"The Vintage Motor Cycle Club, with over 17,000 Members, united by a common appreciation of the engineering skills and vision of those who built the pioneer machines, has ensured that such machines are not preserved as lifeless exhibits in a museum, but are brought to life on frequent occasions in order that a new generation can marvel at the handiwork of the pioneers, and an older generation can once again view with nostalgia the machines they rode in days gone by."

 VMCC Motorcycle Sport


Motorcycle sport has always been central to the aims of the VMCC. After all, part of the organisations “mission statement” going back to 1946 states that. With non territorial sections for Road Racing, Sprint & Grasstrack / Speedway and many geographical Sections putting on “mud plugging” Trials almost every form of classic motorcycle sport is catered for by the Club.




British Historic Racing is an integral part of the VMCC that holds Road Race meetings across the country for VMCC members and invited clubs.  A wide range of historic motorcycles compete against each other in a range of events from pre 1934 solos, outfits & 3 Wheelers through to our exciting & fast growing BEARS series catering for machines from the 1980s. The Championship season runs from April though to September with each round taking place at various iconic circuits throughout the UK including Mallory Park & Cadwell Park.

The VMCC has a very active Sprint Section that organisations a number of competitive “straight line” Sprints at venues across the UK. All classes and ages of  machine are catered for from lightweight singles with girder forks to twin-engine supercharged nitro-burners!  Even if you have an (ex) circuit-racer or just a road-going hack, there's a category that you'll fit into!
