BMSTT launches website and seeks new trustees


The British Motor Sports Training Trust (BMSTT) has recently launched its new website at, featuring information about the Trust and grant aid guidance for MSA clubs and organisations.

The BMSTT supports safety and training initiatives in motor sport through grant aid funding and in a typical year it provides total grants of around £400,000. The Trustees play a vital role, volunteering their time to make important decisions about the Trust’s work.

The BMSTT also wishes to increase its number of suitable and appropriately skilled independent Trustees to join the existing team headed by Lord Rooker as independent Chairman. The Trust meets at least twice a year at Motor Sports House and the Trustees carry substantial responsibilities for running the charity and looking after its affairs.

For further information about the Trust and how you may be able to become involved as an independent Trustee, send a CV and covering email to
