The insurance issue that prevented the closed road stage rally from running in 2017 still exists and it is our understanding that the only way that we can run in the future is to use the new closed road legislation recently enacted in England.
The Scottish Government need to enact it into law in Scotland for us to use it. Any representation made to the government so far has been met with “not until after the FAI has concluded”. Sheriff Maciver published his report on the Snowman/Jim Clark Fatalities on the 21 November and we have already been in touch with Michael Russell MSP to urge him to make representations on behalf of the Mull Rally in an attempt to run in 2018.
We understand the need for you to know what is happening so that you can make plans and we undertake to update you on progress by the end of January as to what kind of event or events we shall be able to put on in October.
