughties’ has seen a resurgence of performance Renaults with a series of award winning RenaultSport hot hatches which have built up a cult following, and once again offer style with safety and performance.

    All these cars and more, will be on display at Peter Warren’s Renault dealership on Saturday.

    So if you have a old Renault or even a new one and want to come and see a great selection of cars come an bring the family for a look.

    Peter Warren Renault will be looking after us with a free sausage sizzle ...and they also have a nice cafe on site.

    The RCCA hopes to see you there.

    Congratulations on reaching this significant milestone, well done.

    I was a foundation member of the Renault Car Club of Western AUSTRALIA, back in 1967, but that club folded years ago.

    I can only repeat Rod's words, congratulations all round. Some may remember I was a founder member of the RCCA Canberra Branch started by Paul Murphy in 1970.
