The Motorsport Club Straßbessenbach was founded on June 21, 1967 by some motorsport enthusiasts. While working on motocross machines in the barn of a founding member, they decided to start an association. In the same year the 1st motocross race was held in Straßbessenbach. Even then, the club managed to get more than 60 solo drivers and over 28 teams to the start. Until 1976, the MSC held a motocross race every year within the Hessian Motor Sport Ring. Some of them were even with international participation.
