Spectators

Spectators are welcome at all of the clubs events. Like all motor sport events, the events held by WMC are potentially dangerous, so spectators are asked to follow the instructions of course marshals at all times.


Formation of Club

The Westmorland Motor Cycle Club was formed as a result of a meeting of motor cycling enthusiasts at Kendal on 29th January, 1910. There were seventy members by the time the first event was held on Good Friday of that year, when a hill climbing contest was held up Huck's Brow on Shap Fell, a road which later became renowned to generations of lorry drivers for its severity in Winter. The most popular form of sport in those pre-first war days would appear to have been hill climbs and events were held up Brigsteer Brow, Bank Head, Tow Top, Orton Scar and the Greyhound.
