The Inter-Register Club
The Inter-Register Club is an association of one-marque car clubs for pre-war cars. Its sole purpose is to run a series of events each year to exercise those cars (and their owners). Back in the fifties most single marque clubs realised that they could not raise enough interest within their own clubs to make events like rallies viable and were too small to warrant affiliation to the Motor Sports Association (MSA). This precluded them from legally running competitive events on public roads. To overcome this problem a number of them got together and formed the Inter-Register Club (IRC) which is affiliated to the MSA and permitted to run events on the public roads.
It is down to member clubs to organise the events (on behalf of the IRC) that make up a calendar of around eight events each year. These events, mainly navigation and scatter rallies and driving tests, typically field an entry of about twenty cars, and are held in various parts of the country. They are mildly competitive, light-hearted, and are intended to be not so intense as the VSCC (Vintage Sports Car Club) events, indeed they are an excellent training ground for VSCC rallies. They are a marvellous opportunity to drive through countryside you would normally bypass, to see other interesting marques, meet like-minded drivers and owners, and in the case of events like the Nightjar, to keep you fit.
Each year the "Inter-Register Shield" is awarded to the best performing marque and trophies are given for the best individual overall performance, best navigator, and the highest placed novice in any single event.
All members of the individual marque Registers are de facto members of the IRC and are entitled to compete in IRC events.
Currently pre-war cars from any of the following clubs are eligible.
Austin Ten Drivers Club
Pre-War Austin 7 Club
