Licence levies to be removed for 2019!

Motorsport Ireland are pleased to confirm that levies will be removed from all licences applied for from January 1st 2019. The move, which will see more than €250,000 filter back into the pockets of licence holders, is part of a more streamlined approach to licencing which will see reductions in the cost of all clubman and junior licences. Clubman licences will drop in price by almost 50% from €110 to €60, and a clubman category licence will now incorporate Autocross events up to 1650cc. Junior licences are also to be reduced by almost 10% to just €50. Coupled with this, there will be a “renew as previously held” option on renewal forms, which have also been redesigned, to help simplify the licence renewal process.

Speaking about the announcement, Motorsport Ireland President John Naylor expressed his delight at the decision saying; “The removal of the licence levy for 2019 along with a licencing structure that will stimulate grassroots competitors is an important step for the organisation. I am sure that this move will put us on a solid footing heading into the new year and represent a period of renewed growth for Motorsport Ireland.” Leo Hassett, Motorsport Ireland CEO added; “The licence levy, was proving a barrier to people getting out and competing. With an improved insurance deal for 2019, the removal of the levy is a key building block to renewed growth for our sport in 2019."

2019 Motorsport Ireland first time/renewal licence forms, IRDS/BRDS forms and 2019 official licence forms are all now available on www.motorsportireland.com and will be posted out to competitors in the coming days.
