The primary objective of SOUTH WEST MOTOR SPORT is to promote the preservation of our cars in a racing format which emphasizes driver safety and etiquette.The sport is intended to provide a format for friendly wheel to wheel competition with vehicles prepared faithfully to their era. All racing is dangerous, and only the proper attitude of the driver and the careful preparation of cars will diminish the danger and enhance our appreciation of the sport.
SouthWest MotorSport , like other race organizations, has a rigorous licensing process. For the safety of all of its members, all SouthWest MotorSport drivers must have a current SouthWest MotorSport Competition License, student logbook or VMC license to participate in our race events. A current medical form must be on file with the club. The Chief Driving Instructor is responsible for conducting SouthWest MotorSport Driver’s Schools and ‘signing off’ on full completion for a SouthWest MotorSport license.
To obtain a competition license, a driver must submit an application to the Licensing Registrar and complete all the necessary requirements. These requirements are that a new driver must successfully complete a SouthWest MotorSport or other approved school and participate in at least two additional weekend events under the supervision and observation of an assigned driving instructor. The successful completion of an approved driving school may serve as a substitute for our school, but observation is still required. Driver’s school is required for previously licensed drivers who have not driven in the last 24 months.
