The SMMC welcomes the news that Transport Scotland has launched a public consultation on proposals to enable motorsport on closed public roads.
Closed-road events help organisers take the sport to new audiences and deliver an economic boost to local hosting communities.
In its consultation, Transport Scotland is seeking views on a possible event application process involving the relevant governing bodies and local authorities. The consultation can be found here and the deadline for responses is midnight on 28 January 2019.
Tom Purves, Chairman of Scottish Motor Sports (SMS), said: "This is an important step on the road back to closed-road motorsport in Scotland. It is now vital that the Scottish motorsport community gets behind this consultation and delivers a clear message of support for these proposals, which would allow us not only to revive world-renowned events but also to take different forms of motorsport to new parts of our country."
