MSA welcomes Scottish Government motor sport safety review findings
The Motor Sports Association (MSA) has welcomed initial findings published Tuesday 7th October by the Motor Sport Event Safety Review Group, which was set up by the Scottish Government following the 2014 Jim Clark Memorial Rally. 

The group includes representation from the MSA alongside Police Scotland and other key stakeholders. Its initial findings, which can be found at www.scotland.gov.uk, include steps that organisers are recommended to take to further improve safety.

The MSA is working with organisers of the forthcoming Mull Rally (10-12 October) to help them implement these proposals so that their impact can be assessed ahead of the review group’s final report.

Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive, said: “We have been very impressed by how quickly the Motor Sport Event Safety Review Group has undertaken this considerable task, and the depth of understanding of our sport that it has acquired in a very short period of time. We welcome today’s interim findings and have immediately engaged with the sport regarding the proposals. Safety and risk management are an absolute priority for the MSA and UK motor sport.”
