The Fatal Accident Inquiry (FAI) into four fatalities on two stage rallies in Scotland is nearing the end of its second week, having commenced in Edinburgh on 18 July.

The FAI is considering the tragic deaths of Joy Robson on the 2013 Snowman Rally and Elizabeth Allan, Iain Provan and Len Stern on the 2014 Jim Clark Rally. It is expected to last for approximately ten weeks; the MSA has been present from the start and will remain so throughout the proceedings.

The MSA will give evidence, which means it is limited in its ability to comment while the inquiry remains ongoing but may offer further updates if appropriate.

The MSA looks forward to understanding any recommendations that the Sheriff may make when the inquiry concludes. In the meantime, the governing body reiterates its sincere condolences to the family and friends of the four victims.
