We are often asked what “SEWC” stands for. It was borne from some friendly banter on our local car club website and the location for where we worked on our cars was labelled “South East Wight Customs”, and became SEWC for short. The name seems to have stuck, so we have kept it as we evolved from autotesting, to circuit racing the locost in the 750MC Locost Championship to now running a one-off kit car in the 750MC Sports Specials Championship and in Sports Libre Class at Sprints and Hillclimbs with the Association of Central Southern Motor Clubs (ACSMC).
A little about me…. Not a lot to say really other then I have always had a passion for motorsport and in particular circuit racing. Having never raced before, I took the plunge and got my ARDS in 2010 after doing a few trackdays, and then threw myself into Locosts, and have never looked back.
In 2018 we upgraded after a 2 year break from Locosts into the 750MC Sports Specials Championship, completing rounds at Thruxton. 2019 saw 10 races over the 14 race season culminating in a 3rd and 4th place at a very wet Snetterton 300. In 2019 we also competed in the ACSMC Speed Championship and finished 2nd overall by 1 point, having clollected 10 class wins along the way.
2020 will see another year of circuit racing with 750MC this time addidng some ballast in the SEWC SubZero to qualify and contest all 14 rounds of the Class B and overall champioships. Whilst there wont be as many sprints on our calendar as 2019, we will compete at a few sprints and hillclimbs when there aren’t race calsndar clashes.
