|The Sprite Car Club was first established in 1972 by Reinhard Walker, Richard Stokes, Mandy Stokes, Dean King, Helen King , Kevin Warren,and Marilyn Warren. The idea of forming a Club grew from a mutual interest in Sprites.In August 1972, two Sprite owners/ enthusiasts were looking for spare parts at an auto wrecker when a third Sprite owner/enthusiast arrived on the scene for the same reason. They decided a Sprite Club was needed, and to tag as many Sprite owners as possible.
The inaugural meeting of the Sprite Club of South Australia was held in the staff live-in quarters of the National Bank in North Adelaide on Wednesday, 13 September, 1972. Approximately ten people were present and elected Kevin Warren as President and Joe Walker as Secretary.
The rest as they say is History.
All of the founding members are still active in the Club.
With over 120 members and a good variety of events throughout the year, including Club runs, Sprints, Weekends away, Barbeques, Social outings and Motor sport, the Club has continued to grow.
