Lincolnshire Louth Motor Club (2000), Midland Automobile Club (2001), Motor Cycling Club (2001), Liverpool Motor Club (2002), Lancashire Automobile Club (2002), Stockport Motor Club (2003), Coventry & Warwickshire Motor Club (2004), Sheffield & Hallamshire Motor Club (2004), Middlesex County Automobile Club (2005), Darlington & District Motor Club (2005) and Cheltenham Motor Club (2006).
