Nine Days to Save European Motorsport – Act Now

11 October 2018
For Immediate Release

Dear Motorsport friend and colleague,


My apologies if you have already received this email and this is a duplicate; however, I do not apologise for the dramatic title, as our industry and sport face a serious, immediate problem, which you can help resolve.
We have until 20 October to respond to this important EC consultation, details of which are attached. If we fail to secure the amendment we seek, the likely outcome is that all motorsport activity, in every EU Member State, will cease.
EVERYONE involved in the business and organisation of European motorsport needs to act NOW to overcome this genuine threat to our own future and that of our employees and the sport, from the unintended consequences of action taken by the European Commission (EC).
The Motorsport Industry Association (MIA), along with others – including the UK Department for Transport – has been fighting to resolve this issue for more than two years, on behalf of our members and the wider EU motorsport community. Now, with your personal leadership and action, it is possible for us to resolve this, as I fully explain in the attached documents.
In simple terms, the EC plans to issue a new Motor Insurance Directive, as a result of which all EU Member States must put into their National Law compulsory and unlimited third-party liability insurance to cover personal injury between motorsport competitors and car-to-car damage during any competition – from Formula One, MotoGP and World Rally, to karting, historic and grass roots motorsport, whether regulated by the FIA, the FIM or not.
However, such widespread, unlimited new insurance is not currently, and, we understand, will not in the future be available – so motorsport will be unable to continue anywhere in the EU.
Please respond BY 20 OCTOBER to the EC Review Consultation –


By using the simple ‘MIA Response Guidelines’ (which can be downloaded from our website), this will take LESS THAN TEN MINUTES –  a short time commitment to keep motorsport alive, and preserve the jobs it supports.
It is most important that you estimate, if motorsport were to cease, how many jobs will be lost directly from your organisation, and indirectly by your suppliers or the sport, as this significant economic impact will influence the European Commission.
I am sharing this email with my senior contacts across the European motorsport business community.
May I ask that you help our community by sending this email request, and its attachments, to your most influential motorsport business and sporting contacts, urgently please? We need all influential individuals, major teams, suppliers and employers in EU and UK motorsport to act – by working together we can change this.
We must make the European Commission fully aware of the economic importance of motorsport and the employment which our sport and industry provides across the European Union.
An unimaginable situation yet true – fighting such battles for the industry was one of the reasons the MIA was originally created and is pro-actively supported by its members.
If you have any questions or comments then please email me and I will respond immediately – as we must meet the deadline of 20 October.
Thank you  – your immediate help is invaluable and much appreciated.


Best regards
Chris Aylett

Quentin Willson Evening 29th November

We are delighted to confirm that Quentin Willson, TV presenter and motoring pundit has agreed to come and talk to the Club on Wednesday 29 November. We have already booked Whalley Golf Club with usual pie and peas. Tickets costing £10.00, including pie and peas, are available from Eileen Dyson

Many of you will know Quentin Willson as an award-winning motoring journalist and presenter of the Classic Car Show. But he also fronted Top Gear for a decade and writes for numerous national publications, while campaigning tirelessly on behalf of Britain’s motorists.

It will be interesting to hear what he has to say on current motoring issues including the current insurance controversy surrounding the EU ruling which may signal the end of our sport.

Sad News regarding Ted Heath – Update

Eric Heath
It is with sadness that I have to report the death of Eric “Ted” Heath who passed away on the evening of the 22nd August.
Ted was a long serving member of the club who’s specialism in timing came to the fore at speed sprints both in the UK and in the Isle of Man and he was a familiar face in the paddock with his trusty timing vehicle, Samson. He also acted as Clerk of Course on both the Manchester to Blackpool and Coast to Coast Classic Runs as well as officiating in many LAC events.
He assisted Bill Turner as a timekeeper on LAC events and was one of the Club’s stalwarts with a history including Tholt y Will, Woodvale and Longridge. When Bill retired Ted took over the timing gear and continued providing timing services to many clubs in the north west. His team was one of the few capable of carrying out timing duies for 2 lap events at 3 Sisters.
During his time on the committee, he served as Chairman and President and had the honour of being made an Honorary Life President a few years ago.
Funeral arrangements :
Tuesday the 12th September at 1:00pm
The Old School Chapel, Broadstone St, Todmorden. OL14 8AL
Followed by a private cremation and refreshments at Walsden Cricket Club, Scott St, Walsden, Todmorden OL14 7SX
Our condolence go to Ted’s wife, Doris, and his family at this sad time.

