South West Off Road was founded in 2005 by a group of Motocross friends who at the time were all competing under another governing body, since then the group has grown dramatically to become one of the biggest motocross groups in the South.
At that time it was felt that the previous governing body were far too political and were charging riders too much money to participate in their hobby so SWOR was formed to ensure that riders young and old could enjoy their weekend sport without breaking the bank!
Previously the organisation was run by five separate clubs who ran 2-3 events a year, each club had their own team including riders and officials, helping to run the events. In more recent years however it was proving hard for clubs to generate the members needed to run their events which made things hard for the small club teams.
For the 2021 season, as an organisation it was decided to amalgamate individual clubs into one committee which will run all SWOR events. This means that you will now become a South West Off Road (SWOR) Club member and join the SWOR championship – each event run will still hold the SWOR manner, friendly and professional.
Patchquick Trophy 2021
Unfortunately, after discussions between the SWOR Team and the West of England MC we have made the hard choice to cancel the 2021 Patchquick Trophy.
With the event planned so close to when full lockdown is supposed to be lifted we feel it would be too large a step to have such a large crowd together so soon. We dont want to run this event half hearted so we will wait until 2022 when we can run a proper event like we have had before where everyone can come and enjoy a safe evening of Motocross !!
