Witley & District Motor Cycle Club has a long, rich history – and they are now thrilled to report the completion of 100 years of motorcycle sport in the counties of Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire. 

Only a handful of motorcycle clubs still functioning in the UK can claim to be as old as, or older than, Witley MCC. Based in the Guildford area, the club has been at the forefront in the development of off-road motorcycle sport since 1924. They are proud to be marking their Centenary this year, and invite you to join them in celebrating this milestone as we look back on the achievements of the club and its members and forward to what will be an exciting and possibly challenging future. 

 Witley has long-established success in running popular off-road sporting events. Enduro and observed trials have been our main areas of activity in recent times, though their gifted riders compete and have competed not only in these but also in grass-track, long-track, motocross and other disciplines over the years.

From humble beginnings, Witley has become one of the leading names in South-East England and further afield. The club’s enviable record in representing the nation in International Six Days Enduro competitions is a particular focus. The competitive ethos of the club is complemented by an enthusiastic road riding section, and they also run several popular social events each year.

The committee would like to extend a massive ‘Thank You’ to all of members and supporters, past and present, whose enthusiasm and expertise have been such a vital part of our club’s legacy.

Here’s to another 100 years of motorcycle sport!
