Bournemouth & District Car Club offers a range of Motorsport events in the Dorset area throughout the year, which are suitable for both novice and experienced competitors and also volunteer Marshals.
The Club has a diverse membership, and continues to successfully encourage new members of all ages. Whilst The Clubs social calendar has been curtailed recently, the website is regularly updated, there is a monthly “bulletin” distributed by email, and an active social media presence.
Entry level Motorsport is provided by Production Car Autotests, some on smooth grass fields, others on tarmac, but all offering the chance to drive at your own limit, over a set course in non damaging conditions. These are ideal events for beginners, although many of our more experienced drivers take part, to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and great value for money. Suitable for ordinary road cars and not requiring any modifications. Offering a full day of competition for a £35 entry fee Autotests are probably the cheapest form of Motorsport available and are great fun !
Twice a year a Sprint is held at the Clay Pigeon circuit near Dorchester. A timed speed event over the compact and challenging tarmac course. Suitable for novice or experienced drivers, there is a class for almost every type of car from standard unmodified “shopping” cars through to specialist single seaters running slick tyres and wings. Basic safety equipment is required such as helmet, racing overalls and gloves. During the day competitors usually have the opportunity of five timed runs on the course.
Two of the Clubs largest events are Single Venue Tarmac Stage Rallys held at a large test site in Dorset which was recently described as the UK version of the famous Nürburgring. The site provides opportunity for competitors to drive at speed on special stages round the network of smooth roads. Rally cars of all types, including Historic, Clubmans or specialist 4 wheel drive are eligible, with crews traveling from all over the UK to compete. The event is supported by a large contingent of volunteer marshalls, timekeepers, radio crew and officials, many of whom are Club Members.
The Club does have a great reputation for providing well organized, good value “Grass Roots” events. The Committee are all active competitors and keen to welcome new ideas.
