The Rolls-Royce Company was formed in 1904 between the Hon C.S.Rolls and Henry Royce (later Sir Henry). In 1931 the Rolls-Royce Company bought Bentley Motors and was manufacturing both marques until 2000 when the Company was split into Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Ltd and Bentley Motors Ltd.
The Rolls-Royce Owners' Club of Australia was formed in 1956 in Sydney with a foundation membership of nineteen. Today the Club has Branches in every State and Territory and has over one thousand members who own over 1,200 Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars dating from 1907 to the present. The primary purposes of the Club are threefold:
to encourage ownership, maintenance and restoration of those motor cars manufactured by the various Rolls-Royce and Bentley companies;
to promote practical motoring, safety and courtesy on the roads;
to encourage social and community activities among the members.
The RROCA is a very active club. Membership includes people of all walks of life, who are united in a common interest of enjoying fine motor cars and the motoring and social activities that go with them. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in Rolls-Royce or Bentley motor cars, whether or not an owner. Non-owners may join as Associate Members and two or more people may join as Joint Members.
