|The workshops, led by Stuart Turner (Member of the Motor Sports Council and former Ford Motorsport boss) and Allan Dean-Lewis (MSA Head of External Affairs), will take place on weekday evenings during the autumn. They will cover the length and breadth of the country from Perth to Jersey and Cardiff to Ipswich.
The workshops will be aimed primarily at club Committee Members and Officials, especially magazine editors and those acting as press officers or responsible for media contact at club, event or championship level. However, all club members and motor sport enthusiasts are welcome to participate and the MSA has also extended the invitation to centres and clubs that are members of the Auto Cycle Union – the governing body of motor cycle racing.
"The seminars are designed to help people promote the sport more effectively in their region," explains Allan Dean-Lewis. "Most people undertake their motor sport and its associated administration in their spare time. If we can help them to attract more people into the sport, whether as spectators, officials or as competitors, then it is in all of our interests."
Each evening starts promptly at 20.00hrs and will finish around 22.00hrs. Reservations are not necessary – simply turn up on the night.
