The Sport


Motorsport UK regulations are designed to ensure safety and fair play across four-wheel UK motorsport. These regulations are detailed in the Motorsport UK Yearbook, commonly known as the Blue Book.

All regulations proposed by the Specialist Committees come before the Rules Committee for debate and ratification. However before they reach the Committee, regulations are usually subject to a consultation process that gives the motorsport community an opportunity to provide feedback.

Regulation changes can be implemented without consultation in matters of urgent safety or for clarification purposes, or following recommendations from the Rules Committee to The Board.

Action sheets detailing proposed regulation changes are posted here and can be found via the links on the right. These action sheets contain both contact details and closing dates for submitting comments.

Consultation is taken into account by the Specialist Committees and regulation changes are often revised post-consultation before being presented to the Motorsport UK Board.

To provide advance warning for competitors and officials, new rules approved by The Board for future implementation are published here.
