We hope you have all kept safe and well in what can only be described as some very strange times. 

We are writing to you today as 2021 marks the 75th anniversary of the founding of North Devon Motor Club and the 50th anniversary of the club owning our field at Sugworthy. 

We want to commemorate both of these important anniversaries within the club with you, our motor club member, as well as friends and family of North Devon Motor Club.

In light of this we are holding a celebration at the club's field at Sugworthy on Saturday 7th August 2021. This is to include:

  • a celebration tour/drive to the event, visiting places of significance to the club over the last 75 years.

  • an awards afternoon, some fun and some serious!

  • catering on the Saturday evening

  • a licenced bar on the Saturday evening

  • a few motorsport themed challenges.

We are also offering camping from Friday 6th August until Sunday 8th August at the field. Toilets are on site, dogs are permitted but must be kept on leads due to sheep in the neighboring field and you must bring your own drinking water as there is none on site.

Tickets for this event will be available to purchase at a later date (under 18's free),  however we would greatly appreciate an email or message of interest so that we have an idea of numbers for our caterer. This is a family and friends of NDMC event so please feel free to invite anyone you think may want to come to this event, as well as any past members of the club who may also be interested in this event, please feel free to let them know! It would be great to see some old faces. It's a great opportunity to tell all your motoring stories, we know there are a few!

We hope to see as many of you at this celebration as possible, especially with recent times, it will be great to be together again.

Please let us know if this event is of interest to you by sending an email to Megan (, with a rough idea of how many in your party. All details will also be posted on the clubs website ( and our Facebook page - North Devon Motor Club (Official). More information regarding the celebration as well as tickets will be sent out in the coming weeks. 

7th August 2021, the tour will start from The Old Station House at Blackmoor Gate.

The planned starting time is 2.00pm but we are booked in to the Inn from 12.00 mid-day for lunch if you wish, this can be from a full meal or just a snack but please book for any refreshments direct and not through the club. Infomation is included in the event regulations available below.

Due to the uncertainty regarding the length of time restrictions in this latest Covid-19 lockdown will be in place the Committee of North Devon Motor Club have agreed to postpone the Stu Wood Targa scheduled for the 14th March at Chivenor. The organising team would like to thank all those who had already agreed to help with the event and the numerous offers of support for the event.

At the moment it is not possible to set a new date for the event, but the organisers hope that as the situation improves a suitable date can be set.

It is disappointing that this is the second time the event has been abandoned; last year, with just 5 days to go before the first lockdown we had to cancel. This latest postponement does not mean we won’t have anything to look forward to - the ‘Ilfracombe Targa’, due to take place in early September, again at Chivenor, will be a round of the new BTRDA Targa Championship as well as the ASWMC and Cotswold MotorSport Group Targa Championships and is bound to attract competitors from far afield.

PCAT's - New Venues!

Following a recent committee meeting one of the topics of conversation that came up was PCATS. NDMC as a motor club wants to facilitate all aspects of motorsport that is feasibly possible and for a long time Kevin Down has carried the flag as main organiser as well as many other flags for the club. But recently we have been lucky to gain the interests of Kevin and Tom Upton who have put a lot of effort into putting on a couple of events which have been greatly received by those who participated, but sadly these events have not had the entries they duly deserve. So at the committee it was also mentioned to run a PCAT championship we need to have a mixture of loose and hard surface events, the hard surface events being a potential tripping point and are currently struggling to find some suitable venues to use so as a bit of a plea if anyone knows of a potential venue to please feel free to contact Kevin Down or Tom Upton who's email details will be listed below. Both Kevin and Tom will welcome any enquiries on potential entries, willing marshals or even if anyone has any questions on a PCAT I.e. how they run, car eligibility entry cost etc. Kevin's email is and Tom's email is
