Latest news from the King’s Lynn & District Motor Club

2021 Membership

2021 membership renewals are now due and on reflection of what a poor year for motorsport 2020 was due to COVID 19 and the knock on effect this had to running events in our club, the committee have agreed to amend the renewal fee for 2021.  The renewal for any member who was a fully paid member in 2020 will be £7.50 for this year.  For this to be applicable, you need to have been a fully paid member in 2020 and supply a fresh membership form to ensure that your details are up to date.  The same rule will apply to family memberships so this will be £10 for those who joined as a family membership in 2020 and are doing the same for 2021.  Any new applications for 2021 will remain at the £15 subscription fee for single membership and £20 for any new family memberships.   

The membership form is currently being updated to reflect this and once updated it will be sent around to all members as well as being attached to Facebook and the website.

RS Clubman Licence

From January 2020, Motorsport UK will be introducing a requirement for ALL COMPETITORS in Motorsport UK permitted events to hold a Motorsport UK competition licence this is in addition to your club membership. This will be at a minimum, a new RS Clubman licence. This applies to new competitors as well as to anyone previously competing solely with a club membership card. The good news is that this entry-level, RS Clubman licence, will now be free.

This initiative is being introduced by Motorsport UK to encourage participation at grass roots level as well as to ensure that all competitors are covered by comprehensive public liability and personal accident insurance. It replaces the Non-Race Clubman licence, (which in 2019 cost £29). All licence holders will have access to the Member Benefits Programme which provides substantial discounts on well-known brands, products, services, and can contribute to offsetting the cost of competing.

If you have not previously held a Competition licence or not renewed in 2019, it will also be a requirement to apply for a new RS Clubman licence in order to compete or be a passenger in Club events. This is free of charge and applicable to Autotests, Trials, Cross Country and Road Rallying including 12 Cars and Scatters.

Please note: an RS Clubman licence will not required if you plan to renew your current 2019 Competition licence.

You can apply for an RS Clubman licence from the Motorsport UK website from 18 November 2019.

The other major change is that the cost of event permits has been increased to cover the increased cost of insurance for events and provide additional income for our governing body. An across the board increase of £5.00 has been applied to permits, the Club will have no option but to add the sum to all event entry fees from January 2020.
