About DDMC

Club History

In September 1922 Bath and West of England motor club organised a hill climbing and motor reliability trial in the Devizes area. Entry was open to all types of wheeled vehicles. The event had a large entry of cars from the Devizes locality.

The following was such that in January 1924, Devizes formed its own motor club ‘Devizes & District Motor Club’

In 1933 it was decided to amalgamate with other local clubs and become West Wilts Motor Club. This affiliation changed the competitive base back to motorcycles and away from motor cars.

20 years was to pass, until the year 1952 for DDMC remerge as a motor car club, the very format that it continues to this day.

In 1974 the club reluctantly resigned its ‘renegade status’ to become an RAC affiliated motor club.
