About the Renault Owners Club
This guide has been put together to clarify some of the myths often heard about the Renault Owners' Club. It also goes to show what we do for our members and what our members do for us. We are all elected annually and no one is paid. It also allows you to decide if this is the club for you before you join. However you write this it is bound to appear "boastful" but is really just a reflection on how hard the members work to make this club successful. Which is why we are still here after 60 years I guess. We would encourage you to ask questions before you join. Advice is free. Many people use our resources and do not join, this is why the public resources are not funded by the membership fees.
All members are treated equally. This means we don't spend huge sums on events for a few (all events self finance)
Our membership represents all ages. Indeed all of our committee are UK based and in employment.
Our membership Secretary is in his 20s and others are in their 60s.
We believe all Renaults are important and whilst primarily our membership is made up of Classic Models and Modern "base" models, we have an active, sport, modified and none car based section.
Most of the day to day chat happens on Facebook. We know not all people use this media so we have a forum too which is monitored but is quieter.
No part of this website or the forum or facebook is funded from Membership fees. All fees are used only to fund aspects of the club all members receive equally. Principally the Magazine, Insurance and Affiliations. All other areas self finance or generate income for all the members. All committee members are unpaid volunteers and the magazine, website, shop and all other areas are run by unpaid members.
Whether your car is a classic, brand new or something in between, this family orientated club has something for everybody. Take a look through our site where you will find details of our services, high-quality full colour magazine, family events, classified ads and lots more.
Established in 1952 and supported by RENAULT UK.
To promote mutual and friendly relations amongst members with an interest in Post 1940 Renaults, their history and continued manufacture right up to the present day. We are still the recognised UK club for owners of all Renault vehicles built after 1940.

Member Club of Renault Classic - Renault Classic is the new name (2011) for the organisation run by Renault to look after the Heritage of the Renault Marque and is based in Paris. This allows members of the Renault Owners Club to access factory documents, technical data and attend events organised by them such as World Series and events on the continent. It should not be confused with other organisations using similar names.
Support for Dacia Vehicles (Renault Based) is now offered by the Dacia Owners Club http://www.daciaownersclub.com
With annual AGM's it has progressed to it's current level where it is still recognised by Renault as the only supported focus point for Post 1940s Renault Owners. Also created around this time was the Renault Freres Club that deals primarily with pre-1940s cars and was founded with the agreement of Renault UK to specialise in this niche area whilst allowing the Owners Club to handle all the models to the present day. Each year the clubs join together at a number of historic events, The Centenary in Paris, Histoire & Collection Events and the NEW Renault World Series Events where owners take their cars to a number of circuits around Europe to display and drive their cars at these events and hopefully obtain a Bronze, Silver or Gold Challenge Cup.
In 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 every UK and a number of European world series event was attended by members of the ROC.
