|The Motor Sports Association (MSA) has confirmed that a spectator has been killed on today’s Snowman Rally, the opening round of the MSA Scottish Rally Championship. The MSA extends its deepest sympathies to the families of those involved.
The Snowman Rally is a Stage Rally event, organised under the auspices of the Motor Sports Association, national governing body of four-wheel motor sport.
As with any serious incident in or around UK motor sport, the MSA is now working closely with the organising club, the police and other agencies to establish precisely what happened on this occasion.
The Motor Sports Association would like to stress that safety and risk management are the foremost considerations in each of the 5,000 motor sport events organised each year in the UK and the sport has an excellent track record in this respect.
The MSA will be making no further statement at this time.
