Motorsport clubs are the backbone of UK motorsport

Clubs & Organisers

Club Development

Motorsport UK recognises that motor clubs are the backbone of UK motorsport and is committed to aiding their development through a variety of resources and initiatives:

Taster & Entry-Level Competitions

To  help encourage newcomers, Motorsport UK offers a Taster Event permit, under which all competitors are deemed to be club members for the day. This allows clubs to run events for members of the public, making it as easy as possible for them to get their first taste of competitive grassroots motor sport from behind the wheel. Motorsport UK-registered clubs are permitted to run one such event per year in each discipline for public and non-club members. Apply for a Motorsport Taster Event and download an Organising Permit Application form.

Motorsport UK Development Fund

Motorsport UK provides a fund that offers registered clubs grant aid towards development activities. Since the fund was started, Motorsport UK has provided grant aid of over £1 million to assist projects worth a total of more than £5 million.
