The club was formed by a group of motoring enthusiasts in February 1953. The main idea of the club was for the promotion and enjoyment of motoring and motor sport, whilst offering a social element as well. Currently our club has a christmas quiz, annual awards night, treasure hunt, classic car tour, winter monthly meets/social nights, social trips, our marshalling crews are a great bunch to get invlolved with if thats something you would like to get involved in, we are involved with rallies, targas and hill climbs – so we have lots of events for all types of enthusiasts. We are also really keen to get some younger members on board as they are the future of the club.
The club has gone through many changes over the years, as has it’s committee, yet some of the earliest members are still as active
today as when they first joined.
Throughout the year, the club promotes a range of it’s own events, but also help many other associated clubs around the south west, enabling us to provide an even bigger range of activities for our members, whether it be a quiet natter night with friends, or a full on championship rally event.
Our summer months are spent dealing with Wildlife Wiscombe, five clubs Wiscombe and the three clubs Charmouth events, plus a classic car tour, social and marshalling activities.
However we don’t just hibernate through the Autumn and Winter months, these are some of the busiest times. There’s social, natter and quiz
nights, visits, preparing hillclimb venues, lots of organising and marshalling for classic, trials and endurance events, and to cap it all off, April brings our jewel in the crown event, the Somerset Stages rally. It’s most definitely all hands on deck for that one.
