Somerton & District Motor Cycle & Light Car Club

The club was formed in 1948 and initially ran Treasure Hunts and Road Runs. In 1952 we ran our first Scramble and Trials meetings, but it wasn't until the late 1960's that the club started running Grass Track events.  Throughout the 1970's and 1980's  we continued running Trials, Grass Track and Motocross, bringing us up to the present day. The club currently hold up to two Grass Tracks and multiple Trials events during the racing season for Adult and Youth competitors.
