Joining the Club

feature-general

To join …

You are about to join the Victorian and Tasmanian Chapter of the largest single-model car club in the world, as recorded in the Guinness Book of Records.

As a member, you will benefit from our monthly magazine with reports on Club activities, upcoming events, technical advice on your MX-5 and, more importantly, the opportunity to share your experiences with other devoted Club members who made the decision to buy what we believe is the best sports car available in Australia today.


Full Membership

Available to any natural person of at least driver’s licence holding age who is the driver and/or co-driver of a Mazda MX-5. If opting for the printed version of the Club magazine, mxtra, Full memberships receive one copy per household. Full membership is required for those wishing to obtain a competition licence to take part in motor sport.

Family Membership

Available to a family (defined as two adults and their dependants residing at the same address). A Family member may participate in the events of the Club and enjoy the same rights as Full membership except for a limitation of one vote per adult. If opting for the printed version of the Club magazine, mxtra, Family memberships receive one copy per household. Family members are eligible to obtain an age-appropriate competition licence to take part in motor sport.

Friend Membership

Only available to any natural person sponsored by a Full member for the purpose of participating in one or more Club functions annually or who was previously a Full member but now no longer owns or drives a Mazda MX-5. A Friend member may participate in events of the Club but, unless accompanied by a Full member, may not win trophies or prizes.

A Friend member may not use this category of membership for the purpose of obtaining a CAMS, AASA or other form of motor sport competition licence, or for the purpose of obtaining Club Permit registration for a classic or historic car. A Friend member has no voting rights, and does not receive the Club magazine, mxtra.

If joining as a Friend, you will need to nominate your sponsoring Full member. A Full member may sponsor up to two Friend members.

  • More than one person from a couple or family is welcome to join the Club, but at least one must be a Full Member.
  • Others may join as Friends, or two adults and their dependants under 18 (residing at the same address) may join under a Family Membership, with both adults being recognised as Full Members.

Please note:

  • Two individuals (eg: husband and wife) may not join as a single membership; either both must be Full Members, or one must be a Full Member and the other a Friend, or both may join as a Family.
  • Motor sport participants: To obtain a CAMS licence to compete in “serious” motor sport events, you must be a Full Member or a Family Member.
