Alan Gow, chairman of the Motorsport Strategy Development Group, commented: “It is important that we got the balance of the core panel correct before going any further and I am satisfied we have now achieved this. The panel will be setting the direction of the MSDG`s work, identifying the crucial issues that both the sport and the industry must address for their mutual long-term benefit and putting into place the measures needed to lead the sport and industry forward in a positive and structured manner. I am already encouraged by the amount of commitment and energy these key players have shown - we are on the right road.”

Gow also now sits on the Department of Trade and Industry`s Motor Sport Competitiveness Panel and is the chairman of the Sport Sub-Group, one of four working groups advising the government on the future needs and critical issues of UK motor sport and its industry.
