The 750 Motor Club was formed in 1939 as a means for Austin 7 enthusiasts to meet each other and talk about things relating to the Austin Seven.

As such the Club organized road rallies and trials and the Austin 'Special' started to make an appearance.
The Club has a sporting bias but still organizes more sedate road runs for enthusiasts who are more interested in a nice day out with a pub lunch.
