Somerton & District Motor Cycle & Light Car Club

The club was formed in 1948 and initially ran Treasure Hunts and Road Runs. In 1952 we ran our first Scramble and Trials meetings, but it wasn't until the late 1960's that the club started running Grass Track events.  Throughout the 1970's and 1980's  we continued running Trials, Grass Track and Motocross, bringing us up to the present day. The club currently hold up to two Grass Tracks and multiple Trials events during the racing season for Adult and Youth competitors.

Our charity trial donation went to Chris Wells, a previous club member who after having a bike accident is now diagnosed as tetraplegic and in need of full time care. The funds went to help him get an electric wheelchair, and he came to watch the trial at Binegar on 4th March and left the following message:

"On the 26th September 2015 I fell from my motorcycle and suffered life changing injuries. Life is now very different but a life none the less. I would personally like to thank all those involved with Somerton MC for their kind donations. It will go towards equipment to give me more independence. I may not ever ride again but I am looking forward to being able to watch again. Thank you."
