'Motorsport in your everyday road car'

In 2022 StreetCar was launched to encourage more people to get behind the wheel and enjoy the sport; overturning the age-old perception that it is out of reach for most people.

StreetCar, showcases the existing vibrant grassroots motorsport scene, and demonstrate that the sport is affordable, fun and accessible whilst acting as the enabler to drive participation in the club community.

A wide range of low-cost ‘grassroots’ disciplines are available for new and existing members of the community, comprising 12 StreetCar disciplines that provide a wide variety of format and challenge.

Segmented into

Autotest, Trials & Cross Country and Rally, the disciplines are:

  • Autotest, AutoSOLO and Production Car Autotest

  • Trials and untimed Cross Country events

  • Rally including Touring Assemblies, Treasure Hunts, Navigational Scatter, Navigational Rally, Road and Historic Rally, 12 Car Rally and Targa Rally

All 12 disciplines can be participated in with a standard unmodified road car without special safety kit and to drive only a free Motorsport UK RS Clubman licence is required.
