The Motor Sports Association (MSA) is recognised as the sole motor sport governing body for the United Kingdom by the world governing body, the Federation Internationale de L'Automobile (FIA).

As the governing body, the MSA is responsible for the governance and administration of all major forms of motor sports in the UK, controlling the technical and sporting rules across the various disciplines.

The MSA implements these rules, known as the General Regulations, to govern the conduct of motor sports. These rules are made and amended by the Motor Sports Council, which is the 'parliament' of motor sports, while the MSA acts as the 'civil service'.

The British Grand Prix and the Rally of Great Britain are the flagship motor sports events in the UK however the MSA is also concerned with the 34,000 licence holders, 10,000 volunteers & officials and the 5,000 events taking place in the UK each year.


The MSA is an organisation made up of more than 700 motor clubs (with a combined membership in excess of 200,000) organised around 13 Regional Associations across the United Kingdom.

It represents international and national issues relating to the governance of motor sports and is involved on various FIA Specialist Commissions.

The MSA is represented on the FIA World Council, exerting influence where necessary in the interests of the UK, helping to shape the direction of motor sports on the world stage.

Getting Started in Racing
Introduction
  
Thanks largely to the television, the world of Formula 1 Grand Prix racing is familiar to most enthusiasts and represents the ultimate dream of many young people entering the sport.

However, Formula 1 is by no means the only form of competition available: each year, there are over 300 race meetings, providing opportunities for a wide variety of cars.

From road-going saloons to expensive single-seaters, and offering keenly-contested championships based on regions, individual circuits, makes of car, or type of car.

Though motor racing can never be truly cheap, racing at club level is the backbone of the sport in this country and need not be prohibitively expensive.

It is still possible to race competitively in a car, which you have driven to the circuit.
 


Minimum Requirements
 

  • You must be at least 16 years old.
  • Before you can apply for your first Race Licence, you must do the following:


  1. Purchase a "Go Racing" starter pack from the MSA. This pack includes a DVD, a copy of the MSA Competitors Yearbook, the necessary application form, plus various other useful items.
  2. If 18 or over, obtain a medical certificate (the form for completion is in the "Go Racing" pack).
  3. Complete a half-day MSA course for novice drivers run only by members of the Association of Racing Drivers Schools (ARDS). Please contact your local school for costs.

 
The Novice Race Drivers Scheme
 
Novice racing drivers will be obliged to undergo a half days training at one of the Association of Racing Drivers’ Schools (ARDS), before they can obtain a National B Licence.

Any one who does not possess a Race Licence (apart from certain exceptions, see below) must first apply to the MSA for a "Go Racing" Pack. The pack contains – among other information – a "Competitors Yearbook", a DVD and a novice licence application form. The pack contains simple instructions on the procedure for obtaining a Race National B Licence.

One of the most popular form of motor sport in Britain, perhaps because it involves ordinary-looking cars. It involves two people working together: a driver and a co-driver or navigator, and the cars normally run at one-minute intervals, competing against the clock rather than directly against each other.

Another major attraction of rallying is that it takes place throughout Great Britain. Although most special stage events take place in less populated areas, road rallies are held even in the Home Counties.

Special Stage Rallying
 
These are far more expensive than road rallies, with more emphasis upon car preparation, speed and driver ability, rather than navigational skills.
More information
 
Road Rallying
 
While very specialised cars are required for top-level special stage rallying, unmodified, everyday cars can be used for simple road events, making this one of the cheapest forms for motor sport available.
More information
 


The Novice Stage Rally Driver Scheme
 
Any one who does not possess a Stage Rally Licence (apart from certain exceptions, see below) must first apply to the MSA for a "Go Rallying" Pack. The pack contains – among other information – a "Competitors Yearbook", a DVD and a novice licence application form. The pack contains instructions on the procedure for obtaining a Stage Rally National B Licence.
 
The Stage Rally National B Licence may be issued, without other qualification, to any of the following:

  •  
  • Anyone who held a Non-Race National B Competition Licence prior to 31st December 2001.
  • Anyone who held any MSA Competition Licence which was valid for driving in Stage Rallies prior to 31st December 2001. This category comprises all Race, Kart, Speed, Drag and Rally Licences (each of which has always been valid as a Non-Race National B). Evidence of having driven on a Stage Rally is not required.

 
Drivers not qualified as above will be required to successfully complete the BARS course. These are:

  •  
  • Anyone who has previously held only a Non-Race Clubmans Licence.
  • Anyone who has previously held only a Rally National A Navigator Licence.
  • Anyone who has never previously held any type of Competition Licence.

 
The Stage Rally National B Licence and what it covers:

  •  
  • The Stage Rally Licence is the only Licence which entitles the holder to drive in Stage Rallies. It may also be used for any other event requiring either a Non-Race National B or Non-Race Clubmans Licence.
  • Any competitor wishing to drive in Stage Rallies will be required to apply for a Stage Rally National B Licence. No Stage Rally event will accept Non-Race National B Licences for drivers.

 
Any competitor wishing to navigate in Stage Rallies may apply for a Non-Race National B, Rally National A Navigator or (if entitled) a Stage Rally National B Licence. None of these licences may be applied for on the day of an event; every Stage Rally competitor is now required to be in possession of his or her licence prior to competing.
