A brief History of the Club

The Early Years

Back in 1995 a few people began to discuss the possible formation of a Hamilton-based car club that was less competitive and more inclusive than what existed at that time. Eventually these weekend BBQ talks turned into action with the late George Hawkins, affectionately known as "Father George", issuing an invitation:

The Club formed that night of 3 September 1995 soon grew and needed to become properly organised and formalised. The Club as we know it was incorporated on 5 October 1997.

In 2011, Father George penned this piece about the early days for the February issue of our Club magazine, Kollector:

Turning 25 in 2020

Going from strength to strength, the Club celebrated the milestone 25th birthday in 2020. In preparing for the celebrations, many old stories were found and much history uncovered. A lovely 160 page A4 size commemorative book was published.

Photos and more from the celebrations can be viewed here.
