The Oldest Motor Club in the UK
We believe that The Liverpool Motor Club is the oldest active Motor Club in the UK, being a direct descendant of the Liverpool Self-Propelled Traffic Association which organised a trial for self-propelled vehicles (what we would now call a Hill Climb) on Liverpool’s Everton Brow in 1896. There’s lots more information on our history page.
The Club has a long history of promoting motor sport events, with an current emphasis of organising Sprints. Over the years the Club been successfully involved in various other areas of motor sport, including Autocross, Autotests, Hillclimbs, Production Car Trials, Rallies, Sand Racing and Navigational Runs. It has been particularly successful in encouraging new members to start competing and then providing the stimulus for them to further develop their skills.
Our current programme of events include three sprints and two track days held annually, all on the famous Aintree Circuit. In 2013 we are promoting two hillclimbs at the spectacular Barbon Manor in Cumbria, jointly with Kirkby Lonsdale Motor Club, as we help to secure the venue and its events for the future.
We also organise a highly successful Speed Championship jointly with Chester Motor Club. Please see the Championship’s own site for further details by clicking here.

See our Club Calendar page for this year’s dates.
Liverpool Motor Club is a member of the Association of North Western Car Clubs (ANWCC), the Association of Northern Car Clubs (ANCC), The Welsh Association of Motor Clubs (WAMC), and is affiliated to the Motor Sports Association (the MSA) which is the ruling body of UK motorsport.
Our members regularly receive invitations to compete in or marshal on a wide range of events run by other motor clubs. Our main object is to encourage interest in motoring in all its forms, and although emphasis is on 4 wheeled motorsport, membership is open to adults of any age or sex. Neither age, nor type of car owned, precludes entry from many events, and it is certainly not necessary to own a vehicle to be a member. Nearly three-quarters of the Club members are competitors and although the maximum benefit of membership is gained by active members, armchair members and spectators are just as welcome.
As part of its communication process, the Club also publishes ‘The Bulletin’, its own newsletter containing news and information for members. There is a continuing need for willing helpers, both male and female at our events and there is a vital and interesting role to be played by anyone keen to act as a marshal or other representative of the Club. Interested in finding out more? Then come down to one of the events in our calendar, and meet the members of the friendliest motor club in the North West, or apply for membership by either downloading the membership form or by using our contact page and e-mailing the membership secretary for details via snail mail. Check our Calendar page for details of our forthcoming activities too.
