Owners Club of Australia (Western Australia Branch)
is a Club for enthusiasts of the Rolls-Royce and Bentley Marques
18 May 2020The Commissioner of Community Protection has announced that due to the Pandemic, Clubs and Associations have been granted an extension of time to hold their annual general meetings. According to our constitution we have to hold our AGM within 6 months of the end of the financial year. All we have to do is apply to the relevant department if we find it necessary to postpone.
this means is that both the N.S.W. and W.A. Branches will not be
hosting a Federal Rally but when we see what is unfolding around us and
the world , it is not that important. In fact, not important at all.
W.A. Federal Delegate.

The first Rolls-Royce
Owners' Club in
the world was founded in the USA in 1951. The second was founded in NSW
in 1956 (where founding members numbers 1 and 2, Barry and Margaret
Gillings, are still active) , and was followed by the third in
Victoria. It wasn't until later that the Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts Club
was founded in the UK. The
Western Australian club, a branch of the now Federation of clubs known
as the Rolls-Royce Owners' Club of Australia, was founded in
1965. You don't
have to be an Owner of a Rolls-Royce or post-1931 Bentley to be a member,
despite our Club name. We have always had members who don't have their own
R-R or Bentley just yet.
This is our website, our point of contact with our family of Rolls-Royce clubs worldwide, as well as the world at large. It contains (as the left-hand side indicates) articles, photo galleries, contacts and the like. The ARTICLES takes you to articles of interest, and the two most recent editions of the Club's printed quarterly magazine, WINGED MESSENGER, which is a .pdf (portable document format). From time to time articles of interest from the magazine are transferred to this website for future reference.
The Club has about 11 or 12 club runs a year, some of which are with other Clubs or organisations. R-ROC WA started the now-famous Gingin British Car Day more or less by accident, and it is now run by the Council of Motoring Clubs as one of the State's premier classic car events. We always have a strong presence at Gingin.
Other events are Sunday cruises, ending with a picnic or lunch at some suitable location; our annual concours d'Úlegance, where we polish up our cars for judgment and the awarding of trophies; and other events which may take our fancy from time to time.
Feel free to drop into our website and look around. It is not a "static" site but changes frequently!
