Patron - OAM
Campbell Bolwell
Contact our Patron - OAM

The Patron of our Club is none other than the original Founder of Australia's most distinguished sportscar brand - a feat he achieved more than 55 years ago in his twenties. It was NSW enthusiasts who put Bolwell on the map when the Mk7 propelled the Brand into the public domain - and nationwide fame. And Campbell has never forgotten - maintaining a close contact with the NSW Club and many individual members, including our President. These days Campbell is overseeing the construction of his latest masterpiece... the Mk11 Nagari 500... at the same time working to help us promote the Bolwell Car Club of NSW. Far beyond his prodigious talent, Campbell remains humble, grounded and deeply connected with his enthusiast base.

Campbell was recently honoured as an OAM in the 2022 Australia Day Awards for his role in co-engineering the Bolwell Sports Car marque with brother Graeme.
