It was another close one down in Frocester as Roland Uglow took win number 3 in a row, this season. He had started round 3 trailing Ian Veale by a single point, with John Fack just a point further back, but thanks to five 0’s across the 8 hills he set a superb score of just 3 points to take victory from Veale by 8 points. Uglow really is in fine form and the BTRDA Gold Star Championship final in Penrith, next January, should be a really cracker. Paul Price matched Veale’s score of 12 on round 3 to secure 3rd overall by just two points from Richard Sharp who notched up a score of 9 points on the final round. Fack dropped back to sixth overall as he failed to make a low score on final round of hills. Read More »

Another Winter closes in and the draw of the velodrome is too much to ignore. After taking in the London Six Day last year we swapped it out for the Revolution Series this year. With the opening round down in Lee Valley and the final to come in Manchester, just 6 weeks after, we will be getting closely acquainted with the cycling stars once more. Arguably the cream of the crop were to be found in the Women’s races with Lizzie Deignan making a rare excursion from the road to take on the likes Dani Rowe (nee King), Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker (and that is just the Brits). With Ed Clancy riding in the JLT Condor kit too we were guaranteed good racing. Read More »

Just a week after our first visit to Shelsley Walsh, we made our first foray to Prescott for the VSCC Cotswold Trial. The day started out overcast and okay but soon descended in to light drizzle that refused to budge for the rest of the day. It made many of the hills very challenging, even at Prescott. Still it all part of the challenge and with multiple classes to fight for here are the trophy winners from the event – The Harold Powell Cup to the overall winner – Wiliam McVicker; the Inderwick Cup to the best Vintage Car – Stephen Fathers; the Cotswold Cup to the best Class 0 Car – George Gosling; and the DHO Spirit of the Cotswold Trial Award – Annie Scaldwell.

The Motor Sports Association (MSA) will make significant changes to its governance structures and processes from 2018 following detailed analysis of the recommendations of a major strategic review.

The review was carried out during 2016 to audit the functions and remit of the governing body. It centred on ten core areas of the MSA’s operations, the first being Board, Structure and Governance, with an MSA Board working group established to work through the recommendations.

A key outcome from the review is the reconfirmation of the MSA Board’s primacy in the governance of UK motor sport. It also recognised that the Board is ultimately accountable for all decisions that are taken on its behalf by Motor Sports Council, the sport’s rule-making body. Therefore, from 2018 the Chairman of Motor Sports Council will recommend all rule changes to the MSA Board, which will then be responsible for their ratification. Read More »
