The Rolls-Royce Owners' Club of Australia (WA Branch Inc) 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. When the parent Club was founded in Victoria in 1956 there was already a thriving Rolls-Royce Enthusiasts' Club in the UK, so we adopted "Owners" instead of "Enthusiasts" to avoid any possible confusion.
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.
