MSA Rebranding

Hey it's working. The new 'MSA' is getting more customer friendly.
In the last couple of weeks they have extended the life of my seatbelts, recognised that our Midget Championship is not a comercial enterprise and reduced the permit fee, confirmed the 2019 Permit within days of applying and I got a refund on my motorhome insurance from Adrian Flux!
Definitely going in the right direction

Nice one Gil! There's an article about it on autosport.com, don't know if it's behind the pay wall or not.

My 2019 licence came yesterday . With licence you get a custom holder and a lanyard .Great idea as I lost my licence at Spa last year . My only dissapointment is you no longer get a blue book . I’ve kept all my books since I started racing . Never mind I did get another nice letter from Dave .

Blue Book

Found the link and had a peek. On p4 it says you can buy a BB - for £34.
Thirty-four quid! Did the licence fee go down by 34 quid? - no it did not.
What will Dave do with the £1 million saved by not sending them out with the licences?

Hmm - must admit I assumed I'd be getting a blue book - and if not that my licence fee should drop accordingly.

If you can download the Blue Book it will presumably be searchable.

That means you can much more easily discover all of the obscure regulations that you never knew existed when you check for information.

So ... not excuses about 'not knowing' that certain regulatory nuances exist ...

Thatís likely what it cost to pay someone to come up with the new name, and then someone to design all the logos etc to go with it. Then thereís the new headed paper and stuff, plus the internet side of it- website design doesnít come cheap......

Which is great for your licence, but what about your club membership card which you normally need @ sign on as well? Hmm

If you look at the spines of your collection of Blue Books you'll see that the price has increased by £1 every year in recent times. If you actually want to search for something the PDF version is much better.

I appreciate that there is a degree of cynicism on this forum but we've been complaining about the MSA for years and there does seem to be some substance behind the rebranding - let's give them a chance and tell them if there's something we don't like. Maybe they'll listen now.
