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.

Downton Motor Club is synonymous with the name ‘Mini’ and for 2023 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 41 events in 2023 - 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.
