RICH IN HERITAGE - WITH A PROGRESSIVE APPROACH

JOEY

Good, better, best. Never let it rest. 'Til your good is better and your better is best.

MARK

I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may find myself. For I have learned that the greater part of our misery or unhappiness is determined not by our circumstance but by our disposition.

DAVID

I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade... And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.

JULIEN

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.

Port Talbot Motor Club can boast a rich history in motorsport, but are also one of the most progressive clubs in recent times. Adapting to the latest requirements and event formats with a dynamic approach, Port Talbot Motor Club are proud to host one of the most popular sealed surface events in the UK - the Rallynuts Tour of Epynt.

THE BEGINNING

Formed from humble origins as a motoring part of the then Steel Company of Wales social club in the early ‘sixties, and becoming Port Talbot Motor Club in 1965, PTMC has gone from strength to strength, changing greatly along the motorsporting milestones, but retaining what has proved to be a successful formula, and prospering over fifty years on, in a motorsporting world where many other local clubs have sadly disappeared.

HISTORY

Although PTMC has strived – and seems to have succeeded – to keep ahead of trends in the sport, it has also enjoyed remarkable stability, based at the home it adopted in the far off nineteen sixties, the Tudor Inn(formerly the Cae-Rhys-Ddu Country Club) in Neath for over forty years. Although the old place had undergone several changes of owner, the “Tudor” always proved a welcoming home for the motor club, and thus any members from its formative years that might wander back knew exactly where to go farmacia! Sadly time and tide marches inexorably on, and in 2007 the club home was sold for redevelopment. The club has recently moved to Ynysygerwn Cricket Club, near Neath.
