The club was founded some time before we affiliated to the ACU which was in February 1928. The club has been involved in all branches of motorcycle sport. A Sidcup member spotted a grass valley at West Kingsdown and suggested to the Sidcup Club Committee that we ask the landowner if the club could run a grass track there. He agreed, and for many years Sidcup, then other local clubs held Centre and National grass tracks which attracted hundreds of spectators. Around the 1950's, the then landowner decided to put tarmac on the grass track circuit, and change the sport to road racing The Brands Hatch road race circuit was born and evolved into the international venue it is today.
Some Sidcup members turned to Road Racing, going on to win trophies in the Isle of Man TT, the best known being Harold Daniell and Jock West.
Today we run Trials, Enduros, Long Distance Trials, Cross Country and Motocross. The club acquired its track - Canada Heights - in the mid 1980s and has been improving facilities ever since. The biggest spectator event is the "Early Birds Motocross", traditionally the first round of the Maxxis British Championship and huge crowds (10,000+) pack the circuit to watch. From 1999-2001 the British round of the Sidecarcross Grand Prix was also held here.
