We are one of the few track day organisers that provides dedicated sessions (without Saloon Cars) for drivers of single-seat/open-wheel/sports racing cars (and expert drivers in Caterham/Westfield type cars).

10-minute sessions, starting every 30 minutes. What a great opportunity to do some testing before your next event.   MSUK Competition licences are not required.

LMC Speed Championship scores are updated

July 25th, 2022 • By: Chairman Aintree, Barbon, Events, Hillclimb, News, sprint, Uncategorized

The latest positions for the Liverpool Motor Club Speed Championship are now available on our Championship Website: www.speedchampionship.com

 

We are looking for a volunteer to take on the role of Championship Coordinator for the Liverpool Motor Club Speed Championship.

Ryan Smith took on the role for 2022 but he has had to stand down mid-term in order to concentrate on his expanding business commitments.

The job entails:

  • Contacting other event organisers toward the end of the year to see if they will invite our championship to their events (usually a repeat of the previous season)
  • Applying for the MSUK championship permit (Jan)
  • Dealing with competitor registrations as they come in (weekly, Feb to the end of June)
  • Updating the Championship score card after each event (weekly Mar to Oct)

It’s not a particularly onerous role and would suit anyone who has a basic knowledge of MS Excel spreadsheets
Guidance will be available throughout.

Interested? Want more info? Please contact LMC Chairman John Harden – without obligation via our contact us page: https://www.liverpoolmotorclub.com/about/contact-us/

(Note that MSUK rules state that a Championship Coordinator cannot be someone who is taking part in the championship).

Doug Gorge RIP

June 29th, 2022 • By: Chairman Aintree, Barbon, News

We regret to report that respected LMC member and competitor Doug (Douggie) Gorge sadly lost his fight with cancer and passed away on Monday this week.

In recent times Doug was well known to many of his fellow sprint and hillclimb competitors as the very competent driver of a blue Renault Clio that he shared with his son Paul, for a time holding the SC Class record at Aintree – until Paul snatched it from him.

Doug’s funeral was held on 7th July with well over 100 of his family, friends and acquaintances in attendance to give him a good send-off.

On behalf of all those in motorsport who knew Doug, we extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends. We shall miss him greatly.

John Harden, LMC Chairman
