Welcome to Leewood Motor Club
We are a family friendly motor club and the only Autograss club in the Manchester area. If you are interested in joining us as a racer or a social member come along to our monthly meeting(very informal) at the White Lion in Heywood (OL10 4NS). These are normally held on the first Monday of the month.

LEEWOOD SEASON REVIEW
After a delayed start to our season here at LEEWOOD due to the weather i.e. the flooded track , canoes would have been needed to get around the track, then the beast from the east , we managed through a lot of hard work to run 5 race days, including our war of the roses 2 day event.
.The sun did shine on all our meetings including our season finale on the 2nd September.
A huge well done to all our class points champs and to our new Ladies and Mens champion of champions Suzanne and Jack Gibbons.
Quite a few new drivers racing with LM prefix this season, always a good thing.
A BIG thanks to all our visiting drivers from as far away as Scotland and mid Wales especially, come back again next year.
Hopefully we will attend charity cars shows again next year to promote the club .
We are also looking for sponsors for 2019, contact a committee member if you can help.
So that's it at LEEWOOD for 2018.
WHERE ARE THEY NOW
STEVE BOOTH LM27
Steve started autograss racing back in the early 80s. He raced a class 8, back then some raced a Mini 1298 fitted at the rear it worked well but the more popular engine combination was a Ford 1300 engine mated to a VW gearbox , this is the choice Steve used very successfully at tracks across the northern area , with various trophies collected as a result.
He was assisted by his long time buddy Kenny who also helped at the track with his Landrover. He actually changed the wheels at the track to a set of Knobblies to assist on track as a recovery vehicle, then changed them back at the end of the meeting ,dedication or what?
Back to Steve ,he also raced a Ford Escort 1300.Son Daniel has raced for a while but not recently but tells me he has another Booth almost ready to continue the Booth connection with Leewood.
