Vintage and historic cars spark a passion and since 1934 the Vintage Sports-Car Club (VSCC) has provided an arena for people to enjoy these magnificent machines both competitively and socially. Active in every aspect of motoring and motorsport for pre-war cars, the VSCC is one of the largest and best regarded motoring clubs in the world. With such a diverse range of motoring disciplines on offer there is plenty of scope to become involved, whether as a car owner, marshal, competitor or enthusiast. All are welcome to enjoy the VSCC and its many activities, but why not join this great movement to enjoy a range of members' benefits and, most importantly, be part of over 85 years of history and tradition?
Members enjoy discounted tickets to Club motorsport events, favourable rates with motoring service companies including auction houses, insurers, breakdown services and motor manufacturers (Membership Benefits). Members receive a monthly newsletter in both postal and online interactive formats and also receive our award winning quarterly 'Bulletin' magazine. At the Club’s headquarters in Oxfordshire a wealth of motoring history, built around an extensive reference library of books and periodicals, photos and films, is available to members (Library & Archive). What’s more, you don’t have to own a pre-war car to be a member; enthusiasm for their use is all you need. Whether concours touring cars or eccentric, unique ‘specials’ are your fascination, the VSCC upholds the tradition of this golden era of motoring for young and old at an affordable price.
VSCC membership still costs less than a tank of fuel..............for miles more enjoyment!
The Club organises some 50 social and competitive events a year, including race meetings, hill climbs, sprints, road rallies, trials and driving tests, all over the UK. These include:
- Extraordinary cars from the Edwardian era (1908-1919);
- Vintage (Pre-1931);
- Selected post-vintage thoroughbreds (1931-1941);
- 1950s sports racing cars;
- Formula 500 racing cars;
- Formula Junior cars and Grand Prix single seater racing cars built before 1961 can also compete at race meetings and some speed events.
Whilst the Club’s events embrace the competitive spirit, an over-riding social ethos gels the Club together so that whether taking in the scenery on a summer tour, racing at one of Britain's iconic circuits or simply enjoying a beer at a local pub meet you can be sure to enjoy the company of like-minded people.
With such a diverse range of motoring disciplines on offer there is plenty of scope to become involved, whether as a car owner, marshal, competitor or enthusiast. Marshalling at Club events is popular and sociable and offers the opportunity to get close to exciting machinery on a regular basis. Want to be a Marshal?
