2020 Seminar Dates Announced

Monday 09 December 2019

Motorsport UK is pleased to announce dates and locations for the 2020 seminar series for Club Officials and Event Organisers. These seminars are primarily aimed at those who are Club Stewards, Secretaries of the Meeting, Unlicensed Clerks, Competition Secretaries, etc. There is no requirement for those that act solely as a Licensed Official to attend the 2020 seminar series.   

Event Organisers from Motorsport UK-registered Clubs across all disciplines of the sport are invited to attend, and newcomers are especially welcome as these seminars provide a fantastic opportunity to develop and share knowledge and experience with other Club Officials and Event Organisers from around the UK.  

The day will be mainly workshop based, specifically aimed at exchanging views and information to support the running of successful events. Each seminar will consist of the various elements of event administration, from writing Supplementary Regulations and carrying out promotion prior to the event, through to incident handling and reporting during the event itself.   

As with previous years, a mileage allowance will be payable at the volunteer rate of 38p per mile for a maximum of 100 miles each way. Car sharing is encouraged and, if two or more people are sharing a car, the maximum mileage allowance is extended to a total of 200 miles each way, including the extra mileage incurred in collecting any fellow attendees as passengers. Details on how to claim mileage expenses will be provided following the day’s training. Those needing to fly can claim up to the equivalent maximum mileage rate of £76 total. Unfortunately, Motorsport UK is unable to pay any accommodation costs.  

The seminars will run between 10.00am and 4.30pm and full details will be given closer to the event date.
