As a member of both MSA and the ALRC we are bound to run our events (and to some degree the club itself) by the regulations laid down by these organisations and as a club, we are actively involved in the management of these regulations to ensure they remain relevant to our needs. They are there to support us, not hinder.
The Association of Land Rover Clubs (ALRC) Southern Rover Owners Club is one of many regional Owners club with an interest in Rover / Land Rover products. The ALRC is the national
organisation to which most of them belong giving a common set of vehicle regulations and access to some of the premier Off Road events across the country such as the Majors Memorial Trial, the ALRC National Rally, the Baskerville Challenge, the Charity RTV Trial etc. this also allows members from other clubs to come along to our own 2-Day CCV Trial.
The Motor Sports Association (MSA) is recognised as the sole motor sport governing body for the United Kingdom by the world governing body, the Federation Internationale de L’Automobile (FIA).
As the governing body, the MSA is responsible for the governance and administration of all major forms of motor sports in the UK and is therefore the highest authority in the country for motorsport matters.

Subsequent to the consultation the ALRC undertook last year regarding the vehicle regulations, a working group from various parts of the country have been undertaking a re-write to try and reflect the responses they received. The first stage of this to be publicised are a draft set of RTV vehicle regulations. The basic idea is to have Standard and Modified vehicles as we have at present, but also to allow vehicles with more extreme modifications – Super Modified for want of a better name. Based on this, the new regulations have been drawn up.
The ALRC are seeking comment and feedback on these draft reg’s, ideally in person at the next meeting of the Scrutineering and Off Road Committee to be held at NFU Mutual in Tiddington on 21st November 2015. For those that can’t attend I can collate any responses and take them to the meeting, please email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or use a good old fashioned pen and paper and let me have them at an event.
Please remember – if you do nothing you can’t complain if there is something you don’t like. It may not be particularly light reading, but this is your chance to speak up and have your say.
PS:- Please don’t shoot the messenger!!!
