Welcome to the Association of South Western Motor Clubs
We are now running 15 different Championships and have close to 250 contenders each year.
The ASWMC was formed 60 years ago this month, on the 9th of March 1957, with the aim of supporting local motor clubs and safeguarding their interests and activities through group representation to the (then) RAC Competition Department. We were not the first regional association, as similar ones had been established in the North in 1948 and the Midlands in the early 1950s.
At the start the association had just 21 member clubs and this has risen steadily to 86 in 2017, making the ASWMC one of the largest and most active MSA Regional Associations in the country. 1960 saw the introduction of Road Rally Championship which, as far as we can tell, was the first properly constructed and recognised Regional Association Championship in the country.
We now run 15 different Championships and have close to 250 contenders each year, with multiple registrations pushing the number of championship registrants each year over the 300 mark. The efforts and skill of our contenders are celebrated at the annual ASWMC awards presentation in the New Year following the end of the championship season.
Could you be one of our champions? The only way to find out is to join us - register for a championship, compete and have fun finding out.
