The MSA has confirmed that Ian Watson has been appointed to the position of Chairman of the MSA Race Committee and will sit on the MSA Motor Sports Council.
Ian has been involved in motor sport since 1977, when he was introduced to marshalling. He is currently an active International Race Clerk of Course both at home and abroad and has been based with the British Automobile Racing Club at their Thruxton headquarters as Business Development Manager for the last decade.
Ian is also a member of the Race Championship Control Panel and the Volunteer Officials Advisory Panel. Last year he led a successful British delegation to the first Formula 1 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, where he was responsible for 351 marshals.
After the first meeting of the year on Wednesday, Watson said: “I am delighted to be asked to take on such a role for the MSA and look forward to building upon the good work done previously by the Race Committee.”
