Brighton & Hove Motor Club

In consultation with Brighton Councils Outdoor Events team it has been decided that due to the current government guidelines on Covid-19 it will not be possible for the 2020 Frosts Brighton National Speed Trials to go ahead.


The Outdoor Events team are keen to have all events back on Madeira Drive in 2021 and as such we have requested Saturday 4th September for the 2021 Speed Trials.


We will aim for a bigger and better event in 2021 and that this will be a highly enjoyable event for everyone who takes part or comes along to view this great event.


The BHMC is best known as the organiser of the world-famous Frosts Brighton Speed Trials. We started in 1905 so have been going over 100 years - this makes it the longest-running motorsport event in the world!

An entertaining day-out for all the family, it showcases a wide range of cars and motorbikes racing over a quarter of a mile, along Brighton's historic beachfront, Madeira Drive.

The Club also runs other activities during the year including:

About the club

Since the early 1920's we were known as the Brighton and Hove Motor Cycle and Light Car Club. The Motor Cycle interests were split off in 1932 and the Brighton and Hove Motor Club came into being.

We moved into the arches under Dukes Mound on the seafront at Brighton in 1948 where we have remained ever since.

Our Committee, Bar and Snooker rooms are open to club members every Wednesday from 8pm until 11pm. Non-members - feel free to come down and say hello, and bring your interesting car to break the ice!
