ADELAIDE CAR CLUB

Adelaide Car Club was formed in 2020 by a group of car enthusiasts and notable figures in the South Australian automotive subculture, with the aim of building a modern, relevant and inclusive club for anyone with an interest in cars and motorsport.

 

Our inclusive approach connects people to each other and to the rich and rewarding culture surrounding cars and motorsport. 
 

We welcome everyone with a love of cars and strive to make our shared passion accessible and exciting for all.
 

Adelaide Car Club is a facilitator, not a gatekeeper. Our priority is to make people feel welcome rather than to enforce traditional barriers and boundaries. 
 

Our focus is on delivering tangible benefits to our members and creating unique and engaging events that encourage participation, competition and camaraderie.
 

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to create and run unique and accessible events for car enthusiasts and deliver genuine benefits to our members. 

AGM

The Annual General Meeting of the Club will be held on Tuesday 5 October 2021 at the office of the Australian Driving Institute, 7 Benjamin Street St Marys at 6.30pm.
