Toyota Corolla Estate Hybrid


Requests: Contact your racing/leisure rep as appropriate
Sponsors: Johnson & Perrott, Pinergy, and Bike Fitting Ireland. Our sponsors are covering the cost of leasing the car, while the club must fund the running expenses.

There is a list of rules below, but the over-riding principle is that whoever takes the car is responsible for it, and should use it in a competent and sensible manner..

Declan Quigley has also written a great guide on how to behave in a race cavalcade.



  1. The Club car is available to drive by any Orwell Wheelers Member (named for insurance purposes)
    1. with a full Irish driving license
    2. aged between 25 and 75
    3. with no penalty points

  2. At any one time, a limited number of members of the club may be insured to drive the car. Insured members are regularly updated. If another member wishes to use the car, we can arrange to have one of the existing names removed and the new name added.

  3. When not in use, the car is stored at the Johnson & Perrott premises in Tallaght (Unit C| South City Business Park). Note that they are only open during business hours from Monday to Friday. If you wish to use the car during the weekend, you'll need to pick it up on Friday and drop it back on Monday.

  4. Any fines / penalty points accumulated are the responsibility of the person who is driving the car

  5. The car is to be returned with a full tank of diesel. Fuel receipts can be recouped from the fuel fund - contact the club Treasurer.
  6. The car is returned in a clean condition, inside and out.

  7. Car-pooling is recommended to ensure best use of the car – if travelling to a race or event using the car ensure fellow members are aware the option of a lift is there.

  8. Central coordination of the car is through the Google Calendar – if you have a request to use the car get in touch with a Racing/Leisure/Track/Youth/Women’s Rep (contact details)

  9. Priority is given to club events, then to stage races and other events with Orwell members participating. If there are multiple requests for the same day the priority will be discussed among club reps, overall priority decision by Club President, Treasurer and Secretary.

  10. Generally bookings reflect when the car needs to be picked up and dropped off. If more than one person wishes to use the car during a weekend (e.g. one on Saturday and one on Sunday), they can arrange to hand the car over during the weekend.

  11. The car is an advertisement for both Orwell Wheelers and the car's sponsors, please ensure both are respected when using the car.

  12. On returning the car, please ensure it is clean and with a full tank.
