Hi! my HSV Owners club of WA journey started after buying a VC Brock and VK SS and wanting to do a few track days. My love of Holdens and wagons started as a 9 year old when our neighbour bought a HQ Premier 253 wagon. Two of my uncles had GTHO’s and dad had a Cortina. I guess I jumped the fence early. I have until recently, with the purchase of a British Classic, only owned Holdens and still have a Clubsport Sportswagon.

Although the VC HT only made a few track visits it has been the wagons doing most of the heavy lifting both as daily tradie wagons and weekend warriors. I like to keep my cars basically standard except rims maybe.

My partner Katherine now has the keys to the HSV to preserve it from racking up the Km’s so it is now a special treat to get behind the wheel at weekends rather than just use it as work car.

The club has become a major part of life: attending track days, car shows and social events along with socialising with friends built over the 15 years I have been a member.

I get so much pleasure from the club that it is nice to give back. Over the years I have run social events, been the Vice President and I am back in the President’s chair for 2022. The other thing keeping my time off work busy is 4x4 and hooking up the camper trailer and heading bush. In 2015-16 we had a shot at doing a lap of our fine country. But with no set plan we ended up spending most of our time in the NT and far north QLD. It’s too big to do in 12 months so we will be off again in the future.

I am aways happy to talk about cars and some of the fantastic car museums and tracks I have visited here, in the UK and Europe. See you soon.

I joined the club back in the early 90’s when we used to meet at Melville Motors in Attadale (member number 24 to be precise) and been involved on and off in the club ever since then. Now in my third year as VP, I see the future of the club having a balance between motorsport and social activities so that we have a great mix of cars, members and events each year.

Unlike our wonderful President I like to modify every car I own to stupid levels, as horsepower makes up for lack of driving talent.

My day job, I am the Chief Executive Officer of Pharmacy 777 running the Australia wide operations for our 100 plus stores and 900 staff plus various Board positions including VP of MSWA.

Cars are a passion, my wife and son are very patient to put up with my many excuses for owning so many loud cars.

The HSV club and motorsport I consider my “third space” and fun outlet; my car history is varied having driven Holden V8’s since the age of 20, my second car was a 85 VK Calais Director then an 88 Walkinshaw and moving on to own every HSV product since.

I own up to my Wife, Tax man and Bank manager with my membership cars as my 2014 VF GTS, VT II GTS, plus 1984 Vk Group 3 Brocky with my need for speed in my newly completed VX Clubsport tarmac rally car plus other cars and SUV’s for daily driving duties.

I am easy to spot in the club; I will be the one with 777 plastered all over my car, with the shiniest paint (neat freak).

Having purchased a VF GTS in 2015 (wish I still had that one!.), I was wanting to be more involved with people who enjoyed owning such great cars so I joined The HSVOCWA. Less than a year later I was so involved, I took on the Treasury role, filling the shoes of a Member who had been doing that for 15 years or more. Whilst being part of the club, I have been able to expand upon my life-long interest in Motorsport. In 2016, I began building my first track car, a VX Clubsport R8, which I still have and continue to develop, this has enabled me to enjoy competing regularly in club track days and I still enjoy social events wherever possible.

I am a business owner - Artform Industries & Diamond Lacquered doors - a bespoke kitchen manufacturing and design company looking after builders, home owners and renovators with all their cabinet requirements including Lacquered cabinet doors supplied direct to the Trade.

I enjoy living in the Perth Hills with my wife, Jen and 3 young sons who I hope one day will share the same passion I have for Motorsport and this family oriented club as I do. I am someone who always likes to challenge myself and this is shown in the many interest I have, mainly focused around Car related activities but also include Long Range shooting, 3D printing, RC Drag Cars, but above all else I enjoy camping trips away with family and friends.

I hope I can continue being an asset to the club and committee members, and I look forward to seeing you all at our various events.

I joined the HSV club in June 2020 after owning my VX Clubsport R8 for 3 and a half years and finally deciding it should be enjoyed and driven more, rather than hiding under covers in the garage. I have always loved cars, having owned nearly 30 in my 20 years of driving. I have always been a Holden V8 fan, from when I was a kid and first got an understanding of different vehicles. I spent a lot of time and money modifying all shapes and sizes of cars from a Subaru WRX STI to 100 series Landcruiser and many cars in between. Currently, besides the VX, I also own a 2013 VF SSV W310 wagon and a Subaru Forester turbo. Fun fact, I have never owned a Ford of any kind.

