TDMC is the only motor club in the North East of England with its own Clubhouse and lounge. Based near Newcastle upon Tyne in the county Tyne & Wear. We are open at 8.30pm every Monday evening.
We are always keen to see new members at the clubhouse, where there are activities such as table top rallies, quizzes, videos, event reports, Play Station and Scalextric championships. We are also open on Thursday nights which are reserved for those interested in 2-wheeled motorsport, principally trials and endurance events.
TDMC members are active in many forms of motorsport, from Rallying and Autocross, to motorcycle trials and karting. We have members involved in Rallycross and Historic rallying too – which makes this club a very versatile one. There are members competing at every level, from raw beginners competing for the first time, to International competitors, as well as plenty of members who come along to simply help out or just watch – i.e. the backbone of the sport.
The club was formed in 1948 as Tynemouth & District Motor club and was affiliated to the Auto cycle Union. By the late 1950s it was recognised by the R.A.C and in 1976, Tynemouth & District Motor Sports Club was formed, in order to handle the promotion of motorsport. The club is an active participant of the Association of North East and Cumbrian Car Clubs, Association of Northern Car Clubs, Tyneside Motor Sports Group and the North East centre Auto Cycle Union.
