Closed Roads Events

Post by scimjim » Thu Feb 27, 2014 12:35 pm

I suspect that everyone with an MSA licence has received this but post it here for wider viewing:

Government launches closed roads consultation

The government has today announced a consultation on closed road motor sport events on mainland Britain. This consultation runs for six weeks until 10 April 2014.

The MSA has therefore prepared a special document outlining:

• What is means for motor sport
• How you can play your part in achieving a change in the legislation

To view the document, please click here.

Please help us to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!

Never try and argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level, then beat you based on experience.

Hadn't seen that. Let's hope they do it.

I suspect that's what Chris Evans was banging on about this morning in his references to a London Grand Prix.
