As the photograph above (taken by Rob McDonald) shows, ten pioneering competitors competed in the historic first round of the National Historic Speed Club Championship on Sunday at Shelsley Walsh. Simon Firth Bernard in his Sunbeam Alpine was unable to join us having been let down by his engine builder. As you will see from the Scoreboard below, Class 1A is already shaping up to be a hard fought battle between the Minis, whilst the PB Cup is likely to throw up some variable results as we move from venue to venue.

Congratulations to Fyrth Crosse in his Dempster Ensign who was fastest overall on the day, with David Rose second fastest in his Elan followed by Steve Hill in his Lotus Seven. The picture below is of David receiving his from Annie Goodyear of the Midland Automobile Club.


Next round is at Goodwood on the 4th May.

“Back on the calendar for the first time in many years, Sheffield & Hallamshire MC’s sprint at Mallory Park on Sunday 24th March proved to be a big success. Whilst this was not a round of the NHSC Championship our chairman, Steve Akers, took the opportunity to explore what we can expect when we go there for Round 4 on the 24th June. Steve reports as follows, “What a fantastic circuit and a brilliant venue for a sprint. Very fast, with one or two tricky exits from corners make it quite challenging, but very satisfying if you put together a good run (I didn’t!). The massive tarmac paddock is a real plus and the catering is well up to scratch. SHMC did a great job running the event and I am sure June’s event will be even better. Some in car footage will be loaded up to our YouTube channel shortly to give you an idea of the way round and we will of course alert NHSC competitors when entries for June open in due course.”

LATEST NEWS UPDATE – 21TH February 2024


Please be aware that GOODWOOD opens for entries at 8am on FRIDAY 23RD FEBRUARY. This event sells out very, very quickly (within 2 hrs previously!). So if you want to enter then be on your device as close to 8am as possible. The event is organised by Brighton & Hove Motor Club. The entry form does not show us as a separate class so enter the class that fits your car. If we have five entries or more they will create one for us when it comes to the final instructions and paddock layout. There are no unusual requests on the form. .

LATEST NEWS UPDATE – 13TH February 2024


Aintree – Round 10 of our championship on 31st August is now open for entries. We now have our own separate class, Class 17

Mallory Park on the 24th March is also now open for entries. Please note: this is not part of our championship. Our Mallory Park round is on 23rd June and is not yet open for entry. However, members are encouraged to use this as an early season “warm up” event and a chance to practice at a venue that has not been available for a number of years. We are not listed as an invited club, but the Welsh Association of Motor Clubs is and as this is our regional association NHSC members are therefore eligible to enter.

LATEST NEWS UPDATE – 9TH February 2024


National Historic Speed Club is pleased and indeed honored to announce the appointment of three new Honorary members, Don Wales, Philip Porter and Christopher Tate.

Don is the grandson of Sir Malcolm Campbell MBE and the nephew of Donald Campbell CBE and himself holds a World Land Speed Record, two American National Records, a Guinness World record for the fastest lawn mower and has broken 8 UK Land Speed Records with Bluebird Electric.

Philip is best known for having created Porter Press International, which is now one of the world's leading motoring publishers. Less well known perhaps is that he competed in hillclimbs and sprints while still at school, winning 10 of his 12 events in 1970 in his full-race Sprite.

Christopher is a Council Member of MSUK and current Chair of the Safety Committee. He has served in a number of capacities over many years and has always had particular interest in Historic motorsport.

Ian Hunt will be interviewed about the formation of the Club and its Speed Championship live on stage at Race Retro at 12-45pm on Friday 23rd February. NHSC will also have one of our championship cars exhibited on the Shelsley Walsh stand at the show.

Another of our venues opens for entries on Monday 12th February at 10am.

Prescott - Round 12 on 6th October

The Prescott booking system requires you to “register” as taking part in the NHSC Championship before you can book your entry. It might be best to do this before Monday if you can as it requires entry of a few details concerning car, etc, if you haven’t registered at Prescott before.
