Anglia Motor Sport Club

King’s Lynn & District Motor Club is one of the 11 member clubs that make up Anglia Motor Sport Club (AMSC). The club was founded in 2013 following discussions between Cambridge Car Club (CCC), Chelmsford Motor Club (CMC), Eastern Counties Motor Club (ECMC), Falcon Motor Club (FMC),  King’s Lynn & District Motor Club (KLDMC), Sporting Car Club of Norfolk (SCCoN) and West Suffolk Motorsport Club (WSMC). These were the seven founding members of the group.

In February 2014 Wickford Auto Club (WAC) joined the group. In September 2016 Green Belt Motor Club (GBMC) and Middlesex County Automobile Club (MCAC) joined.  Herts County Auto and Aero Club (HCAAC) joined the year after. In May 2019 Harrow Car Club (HCC) joined the group.

The purpose in forming the group was to combat the decline of grass roots motor sport in East Anglia. All of the clubs involved were to a greater or lesser extent suffering from lack of competitors, organisers, and marshals for the events that they were running, and needed to pool resources in order to keep the events viable. At the time, the MSA had quite restrictive rules governing who could or could not be invited to club level events, and the idea of an umbrella club was formed as a survival mechanism that would allow us to remain compliant with the rules of the MSA.

AMSC has no individual members, just member clubs. The individual members of those clubs can take part in the club level events organised by the other member clubs.

AMSC also has a website, containing a lot of information; if you have a sense of adventure and like a challenge it can be found at Anglia Motor Sport Club.

Each of the member clubs has a representative sitting on the AMSC committee which meets bi-monthly.
