Farnborough 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, Cove, Farnborough, GU14 9RG.
