MSA chief ex­ec­u­tive Rob Jones’ state­ment

Motor Sport News - - Headline News -

“By Jan­uary the MSA had ne­go­ti­ated new for­est ac­cess agree­ments with Forestry Com­mis­sion Scotland and Forestry Com­mis­sion Eng­land, in line with Re­tail Price In­dex.

“Un­for­tu­nately we have yet to reach agree­ment with NRW, which is cur­rently seek­ing an in­crease that would be un­work­able for ral­ly­ing in Wales and thereby detri­men­tal to the coun­try’s hugely suc­cess­ful mo­tor­sport in­dus­try and also to the many lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties that ben­e­fit from the sport.

“How­ever, we con­tinue to work hard on be­half of the sport in Wales, and with dis­cus­sions con­tin­u­ing we re­main con­fi­dent of reach­ing agree­ment with NRW as soon as pos­si­ble.”