St George’s Day Run – FBHVC Drive It Day 2017

Next Event: Sunday 23rd April, 2017.

This event is a Touring Assembly and as such is untimed. Navigation is easy and the event suits newcomers to road events.

Regulations and an Entry Form are now available from Sandra Williams –

Starts and finishes at Blackburn Northern Sports, Pleckgate Drive Blackburn and runs out to Skipton and on to a ‘comfort halt’ at The Duke of Wellington on the Grane Road near Haslingden before returning to Blackburn Northern Sports Club.

Entry fee includes Light breakfast available at Start and Light Refreshments in the Club Lounge where the Bar will be open on return.

Route is some 100 miles with instructions using both simple ‘tulip diagrams’ and written instructions. All entrants receive a Route Book giving full directions, a Route Information book giving interesting facts on places along the route along with a Rally plate.

This event is in support of the FBHVC Drive it day

The Federation of British Historic Vehicles Club urges all owners of licensed historic vehicles to use them on 23 April – every year. The ‘Drive it Day‘ will be a truly national annual event and one that all enthusiasts can take part in wherever they live. It’s absolutely free of entry forms, fees and red tape*. Do make sure your members know about it!

It’s not necessary for owners to go to a show or to take part in an event, FBHVC just wants owners to get their vehicles out so they can be seen by the public. If the vehicle is suitable, it could be used instead of modern transport for daily activity. Owners could use them to go to work take a trip to the seaside, enjoy a day out in the country, visit a stately home or just go shopping.

For those with unlicensed, older, larger or slower vehicles for which such use would be impossible, impractical or inappropriate, owners could at least get them out and park them on the drive where they can be seen.

FBHVC exists to uphold the freedom to use old vehicles. Drive It Day is part of an ongoing campaign to raise public awareness of the historic vehicle movement. “After all,” Tony Beadle (the committee member who came up with the idea) asks, “what’s the point in fighting for a freedom if we don’t make the best possible use of it? “I thought 23rd April would be a singularly appropriate day to choose to celebrate the glorious variety of mechanised road transport heritage that we have in this country because on that day in 1900, 64 cars set out from London on the first day of the famous Thousand Mile Trial – an incredible undertaking by those early motor cars and their pioneering drivers, and one which deserves annual celebration.”

Coast to Coast 2016

Pictures from the start and finish of this years Coast to Coast have been added to the gallery.

The twenty fourth running of this popular event started again from the lovely art deco Midland Hotel in Morecambe and made its way by a wonderful scenic route to Hunley Hall Hotel and Golf Club on the East coast just South of Redcar.

Not blessed by good weather at the start, things became damper as the cars motored their way up the hills to the coffee stop at the Shap Wells Hotel, and then on to the lunch halt at Akebar Park, between Leyburn and Bedale on the A683. Better weather here allowed the crews to enjoy picnics and chats to chums old and new, then off again via the Cleveland Hills and the North York Moors, with all it’s stunning scenery, to the destination to be greeted by the Mayor of Redcar Councillor Barry Hunt, and club officials.

 The routine was then fairly straightforward, park the car, find the bar, and enjoy the excellent buffet. After which there was the presentation of trophies with the following awards being presented. The Mayor’s Trophy to Richard Wilkinson with his Fraser Nash BMW, The Presidents award to Paul Kennady with his Porsche, and a Special award to David Cuff, Event Secretary, who fulfilled his role admirably, in spite of one or two problems. In the evening the weather turned positively tropical! And many of the participants took the opportunity to sit outside to enjoy the odd libation and to admire the wonderful sea views
