Anglia Motor Sport Club was founded in 2013 following discussions between Cambridge Car Club, Chelmsford Motor Club, Eastern Counties Motor Club, Falcon Motor Club, King’s Lynn and District Motor Club, Sporting Car Club of Norfolk and West Suffolk Motorsport Club. These were the seven founding members.
In February 2014 Wickford Auto Club joined.
In September 2016 Green Belt Motor Club and Middlesex County Automobile Club joined.
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.
Anglia Motor Sport Club 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.
