WELCOME TO CHELTENHAM MOTOR CLUB
Founded in 1906, we are one of the oldest active Motor Clubs in the UK and one of only a handful to own its own Clubhouse.
If you are interested in Motoring or Motorsport then we can offer you all the assistance or advice you need to become involved yourself.
Our main events are Stage Rallies – “Get it Sideways Stages Rally” Our own Single Venue Stage Rally. “Three Shires Stages” Closed Road Stage Rally. “Cotswold Stages” Joint run Single Venue Stage Rally.
Throughout the year we also run a number of low budget events that are an ideal introduction to Motorsport. These events are normally part of our “Winter Series” or “Summer Series” – 12 Car Navigational rallies, autotests, treasure hunt’s & motor gymkhana’a. We have a good group of motorsport marshals, who regularly go out on events to help out other Clubs, with general marshalling, radio crews, timing teams & event officials. We also attend local shows and fate’s with a display of vehicles at local shows.
“Torque Motors” is a dedicated evening of classroom style navigational teach-in’s, quiz’s or table-top rallies and sometimes guest speakers. We also run a club fantasy “Fantasy F1” competition, just a bit of fun between our members.

The Clubhouse and Bar is open every evening. The main social nights are Friday & Saturday. Many local people have joined the Club as Associate members, they enjoy the range of Real Ales, the atmosphere and the cheaper prices. (Anyone visiting the Club on more than 3 occasions will be asked to join as an Associate member). Our big social event of the year is the Wheel Ale Festival.
CAMRA National Club of the Year 2014, 2017 & 2020. We also stock real cider and a range of wines. CAMRA members welcome. We have our own Darts and Pool teams in the Cheltenham Leagues. Other local groups meet at the Club and we have a couple of rooms that we can make available for meetings (during regular opening hours).
The Magic Bus outings visit local pubs and breweries, usually of an evening once a month during the summer months & occasionally longer trips on a Saturday. Our Charabanc trips, only once or twice a year, are normally an all day affair, out to a local place of interest, ending the day with a meal and a beer. Both are very popular – book early to avoid disappointment.
Due to COVID restrictions, for the time being the Clubhouse & bar is closed.
