750 Motor Club Reveals 80th Anniversary Celebrations and Record Start to Season

Thu 16 May 2019

750 Motor Club is thrilled to reveal a record-breaking start to the 2019 circuit racing season; the 80th anniversary year since the Club’s formation in 1939. The near-200 strong entry list for April’s single-day meeting at Donington Park followed on from the busy Brands Hatch season opener; with near-capacity grids spanning the majority of formulae in attendance - something that looks set to continue with a record entry for the Club’s forthcoming Croft weekend on 1st/2nd June. 
Club Enduro continues to lead the way as the UK’s biggest championship, and the addition of a move to championship status for 2019 has allowed BMW Car Club Racing’s grids to flourish alongside the evergreen Locost, MR2, Formula Vee and Hot Hatch – the latter further bolstered by an influx of returning Mk2 Golf GTis. With a portfolio now comprising 21 formulae, the 750MC season has showcased an extremely promising start for new offerings Type R Trophy, Ma7da Locost and 116 Trophy, whilst Bikesports has grown to become the UK’s largest championship for sports-racing cars. 
Having joined 750MC for 2019 onwards and filling a space in the Club’s line-up for a cost-effective slicks & wings single seater, the F1000 championship is currently undergoing an exciting period of growth, further boosted by various 750MC members having already purchased cars to compete this season. 
New for 2019 has been the introduction of live-streaming for at least eight race days during the season; the first Donington stream offering unprecedented viewing numbers and exposure for formulae and drivers alike. Produced by Alpha Live and streamed on YouTube and across the Club’s Facebook pages; the coverage is accompanied in the 2019 Competitor Benefits package by a new Club and sponsor-backed prize giveaway to the value of nearly £10,000, whilst Club membership and almost all registration costs remain frozen. 
The Club’s official 80th Anniversary celebrations are set to take place at September’s Donington Park National meeting, where heritage members aim to display up to 80 racing and roadgoing Austin Sevens as a tribute to 750MC and UK club-level motorsport’s formative years, in a Sunday lunchtime track parade. Dubbed '80 For 80’, any Austin Seven is welcome to attend to achieve the 80-car target, and the display will take alongside the two-day meeting with a Saturday evening celebration at the Club’s home circuit.
