Welcome to our second month of isolation.  Today also marks the second anniversary of our launch night!

There is an air of optimism and hope for a gradual release from restrictions in the coming weeks and months now and the committee has been working hard behind the scenes getting things ready for a return to physical events instead of the virtual and remote things we have been doing the last month or so.

We did hold our first virtual members meeting in April, which appeared to be successful with a number of members attending.  It was certainly nice to see some familar faces!

If you require assistance from Jo or Graeme during this time, please no longer phone the Bell Motorsport phone number (03 5979 1599) and instead phone Jo on 0412 661 900.


Welcome to our new members, we look forward to seeing you at an upcoming event!

Don't forget to catch up with this month's update from our President, Graeme Bell here.


Our May Members Meeting will be held virtually on Tuesday, 5 May at 7.30pm, with a virtual tour of club sponsor, Creative Custom Cars.  

Unfortunately we can't give too many details on other upcoming events right now.  Be sure to keep an eye on our calendar for when we can resume events.


In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Motorsport Australia Board has approved changes to the expiration of certain licence types. 

In addition, all licence holders will also be given the opportunity to utilise a buy one, get one free Shannons Motorsport Australia Championships General Admission ticket for the round of their choice in 2020 or 2021.

To see what this means for your licence, click here.


VicRoads are still processing renewals at their offices, however wait times are now much longer than normal and you must adhere to social distancing measures. Please instead consider posting your renewal to VicRoads.  You can pay by cheque or VicRoads have advised that you can use this credit card form

If you are yet to receive a signature from us for your renewal, we request that you post them to us for the time being.   

To be as fast and efficient as possible we recommend to sign your renewal, attach your payment and post it to us with a stamped envelope addressed to VicRoads inside. We will then sign on behalf of the club and post it straight to VicRoads for you.

We would like to remind you that you do have three months after the expiry date to pay your renewal, but you can’t drive it once it expires, just like normal registration. 

If you have any questions about your renewal please call or email us.  If you are not comfortable providing your credit card details or don’t have a cheque book, give us a call and we will see what we can do to help you.

For more details on club permits, including where you can send your renewal for signing, please visit our Club Permits page on the website.
