Frederick Simms: Club Founder and Automobile Pioneer
The Simms Centre was named after the Club’s founder, Frederick Simms. A motor industry pioneer and prolific inventor, Mr Simms pushed the fledging British motor industry forward, coining the terms ‘petrol’ and ‘motor car’. Mr Simms founded the Royal Automobile Club in 1897 for everyone who loved the automobile industry.
An automobile career had begun for Frederick Simms in 1890 when he purchased the rights to use and manufacture the Daimler high-speed petrol engine in England. These engines paved the way for the start-up of the British motor industry, influencing Mr Simms to form the Daimler Motor Syndicate Limited, in 1893, to become England’s first motor company.
Frederick Simms continued his legacy in the British motoring industry and in 1900 set up Simms Manufacturing Company Limited. The firm made Simms-Welbeck cars, marine engines, fire engines and military vehicles, including the first motor quadricycle equipped with a Maxim machine gun. Mr Simms also invented the Simms-Bosch magneto electric ignition, the first rubber automobile bumper and the first prototype automobile indicator signal.
