CLASSIC & HISTORIC MOTOR CLUB
The Classic & Historic Motor Club has existed since 1977 and provides an interesting calendar running from April to October inclusive, covering a wide variety of social and mildly competitive events, allowing members many opportunities to enjoy using their vehicles in good company.
The club is a member of the Federation of British Historic Vehicles Clubs (FBHVC) and recognised by the Motor Sports Association (MSA), the club aims to encourage the use and preservation of our vehicles.
Each month members receive a copy of the club magazine (Classix) which provides among other things news of forthcoming events, reports and photos of recently held events.
The club actively promotes events that provide interest for partners too, including regular club nights. Social life continues in the winter with monthly Sunday Lunch gatherings at hostelries across the area, giving members the chance to continue contact and form new friendships. Once or twice a year there are weekends away and the occasional continental ‘jaunt’.
Our membership is drawn from a wide area covering Somerset, Bristol, Bath, Gloucestershire, Wiltshire, Dorset and Devon.
