The Motor Sports Association (MSA) has launched a revised child safeguarding policy to help provide a safe and positive environment for all young people in motorsport.
All MSA-registered clubs are required to adopt the policy, which has been designed to be more user-friendly. There is a template policy document that clubs can use, plus a range of guidance documents on topics such as DBS checks.
The policy includes – but is not limited to – a requirement for all clubs to:
Rob Jones, MSA Chief Executive, said: “The welfare of young people in motorsport is paramount. The MSA Child Safeguarding Policy confirms that all children have the right to enjoy the sport safely, and aligns us with other national governing bodies by providing clear guidance for clubs on how to achieve this.”
Due to the untimely passing of Midi Arnold, it has been decided to CANCEL the next Association meeting due on the 9th May. Instead our next meeting will now be the one previously scheduled to be held on Tuesday 8th August. Will you please note this date change. Clubs are also being advised of the change.
In the meantime if there are any Association matters which you need to have a decision on, make us aware, or have any other issues that we can assist with, please do not hesitate to contact Dave Cooper or Steve Gregg.
With regard to the funeral arrangements we are still awaiting final confirmation but it is looking like it will be held on Wednesday 10th May at Telford Crematorium. As soon as this is confirmed we will let you know.

Unfortunately, we are not the only club to experience this problem, which will only get worse as venues are developed, but we will make every effort to maintain the club’s premiere event for 2018.
As we are rounds of several of your Rally Championships we apologise to you and your Championship contenders for this decision which I can assure you was not taken lightly.
With the recent withdrawal of permission for the use of Throckmorton Airfield for events, Oxford Motor Club's 2017 Carfax Stage Rally was not going to be able to use the Warwickshire venue for a fourth time. Some suggestions for alternative venues have been looked at in the last two months but were, unfortunately, unsuitable for us to hold a quality event.
With the time left rapidly becoming too short to develop and put on a Stage Rally from scratch at a new venue, the 2017 Carfax Stage Rally (that was scheduled for 5th August) is now sadly cancelled and Oxford Motor Club will continue to look for another venue on which to promote the Carfax for 2018.
