Welcome to the home of the Golspie Sprints and Caithness Autotests.
Caithness Car Club was formed in 1955 to specifically run motorsport events in the North of Scotland. The club has grown from strength-to-strength and regularly hosts one of the most desired events in Scotland - the Golspie sprint!
The club organises both sprints and autotests which are held in the local areas of Wick and Sutherland. Autotests are held as part of the clubs own championship, whilst the sprints at Golspie form part of the clubs local championship and the renowned Scottish Sprint Championship.
The club is more known in the sprinting scene, but it did once run one of the most notorious hillclimbs - Rumster, whether its notoriety was a result of the white knuckle driving or the social scene, only those who participated will know!
Unfortunately the Forestry Commission used the tarmac for access when tree felling and destroyed the track. Caithness Car Club surrendered the track license and the hill dropped off the championship. However, the committee are working hard to try and resurrect the hillclimb at Rumster and its hoped it might once again, provide more thrills in years to come.
Caithness Car Club is registered in Scotland No. 89777
