We are nothing without our local community, and we love to get behind local people and organisations that are truly part of something BIGGER!
| Jay Robotham (Toyota 86 Series Racing Driver)
Entering the fledgling Toyota 86 Racing Series (T86RS) in its fourth year in 2018, the then 15yr old Jaylyn Robotham instantly repaid the faith shown in him to secure a podium on his opening weekend. Jay went on to finish the series in 5th place, a remarkable achievement given that he was ineligible for a full round due to an age dispensation.
This first series showing further earned Jay a call-up to the TA2 Series in Asia and in his first ever moments to practice in a left-hand drive car, broke the lap record in Bangkok and started only his second TA2 race from podium.
Melbourne City Toyota is proud to partner with Jaylyn for the second year and wish him continued success both domestically and internationally.

| Harlequin Rugby Club
Our association with Harlequin Rugby goes back, way back than many of us would remember. Brent Cannon, previous owner of eponymously named Toyota dealerships in Camberwell and Heidelberg was a former player for Quins, and the connection continues to this day - Alex Bettes, current Senior Finance & Insurance Manager at our Heidelberg location played second row for the Club.
But the Quins history goes even further back, to 1928 in fact. It has a fine tradition of providing a platform for youngsters from 8yrs right up to seniors in the division of the Dewar Shield Premier Division of Rugby Victoria. The Club has had great success over the years in several grades of the old VRU.
We encourage our guests who may be fans of the code, to keep a keen eye out for The President’s Lunch series of events which feature guest speakers from the wider world of rugby. You can keep up to speed with all around Quins using the links below.
| Heidelberg United FC
Heidelberg United Football Club was founded in 1958 and has been one of the clubs most heavily involved in shaping the ‘round ball’ landscape both at state and national levels. As a founding member of the National Soccer League in 1977, the Club had risen from humble beginning in the Victorian Metropolitan Leagues.
The Bergers are duly proud of the achievement of being represented by no less than 15 players at international level, including the recently resigned Melbourne Victory Coach Kevin Muscat. Women were not left out of this history either. In 1978 the Club established their first womens team. They won the Championship in 2007 and are the longest serving NPLW team.
Amazingly, along with junior and mens’ teams, Heidelberg United FC fielded at total of 22 teams in 2016. This represents over 400 players and an incredible extended family which we think is just great and fits perfectly into the spirit of being part of something bigger.
