The MSA is delighted to confirm an important new partnership with the Scottish Government, as part of its commitment to implementing the recommendations of the Motorsport Event Safety Review.

A key member of the review and someone many people in the sport have now met is Jacqueline Campbell, a civil servant with the Scottish Government, who has joined the MSA on secondment as part of its ongoing commitment to rolling out the recommendations.

Richard Foggo, chairman of the Review Committee, said: “The Scottish Government take safety at motor sport events very seriously and we are committed to working in close partnership with the MSA to improve safety. The secondment of a senior Scottish Government staff member to the MSA demonstrates that our commitment is real.”

Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive, added: “This is a very important development, not only in terms of the MSA benefiting from Jacqueline’s direct input but also in the development of our partnership with the Scottish Government and also through them, our interaction with other key stakeholders in Scotland including the Forestry Commission, the police, and local authorities.”
