What is Cornwall Motorsport Month?
Cornwall has always been famous as a sailing destination and yet it also has a thriving motorsport community with a wide variety of events taking place throughout the year.
We therefore decided it was about time to champion the diversity of motorsport in the county by showcasing some of our best events on both two and four wheels throughout the month of September.
We look forward to welcoming you to Cornwall, where the weather is still good in September, to enjoy true grassroots motorsport at its best.
This website will be updated regularly and provide you with all the information you require to enjoy a wide variety of events.
Motorsport clubs throughout the county look forward to giving you a very warm Cornish welcome in September.

New Event - Table Top Rally - Sunday 27th September 7:30pm
Free to enter and open to anyone, this Table Top Rally is set to be a fun evening to challenge would-be co-drivers, keen navigators, or simply those wishing to try their hand at navigation for the first time (without the risk of car sickness!).
It simply requires you to plot a route on a map from a set of route cards. From the comfort of your own home, the digital format of the event will see your route instructions emailed out, allowing you to plot the route and submit it back to the organisers for marking.
The event will take the form of 4 'Stages' each using a different method of route plotting.
Stage 1 will be emailed out at the start time (7.30pm, Sun 27th September), the time of receipt of the email with the answer will be your stage finish time.
Stage 2 will then be emailed out at 8.00pm on the same basis.
Stage 3 at 8.30pm
Stage 4 (Final stage) at 9.00pm.
Maximum time allowed for each stage is 25 minutes from the 'stage start' email being sent out. This means that all answers will need to be with the organisers before the issue of the next stage details.
Results will be based on total stage time (with 'Stage Maximum' of 25 minutes for incorrect answers).
Items required: OS Landranger Map 200 (Newquay, Bodmin) - An email address - Pencil - Rubber - Roamer.

Cornwall Motorsport Month 2020 IS GO!!
Whilst Cornwall is often regarded as a mecca for eager surfers, foodies and those seeking a staycation hotspot, the extreme southwestern peninsula of England is also an impressive haven for a diverse range of motorsport.
This September will see the second running of Cornwall Motorsport Month which offers the opportunity to bring together the entire county to celebrate both two and four-wheeled motorsport, as well as highlighting the opportunity for enthusiasts or casual followers to get involved in a myriad of events which are scheduled to take place during the course of the month.
First devised in 2019, Cornwall Motorsport Month was created to highlight the diverse range of motorsport events that take place in the area and underline its rich heritage in the sport, as well as leading the way in innovative events and schemes.
As well as increasing interest in the sport, the initiative was also designed to help the region bolster visitor numbers throughout September, just as the county winds down after the Summer season.
Although the Watergate Bay Speed Hillclimb is not running in 2020 due to the Coronavirus situation, there is a myriad of other events taking place, with something for any enthusiast to get stuck into, whether competing, volunteering or meeting up with likeminded folk (both virtually and in-person – socially distanced of course).
Splattered across the month, you’ll find a host of other events for petrol-heads, including Hot Rod races, Auto Solo’s, Autotests, Speed events and even a Classic Car and Motorcycle show which takes place at Tencreek Holiday Park, Looe. The show is also currently allowing spectators (at the time of writing).
Also planned is an Interclub quiz night for local motor clubs to test their sporting prowess, going head-to-head, virtually or face-to-face to ensure every motor club in the region can get involved. If there isn’t a clear winner, then each club will have the chance to turn the tide with the Interclub Karting Challenge at St Eval. The event first ran in 2019, with Motorsport UK Chairman David Richards joining in the fun.
Other events are planned and further information will be released subject to COVID-19 restrictions.
September offers the opportunity for anyone in the region to get involved with motorsport of any discipline and explore what opportunities are available within the sport. To find out more, and receive the latest information on Cornwall Motorsport Month, head to the social feeds on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
