Scottish Autotest Championship - Points before the final event

 After some rounds of the Championship were cancelled or postponed we have decided that the Championship counters will now be reduced to 7,

the last round will be the Kames Autotest on Sun. 31st October, which I am sure will be a fitting finale to the 2021 Championship which at one point did not look like it would be possible. As well as the Scottish Championship counter, Gordon Clendinning has organised a Maximum Attack MX5 Challenge, which already has a good entry, even if you are not competing it would be worth the trip to see some of these drivers in action.

The Championship will be decided on the drivers best 4 scores from 7 and as Gordon has scored Maximum points on each round he can not be caught on 128 points, bit it is still undecided who will be runner up as counting their 4 best scores, the current standings are Gary Clark on 115 points, James Morrison on 116 points and Paul Davidson on 117 points, so its all to play for on the final event.

Championship Points



See you at Kames.

Thanks

Bill

Final Round of Scottish Autotest Championship at Kames, 31/10/21

 The 2021 Championship will finish with the Maximum Attack Autotest at Kames on Sunday 21st October.

This promises to be a great event with excellent tests and a decent entry of MX5s already, and I am sure it will be a fitting finale to a much condensed Championship. 

Please support the Kames event with your entries, it will be worth the trip, you will not be disappointed.

The SRs are HERE in the Downloads section of the SAMSC Autotest page

GREEN LIGHT FOR SCOTTISH RALLYING

Great news for rallying in Scotland - the Scottish Government has agreed to drop the rule that only members of the same household could share a car for motorsport. 

This means that rallying, trials, etc can resume almost as normal, but this applies only in areas at Level 3 or below, and there are still requirements, like face coverings in the car, and no spectators. Guidelines issued by Motorsport UK must be followed, an update is expected Friday 14th May  

Read on for more details from Chairman Pete.

SAMSC Scottish Autotest Championship 2021 Starts Sat 15 May

 With the easing of Covid regulations, the 2021 Scottish Autotest Championship gets under way on Saturday 15th May with the Glenrothes MSC Andy Wilson Memorial Autotest at Knockhill.

More details of the Championship, including the Regulations and Registration form, are also on the Autotest Page of the SAMSC site, along with Regulations for the event, which include a link to the online entry form.

Update on Covid19 and Event Resumption in Scotland

 Following the announcement last week that travel within Scotland is now allowed for leisure purposes. the First Minister confirmed on Tuesday that the next stage of relaxing Covid19 restrictions would go ahead as planned with effect from Monday 26th April. I am delighted to confirm that, following formal agreement with Scottish Government, this includes competitive motorsport events running with Motorsport UK permits.

I am however disappointed that, despite strong representation being made, the Scottish Government has not given agreement to allow two competitors in a car which means that rallies and other disciplines with a driver and passenger are still not allowed in Scotland.  Efforts will continue to get some movement on this issue.

An updated version of the Scotland specific guidelines has been agreed and has today been made available on the Covid-19 page of the Motorsport UK website. Clubs intending to organise events should read through all of the available material, not just the Scotland page, to ensure they meet all of the compliance requirements for running a Covid19 safe event. Note in particular that spectators are not allowed and total numbers on site are also limited. These points may change in future phases of easing restrictions. Clubs should also make sure they engage fully with the venues they want to use to make sure they comply with any local requirements which may. Overnight stays are allowed within the guidelines applicable to the hospitality sector.

The team at Motorsport UK, led by John Ryan, have worked very hard to gain approval from Scottish Government to allow out sport to continue and it is incumbent on all of us to follow all of the rules and guideline to show motorsport in a good light.

Regards

Pete Weall

Social Media Marketing webinars for clubs - starting this Tuesday 10 November at 19:00

Tuesday 10th November at 19:00, we have the first of our Monthly Marketing Show webinars in association with ContentCal.

Clubs are always looking for ways in which they can raise awareness of their activities and attract new members, particularly younger ones. It is a fact that social media is now the most effective way of achieving this.

However, simply putting posts on your Facebook page is only the starting point - in order to widen the reach of your social media output you need to utilise many more of the tools at your disposal. The good news is that many of these are free.

 

This series of webinars will teach you how to use these tools effectively, how to put together a content plan, and some simple techniques for reaching interested audiences that may currently be outside of your club's engagement methods.

 

To register, please go to the Club Webinars page on our website here: https://www.motorsportuk.org/clubs-organisers/club-webinars/

 

Regards,

Ian
