Plymouth Motor Club

History...

PMC is based in Plymouth, Devon and was formed in 1908. PMC is the oldest motor club with the south west of England and celebrated its 100th year in 2008.

PMC promotes many forms of four wheeled motor sport, but this was not true in the early days of the club. In 1908 it was then called the Plymouth and District Motorcycle Club, with membership almost exclusively made up of motorcyclists. It was after the First World War that car enthusiasts started to infiltrate the ranks of the two wheeled fraternity. Early events consisted mainly of ‘road trial’ type events for both car and bike.

1952 saw PMC and Cornwall Vintage Car Club forming a partnership - Cornwall Motor Racing Ltd. - to promote racing at the Davidstow circuit in Cornwall. During the short career of this circuit, it hosted Cornwall’s sole Formula 1 race meetings until 1955. One of the many reasons for the demise of this circuit was the bad weather.

In the modern Club, it would be fair to say that rallying, speed hillclimbs and autotests are the main diet. The members compete in most disciplines, at all levels and with varying degrees of success. PMC also offer scatter rallies and treasure hunts, which are more aimed at the Clubman.

There is also a monthly social on the first Friday of the Month, which all members of the club can attend. Anyone who is interested in finding out more about and in joining PMC is more than welcome to join us at these socials.
