Club Alpine Renault GB
Alpine Renault was formed in the Summer of 1989 by a group of enthusiasts dedicated to Alpine-Renault cars. The club was launched at the Renault Parts Centre at Swindon on 31st July 1989 under the name Club Alpine Renault GB. In 1991 the Club became a limited company adopting the official title C.A.R. Ltd, retaining 'Club Alpine Renault' as the normal club name.
Membership numbers obviously vary from year to year but generally are of the order of 340, mostly resident in the U.K. but there are a number of overseas members, in Europe, the Far East and America. It has a committee of 10 members elected for three years, 1/3 of whom retire on an annual basis. The membership year commences on 1st August.
The Club caters for owners and enthusiasts of the following Alpine cars:-
A106, A108, A110, A310, R5T1/2, GTA and A610 Spider and all vehicles built in Dieppe or under licence
It is appreciated that there are many enthusiasts who cherish the cars but are not in the fortunate situation of owning one. All are welcome to join, no differentiation is made in membership, all members enjoying the same privileges.
Our objective with Club publications is to produce three editions of the Club magazine "Le Journal" each year, together with a number of Newsletters. Contributions to each of these publications are warmly welcomed by the respective editors. The Club maintains a stock of regalia including tee shirts, sweat shirts, and windscreen stickers.
Participation in motor sport is actively encouraged and to this end the Club has it's own individual Championship, involving both hill climb and sprint events. (The Club is affiliated to the Motor Sports Association Ltd.). Several Club members are also regularly entering their cars in Historic rallies.
Registrars are allocated to each model to provide technical support and advice for fellow members. The Club maintains an excellent archive and parts lists and service manuals are available to members.
The Club has a varied calendar which may vary each year but which generally includes at least one Track Day, several social events (one cross channel visit) and one coinciding with the Annual General Meeting, when all members are given the opportunity to air their views and comment on the Club's activities. At least one prestige event is put on during the Summer, to which our foreign Alpine Club colleagues are invited, our own members regularly support similar events in Europe wherever possible.
Members also have full access to this web site including the technical articles and forum.
The Club membership year runs from 1st August, for which the annual subscription is currently £30. Half year membership is available for £15, for those joining after 1st February. In either case there is a joining fee of £10.
