The Eastwood and District Motor Club was formed in 1948 by a group of motoring enthusiasts who worked or lived on or around the A610.
Over the years the Club became more closely allied to the Nottingham area, meeting in various localities; nowadays we meet on the first Tuesday of the month at them Royal Oak, Watnall.
Meet our Committee
The Club is affiliated to Motorsport UK, which is the governing body of motor sport in the UK, and is also a member of the East Midlands Association of Motor Clubs, the Association of North East Midland Motor Clubs, the Association of Northern Car Clubs and the Association of Classic Trial Clubs.
The Club organises two multi-use special stage rallies per year, the Phoenix Stages, and the Harold Palin Memorial Rally, both at Fulbeck Airfield. As well as the stage rallies, we organise Autotests, Production Car Trials and Autosolos during the summer months.
These events are ideal for those looking to take part in competitive motorsport, but who may be looking for something with less expense, without the need for specialised vehicles, or perhaps something which is available to those too young to have a driving licence. Several Members are also enthusiastic competitors in Classic trials in different parts of the country.
Our Club Chief Marshal co-ordinates requests for marshals from local, regional, and National and International events giving Members the opportunity to be part of many different events, and to encourage and assist newcomers to become fully trained.
