Lewis Car Club has been in existence since 1973 with the purpose of promoting motorsport and motoring in general in the Western Isles. The Club organises the prestigious Rally Hebrides, first staged in 2008. The rally has grown in size in terms of stage miles and entrants. Rally Hebrides 2011 raised £10,674 for Macmillan Cancer Support (Western Isles) and we are delighted that Macmillan have agreed to work alongside us for Rally Hebrides 2012 The first quarter mile drag race of 2012 took place on June 9th, with all the money raised going to the ‘CRY’ charity, and the second race took place on 21st July – with all money raised going to local charities. Lewis Car Club also run an annual Auto-solo and Auto-test Championship with regular events, bringing affordable Motorsport to the Western Isles. For 2012 we have manage to secure local event sponsorship for these championships. This site will hopefully be updated regularly with details about Lewis Car Club Events, Rally Hebrides, the LCC Auto-solo Championship and Quarter Mile Drag Races. Early Club events included an Autocross Championship on Barvas Machair, Hillclimbs at Bennadrove and Autotests at Stornoway Airport, Marybank and Arnish. In the early 1990’s, Lewis Car Club organised a number of Navigational Road Rallies and loose surface Auto-tests at its newly acquired Lochs Road gravel circuit. In 1999, the Club, in partnership with the Stornoway Trust, Comhairle nan Eilean Siar and Bardon Hebrides, developed its Lochs Road site. The site was let out to a newly formed company who worked to develop Lewis Karting Center – a premier 650m by 6m outdoor karting circuit with ancillary driver training facilities. In 2001, Lewis Car Club was incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee and Registered Scottish Charity. Lewis Car Club is now very active, organizing the prestigious Rally Hebrides – a 30 car ultimate Stage Rally – in August each year along with a fiercely contested Auto-solo Championship and an annual Quarter Mile Drag Race series. Proceeds from these events go to local Charities.
