2019 was a successful year for the Motoring Group with an ever growing group of RACA members enjoying the camaraderie of other motoring enthusiasts. We held the RACA Motoring Tour in Canberra, staying at the Commonwealth Club and visiting the National Museum and several local wineries and restaurants. In August we held the Annual Dinner, focusing on the growth of Women in Motorsport with two very experienced drivers: Emily Duggan and Chelsea Angelo. In December, several of the Motoring Group committee were present to award the RACA Motoring Trophies at the Historic Sports and Racing Car Association Summer Festival. The year was underpinned by our regular Fluid Fridays - a chance to have an informal drink or meal with other members.
2020 will see the continuation of our Fluid Fridays (last Friday of each month) as well as a broader mix of other events. We will have our Annual Motoring Tour in the Autumn and the Annual Dinner mid Winter time. This year we will return to inviting other car clubs to visit us to show off their unique vehicles and we also plan to have some focused events on new technologies as well as club drives to vineyards and external events.
Our first major event will be the Winston Churchill Trust Exhibition on the 12th February - an informative talk about the art of traditional coach-building by a 2018 recipient of this prestigious fellowship. Please contact the RACA Events team for registration. We look forward to seeing RACA members at one of the evenings or events at the Club.
