Welcome to the website of Solway Car Club

Welcome to the website of Solway Car Club - 2014 MSA Club of the Year - for motor sport enthusiasts young and old.

Throughout the year the Club organises autotests (Tar & Grass) and 12 Car navigational rallies, as well as two Stage Rallies of National B status (requiring a Motorsport UK competition licence to compete), the www.usedcarparts.co.uk Solway Coast Rally and the Armstrong Galloway Hills Rally.

We have championships for Junior and Senior members, as well as the hotly-contested Club Championship, and we marshal on many events too. We also host various games/quiz nights, and for the sake of variety, sometimes a pit-stop challenge and a treasure hunt!

Anyone is welcome to join us at Solway Car Club; whether you wish to compete in our Club events, join us to Marshal, or just be a Member – you can sign up here.

You can now take your own garments to ‘Banks and Braes’ in Kirkcudbright, where the SCC logo has already been digitised, and items can be embroidered for a modest cost.

Our Rallies and Events

Solway Coast Rally

The Club Championship is contested over 15-20 events throughout the year. The calendar is made up of Grass & Tarmac Autotests and 12 Car Rallies, with the winner taking away the coveted ‘Ron Smith Trophy’, named in honour of our founding President.

Solway Coast Rally

The Solway Coast Rally was formed in 1980, initially taking place on farm lanes and estate roads, and latterly on the MOD Range at Dundrennan. The event has been sponsored by the Stewart family of Euroroute Group (formerly DA Autoparts) since it began.

Galloway Hills Rally

The Galloway Hills Rally is our gravel rally, which is run in collaboration with our neighbours Machars and East Ayrshire Car Clubs. The event has been running since 1974, and has been sponsored by The Armstrong Group since 2000.

Solway Coast Targa Rally

We have recently ventured into the TARGA world, and will host a round of the NESCRO Championship in Kirkcudbrightshire in the Autumn.
