2016

The Motor Sports Association (MSA) has published updates to the 2016 Stage Rally Safety Requirements, as part of its RallyFuture campaign to further enhance safety in UK stage rallying.

The Stage Rally Safety Requirements represent a common template for the organisation of all UK stage rallies. Following feedback from events and organisers, the requirements have been updated with reference to topics such as the Stage Commander, radio requirements, Safety Car procedures and much more.

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

Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive, said: “The Stage Rally Safety Requirements are key to RallyFuture but they’re also relatively new to the sport, so we’ve listened to organisers’ feedback and made adjustments where needs be. We appreciate that this has been a challenging time for rallying and that the requirements have increased workloads for hard-pressed volunteers, but it has been very encouraging to see the sheer effort and enthusiasm they have put in to help ensure the future of the sport we all love.”
