MSA Regional Structure / L7C

I'm filling in the application for MSATP 2019 and it asks which Association the club belongs to.

As hard as I look I can't see that L7C is affiliated to any MSA Association.

The choices are:

  • ACSMC
  • AEMC
  • ASEMC
  • ASWMC

Am I missing something?  I belong to another car club which is listed but would prefer to be under L7C.

Hi Tim,

I can't answer your question, but I always join the Sevenoaks & District MC (member of ASEMC) each year, although I invariably only enter the MATP event. If I were you I'd just enter as you have done in the past.

Yup, after pawing through the Blue book got too long I came the the same conclusion. Strange though that L7C aren’t there.

Hope to see you at CP and Gurston.

Strangely enough I can't answer it either, but i've asked the question.

According to the Motorsport UK web site, the Lotus 7 club is an affiliated club.

i don’t think it’s necessary to be in one of the 13 regional associations, and it probably isn’t appropriate for a national/international club.

That was my thought as well but also asked if there is an association of national clubs as there are more than just us in this situation

When I was involved in rallying in my youth, it was common for rallies to be rounds of multiple regional championships, but individual event regulations normally said that the event was open to entries from members of clubs that were affiliated to certain regional associations, and the club that I was a member of was affiliated to at least five different regional associations. It meant that by joining one motor club you were eligible to compete on a wide array of events.

speed events tend to run a little differently, but, if you were an independent competitor, careful selection of the club that you joined may reduce the overall cost of event entries.

Thanks for the explanation Richard.

Just to set the scene, when completing the MATP entry form we're informed:

We have invited the ACSMC, AEMC, ASEMC AND ASWMC to find out if your club is part of these associations please see pages 18,19,24 and 25 of the 2019 MSA Blue Book.

We then have to tick one of the 4 associations and then state which club we belong to in order to continue with the entry

Chris

Your also missing the WAMC  Welsh association.  Unless Motorsport UK have that as ASWMC ?   We used to be listed under the Welsh region due to the Registered office location.  I think I recall unregistering us for some reason but it is too long ago now.  There must have been a reason.

I think joining a National Club group would be the best as the Regional Groups can get a little touchy if you then do not help out locally. That of course is not relevant to our national membership.
