Motorsport in Danger!!

We have recieved the following:

The following message has been sent by Chris Aylett to all members of the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA).

Make no mistake – unless we act NOW, the VNUK ruling will close all motorsport businesses.

I urgently need your help and that of your colleagues and employees.

Please take a look at to understand our campaign to secure a simple change in the wording of the EU’s proposed Motor Insurance Directive (MID).
We must persuade MEPs and Ministers to change the wording of the MID before 27 November — just a few weeks away!
The MIA was founded with the objective to ‘promote and protect the motorsport industry’. As an MIA member, you are part of this collective movement to save our industry and jobs. A proportion of your MIA subscription has funded our work on VNUK over the past three years and is currently supporting the only European – wide effort raising awareness of this threat to all businesses in motorsport.


After two intense weeks, our campaign in five languages has reached nearly 100,000 Europeans but we are doubling our efforts.
Our message is starting to be discussed by a few MEPs in Brussels, but we need many more to be aware of this –YOU can help, please. Now is the time for the whole European motorsport industry to get behind our clear message and make Brussels hear our voice.
Please contact ALL the motorsport contacts you know in EU companies, suppliers, and media, direct them to the MIA website  and ask them to ACT NOW. All information needed, such as FAQs, letter templates and MEP contact details, are on this web page.
The MIA represents the needs of our sector and we can only do that with the support of our members. The more members we have, the better equipped we are to do this work – so please encourage non – MIA members to join us, we really need their support now so we can keep fighting on your behalf.
Thank you for your help – let’s work together and win this challenging race!
Yours sincerely,
Chris Aylett
Chief Executive of the MIA
