The Mazda MX-5 burst on to the Australian scene in 1989. Soon after, a group of enthusiasts approached Mazda Australia with the idea of forming a club for MX-5 owners.

With the assistance of Allan Horsley of Mazda Australia, the first gathering of MX-5s in NSW was held at Vicary's Winery at Luddenham on Sunday 24 June 1990. On that day 104 members signed up to become the Foundation Members of the Mazda MX-5 Club of NSW. A photo gallery from the day is HERE. The first Club Run was held two weeks later on 8 July and some photos from the day are HERE.

Legalities as they are, the Club could no longer exist as a group of MX-5 owners banded together as a "club", so a new Constitution was formed which allowed for the club to become an Incorporated Association. This means that the Club is now a legal entity which offers members the security of being protected and controlled by the Incorporated Associations Act and the Rules of the Club.

Membership has now grown dramatically and developed into seven regional chapters. We have people of all ages - from 0 to 90ish - and from all walks of life. 

The common bond ... our love of the MX-5!
