ABOUT US

 
   

The Club

The club was founded some time before we affiliated to the ACU in February 1928. The club has been involved in all branches of motorcycle sport. Back in the 1930s, a Sidcup member spotted a grass valley at West Kingsdown and suggested to the Sidcup Club Committee that we ask the landowner if the club could run a grass track there. He agreed, and for many years Sidcup, then other local clubs held Centre and National grass tracks which attracted hundreds of spectators. Around the 1950's, the then landowner decided to put tarmac on the grass track circuit, and change the sport to road racing.  The Brands Hatch road race circuit was born and evolved into the international venue it is today. Some Sidcup members turned to Road Racing, going on to win trophies in the Isle of Man TT, the best known being Harold Daniell and Jock West.

Today we run Trials, Enduros, Long Distance Trials, Hare and Hounds and Motocross. The club purchased its track - Canada Heights - in the mid 1980s and has been improving facilities ever since.  The biggest spectator event is in the early part of the year and is a round of the Maxxis British Motocross Championship and huge crowds (10,000+) pack the circuit to watch. From 1999-2001 the British round of the Sidecarcross Grand Prix was also held here.

The Sidcup & District Motor Cycle Club is a non-profit making organisation that runs motorcycle events for Auto Cycle Union (ACU) members. The Club is affiliated to the Auto Cycle Union via ACU South Eastern (previously known as the South Eastern Centre).  The Club is also a member of: - The South Eastern Centre Enduro Combine, The South Eastern Centre Motocross Combine, and The South Eastern Centre Trials Combine, and the North Kent Trials Combine.

Canada Heights

Since 1952 Sidcup MCC has been using the Canada Heights venue for Motocross, Trials, Enduros, Hare & Hounds. In 2014, we introduced a "Bike Night" on a summer Friday evening, for anyone with a motorcycle (on or off road) to show it off.  Everyone with an interest in motorcycles are welcome to spend a social evening looking at the machinery and chatting Bikes!.  For more information about our track click here.
