It seems only yesterday that a team that is now known as MOWOG Inc had their first meeting. Prior to this two groups of people, Mini enthusiasts, then unknown to each other were talking amongst themselves at the Ohakea Air Base dual car sprint on what should be done to make a club happen.
This enthusiasm lead to the swapping of contact details and a few phone calls later, the two groups were linked, hence MOWOG was formed on the 20th of April 1993. The club was formed by eight people, most of us strangers, all of us had a keen interest in the Mini motor car.
We all pitched in $10.00 to start a float to make the club official, wrote a constitution, joined Motor Sport NZ, and simply got on with it.
The key objectives
To promote good fellowship between Mini motorists and their associates.
To instill pride of ownership and technical understanding of the marque.
To preserve the Mini and its derivatives and to foster all its uses.
MOWOG still enjoys its friendly, casual atmosphere to this day, 30 years after that
MOWOG Inc is an incorporated society and is Motor Sport New Zealand affiliated with a keen membership who enjoy all facets of Mini ownership from restoration, racing, customising or simply socialising.
Membership is open to any Mini enthusiast or its derivatives (Mokes, Riley Elf's, Worley's, BMW Minis).
