Touted as the end of motorsport but perhaps good news for the Nordschliefe and other open track days. It may also point to the reason why there have not been any recent cases of British drivers being taken to court over third party fees following wipe outs at the 'Ring'.

"In simple terms, the EC plans to issue a new Motor Insurance Directive, as a result of which all EU Member States must put into their National Law compulsory and unlimited third-party liability insurance to cover personal injury between motorsport competitors and car-to-car damage during any competition – from Formula One, Moto GP, World Rally to karting, historic and grass roots, whether regulated by the FIA or FIM or not.

However such widespread unlimited new insurance is not currently and, we understand, will not in the future be available - so motorsport will be unable to continue anywhere in the EU.

Please respond BY OCTOBER 20th to the EC Review Consultation -https://ec.europa.eu/info/consultations/finance-2017-motor-insurance_en by using the simple ‘MIA Response Guidelines’ which can be downloaded here. This will take LESS THAN TEN MINUTES – a short time commitment to keep motorsport alive, and the jobs it supports, in place."

Ssshhh. The last thing that the forum needs is yet another thread turning into a Brexit slagging match between the same usual suspects... nooo

[But that was the first thought that I had too]

Meanwhile I do remember a conversation that we all had a couple of years ago when our TD insurance went to per-event in Europe speculating that perhaps we had benefitted from a golden period and that escalating costs and prohibitive insurance issues were a sadly inevitable future ...

We shall see where this pans out, but if it doesn't get diluted then it becomes the old adage of where there is a demand, there is a price. But grass roots motorsports and track days across Europe really out to be s***ing bricks at this one because as I see it the best case scenario will still involve fiscal escalation.

I wonder, does this include Formula E and the promotion of electric cars ?

This ( if it ever comes to fruition) will decimate the Car Building Industry in Europe Thumb

As if BREXIT will not do enough damage to that as it stands Grin

The EU is such a wondeful thing, I can`t imagine why we voted BREXIT Question

There will be Millions of jobs lost if this is true thumbsup

Still want to REMAIN Question

Complete and utter nonsense ( which one is used to from the EU ) so will never see the light of day Judge

The UK will become the European hub of global motorsport #gobrexit

In all seriousness, been watching this one closely over the last couple of years, will be interesting to see the solutions both the EU and/or insurance providers come up with.
