In advance of the 2019 Motorsport UK licence renewal window, the governing body has announced an initiative putting members at the heart of everything that it does.
All licence holders are now auto-enrolled in a new membership programme, which delivers a range of benefits and discounts to the Motorsport UK community.
Members will benefit from discounts with Motorsport UK Membership Partners, typically targeted at offsetting some of the costs of competition. These include: competition and road car insurance (Adrian Flux); road car and competition tyres (Protyre); safety-wear (Grand Prix Racewear); tools and parts (Halfords); outdoor wear (Ellis Brigham); and ferry travel (DFDS).
All these complement the peace of mind provided by Motorsport UK’s personal accident insurance, offered as standard through the governing body’s insurance broker, JLT, to competitors competing in Motorsport UK permitted events and those overseas meetings inscribed on the FIA calendar.
Additionally, Motorsport UK is working to allow its members to reduce the cost of enjoying motorsport, partnering a number of news and feature magazines and motorsport events in delivering its members highly competitive discounts.
Additional partners and promotional offers will be announced in the coming weeks.
David Richards, Chairman of Motorsport UK, said: “Perhaps in the past we have been guilty of not doing enough to put our licence holders front and centre of the organisation and taken for granted their annual license renewals. We are going through a big cultural change, where little things make a big difference and the membership programme represents a start in this shift. This is the next logical step following our change in name and identity, helping ensure that we deliver on our promise and deliver tangible benefits to our customers.
“Additionally, I am delighted that we are able to extend this programme to all our volunteer marshals and officials as our way of saying ‘thanks’, for without them, our competitors would not be able to enjoy the sport we are all so passionate about.”
The programme and details of how to redeem each partner offer will be available accessible from the Motorsport UK members’ website in advance of 2019.