Previously, I helped run all aspects of the Perth-WRX car club, from forum administration and moderation, organising motorsport events, cruises and meets, merchandise and trips away. I successfully took the club to its 4th Motorvation champion trophy in a row in 2008, where I organised the entire weekend for the club and its members and the 20 odd participants.

I rarely take a back seat to anything I am involved in, so I decided after only 9 months in the HSV club, that it was something I wanted to get involved with and help out with and was nominated to the Memberships Committee position in April 2021, partially filling the gaping hole left by Jamie Gilbert. In 2022 I moved across to the secretary role and the social events coordinator role as well.

Outside of the club, I work for GHD Engineering Consultants as a Senior Survey Project Director, where I have been employed since 2007. I am a father to 3 kids and spend a lot of my spare time volunteering with my wife at motorsport events such as Targa West, Targa South West, Forest Rally and other WARC events with Team Hotel.

My wife and I met through our involvement in both Perth-WRX and through official duties at Targa West in 2010. She is very understanding of my passion for cars, but hates that I buy and sell cars so often, however, I have slowed down a bit with that these days (at least I think so)

I look forward to spending years helping with the HSV Owners Club. I look forward to meeting many of you out and about. See you out there.

Jamie GilbertMemberships Officer
I joined the club in 2012, so this year (2022) it will be 10 years in the club, I have spent most of that time on the committee performing the roles of General Helper, Memberships, Vice President and President.

I am a strong believer in the club and what it can offer it's members, and therefore my current roles as Memberships officer is well suited.

Being a director of an IT Company ( JAF Solutions) I assist with the IT side of the Club too and recently rebuild the website.

I joined this great club in 1991, I think, member No 35 so Jason Brotherson has me covered there. I am lucky enough to be one of 3 life members currently and cherish that title immensely. I enjoy everything about what the owners club stands for and love the competition side of things and always have.

I have owned a couple of genuine HDT/HSV’s over the journey but decided early on that they are too good to modify so bought my beloved VK Blue Meanie which started as a beautiful street car replica and I have slowly but surely converted it into a trailer-sailer track only monster.

See you at the track!!!

Hi everyone! I am the very proud owner of an E2 Clubby. She is my first but hopefully not my last HSV. I joined the club in 2017 mostly with the intention of going along on a few cruises and maybe displaying in show-n-shines. Just a couple of years later and here I am a fully-fledged member of the committee.

Away from the club I am a Branch Coordinator/Administrator for a large Australian owned workplace needs company. So if you are ever in need of stationery I am the person to see.

Very much looking forward to being the Merchandise Officer and hopefully getting to know as many members as possible

David joined the club through the Brian Gardner 1st year free HSV club membership offer after buying his 2009 VE Clubsport. Track days began after popping down to Barbagallo and saying hi to a few club members who encouraged and guided him into track days. After its first few years as a daily driver the motorsport infection spread and with the help of other club members the Clubsport morphed into a dedicated track car.

Outside of the club David works for Dnow Australia a Global distribution business supplying valves, pumps, PPE and MRO to the Oil & Gas and Mining Industry

I have been a member of this great club since the 1990’s and it has consumed my social life since then. I have had a couple of club cars only. The mighty brown VC sle which circulated around the club for a while. I then found my pride and joy VH SS (XV2) which I have slowly modified into a serious race/targa car which is still road legal would you believe. 

I have raced all over this great country since immigrating from NZ back when Jesus was a boy. Bathurst, Phillip Island, Darwin, Sandown, The Bend and of course many laps at Wanneroo plus 10 years of Targa West competition. 

I was truly touched to be given life membership to our great club last year and truly cherish this honour. I love helping out around the club in anyway possible and enjoy talking to new members, in fact I like talking to anybody anytime.

G’day to you. Having now completed 3 years as President, I'm now stepping back to let others take control of the Club. I am remaining on the Committee as a volunteer, as I strongly believe in the adage Act, Belong, Commit. Sometimes called GA or Pappa Smurf, I’ve been in the Club since 1992. During that time, I’ve had a HSV Walkinshaw and a HDT VL Group A, these days I trundle around in one of the last CV8Z Monaros made. I tend to keep my cars in original condition and enjoy them as they were built, rather than them “bigger and better than the next guy”.

The HSVOCWA has been a large part of my life for the last 25 years, during which time I’ve been to the Nationals, competed in Classic Rallys, Tarmac Targa Rallys (both here and interstate) along with the many events that the Club has successfully organised and run over the years. In 2017, I retired after working at UWA for the last 31 years apparently this was supposed to give me more “free” time to do the things I wanted to do – Ha! What I hope to be able to do is spend more time with the wife, Jenni, of course and more time enjoying the company of the great friends I made in the Club.
