Shropshire and Telford Autograss Racing, or STAR as it's more commonly known, was first establised in the 1980's following the disbanding of Shropshire and West Midland Banger Racing (SWMBR).
Autograss is a non-contact motorsport that takes place on an oval (approximately 400 metres) track using a natural soil surface. Due to the close nature of the racing, thrills and spills are never far away. There are several differing classes of car, from near standard minis or small hatchbacks through to spaceframed single seaters with monster V8s or twin motorbike power!.
STAR have had many National and British Champions throughout the classes, all of whom make STAR the successful club it is today. If you would like to become a part of our team in any way, then please check out the contact details on the Committee Page.
STAR race at Leasowes Farm, Crudgington, Nr Telford and have done since 1987 thanks to the kind permission of John Brown.

STAR have been invited by Telford and Wrekin Council to take a Race Car to New College Telford to their “Health Fayre” to show to the attendees the dangers of driving on the public roads.
They want to show how specially built race cars are built with safety in mind and differ considerably from a standard road car.
