WAMC & Go Motorsport 'Getting started in Motorsport in Wales' Junior Challenge
The Go Motorsport campaign has been set up by the Motor Sports Association, governing body of UK motor sport, to show people of all ages just how easy it is to get involved in one of the world’s most exciting and fast moving sports. From the age of just eight, motor sport can offer an enjoyable hobby, an elite athlete career path or a full-time career opportunity in one of the many associated industries. Go Motorsport presentations are delivered by a team of ten Regional Development Officers across the United Kingdom. They are former or current drivers, extremely knowledgeable, fully trained and of course CRB-checked. In Wales the RDO’s are Ryland James and Howard Davies.

The MSA has recently released a manifesto in its attempt to promote motorsport in particular given the upcoming elections. Part of this manifesto is the promotion of the ability to enable closed road rallying, something which the club thinks will improve the future prospects of rallying no end in the UK. See below for the full manifesto, but in particularly we would encourage you to visit the link www.msauk.org/manifesto and download the proforma letter to send to your local MP. The more awareness we can give to this manifesto, the better.
