The Motor Sports Association (MSA) has published the latest edition of its Stage Rally Safety Requirements (SRSRs), the template for the organisation of all UK stage rallies.

The SRSRs were first produced in 2015 as part of the RallyFuture programme to further enhance safety in UK stage rallying. This is the third time that they have been updated, following feedback from event organisers, Safety Delegates and others from within the UK rallying community.

This latest revision comes into effect from 1 July 2017 and includes a complete renumbering of the requirements in a style similar to the MSA Blue Book. There are also new annexes including: Predicted Marshal Strength; Competitor Briefing; Splits and Merges; Risk Assessment Templates; and First-on-Scene. There are also revisions to existing annexes covering the media, service areas and refuelling.

Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive, said: “We are extremely grateful for the way in which volunteer organising teams have risen to the challenge of implementing the Stage Rally Safety Requirements, which remain crucial to ensuring the future of the sport in this country. The document will always be subject to revision and enhancement as we gather feedback from events and we will endeavour to keep it as up-to-date and user-friendly as possible.”

The update is available in two formats. First there is a straightforward updated version of the main document. Secondly and alternatively, the updates will be available as a supplementary sheet to the existing main document.
