Through our SAFETY DEVELOPMENT FUND we provide financial contributions that aid our community in rolling out safety improvements across all disciplines that comply with Motorsport UK requirements and regulations and providing Rescue Unit Support.
This safety equipment is pivotal in ensuring that the UK remains first class for incorporating the latest and most modern innovations into our motorsport infrastructure that make life easier for marshals and competitors.
The grant received has really helped our club to improve safety around the track (including new safety fencing and barriers to replace wagon tyres) and has created positive feedback from all our competitors. Applying for the grant was easy, and the help given when doing so was faultless.
Any visit to our cliff top circuit on the exposed North coast of Jersey emphasises the importance of proper safety equipment, which is even more relevant when bad weather further adds to the challenges facing event organisers. Thanks to the grant from the BMSTT these problems are many times reduced, with our old heavy and aged catch fencing curtain now replaced with 15 modern safety barriers in softer impact lower density foam. Last minute cancellations are now a thing of the past, and we are grateful to the Trust for their guidance and support. Sincere thanks from the Channel Islands.
With vehicle construction constantly changing through increased use of lighter and stronger materials, we regularly review the capabilities of both ourselves and our Rescue Unit equipment. After recent trialling, we opted for a new inclined cutter as it offered the improvement in operational capability and enhanced ergonomics and handling that we were looking for, and the Trust grant received made this possible for us. As recently as 2018 grant from the BMSTT also enabled us to source a replacement rescue vehicle. This continuing and valued support enables us to operate an efficient and reliable rescue unit capable of meeting the challenges of today and beyond, and thus maintain safety cover at all our events.
