The HSV Owners Club of Victoria (Incorporating HDT) participates in many social and special events held throughout the year. The Club has held many social events over the years including Social Drives and Mystery Drives to well known tourist locations across the state:
- Scenic Drives to the much loved Phillip Island where we enjoyed the fun parks and chocolate factory, and along the way stopped for a long lunch.
- Wine tour weekends to the wonderful wineries Victoria has to offer.
- Tour buses arranged so you just have to sit back and enjoy the weekend.
- Pizza and Pasta nights.
- Steak night’s and fun for all.
- Club run BBQ’s at Sandown to support the Motorsport Rounds.
- There is also HRT Factory tours were you can get up close to the V8 Supercars.
The club has held many family Club Christmas Party’s the beautiful Como Gardens in the Basin is one of the favourites, with mini train rides, face painters, clowns, jumping castles and even a visit from Santa on the day. A real favourite with the kids.
Many of our Monthly club meetings have surprise guest speakers, such as, V8 Super Car Drivers, Garry Rodgers Motorsport, John Crennan (who joined GM Holden 50 years ago and went on to found Holden Special Vehicles and Holden Racing Team with British entrepreneur and racing driver Tom Walkinshaw), Cameron Mc Conville, Steve Owen. Joe Kenwright, Motor magazine writer, David Whitehead (who was involved with Peter Brock the Energy Polarizer). These are just a few of the fantastic guest speakers.
One of the clubs Special events has been the opportunity to hold Motorkhana’s at Holden’s Proving Ground Lang Lang a real privilege for Holden Fans. With courses set out on the skid pan to test you’re driving skills, a BBQ lunch and a Go to Whoa competition at the end of the day. Then an invitation to follow a Pilot vehicle around some of the iconic facilities and roads and a quick lap of the speed bowl before making your way to exit the facility.
There has also been Motorkhana’s at Decca Shepparton and the Police grounds at Attwood.
All these events are held at a completely professional level with safety the upmost importance. All members are welcome to join in on the day, you don’t have to compete to be part of the event. Come along help out with the BBQ, learn to do some timing or you can be a flaggie on the day. These events are always enjoyed by all.
We look forward to seeing you at the next event.
