Motorsport UK have announced changes to the way event are to be run starting January 2020.
New Motorsport UK RS Clubman licence from 2020
Dear Club Member,
We hope you are looking forward to the upcoming year.
We wanted to let you know that from January 2020, Motorsport UK will be introducing a requirement for all competitors in Motorsport UK permitted events to hold a Motorsport UK competition licence; in addition to your club membership. This will be at a minimum the new RS Clubman licence, This applies to new competitors as well as to anyone previously competing solely with a club membership card.
The good news is that this entry-level, RS Clubman licence, will now be free.
This initiative is being introduced by Motorsport UK to encourage participation at grass roots level as well as to ensure that all competitors are covered by comprehensive public liability and personal accident insurance. It replaces the Non-Race Clubman licence, (which in 2019 cost £29). All licence holders will have access to the Member Benefits Programme which provides substantial discounts on well-known brands’ products and services, and can offset the costs of competing.
If you have not previously held a Competition licence or not renewed in 2019, it will also be a requirement to apply for a new RS Clubman licence in order to compete or be a passenger in Club events. This is free of charge and applicable to Autotests, Trials, Cross Country and Road Rallying including 12 Cars and Scatters. Please note: an RS Clubman licence is not required if you are already in possession of a current 2019 Competition licence.
You can apply for an RS Clubman licence from the Motorsport UK website from 18 November.
We wish you a safe and enjoyable year of motor sport in 2020.
