CLUB HISTORY

The West Cork Motorcycle Club was formed in 1997 and has gone from strength to strength.

The club has over one hundred members annually, with members joining from throughout Cork County along with many other counties in Ireland. 

 

The aim of our club is to promote motorcycling in the region. Annually we run Vintage events for older machines, Speed events, off road events, Charity events and many Social events.

WCMCC organises Vintage runs throughout the year.  The speed events which the club hosts are very special comprising of our annual Halfway Drag Race, Dunderrow & Twohig's Hill Hillclimb's. At present our Drag Race is the only one to be held on a closed off section of public road in Europe. 

Some club members’, who compete in short circuit racing both here and in the UK, can be seen in action at both hill climbs and drag races.

 

Fund raising is also a big part of our club. We raise money for local charities while we are out for our Sunday spin. We hold charity  runs throughout the year and a toy run at Christmas which supports CoAction Dunmanway, Skibbereen & Clonakilty which is always well supported and the money is very welcome by the charities.

 

Add to all this, Fun runs, social gatherings, club members evenings and meetings and you have a very unique club. This club is the only one that incorporates all aspects of motorcycling and caters for bikes and bikers of types and ages!!!

 

In the past we have run Grasstrack events including a championship round on the Sunday of the August Bank Holiday weekend. The event gives you a chance to see bikes up close and is a great day for all the family. This type of event is ideal for youth members starting out on their first off road bike. Both girls and boys from age five or six upwards compete.
