MSA announces Closed Road Campaign is back on track

The MSA has announced that its closed road campaign is back on track. The government is set to launch a public consultation in the next month. The consultation was put on hold for over a year as government resources were redirected to the HS2 project. Once the government consultation is under way the MSA will circulate guidance to all members on how they can respond. The MSA are looking for examples of local authorities who would be interested in taking advantage of the proposed legislation. Fingers crossed for a good response as a move like this could help to restore grass roots motorsport in the UK.
