Photos from FDMC events: copyright of Richard FieldFarnborough District Motor Club (FDMC) brings the world of club motorsport to Hampshire & beyond.  We’re one of the area’s most active clubs, with events including sprints, Solo / Autosolo events, slaloms, autotests, car trials, and, with Sutton & Cheam MC, the unique Abingdon CAR-nival weekend. You can enjoy any of these, as a competitor, with an ‘everyday’ roadgoing car, or one prepared for competition, or by getting involved with organisation and marshalling.

Members can also compete in the events of other local motorsport clubs and, through the region’s Area Association of Motor Clubs, in larger events throughout southern England. Learn more by browsing this site, and our Forum, or from the contacts on our Committee or Contact Us pages. Social events are centred around club nights, on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, at our regular meeting place: The Plough and Horses pub, 90 Fleet Road, Farnborough.

About FDMC

About FDMC


Formed in 1958, through the subsequent decades FDMC developed a growing band of competitors and calendar of events, including the Winter Mixture road rally, Dimanche Tour and Summer Sort Out special stage rallies, Barley Mow autocross, Sprint Royale, Rotherfield Park hillclimb, PCT’s, and autotests.

FDMC today

Among the current wide range of activities, the largest event, in collaboration with our partner clubs, is the Abingdon Motorsport CAR-nival. Further FDMC events, as you can see on the Calendar and Event Reports pages, include, each season, two Sprints, several AutoSolos, Twelve Car navigational road rallies, a loose surfaced Slalom, and the members-only Boxing Day autotest. Through our membership of the ACMSC and ASWMC, members can also take part in many events run by other clubs, across the south of England and beyond. New members are always welcome, and there are lots of opportunities to get involved, on the competing or the organising side, or both!
