President — Jamie Gilbert
Jamie joined the Club in 2012, competing on a regular basis in club championship events with my HSV E2 Clubsport, a few mods but still fairly stock.. Added a new Gen F GTS to the mix in 2014 and it rocks!
Lots of memories with my E2 Clubby, I drove it from Perth to Brisbane via the Great Ocean Road, Sydney, Grand Pacific Drive, then returning via Bathurst :-)
Born & Bred in the UK, I spent much of my life watching F1 on Sat/Sundays, and used to enjoy a trip to Sillverstone every now and again, along with a healthy dose of Touring cars.. On arriving in OZ, I knew I had to get myself a V8 at some point.. I own/run a IT Company (JAF Solutions) which provides SAP Consulting services around Perth and Brisbane, so an I nerd at heart!
Apart from the normal President duties, my Focus is on the Website which was design by myself (graphics by Matt) and also keeping the facebook page updated with interesting content for everyone, oh and improving my track driving skills!!

Motorsport Manager— Laurie Parmenter
After driving a desk for many years as an IT Manager I managed to escape in 2014 and purchase a more comfortable seat in a HSV R8. I joined the HSV Owners Club in the same year and loved the track time as well as the time mixing with the group of like minded enthusiasts. This year I have joined the Committee as Motorsport Manager and look forward to working with Mike to maintain the high standard calendar of events that the Club provides its members.
To help pay for this hobby and try and clear my head of some of the IT stuff crammed in over many years I now do property maintenance and gardening which gives me plenty of time to think about going faster at the next event.
Media Officer — Matt Marsland
Matt joined the club in 2011 after he and his dad got a hold of a modified VH commodore. Since then he has been learning the tracks and driving techniques that the club presents to its members, moving past the beginner level of motorsport.
With others Matt also helps run the website and facebook page, and enjoys filming, taking photos and compiling them into edited sequences and club DVD's. So if you see him out with a big camera don't forget to smile!
