Here is the story of the birthplace of modern British motorsport - the Seven Fifty Motor Club. Celebrating its 70th anniversary in 2009, the club was originally set up to cater for motorsport enthusiasts with 750cc cars, mainly Austin Sevens.

Since then, the 750MC has become the epicentre of British club motorsport, organising events for enthusiasts every weekend of the year, and providing entry-level racing on which many inspired designer-builders have cut their teeth, including Lotus`s Colin Chapman.
