Sevenoaks and District Motor Club was founded in 1954. The club is one of the larger MSA affiliated motoring clubs in the country and the membership reflects this, with members competing in most aspects of competitive and fun motorsport.
Our members have ranged from people involved in the lowest level of club motorsport to the likes of Vic Elford who is also our president and has raced in F1, sports cars and has won the Monte Carlo Rally.
The club is actively involved in most aspects of motorsport. We organise our own sprint championship and summer autotest series as well as other events such as AutoSOLO, scatter and 12-car rallies. There is something for everybody whether you wish to compete or help out with marshalling or organising.
From January 2020, Motorsport UK will be introducing a requirement for all competitors in Motorsport UK permitted events to hold a Motorsport UK competition licence; in addition to your club membership. This will be at a minimum the new "RS Clubman licence" and applies to new competitors as well as to anyone previously competing solely with a club membership card.
The good news is that this entry-level RS Clubman licence is completely free of charge.
This initiative is being introduced by Motorsport UK to encourage participation at grass roots level as well as to ensure that all competitors are covered by comprehensive public liability and personal accident insurance. It replaces the Non-Race Clubman licence, (which in 2019 cost £29). All licence holders will have access to the Member Benefits Programme which provides substantial discounts on well-known brands’ products and services and can offset the costs of competing.
If you have not previously held a Competition licence or not renewed in 2019, it will also be a requirement to apply for a new RS Clubman licence in order to compete or be a passenger in Club events. This is free of charge and applicable to Autotests, Autosolos, Trials, Cross Country and Road Rallying including 12 Cars and Scatters. Please note: an RS Clubman licence is not required if you are already in possession of a current 2019 Competition licence.
You can apply for an RS Clubman licence from the Motorsport UK website HERE. The application is very straight forward and only takes a couple of minutes to complete, sign up now and be ready to compete in 2020.
Not everyone is as keen to keep going as the chap below - but he did have fun!
