BBAC Committee Update 19/11/2019:

Please read the attached information from Motorsport UK. As we approach the end of the year this needs your urgent attention.

From 1st January 2020 EVERY club member who is going to take part in ANY event, even a 12 car or scatter, will need a Motorsport UK licence.

If you are planning to enter an event in January or the early part of the year it would be beneficial if you could apply for your licences in good time, online, before the event to avoid hold ups at signing on. For a very short time competitors will be able to apply for this licence on the day by completing a hard copy form and attaching a photo.

It is the competitors responsibility to obtain their licence. If you are only taking part in our 12-Car events then the free Clubman license is all you need! Application takes 2 minutes at:
