Club Membership

The Austin Healey Sprite Drivers' Club Inc. was formed in July 1966 as a Club for Drivers - not Owners. This subtle naming was to recognise the fact that Sprites and Midgets were designed as economical "fun" sports cars that had exceptional handling and that the Club would be concentrating on the kind of activities that reflected this.

The AHSDC became an affiliated member of CAMS (Confederation of Australian Motor Sport) that year and later, after becoming a Charter Member of the Marque Sports Car Association in 1971, spent many years as a strong competition orientated Club. The competition calendar continues to this day with many members participating in events far and wide. However, road events, always very popular, have an enthusiastic following, with a combination of weekly runs (Cruze Nights) in the summer months and regular
social drives or touring events at other times of the year. The social calendar remains as strong as ever, with something for everyone!
