Have a road car? Want to have some fun in it with the safety of a closed off area? Want to find the limits of the car and your ability? Or just a good day's motorsport trying to get one over on your mate in a similar car?

The first round of the 2019 ASWMC Autosolo championship is taking place at Smeatharpe, Nr Honiton, on the 12th January. It's being organised by South Hams Motor Club and it’s a great days Motorsport! Great value, great tests and great fun! Doesn't matter if you've never done one before, just come along and have a go! Ideal for people that want to get into Motorsport and also great for anyone that just fancies a go at a new discipline. Also a massively enjoyable and rewarding event for regular Autosolo competitors. All cars are competitive within their classes, so it doesn’t matter what you drive! Come and join one of the fastest growing, most affordable and rewarding forms of motorsport in the country!


Welcome to the SHMC’s 7th running of the South Hams SOLO - An AutoSOLO run in conjunction with the club’s Test Day at Smeatharpe Airfield, we again are the first round of the ASWMC AutoSOLO championship. 4 courses are on offer, with three runs on each, and the requirement for competitors to join in the rotation of marshals, means a slick, action-packed, competition-filled day is on offer.

In 2015 a standard road car with only a handful of tweaks beat the 27 car entry to the win, proving you don’t need a specialist car to do well.

Please note due to planning restrictions on the venue, noise levels are monitored closely – to comply with these restrictions please ensure that noise is kept to an absolute minimum pre 0900 and after 1600. Please arrive/depart the venue in a quiet, controlled and respectful manner. Anyone not doing this may be excluded from the event without refund.

South Hams Motor Club have taken the opportunity to continue their offer for cars that are double driven - if you were to enter two drivers for the same car and share the entry costs between the two drivers it would work out at £20 each!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch – my details are in the regs. I look forward to receiving your entry.

Tom Moore - Clerk of the Course (2018)
