OK, I'm probably missing something as usual but surely the bit about 'when used consistent with the normal use of the vehicle' means when being operated.... Parked up sorned or in a museum would surely not be included in this.... Neither would be being trailered to a meeting..... Surely when competing we're covered by the third party insurance covering the Meeting?? (or so I always assumed)

fatboyslim has a spectacular aura about fatboyslim has a spectacular aura about
hows this gonna be enforced? can't see the bizzies turning up at every car, bike, kart and tractor pulling event and asking to see your documents. although as usual there will be many many jobsworths jumping at the bit to enforce such stupid,ill thought out, unneccesary and pointless rules. do we know of any such organisation that does that currently?

Some of our rule makers/enforcers do actively seem to be anti motor sport

Well hopefully this is unlikely, but if the MIA issued the details about the consultation date then there must be some worry about it all and hopefully other industry bodies in Europe will be doing the same.

If the EU get a lot of comments it might make them realise how bad the intended directive could be for jobs and the economy and that the court ruling needs to be addressed.

So please fill in the form and copy a letter/email about it to your MEP and MP as if they get a lot of emails about the damage that the Vnuk ruling could do, they might even start to do something about it before anything is set in stone.

If it were to happen then no event would be sanctioned by the MSA or any other organisation, so the "bizzies" wouldn't have to turn up as there wouldn't be an event running that day. Plus if somebody did an event without it being sanctioned, that's an easy target for the "bizzies" and they like those don't they.
