    Important Announcement from the Committee

    The committee has reviewed the new license requirements and increased fees introduced by the MSUK.

    The MSUK currently issue the permits and provide the insurance cover for our events, there are currently 12 governing bodies that can issue permits, the ALRC are one of these, they are looking onto the feasibility and cost of issuing permits themselves to ALRC member clubs.

    But this will not be in place for 2020.

    This year the cost of the permit from MSUK has been £4.85 per driver per event, from January 2020 the MSUK are increasing the permit by £5.00 to £9.85 per driver per event.

    The MSUK are also changing the licensing rules for all driver and passenger over the age of 18, for anyone to compete in a permitted event will need to apply for and produce at signing on a RS clubman License this license is free it did cost £29.00 for 2019, this license will allow you to enter in all ALRC events.

    There are a small number of club members who may need to apply for the RS interclub license (used to be national B) this will cost £69.00 each.

    In addition to the permit fee increase the cost of land has also increased over the last few years, our cheapest sites are now £300.00 per day and our most expensive site is in the region of £1350.00 per day.

    To put this in context to enable us to break even on our cheapest site with an entry of fee of £20.00 we need 30 entrants. During 2019 we have struggled to get an average of 10 entrants.

    Obviously, the club cannot sustain that level of loss indefinitely. So from January 2020 the trial fee's will be:

    RTV - £30.00

    Tyro Adult - £30.00

    Tyro junior (under 18) - £20.00

    These costs will be reviewed throughout 2020 depending on the number of entrants per event.
