closed roads a bit closer

this was copied from British Rally Forum. The general consensus seems to be that initially this will be better suited to a hillclimb rather than a rally


In what must be the best news in recent times for motorsport in the UK and rallying in particular, on Friday 17th March the long awaited secondary legislation was enacted and comes into effect on 10th April 2017
See
http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2017 ... ion/1/made

The key points are;
This applies only to England, the same legislation will apply to Wales but will need to be enacted by the Welsh Assembly. This is expected to happen in the next few months. Scotland has it's own legislation that has not yet been enacted and is unlikely to proceed before the outcome of the Scottish Fatal Accident Enquiry.
The MSA is the authorising body for 4 wheel motorsport and the ACU is the authorising body for 2 wheel motorsport.
The process for applying for a 'Motor Race Order' (the term used for all types of motorsport application) is fairly straightforward!! At least 6 months prior to the event you must apply to the relevant highways authority (most likely to be a county council highways department) for a 'Motor Race Order'. Prior to this application you must have an MSA permit for your event. In addition to the normal requirements for an MSA permit you will also need to submit a detailed Safety and Operations Manual. I believe the MSA are developing a comprehensive package of support and requirements for potential event organisers.

It happens every week end in France during the season and for those who haven't experienced it, a real eye opener. No more 30 second seat time. Might be a good idea for some organisers to pop over for the week end and see how it's done regarding sponsorship etc From my experience it seems that every little shop keeper and small and large businesses will make sure they have an advert in the programme which every event has.

The Isle of Man have been closing roads for decades for sprints and hillclimbs of the 4 wheel variety as well as for racing on 2, 3 and 4 wheels (the latter for Karts).

I would have thought that any club that 'finds' a venue must first of all get the local community to buy into the concept. It isn't just local businesses but also any local residents whose life might be 'upset' by the road closures. This is probably best achieved through the local council. Personally I would have thought thath this would take a lot more than six months to achieve.

Looks like some form of closed roads for a hill climb has been going for a few years in Surrey.

This year it's running on this coming Sunday the 3rd.

Shere hillclimb just has demonstration runs and normal road traffic regulations apply.

You don,t need to go abroad to see how clubs run a closed road hillclimb . Just ask any of the Northern Ireland Motor Clubs how to organise and run a successful event . They have been running them on public roads almost as long as there has been cars .
