Club started by some of the riders racing on the defunct Warwick Blue Diamonds track on the Racecourse.

Wes Plummer(a parent) took on the early responsibility of club manager, and organised friendly matches.

He also persuaded the local council to provide a new shale topping and flagstones for the pit area.

Many say that without Wes there would have been no Warwick Royals CSC.
