The Motor Sports Association is seeking nominations for individuals to fill the vacancies on the Specialist Committees that represent the interests of the various disciplines of motor sport.
The Specialist Committees, covering Autotest, Cross Country, Historics, Karting, Race, Rallies, Speed Events and Trials, meet two or three times a year, normally at Motor Sports House to discuss and debate new regulations and other issues. The decisions and minutes are communicated via the Committee Chairmen to the next MSA Council meeting for approval.
All applicants must be a member of an MSA-recognised motor club or Regional Association which must ‘sponsor’ the application. However, there are no formal qualifications required other than the benefit of experience in motor sport. The role is entirely voluntary, although expenses will be paid to cover travel to meetings at Motor Sports House, and the appointment is normally for a three-year term. No person will serve more than three consecutive terms, apart from in exceptional circumstances.
How to apply
Applicants should submit a brief CV of motor sport involvement and achievements, including any relevant qualifications, together with name, address and contact details to the sponsoring MSA-registered club or Regional Association. The sponsor will forward the application to Andrea Wren at Motor Sports House, Riverside Park, Colnbrook, SL3 0HG. This must be done as soon as possible as applications must be received before the end of June 2010 at the latest.
Applications are considered for the limited number of positions available each year, so the MSA would encourage those who may have applied before but not been successful, to consider reapplying this year.
