President & Membership Officer — 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!!

Treasurer — Daniel Manester
Having joined the club in 2015 after purchasing a HSV Gen-F GTS I have been able to expand upon my life-long interest in Motorsport. In 2016 I built my first track car, a VX Clubsport R8, which has enabled me to enjoy competing regularly in club track days and social events wherever possible.
I own Artform Industries - a bespoke kitchen manufacturing and design company looking after builders, home owners and renovators with all their cabinet requirements.
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. Some of my many other interests are American BBQ, Home brewing and above all else enjoying camping trips away with family and friends
This being my first year on the executive committee I hope to be an asset to the club and look forward to seeing you all at our various events.

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. In 2015, I joined the Committee as Motorsport Manager and look forward to the challenge of maintaining 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 which gives me plenty of time to think about going faster at the next event.

Social Events - Trevor James
I joined the club in 2009 after a life time of being a motor sport fan. I am currently the proud owner of one of the first factory backed performance cars in a VC Brock Commodore and also one of the last with a VF R8 Sportswagon.
My day job is a self employed carpenter, I also enjoy 4WD and getting out to far off places with the camper-trailer in tow.
I have previously been on the committee as Social Event co-ordinator, vice president and president. I left the committee in 2015 to travel making sure to take in many race meetings and car related sights along the way, Ferrari in Maranello and Cape York very different but both highlights. I am happy to be back at the club and looking forward to some social activities of varying types and some track time.
