The MSA recognises that motor clubs are the backbone of UK motor sport and is committed to aiding their development through a variety of resources and initiatives:
The MSA's Go Motorsport programme is bolstered by a nationwide network of 10 Regional Development Officers (RDOs), who are tasked with developing the sport in their areas while also delivering the Go Motorsport message in schools and colleges. Your local RDO can bring an informed outside perspective to help develop your club and promote its activities. For more information visit the Go Motorsport website.
To help encourage newcomers, the MSA offers a Taster Event permit, under which all competitors are deemed to be club members for the day. This allows clubs to run events for members of the public, making it as easy as possible for them to get their first taste of competitive grassroots motor sport from behind the wheel. MSA-registered clubs are permitted to run one such event per year in each discipline for public and non-club members. Apply for a Motor Sport Taster Event and download an Organising Permit Application form here.
The MSA provides a fund that offers registered clubs grant aid towards development activities. Since the fund was started, the MSA has provided grant aid of over £1 million to assist projects worth a total of more than £5 million.

The BMSTT provides support towards venue improvement projects and the purchase of safety-related equipment. A separate BMSTT website is due to be launched imminently. In the interim, any BMSTT applications or queries should be sent via email to Allan Dean-Lewis MBE.
