Last year was a great start for the new regime at Mo­tor­sport UK led by David Richards and lat­terly joined by Hugh Cham­bers. The body be­came much more fleet-of-foot, able to make quick de­ci­sions based on com­mon sense, some­thing which hasn’t al­ways been the case with the or­gan­i­sa­tion.

A re­brand – chang­ing the name and logo– may have been costly, but what it stands for is an or­gan­i­sa­tion which wants to stim­u­late grass­roots par­tic­i­pa­tion and be­come more cus­tomer-fo­cused. We’ve al­ready seen ex­am­ples of the re­moval of bur­den­ing reg­u­la­tions, and the in­tro­duc­tion of a dis­count scheme for many re­tail­ers as part of sign­ing up for a Mo­tor­sport UK li­cence. An on­go­ing re­view into safety and a look at bustling rally and rac­ing cal­en­dars which are spread­ing en­tries too thin are among points on the 2019 agenda. Now Richards ( left) has his feet un­der the ta­ble, 2019 could be a great year for UK grass­roots mo­tor­sport.
