Monday 05 June 2023

The British Motorsport Trust has today launched a modern new identity, transitioning away from the British Motor Sport Training Trust (BMSTT) as part of the organisation’s journey to reach and engage the British motorsport community.

Motorsport has the power to inspire thousands across the UK with high-speed and high-performance thrills, each and every week. The British Motorsport Trust has a vision for a safer sport, with empowered and enabled members of the community, equipped with the relevant training and regulated equipment to effectively deliver their roles to a high standard.

Through a bold new identity and website, the British Motorsport Trust will showcase its initiatives and programmes to the UK motorsport community through its new positioning.

A new website has been launched, available at,, with the Trust also establishing a presence on social media for the first time with Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn channels.

Through its new channels the British Motorsport Trust will highlight its ongoing work and welcome grant applications from the motorsport UK community and encourage charitable donations for the betterment of motorsport.

Rod Parkin, Chair of the British Motorsport Trust, commented, “The positioning of the BMSTT to the British Motorsport Trust demonstrates the Trust’s shared commitment to the UK motorsport community.

“We’re delighted to showcase our initiatives and promote our work through our new identity and communication channels. We look forward to continuing our ongoing projects and helping clubs and the entire community for the benefit of the sport.”

Established in July 1977, the British Motorsport Trust was first registered as a UK Charity and has continued to serve British motorsport ever since through a variety of safety and training-related initiatives through a series of grant aid programmes.

Work is spread across three pillars:

  • Training – The British Motorsport Trust provides industry-leading training programmes using the network of Motorsport UK licenced training instructors through the Training Day Programme.
  • Safety – Through the Safety Development Fund, the British Motorsport Trust provides financial contributions that aid the community in rolling out safety improvements across all disciplines that comply with Motorsport UK requirements and regulations as well as providing Rescue Unit support.
  • Special Projects – Identified by the Board of Trustees, projects originate from Training Day Programme and Safety Development Fund applications and are beneficial to the broad spectrum of the sport at large.

The Trust will operate under the working title of British Motorsport Trust and remain as a UK Registered Charity under the name of ‘British Motor Sports Training Trust’ (No. 273828). The Charitable Trust is constituted by a Trust Deed first executed on the 19 May 1977.
