Welcome to Downton Motor Club
Downton Motor Club is more than just a car club - as well as a range of exciting car related meetings, rallies and competitions we also have a number of shows and fun activities for all the family.
Throughout the year we also have our own fantastic set of 'Speed' Championships with qualifying events run at major motorsport venues across the country - these championships offer an affordable range of motorsport thrills and all at a reasonable cost.
Downton Motor Club - A great place to start your motorsport career.

The preparations for the 2024 Speed Championship at Downton Motor Club are well underway!
Our Speed Championship coordinator, Andrew Mathis, has been very busy in the background and today we can release a provisional copy of our 2024 event calendar. As always we aim to bring you a wide range of hillclimb and sprint events at some excellent motorsport venues. In 2024 we expect to have Downton classes at over 30 events. Remember -
* Membership of Downton Motor Club for 2024 is now open;
* The Speed Championship entry forms will be available in early 2024.
It is with great pleasure that we announce Adam Holland as the new Chairman of Downton Motor Club.
Adam had a very impressive year in the Downton Speed Championship piloting his BMW Mini R50 - the photo shows Adam with his many trophies at the DMC AGM and Awards Presentation evening.
Adam, on behalf of all Club members we thank you for taking on this responsibility and the Committee look forward to working alongside you in 2024.

Downton Motor Club is synonymous with the name ‘Mini’ and for 2024 we have special classes in our Speed Championships for road legal R50 and R53 BMW Minis (Class 4 and 4A). As we are running in a ‘road legal’ format there are no need for fire extinguishers, cut off switches, roll cages or full harnesses.
We have Downton Classes at 30+ events in 2024 - starting in March and going right through until the end of October. The ‘Speed’ calendar includes Sprints at famous circuits like Goodwood, Pembrey, Llandow and spectacular hillclimbs at venues like Wiscombe Park, Shelsley Walsh and Prescott - something for everyone.
