Scotland has been at the vanguard throughout the history of motorsport. Despite our size, we are the fifth most successful nation in the world for producing Formula One World Champions.

“Motorsport Month Scotland” is designed to be a celebration of all four-wheeled motorsport on offer in Scotland. We want to champion the range of motorsport disciplines available, showcase some of the best motorsport events and demonstrate the various pathways into the sport.

Our intention is to raise the profile of motorsport in Scotland, enhance collaboration between clubs and the Association, with support from Motorsport UK.

We will be highlighting opportunities for motorsport enthusiasts to get involved in a range of events, whether they are interested in spectating, competing, or volunteering.

For this year, we have chosen to target some specific events because of the anticipated numbers that will be involved:

    We need a single, composite motorsport PR stand from a range of Clubs at each of these events. We need 2 or 3 Clubs to support this initiative at each event (with maybe around 6 – 8 people to staff a stand). This will be a great way to showcase your Club whilst also demonstrating what Scottish motorsport has to offer.

    Although we are targeting three specific events this year, the benefit will be for all Scottish motorsport clubs, regardless of location or preferred discipline.

    Please email if you can help. We need to know as soon as possible about involvement with the stand at the Jim Clark Rally so we’d appreciate your response by Friday 19 May.

    Come and be a part of the action!
