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 gets a UKAC round
Vinny Gibbons Heywood based garage owner has been a LEEWOOD member since the 1970s..He raced a Ford v6 in class 10 that engine was mated to a VW transmission and generally worked well ,making one of the quickest cars in the class nationally .he has won many trophies ...
Vinny decided he wanted more power under his right foot so with a fresh chassis this time with a Chevrolet v8 for power he has developed a racer to compete with the nations best.
Vinnys other cars include a mark 9 1950s Jaguar and a Chev Corvette.
Back in the 80s Vinny ventured out in a formula one stock car at the old Belle Vue, just the once and decided to stick with Autograss.
Thanks for your time Vinny.
