LMC Start of Season Lunch and Championship Awards Presentation **Cancelled**

February 1st, 2020 • By: Chairman Aintree, Barbon, Events, Hillclimb, News, Results & Reports, Social Events, sprint, trackdays

It is with great regret that we have to announce the cancellation of the Start of Season Lunch & 2019 LMC Championship Awards Presentation that was planned for 15th March, entirely due to a lack of interest from members. Just half the award winners had booked to go, and with a total of just 44 tickets sold, the event was simply not viable. We will contact everyone who has bought a ticket and will issue a full refund in the next few days.

The Championship awards will now be available to collect at this year’s Aintree &/or Barbon events.

We aim to hold an End of Season lunch or dinner with an awards presentation in November in the hope that greater interest will be shown at the end of the year.

The Start of Season Lunch and Championship Awards Presentation

will be held on

Everglades Park Hotel, Derby Rd, Widnes WA8 3UJ

Commencing at 12.30 pm for 1.00 pm, the event will include an excellent three-course meal, followed by the presentation of the Liverpool Motor Club Speed Championship Awards for 2019.

Attendance will be by ticket only costing just £15 per person, the ticket price being subsidised by the Club.  The dress code will be smart casual (no jeans).

 All LMC members, wives, partners and our volunteer marshals are most welcome!

The meal includes a choice of menu for each course:-

2020 MSUK Yearbook is here

November 25th, 2019 • By: Chairman Aintree, Barbon, Events, Hillclimb, News, regs, sprint

The 2020 Motorsport UK Yearbook (the Blue Book) has been published and is now available to download in full HERE

The terminology used for all competition licence grades has changed in all disciplines and every driver and passenger in competitive motorsport now needs to have a competition licence. Some of these are free, some are not.

Drivers competing in Sprints &/or Hillclimbs need to be aware that there have been significant changes to Section S that they will need to read.

You can also download individual sections:-

Help wanted: Greenpower Electric Car Races at Aintree

September 5th, 2019 • By: Chairman Aintree, Bulletins, Events, News, Uncategorized

Greenpower Electric Car Races

Wednesday 25th September

We need volunteers to help with this year’s Greenpower event as once again we are looking after safety on-track for the Greenpower’s eleventh annual visit to Aintree.

We need at least a dozen people to keep an eye on activities on the circuit and to report when cars stop. Your help will ensure the event runs safely.
Would you like to be involved with this unusual event? It’s a great opportunity for Motorsport enthusiasts to contribute towards the careers of the engineers of the future.
There will be two 90 minute races for the Formula 24 cars (secondary education pupils) separated by a 1 hour race for the Formula 24+ cars (further education and corporate competitors).


What is Greenpower? The Greenpower Trust is a charitable organisation that promotes engineering as a rewarding career, while also focusing on sustainability, teamwork and the community.
How? Students have to design, build and then race simple electrically powered cars.  Or the school can buy a kit-car to develop themselves. Greenpower specify certain design parameters, mostly safety related, supply a standard 24v electric motor and batteries, and then the teams get on and build a car. Several of the cars contain amazing leading edge technology, and some past pupils have gone on to careers in F1 motorsport. The project is part of the National Curriculum and has now spread worldwide.

This is now a truly international event. In the last 2 years we have hosted teams from Poland, Portugal and Spain, this year there’s a team coming to Aintree all the way from Argentina!

For those of you who haven’t been before, there’s nothing strenuous about your duty, but don’t jump out in-front of one of the cars, some can be averaging over 35mph round the circuit and they don’t slow down for the corners! The day is particularly suitable for our less active (or more senior) helpers as you can sit down in the comfort of your car or arm chair (if you bring one!) and watch the cars go by. Can you help?


  Click HERE for a 3 minute Greenpower video

Signing on is from 8.15 to 09.00am, and the last race will finish at approx 4.45pm. There will be Breakfast provided from 7.30am for early arrivals. Hot and cold drinks and a sandwich lunch will be provided to volunteers too, but as the lunch break is only 30 minutes long, we recommend that you bring food & drink with you, as that 30 mins includes getting to & from your post; they keep to the timetable!
We already have a few volunteers but could do with several more. Motorsport marshalling experience is not necessary and there is no need for orange fireproofs. If you can help, or know someone who may be interested in coming along to assist with this charity event, please let me know. The more people we get, the more interesting it will be for all of us!

Provisional timetable for Greenpower Aintree 2019 event:-

Date: Wednesday 25th September
06.30 – Gates open
08.15 – 09.00 Marshals Signing-on
09.00 – Marshals’ Briefing
09.30 – 11.00 – Practice
11.45 – 13.15 – IET Formula 24 Race 1 (competitors ages 11-16) – (Awards at 1400)

13.45 – 14.45 – Formula 24+ (competitors ages 16-25) 60 minute race (Awards at 1500)
Approx 15.15 – 16.45 – IET Formula 24 Race 2(competitors ages 11-16) 90 Min Race (Awards at 17.15)
17.00 – Pack up


If you know of anyone else who would like to come along to keep an eye on the circuit please spread the word. But I do need to know who’s coming so that I can ensure there’s enough food for all.
If you volunteered earlier in the year, please contact me again anyway so that I know you are definitely still going to be there.

If you can help or for more information, please contact LMC Chairman, John Harden via our secure messaging service.

Whilst spectators are welcome we’d rather you helped, even for just half a day.
Access is from Melling Road, Liverpool L10 8LF – just follow the signs for Aintree Golf Centre.
But please tell us you are coming along!
