Motor Drivers'


The Oxford University Motor Drivers’ Club (OUMDC) is inclusive to all forms of motorsport including eSports, and to every level of experience. The club began racing bikes and cars, and in more recent times, go-karting has become the club’s primary activity.

The club offers casual indoor karting events, hosts the annual inter-college Cuppers Match, and encourages enthusiastic drivers to compete in the British Indoor Karting Championship and the outdoor British Universities Karting Championship. The club also hosts a variety of meet-ups and motorsport trips.

The OUMDC was established in 1934 to contest the ‘Battle of the Blues’ race event with Cambridge University. The competition ignited an intense sporting rivalry which would become the prestigious annual Varsity Match.

The club is proudly sponsored and supported by TeamSport Indoor Karting, who provide the club with an exclusive membership option and discounted events to help make karting more affordable, inclusive and accessible.

Rest assured that no previous experience is necessary for club karting, as all members receive driving instructions and a safety briefing. There are no gears to worry about – just an accelerator and a brake pedal. The safety and protective racewear is all provided; members simply ‘arrive and drive’. The club organises travelling together to karting events.

When the chequered flag falls, and the helmets are off, the club ultimately serves to help members make new friends and have a good time! Since 1934 many lasting friendships have been formed through the club, and alumni members are invited to special Veteran events. We look forward to welcoming you to the club!
