Founded by Motor Sport‘s Bill Boddy in 1939 as a means for Austin 7 enthusiasts to race their cars, the 750 Motor Club now caters for historics as well as modern ‘bike-powered machines, hot hatches, BMWs and MX5s. It also runs the hotly contested MR2 Championship which online editor Ed Foster sampled a few years ago.

Since 1979 the Historic Grand Prix Cars Association has striven passionately to preserve the heritage of the titanic machines which made motor racing history.

The HSCC was created in 1966 by a small group of enthusiasts. They were frustrated by a lack of races for older sports cars and wanted to stop them being modified beyond their original specification.
