What is Motafrenz?
In 1990, two guys figured they couldn’t be the only ‘non-straights’ at a motor racing meeting? They were determined to test their theory. Advertising in the gay press was undertaken and an initial meeting convened. Motafrenz exists today as proof their theory was correct!
The Club is an incorporated association and was established to:
- Conduct motor vehicle orientated events for members of the GLBTIQ community;
- Organise social events for members of the Club;
- Communicate with other motoring clubs and/or associations with common interests and, where appropriate, co-operate and participate in joint events;
- Participate in events organised by the GLBTIQ community; and
- Promote the Club to motorists and the wider community.
The Club has around 150 members who share a common interest in, and enthusiasm for, motor vehicles of all types.
Members have a combined collection of almost 250 cars.
The Club welcomes anyone who has an interest in modern and/or classic cars. Motafrenz has always aimed to cater for a wide variety of people. So whether your car is as rare as a Roller or as cute as a Capri, Motafrenz is the club for you.
If you would like some more information on becoming a member, please contact us.
Non-members are welcome at all events. Many of our events cost nothing to attend.
Motafrenz has a very active calendar of events, with something happening almost every week.
Our monthly meetings are a good way to meet people. So are our weekend drives & lunches.
Other events include country touring, weekend trips away, restaurant nights. We also attend car shows across the State.
Motafrenz has a high profile within the GLBTI community and participates in a number of events within the Midsumma calendar.
As a member of the Association of Motoring Clubs [AOMC], the Club promotes and actively participates in motoring displays such as the British and European, American and Australian Motoring Shows.
