The British Racing and Sports Car Club (BRSCC) is one of the major organisers of motorsport events in the United Kingdom.

History[edit]

The 500 Club, as it was then known, was founded in 1946. [1] The club promoted racing in 500 c.c. single-seater racing cars, later known as Formula Three. Motor Sport reported in 1947: "The 500 Club's Patron is Earl Howe, its President S.C.H. Davis, and its Vice-Presidents Messrs. Findon, Mays and Pomeroy-which speaks for itself. A stall will be occupied by the Club at the next Shelsley Walsh hill-climb, and its magazine "Iota" will be on sale there." [2] The name was subsequently changed to The Half Litre Club on becoming a limited liability Company. [1]

In 1954 Motor Sport reported: "The Half-Litre C.C. is contemplating changing its name to the British Racing and Sports-Car Club, in view of changed activities." [3]

In 1966 the BRSCC staged the seventh Racing Car Show, 19–29 January, at Olympia West Hall, London. [4] By this time the club magazine was called Motor Racing. [1]
