After years of lobbying by the MSA (Motor Sports Association) the Government has announced a public consultation is to take place to facilitate a change in the current law on road-racing.
At present legislation means it is difficult to run motor sport
events on closed public roads, as itis Parliament that has to grant a
temporary suspension of the Road Traffic Act. The proposal by the MSA
would see local councils taking over these powers who could debate
issues & pass the required closures a lot quicker.
The consultation runs until April 10th. More details can be found on the MSA website by visiting:
