Motorsport UK enforces General Regulations to minimise risk and ensure a level playing field in UK motorsport. These regulations are evaluated and amended throughout the year by a number of Specialist Committees representing various branches of the sport.

The Specialist Committees meet two or three times a year, normally at Motor Sports House, to discuss and debate new regulations and other issues. They recommend regulation changes to the Motor Sports Council; the Council is led by the Chairman, who is joined by the Motosport UK Chairman and CEO, representatives of the Home Countries, and the Specialist Committee Chairmen. Council decisions are ratified by the Motorsport UK Board and then passed to Motorsport UK, as the Executive Body, for implementation and enforcement.

The role is entirely voluntary, although expenses will be paid to cover travel to meetings at Motorsport UK House. The appointment is normally for three years.
