The MSA has given evidence to the Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI) into the tragic deaths of four people on the 2013 Snowman Rally and the 2014 Jim Clark Rally.

The FAI commenced in Edinburgh on 18 July. Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive, gave evidence on behalf of the governing body throughout Tuesday. This included setting out the MSA’s response to the 29 recommendations of the Scottish Government’s Motorsport Event Safety Review (MESR). Additionally, Simon Blunt, MSA General Secretary, has been in attendance throughout the proceedings.

With almost all evidence now given, the FAI will hear submissions from the various parties involved later this month. The Sheriff will then deliver his report in due course.

The MSA wishes to take this opportunity to reiterate once again its condolences to the family and friends of the four victims.
