Cork Motor Club came into existence in 1976.
That was the year that a group of enthusiasts got together in Blarney, Co. Cork to give birth to what was then, Ireland's newest motor club. Unlike most newly formed motor clubs of the time, Cork Motor Club was founded, not by a group of enthusiastic beginners, but by a band of highly experienced people who saw the need for a club with a fresh outlook on motor sport in the Cork area.
Within a short space of just six months, Cork Motor club boasted a membership of some 140 eager members. The majority of these had been, and in some cases still are, members of other motor clubs in the county. There was also a large number of people who were first introduced to motor sport through becoming members of this new and enthusiastic club. During this first year of 1976 Cork Motor Club did not run any major events but club members were nonetheless kept busy mainly through organising social functions and marshalling on other club's events throughout the country.
