S&CMC motorsport events include the co-organisation of the Abingdon CAR-nival, a rally between Christmas and New-Year, and for many years, the Tempest Stages.

Team Tempest is the name under which Sutton and Cheam Members compete and help organise events.

  • Abingdon Sprint – Officials Meeting and Training 26th Feb

    SCMC and Craven are running the Abingdon Long Course Sprint on the 9th April. On Sunday 26th Feb, the organising team met to run through the plan, roles and responsibilities as well as to go through some scenario training. One of the key elements of this event is that each role has a deputy or trainee. Sunday helped to train those as they learn the roles. Thanks goes to everyone for turning out on a Sunday and to Barry for organising 16 different scenarios covering everything from drivers turning up without licences to what to do when a car leaves the track.

  • New Abingdon Long Course Sprint – 9th April 2016

  • The 20th Abingdon CAR-nival – 4th / 5th June

    The 20th, yes, 20th, Abingdon CAR-nival weekend took place on the 4th and 5th June this year. Over the past 19 years the event has raised over £250,000 for charitable causes, including the local charity ‘Friends of Stowford House‘ and the Army Benevolent Fund. This year we are also supporting needs even closer to home, The Dalton Barracks Soldiers Social Welfare Fund.

    140 sprinters and 100 rally cars competed in the Abingdon Car-nival on the 4th and 5th June.  The weather could not have been better, with light cloud on Saturday and bright, spectator-singeing sunshine all day Sunday. Rally results were live on-line and the complete set of results for the Autosolo, double-Sprint and Rally are over on the dedicated web site at

    Many thanks to all those who took part, especially for keeping mostly to the black stuff, allowing the event to run smoothly. A very special thanks to the huge team of volunteers that made it all possible.
