The Motor Sports Council acts as a Sporting Commission, approving and amending rules proposed by its Commitees or Advisory Panels. The Council also discusses other issues surrounding motorsport throughout the UK.

Currently there are three Council representatives from the Home Countries: Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. The Committee Review Panel has decided to open this representation to applicants and the Panel therefore seeks nominations to represent Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland and also England on Council in 2018.

Successful nominations would be required to attend Council meetings during the year (currently three) and also produce Home Countries reports on motorsport activities for each Council agenda. There are no formal qualifications required other than a commitment to and experience in motorsport.

To apply, applicants should submit a CV of their motorsport involvement and achievements, together with a letter of recommendation from their Regional Association Secretary and forward the application to Andrea Richards at Motor Sports House, Riverside Park, Colnbrook, SL3 0HG. This must be done as soon as possible, as applications must be received before 2 June 2017.

Please note any applications received after Friday 2 June 2017 will not be considered.
