The Vintage Sports-Car Club or VSCC is a British motor racing club. Established "towards the end of 1934"  by Tim Carson and Tom Rolt to promote the pastime of motoring, the VSCC was first started in order to allow the "not so rich" to enjoy historic motoring. General guidelines made the club principally for cars built before 1931. This guideline generally remains in force although cars built before the Second World War but conforming to standards set in 1931 are also allowed.
As well as social events the club, which has a membership of some 7,500, organises a range of motoring competitions such as driving tests, hill climbs, races, road rallies and sprints. Their most famous race is held at Silverstone Circuit in April of every year.
