I was just coming here to post the same thing!!! I wonder if I will now have to be a member before I can apply for a licence?

A good start to would be to ditch all the expenditure on their young talent programmes. Not sure how keen I am for a proportion of my fees to be spent helping someone else trying to be an F1 star. Those costs ought to be covered by a levy on the existing stars.

Interestingly, Microsoft Outlook knows more than you think...the email was in the Junk folder

It's difficult to get it right these days. Send out the email first and it's "typical MSA, make these changes but haven't bothered with the website etc. " So they spend time sorting out the online stuff first and it's "typical MSA, why do I have to find on social media first?"

It depends on your age as to which form of notification is your preferred method, I suppose.

Just lately I have been no fan of the MSA and its archaic procedures off and on track. I have been heavily supporting non MSA karting which has a more pragmatic stance. But we do need the consistency of rules that a national governing body can bring. I really want DR to pull all the threads if motor sport together so we don't rush off in different directions.

Let's give it a chance. What I've seen is positive so far and may just work. I hope the wind of change is blowing through the whole organisation. Good luck to MSUK.

I agree with Max - let's give them a chance. It's painfully obvious that motorsport needs to adapt to survive. Maybe we need to put the cynicism to one side for a bit whilst we see how things develop.

I can think of better things to change than the name

Change the rule that you cannot get a promotion to a higher grade licence for a Clerk... unless you officiate at a higher grade meeting....which you cant do ... unless you belong to the "inner circle" of bigger clubs

Change the way that the module training is done (it dates back to the 50's ) for becoming a clerk, put in place exams and tasks that need to assessed and marked etc rather than it being "signed off" in a book that is a photocopy

Help promote younger clubs to get more content by way of younger competitors but more over YOUNGER OFFICIALS... as they are getting fewer and fewer

Changing the name makes it sound like a webpage or a magazine, its not, its supposed to be the organisation responsible for Motorsport governance

Got my licence renewal docs in the post today, with covering note about the changes and stressing that we'll be "members" not just licence holders....


It all sounds very positive, so happy to give it a chance....not that I have much option

Benefits as listed above. Not a great package in my opinion over what is currently available. Also no mention of the increase in licence costs. Why am I not surprised?

Great play has been made on the increases in lifeing of belts and seats for National use. In respect of belts it looks like common sense has prevailed. As regards seats I remember that it was originally possible to extend the homologation, by I believe 2 years, by having the seat checked over and tested by the manufacturer and I had this done by Cobra seats. I believe this was discontinued but I don't know when and why.

I'm hoping for the best but I'm not holding my breath.

Approx 3% increase on my licence cost. £6 or two coffees while out. Luckily I can squeeze another year out of the last SRECG performed. Next renewal will be more expensive!

The speel regarding benefits is just typical PR, but I will be checking out what discount DFDS ferries are offering.....

Off topic, but while reading the link to news I spotted the recent VNUK update, which looks encouraging.

Managed to read the letter from Dave last night . Guess fair play to him for looking at the bigger picture about recruiting new members . Not sure myself where to start but we will raise this topic tomorrow at out FF2000 AGM.

In the closeted world of motor sport everybody knows what MSA means. But , outside that world , where there are more 'challenges' for the sport than ever before , nobody had a bloody clue who the MSA was , let alone what it did . So changing to a name which , y'know, sort of describes what they're involved with sounds like a very positive step to me ...

Well, given Google's AI data grabbing these days, such a statement might be relayed to all sorts of databases and then interpreted as 'blind' and flagged up to prevent license renewal.


Never knowingly admit to anything, even in jest!


Just sayin' ...


But what were you thinking of Mike ..?

No email here, will check spam folder tomorrow, got the letter though . . . Now I'm officially 'middle aged' I'm waiting until early spring to get a full MOT and renew license, which should do me 2 years? . .who knows, there may be someone who needs an average driver with perfect eye sight.
