The Machars of Galloway is one of the most southerly peninsula on the rugged coastline of South West Scotland. Situated deep within 'Dumfries and Galloway' the land varies from rich pastures in the lowlands, to the rolling hills and peaks to the North East skirted by the great Galloway Forest where you will find some of the fastest-flowing and most revered stages such as Glentrool and Black Loch.
The area has long had a rich heritage of motor sport beginning mainly with motorbikes and developing to rally-cars, producing some of Scotland, and the UK's, finest drivers. During more than sixty years of itsí existence, Machars Car Club has been serving these motorsport needs by providing the organisation, venues and backing in a highly competitive but team spirited environment. This combination has produced the ethos of Machars whose constant adaptability and encouragement to young members has seen it thrive since 1950. Recent developments have included the exciting off road pursuits of 'Competitive Safaris' where members have moved from the points based vertically challenging trials to the longer, faster timed tracks.
Aided by the scope of the countryside in Galloway with steep climbs and forest tracks Machars Car Club will continue to provide for its members competition, sport and fun in a sociable environment. Thanks go to all those who put in the considerable commitment of time and expense to make the Club function...
Founded in 1950, Machars Car Club caters for a wide variety of motor sport.
