Celebrating Motorsport Month South West

Thursday 04 November 2021

Designed to champion the range of motorsport disciplines available around the UK, Motorsport Month South West provided the perfect opportunity to experience what Devon, Dorset, Cornwall, and Somerset offer motorsport enthusiasts. September’s local celebration showcased some of the best motorsport events and demonstrated the various pathways into the sport.

The concept of Motorsport Month South West was derived from Cornwall Motorsport Month, in which different motorsport events took place across the region throughout September 2019 and 2020. From AutoSolos to Hill Climbs, the spectrum of events showcased opportunities to either compete, volunteer or spectate in the sport. For 2021, Cornwall Motorsport Month was replaced by Motorsport Month South West to amplify motorsport within the wider South West region.

There was something for everyone at Motorsport Month South West, with the Association of South Western Motor Clubs hosting many exciting motorsport events. The activities kicked off at the start of September, including an Autocross organised by Camel Vale Motor Club and a Hill Climb in the beautiful scenery of Wiscombe Park. The iconic Watergate Sprint took place, offering a unique closed-road challenge for the competitors and superb spectator viewing over the north Cornwall coast, in addition to a variety of Speed events, a Classic Car Show and Car Trials throughout the month.
