Quinton Motor Club was formed in 1959 and has grown to become one of the largest motorsport clubs in the West Midlands. Its reputation and respect in which it is held have grown similarly, resulting in its membership now based throughout the country - from Scotland to Devon. This is a result of the range of motoring activities that the club is involved in and from the recognition of its professional attitude to event organisation.
The Club's main focus is on rallying but it encourages members' participation in a wide range of events as they compete for the annual Clubman's Challenge. This is a series of events specifically aimed at introducing novice members to the pleasure of motorsport competition. The events are designed to be non-damaging for shopping cars and are held in a fun atmosphere.
Quinton also provides a large contingent of officials and marshals to assist on other clubs' events. Indeed we are one of only eight clubs in the country to be asked to organise a special stage on Wales Rally GB, Britian's round of the World Rally Championship. Club members are involved at all levels with WRGB, as marshals, members of HQ staff, Stage Commanders and Regional Organisers.
Quinton Motor Club promotes many varied events each year, but it is particularly known for its organisation of two major championship events.
The Nicky Grist Stages is an all forest rally held in Mid Wales and is a round of the prestigious national BTRDA Rally Championship. In 1995, 2005, 2010 and again in 2012, it was awarded the Bill Turner Trophy as "The best event in the BTRDA Rally Series'. The Nicky Grist Stages is also a round of the MSA Welsh, East Midland and North Western associations' Rally Championships.
The Horiba D'Isis Stages is an all tarmac rally held at MIRA (Motor Industry Research Association proving ground at Nuneaton) and is a round of the East Midlands, West Midlands and North West Association's Championships.
Both of these events offer new members the ideal opportunity to become involved in highly regarded events at whatever level they wish, with the confidence that highly experienced fellow members will be there to help when needed.
The Club meets at the Old Halesonians Association Community Sports Centre every 2nd and 4th Wednesday each month, commencing 8.30pm / 9.00pm.
Come meet your fellow club members talk motorsport and join in the friendly atmosphere. Various functions are also held on these nights so be sure to check our events calander to ensure you dont miss out!
