FLEET MOTOR CLUB
Fleet Motor Club was created in April 2000, an idea and lifelong dream of Colin Roberts "Head of the Roberts family". The children (seven of them) have all been raised with "Motor Racing" in their blood, which has proved to be an added inspiration in the creation of what we have all (family & friends) worked so hard for. "Fleet Motor Club"
started racing in the mid 70's, racing three or four times every week. Wherever
there was a race meeting, we travelled to it. "Yarmouth, Ipswich,
Arlington, Wimbledon, and of course Aldershot" In fact he had an accident
whilst "Banger" racing at Wimbledon in the early 80's which resulted
in a bone in his wrist being replaced with "plastic" This didn't stop
his desire to be on the track. Even with his arm in plaster, we made the journey
to the race meetings. He would drive and I would change the gears, it was fun at
the time, but I would have to reconsider ever doing that now! Our lives in those
days, were mostly spent at the edge of a race track "somewhere". In
1986 we made a family decision to "Cool it" we had 4 children at the
time and things were becoming more expensive. Car's were costing a lot more and
our time was wearing thin with the children and general "Family Stuff"
So we decided to call it a day, but always knowing that if we went back to
"Racing" we'd be "Hooked" again.
