50th Anniversary Commemorative Display & Lunch
2014 is a milestone in the history of the RCCA. 50 years ago George Gosbell, Ron Creber and some other boys decided they wanted to play cars – and the Rover Car Club of Australia was born. And what a year 1964 was. The P6 was only a year into manufacture, and while it did not have the Gas Turbine engine originally planned for it, Donald Campbell broke the land speed record in his turbine powered Bluebird. The Beatles toured Australia, Melbourne woman Judy Hanrahan became the first female teller appointed by the Bank of NSW since WWII and Dawn Fraser was named Australian of the Year following her exploits at the Tokyo Olympics.
The Club has been commemorating this half century landmark throughout the year, however it culminated in a celebratory car display with sit down lunch in Melbourne, and a British Car Show display in Tasmania.

VicRoads Club Permit Scheme
The new "Club Permit Scheme" has been introduced as from 1 February 2011, changes introduced include ability for Club Vehicles to use the road for any purpose for up to 90 or 45 days within the permit period and which is now logbook based. As a result Car Clubs, including RCCA, will be subject to a more formal process of accountability for the proper operation of the scheme.
RCCA now has developed a set of Guidelines for RCCA Members who wish to have their cars registered through this concession scheme. Please see details of the Scheme and how RCCA will operate within the Scheme here.
