The Scunthorpe Motor Cycle Club is possibly one of the longest established sporting organisations in the area. Having been formed in 1923 the club ran up until 1927 and was reformed into its present state in 1929. We still have most of the original silver trophies from 1923 and the club meeting minute books form that time until this year. The club is affiliated to the East Midlands Centre of the Auto Cycle Union with the motto being 'sport and fellowship' as our badge shows.
Even in the war years although there were no sporting events, several of our members acted as dispatch riders for the Home Guards. Over the years we have organised and been involved with many and varied events, including trials, scrambles, grass tracks, hill climbs, gymkanas, display, demonstrations, RAC/ACU rider training, car and motor cycle main road trials, treasure hunts and the council summer motor scheme and trails training days.
We are proud to say that our current membership stands at around 100, with competitor’s ages ranging from 4 to 70+ years old The rapidly developing electric bike market has allowed a surge in Young members. The small wheel conducted route is very popular and a fantastic opportunity for Young people to get into Motor Sport. The lasting success of SMCC is due to the long term involvement and dedication of past and present officials and the well-known camaraderie and friendship amongst the motor cycle fraternity.
