The Technical department provides an efficient and informative customer service to all members. This extends to the maintenance of technical rules and ensures their continued relevance by keeping up to date with evolving technologies.
By providing support for ongoing improvement in technical training and development of officials, we ensure all practices remain current. Additionally, the department executes an efficient service for processing and approval of a vast array of technical documentation and maintains a close liaison with manufacturers, including services for vehicle, component and safety equipment homologations.
The Safety department provides the safest possible environment for everyone who engages in motorsport through the governing body. This could be as a competitor, official, marshal or spectator.
The department provides pre-event documentation prepared to the highest standard and accessible for all members. By maintaining a close liaison with insurers, motorsport venues and manufacturers, risk can be reduced or eliminated. Managing the risk motorsport poses is key to maintaining insurance cover at a sustainable cost for the sport.
