Message from Gillian Sefton at SMS. Chance to have your say
In partnership with Motorsport UK and the SACU, SMS are undertaking a consultation to aid with the planning of the 2020-2024 Strategy for motorsports in Scotland.
Scottish Motor Sports was established in 2011 as a collaboration between the bodies that govern two and four wheel motor sport; the Scottish Auto Cycle Union (SACU) and the Motor Sports Association, now known as Motorsport UK.
Through taking this new collaborative approach, the initial objectives were to create an alignment within the Scottish motor sport community that enabled SMS to speak with one voice - for all two and four wheel motor sport - and represent the best interests of the whole sport to Government, authorised agencies and legislators.
Sportscotland fund sport Governing Bodies in 4 year cycles. In order to secure our second investment, we are required to submit a strategy detailing the intended direction of the sport alongside initiatives and targets which will help us get there.
At this stage, we require your help. SMS would like to provide everyone with an interest in motorsport in Scotland the opportunity to have their say in motorsports provisions present and future. With your knowledge, skills, experience and ideas, we can help shape motorsports in Scotland to best suit the people involved!
The Consultation Survey can be accessed here: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SMSPlanningConsultation
Thank you in advance for taking the time to support your sport!
Not long now before entries close for the championships, head to the website for all entry forms.
We look forward to seeing you this season
Chairman’s Message 20th January 2019 | Jan 20, 2019 |
Welcome to 2019 and a new season of speed events in Scotland.
Our regs for 2019 are now published on the website, our thanks to all involved over the winter in reviewing these regulations and bringing some long overdue updates.
We have an extra sprint round this year as well as a new class (A9), which will add some more interest to the championship.
Our governing body has been busy over the winter as well, as you will notice when your licence arrives and you find a name change to Motorsport UK as the MSA is now known. There are also promises to bring more member benefits to its licence holders, so check their website for details of offers and discounts from major suppliers. I am all for change if it makes a difference but am already bored of typing Motorsport UK as they will not allow it to be abbreviated for obvious reasons!
I hope your preparations for the season are going well and look forward to seeing you at our amazing venues throughout the country.
Marshaling continues to be as important as ever, if you know someone that is interested please introduce them to your own club, to SMMC or to Motorsport UK for more information about getting involved.
As ever, should you have anything you wish to bring up with the championship please let your club rep know (they are listed on the website) or drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best for your racing season
