The Victorian Mini Club Inc (VMCi) is based in Victoria, Australia and is devoted to that brainchild of the late Sir Alec Issigonis - the Mini, and all its derivatives. We have over 1000 members who own cars from the humble original Morris 850, to the latest Rover Cooper and more recently, the New Mini, the successor to the proud Mini Heritage as now produced by BMW.
The VMCi was established in 1993, but was an amalgamation of the Morris 850 Club (est. 1962) and the Mini Car Club of Victoria (est. 1977).
The Victorian Mini Club is affiliated with Motorsport Australia, and through this, with the Federation Internationale De L'Automobile (FIA). We are also affiliated with the Association of Motoring Clubs (AOMC).
Through our affiliation with Motorsport Australia and several other Car Clubs in Victoria, we are involved in all aspects of motoring with regular tours around the countryside, driver education events, monthly meetings with guest speakers, social get-togethers, Concours d'Elegance displays, and a wide range of motorsport activities including Circuit Racing, Sprints, Motorkhanas, Autocrosses and Rallies.
VicRoads recognises us as a suitable car club to participate in the Club Permit Scheme which substantially reduces the cost of keeping cars over 25 years of age on the road.
The VMCi publishes a monthly magazine - MiniMag - which features articles about club events, technical tricks and tips, and 'MiniMart' for buying and selling cars and parts.
You are sure to find an aspect of Mini motoring that will appeal to you. Check out our calendar for upcoming events!
