About Us

A Club Offering Members A Wide Variety Of Motorsport Activities

The club was formed in April 2018 after a meeting of motorsport enthusiasts who wished to see a more competition based motorsport in the Tweed Shire. Since then our members have participated in motorkanas, navigation runs, social events, go karts, hill climbs, super sprints and the Challenge Bathurst series. Our club works closely with other car clubs, including the Gold Coast Tweed Motorsport Club and the Z Car Club Qld to provide a varied motorsport calendar throughout the year.

From The General Secretary

Robert Learmonth is a recipient of the 2021 Motorsport Sport Australia NSW Service Award.

Hi I’m Rob Learmonth currently the Competition Secretary of the Murwillumbah Sporting Car Club (MSCC). In terms of background just on three years ago a group of like minded individuals, old petrol heads, drawn from a variety of interests identified a need for a club dedicated to Motorsport within the Tweed Shire. Hence the Murwillumbah Sporting Car Club came into existence. Our weekends were our own again.

One of our major goals, besides supporting regional and State motorsport through competition and supplying officials identified a need to upskill young drivers, especially at the learner and P plate level. The region has a high fatality and accident rate amongst this age group.

Our Young Driver Program, although in its infancy, has had real commitment shown from Murwillumbah businesses, the wider community, State and Federal governments and local secondary schools.

Our training program is staffed by qualified volunteers from our club and local secondary school teaching staff. It provides the opportunity for participants to become familiar with their vehicle from a technical aspect, learn advanced driver techniques including skid pan handling and to participate in Motorkhanas and entry level motorsport

The Club has now over 40 members. With over $30,000 in State, Federal and local grants, targetted to support the Young Driver Program. The Club is well placed in meeting its future goals.

The MSCC is closely affiliated with Motor Sport Australia in the co-ordination of all its activities. At the moment we are stiving to build up a core of qualified motorsport officials for local and regional events

Personally I have been involved in motorsport at all levels over the past fifty years as a driver, club official and passionate follower of the sport. This has included the NSW Alfa Romeo Owners Club, the Z Car Club QSLD and officiate as a scrutineer at events including the 12Hour, 6 Hour, Challenge Bathurst at Mount Panorama and Morgan Park.

I am greatly humbled by this award as my achievements have been the product of a team effort thoughout my involvement over the years in our sport.

Above all the award is another way to celebrate the greatest feature of our sport the spirit of camaraderie of all those involved.
