The Motor Sports Association (MSA) regrets that two competitors have lost their lives as the result of an accident on the Loco 2 Stages rally today (29 December 2017).

The Loco 2 Stages is a single-venue stage rally held at Bramley Camp in Hampshire. The competitors who have tragically died were the driver and co-driver of one car. Their next of kin have been informed.

As with all serious incidents in or around UK motor sport, the MSA is now working with the event-organising club and the police to establish precisely what happened on this occasion.

The MSA sends its sincere condolences to the family and friends of the deceased crew.

The MSA will be making no further statement at this time.
