The Council

The Motor Sports Council

The Council is custodian of the sporting power for the United Kingdom and the “Sporting Commission” under the FIA statutes. The Council’s responsibilities include the governance of UK motor sport, the improvement of safety, the regulation of motor sport by enforcing FIA regulations and drawing up National Rules of Competition, judicial matters and dispute resolution, and the development of motor sport together with the approval of British Championships.

How to raise issues with the Council

The Council welcomes contributions to its work. Issues should be raised with member clubs, who can pass ideas to the Regional Associations for consideration at Regional Committee and then to Council. Alternatively, Motorsport UK can be contacted directly.
