The OWLS Motor Club was founded in 1926 as the Oxted, Westerham & Limpsfield Motorcycle & Light Car Club and later incorporated Sevenoaks.  Hence the OWLS Motor Club was formed.  It was later made into a limited company for the security of Committee members.


Prior to the war it was a very active motorcycle grass track club and was part of the Grass Track Combine at Brands Hatch before it became a road racing circuit.  This continued until the 1980's when more members became interested in competition trials riding and this became the main sporting activity in recent years for both adults and children. However, we have members involved in road racing, trail riding, long distance trials and classic motorcycles.
