Dukeries Motor Club is based in Nottinghamshire and meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month at the Mansfield Rugby Club, Eakring Road, Mansfield, NG18 3EW. (OS Map 120, Ref 574.611)
The club was formed in 1954 with the aim of ‘promoting, encouraging and organising motor sport’. It took its name from the area of North Nottinghamshire known as ‘The Dukeries’ which was once home to five Dukes. It is one of the region’s leading motor sport clubs with an excellent reputation for organising events. In the past the club has organised up to six rallies each year but efforts nowadays are concentrated on three popular events; the Dukeries Rally, the Donington Rally and the Flying Fortress Stages.
Many Dukeries members are active competitors and their efforts over the years have meant that the club has won both the East Midlands and the North East Midlands Rally Championships on many occasions. The club runs its own popular rally championship with end of season trophies and cash prizes.
Dukeries members also assist other motor clubs by marshalling on a wide range of motor sport events throughout the year.
The club is affiliated to Motorsport UK (formally the MSA) which is the governing body of motor sport in the UK and is a member of five Regional Motor Sport Associations.
If you are interested in joining Dukeries Motor Club annual membership is £15.
