The Motor Sports Association (MSA) has frozen the cost of certain competition licences and event permits for 12 months in a move designed to help thousands of competitors and organisers preparing for the 2015 motor sport season.
All 2015 competition licences at National B level or below will remain at their 2014 prices next year. This accounts for the majority of all competition licences issued each year by UK motor sport’s governing body.
Additionally, all 2015 event permit fees will be kept at 2014 prices. The MSA issues approximately 5,000 permits per year to event organising clubs.
Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive, said: “The MSA is committed to keeping UK motor sport at the forefront of the sport worldwide. That means supporting our competitors and the organisers of the events they compete in.
“As such, we are pleased to be able to freeze the costs of event permits and the majority of competition licences for 2015. We hope this will encourage our members by easing some of the financial pressures they may feel, particularly as the economy continues its long road to recovery.”
The MSA Board has also agreed to freeze per capita insurance fees for the sixth consecutive year, meaning that they will remain at the current level in 2015.
