grafton sporting car club

since 1955

The Grafton Sporting Car Club had its beginning in 1955 on a section of unsealed road climbing a steep hill on the outskirts of South Grafton. A group of twelve motoring enthusiasts with no experience of motor sport conducted a very basic hillclimb using a flag to signal the start and a stopwatch at the finish for timing. This event on a Sunday afternoon began the movement which would lead to the formation of a Sporing Car Club in Grafton on 28 June 1955.

So the Grafton Sporting Car Club began at a hillclimb 59 years ago and through its history the Club has established and enhanced its reputation for its presentation of outstanding hillclimbs from Club level events to State and National Championships.

From a humble beginning from the conduct of hillclimbs and quarter mile sprints on public roads, the Club has developed to the present day of ownership of a 67 hectare property at Mountainview featuring a 968 metre challenging hillclimb incorporating a 560 metre sprint kart circuit. The Club has a well deserved and long standing reputation for its organisation of hillclimb and sprint kart events. The facilities for competitors are outstanding including canteen services and overnight camping.

Our Club extends a warm welcome to all motor sport competitors to enjoy the facilities and surrounds of the Mountainview Motor Sport Complex while challenging your driving skills during a great day of competition.
