Motorsport Industry Association Chief Executive Chris Aylett issued a dire warning about the future of the entire motorsport industry. In a rallying call to it’s members and the public Aylett said we have only until October 20th to get involved in an important EC consultation about (Vnuk) and said “if we fail to secure the amendment we seek then the likely outcome is that all motorsport activity, in every EU Member State, will cease”
He urged everybody to “act NOW to overcome this genuine threat to our own future and that of our employees and sport, from the unintended consequences of action taken by the European Commission (EC)”. You may have already heard about the Vnuk proposal from the EU but might not know much about it, It will mean that every person who races will be forced to buy third-party liability insurance to cover personal injury between motorsport competitors and car-to-car damage during any competition – from Formula One, Moto GP, World Rally to karting, historic and grass roots, whether regulated by the FIA or FIM or not.
The MIA gives detailed instructions on how to put your voice to the EC bureaucrats which unfortunately takes much longer to do than a vote for brexit, but if you have around 10minutes to spare and are prepared to be completely ignored by the monolith that is the EC and the EU, then goto this link www.the-mia.com/assets/miaresponseguidancetovnukmideuconsultationv4.pdf to download their PDF on how to do it. And if you want more detailed info on the dangerous Vnuk ruling, have a read of this http://www.the-mia.com/assets/vnukadangertothefutureofmotorsport-yourquestionsansweredv4-1.pdf
I know people who did in part vote for Brexit because of this very subject!
What do you think? are we all being a bit hysterical?
