Now that scores are being dropped things are getting a little complicated, so please let us know as soon as possible if you find any errors or missing times.

Please also check that if you qualify for the Classic Championship your results have been included.

It would help greatly if you declare to event organisers that you are registered in the Liverpool Motor Club Speed Championship as it makes it easier to find you. If the event is also an ANWCC or SD34 round,  don’t forget to declare that you are a member of  LMC as well as any other club you are a member of because the club will then receive points in the ANWCC &/or SD34 Club Championships.

Sorry for the delay whilst we’ve been waiting for our permit from MSUK, but at last, you can now enter the 2022 Liverpool Motor Club Speed Championship.

To enter, just click HERE for the regs & our secure online entry system.

As a member of Liverpool Motor Club, you could increase your chance of winning an award by also entering the SD34 Sprint & Hillclimb Championship and/or the ANWCC Speed Championship too. Most of the qualifying events overlap, so you could do well in any of the Championships without entering any extra events.

The results of the 2021 Liverpool Motor Club Speed Championship are now declared final.

You can view the score chart and the final results by selecting the following links:

2021 Speed Championship Final Results

Congratulations go to our winners:-

Division 1:
1st – Nigel fox
2nd – Matt Bramall
3rd – Geoff Ward

Division 2:
1st – Ian Johnson
2nd – Phil Howarth
3rd – Graham Kearsley

It’s certainly been a closely fought championship this year and we are so pleased to see so many competitors out and about after the cancellation of last year’s championship due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Thank you to everyone who took part.

Awards
After a great deal of deliberation, we have reluctantly decided not to hold an annual dinner and awards presentation this time. Covid-19 hasn’t gone away and the advancing age of many of our competitors, coupled with the increasing rate of infections, has been taken into account and we don’t feel it is appropriate to hold a dinner whilst the risk of infection is still so high. We shall arrange to send trophies to the winners in due course. We hope you appreciate why we have reached this decision.

Next Year
We’re already planning for next year – we hope you’ll be joining us for another exciting year of speed events in 2022.

Championship Coordinator – volunteer found!
We wish to give particular thanks to Sean Robertson who is now stepping down from the role of Championship Coordinator for personal reasons. He took on the role from Ron Hunt just as Covid-19 struck and has done a  wonderful job over the past 2 seasons, one year of which was lost of course.

We are pleased to welcome Ryan Smith who has volunteered to take on the role of Championship Coordinator for 2022. Ryan isn’t a competitor although he has taken part in our track days and is keen to help keep the Championship running. Ryan will be in touch with all previous contenders early in the New Year.

Best wishes, and stay safe

Championship News – updates to calendar

Anglesey Sprints, 29th & 30th May – Cancelled

Longton DMC has announced that due to the Covid-19 restrictions imposed by the Welsh Assembly not having been relaxed sufficiently, it will not be possible to run the Anglesey Sprint weekend on 29th & 30th May. This means we have lost rounds 5 & 6 of the LMC Speed Championship.

There does not appear to be any possibility of finding replacement events so the Championship will now consist of 21 rounds. Let’s all hope that the remaining events can be run as intended.

Anglesey Sprints, 1st & 2nd May – Cancelled

MGCC informs us that it has cancelled the 1st and 2nd May Anglesey Sprints because the Welsh Government “road map” published 19/3/2021 gives no hope of sufficient relaxing of rules by then. This means we have lost rounds 2 & 3 of the LMC Speed Championship.
We are negotiating for replacement round(s)  and will announce any changes here.


Update: 23/3/21 – Events added to Calendar:

29th August: Harewood Hillclimb : BARC
30th  August: Olivers Mount Hillclimb: Longton

Events are filling up!

It appears that competitors can’t wait to get their entries in for this year’s sprints and hillclimbs!

In the first 3 weeks, Liverpool MC received over 150 entries for its Aintree and Barbon events.

Longton is reporting similar interest with over 50% of the capacity of its May Blyton weekend being booked in the first 24 hours.

So, if there’s an event in which you particularly want to take part, don’t be disappointed, get your entry in without delay!

2020 LMC Speed Championship

Announcement: 19/6/2020 by Sean Robertson, LMC Championship Coordinator

18 of the 24 rounds of the LMC Speed Championship have now been cancelled due to Covid-19. As a result, it simply isn’t viable to continue the Championship this year. We feel we have no option but to postpone the entire Championship until 2021 when we hope events will resume.

I am contacting all registered contenders to advise that it is my intention to carry forward your registration to the 2021 Championship, but if that is not convenient to you please let me know and I will arrange for your entry fee to be refunded.

If you are content to carry forward your registration to next year you do not need to do anything. Once the 2021 Regulations are confirmed in the new year, I will be in touch to ensure your contact details, car details and class entry are still correct.

At the present time, the following events remain scheduled, so hopefully, despite not being part of a Championship, we may yet see some wheels turning this year.

09-Aug Curborough Sprint Mid Cheshire MC
30-Aug Harewood Hillclimb BARC Yorks
05-Sep Aintree Sprint Liverpool
06-Sep Three Sisters Sprint Longton
03-Oct Anglesey Sprint Longton
04-Oct Anglesey Sprint Longton

Once again, my sincere apologies for having to relay more bad news to add to the long list of disappointments this year has brought to all of us.

Stay safe and well and I hope to see you soon.

Sean Robertson, 19/6/2020

UPDATE: 29/7/2020:

The following events have also been cancelled

9 Aug – Curborough Sprint – Mid-Cheshire
6 Sep – Three Sisters Sprint – Longton
3 Oct – Anglesey Sprint – Longton
4 Oct – Anglesey Sprint – Longton
