The Motor Sports Association (MSA) welcomes the final recommendations of the Scottish Government’s Motor Sport Event Safety Review Group regarding spectator safety at multi-venue stage rallies in Scotland.

Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive, said: “We value this report and endorse the commentary of the Review Group about the positive culture of rallying in Scotland among enthusiasts, whether spectators or volunteer marshals and officials.

“The final recommendations are comprehensive and wide-ranging. The MSA has been pleased to cooperate with the Review Group regularly since its inception and acted quickly following the group’s interim findings in October. The MSA will now evaluate each aspect of the report, consulting as necessary with those both inside and outside the governing body.”

While the recommendations originate from motor sport in Scotland, the MSA will consider how widely any changes should extend across the rest of the United Kingdom and will work with the FIA to explore their relevance to international motor sport safety.
