Formed in 1980 by a small group of enthusiasts, The Ford RS Owners Club has grown into an international car club catering for all RS models built by Ford since 1969. Members of the club are involved in many branches of motorsport and we have a very high standard of concours competition within our ranks.
Membership - The Club is run "by the members for the members" with a strong committee of dedicated enthusiasts. With membership of over 3,000, the club runs a dedicated office, open during work hours to handle any general enquires about the club.
The RSOC is probably the best source of information on your RS World Wide and in addition has an excellent classified section to locate RS Cars, new and used Spare Parts no longer available from normal sources and, as the RS Owners Club is all about enthusiasts, you do not need to own an RS to be a member as we are all into performance and standard cars.
Club Events - The club has a very active summer events schedule with local groups holding regional concourse events the length of the country, whether you enjoy looking at excellent standard or modified RS Cars, into the sound system scene, require performance parts or auto jumble, the regional shows make a great day out for the family or enthusiast alike. There are also circuit track days, allowing you to test your RS off the public highway. Don’t forget our biggest event, National Day, held each season.
Your RSOC Magazine "Rallye News" - We are justifiably proud of our award winning club magazine. The bi-monthly A4 colour format is packed with information on the club, technical help, local group news, all the latest RS information and the all important feed back from the members through the letters page.
