Starting in Motorsport

What is Motor Sport?

Motor Sport is one of the most successful and popular sports in Britain. There are around 750 registered motor clubs which organise over 4,300 events a year in 22 different disciplines. There are at least 100,000 competitors, of which some 30,000 individuals hold MSA Competition licences. A1though it is often perceived as a male dominated sport, there are many more successful female participants than you might Imagine.

Who can compete?

Anyone over the age of 8, male or female, can drive competitively. As for cars, many forms of Motor Sport can be tackled with completely standard road cars, while others permit only very limited modifications. Some types of Motor Sport require each car to carry a passenger, often as an active participant , so you don't necessarily even need a car to be a competitor.

What if I don't want to compete?

You don't have to be a competitor to become actively involved. A great many rewarding and enjoyable opportunities exist in all areas of the sport, from the organization of events to marshalling. You can even seek permanent employment. Great Britain is the centre of Motor Sport, with over 50,000 men and women employed as truck drivers, secretaries, mechanics or salespeople, and in PR, administration and planning.
