National Court report-Aidan Wray

Rally National B Stage Rally Licence 200201

On 1 April 2008, a disciplinary tribunal of the National Court convened to consider the matter of Aidan Wray and contravention of Regulation O1.1.3 (2007) [C9 (d) 1 (c) 2008] in making fraudulent applications for a Competition Licence in both 2006 and 2007.

The Court noted that at the time of the first application Aidan Wray was only 15 and that a forged and fraudulently altered passport was submitted with the application.

There was clear evidence that Wray had competed as a driver in Stage Rally events using the fraudulently obtained licence.  Bearing in mind the sophistication of the deception involved in the fraudulent applications and the persistence of the conduct, the National Court was obliged to consider this as a serious offence.

Decision:

In view of the seriousness of the offence, it was the decision of the National Court that Aidan Wray be banned from obtaining a competition licence until 31st March 2011.  This ban was to have effect both Nationally and Internationally.  In addition, Wray was ordered to pay a fine of £500 and ordered to pay £500 as a contribution towards costs
