Club History


The club also built up a very successful display team. A report published in ‘Motorcycling’ wrote ‘It was the best amateur display team they had seen’.

DDMCC was a pretty lively club in those days with much enthusiasm from the membership to make the club as interesting as possible. Evening events included film shows, talks and all the usual club ride outs etc. There was always a big celebration on Guy Fawkes Night; fish and chips, fireworks and a massive bonfire topped up with old engine oil and used rubber tyres from the garage where I worked. This was held on the beach near the ‘Royal Hotel’ until complaints from the local people stopped it.

After a few years ‘Light Car’ was added to the club name... I don’t really know the reason for this because as I recall, there was only one member with a car and no bike. Those who had no transport of their own could always get a lift on somebody’s pillion.
