Motorsport UK is urging the motorsport community to respond to a Transport Scotland consultation on proposals to enable closed-road motorsport.
The consultation can be found here and the deadline for responses is midnight on 28 January 2019.
Closed-road events help organisers take the sport to new audiences and deliver an economic boost to local hosting communities. As the sport’s governing body, Motorsport UK has spent many years campaigning for new laws to allow these events in all four nations of the United Kingdom.
New powers enabling closed-road motorsport came into effect in England in April 2017, and in Wales in February 2018. Closed-road motorsport was already possible across Northern Ireland, where road closure orders have made famous events possible for decades.
In its consultation, Transport Scotland is seeking views on a possible event application process involving the relevant governing bodies and local authorities. The consultation can be found here and the deadline for responses is midnight on 28 January 2019.
Motorsport UK’s own response to the consultation can be found here.
