MSA submits response to Vnuk consultation

18
May

The MSA has submitted its response to the government's consultation on Vnuk, a 2014 European Court judgement that threatens the future of all UK motorsport.

The court ruled that EU countries must look again at how they enacted EU motor insurance law in each country. The court interpretation would require all motorsport vehicles to have compulsory third party motor insurance. As a result, the UK government launched a consultation in December 2016 about changes to our Road Traffic Act.

The MSA has now entered its response as the four wheel governing body. Many other organisations have also responded. The MSA's preferred solution is for motorsport to be excluded from the EU's motor insurance directive. This is also the UK government's preferred option. Unfortunately the EU has announced further delays to its review process, and so the government may be forced to bring in the insurance requirements, with devastating effect on motor sport.
