For all those in Motorsport thinking of getting into it.
See below for some new rules.


It has come to light that a number of MSNZ Affiliated Car Clubs have, and are still, allowing participation in ClubSport events which breaches the following rule:
MotorSport Manual 36, Schedule C, Article 5.3 - All competitors of a ‘purpose built vehicle’ are required to hold a valid MotorSport NZ competition licence of M Grade or higher.
As per Schedule A , Part One, Article 1.2: Interpretations: “Purpose built vehicle” means a vehicle that; Has a safety cage fitted, that is not equipped as standard on all production examples of the vehicle, or The construction of which prevents its use on public roads”
This means that a vehicle with a safety cage/rollbar, even though homologated by MSNZ, cannot be used in competition by someone who does not hold a valid M Grade competition licence or higher. Those who obtain a Temporary M Grade licence (known as a Day Licence) do not qualify.
This is a change which was introduced with the publication of Manual 36 on 20 August 2018. It is highly recommended that all clubs, officials and competitors familiarise themselves with these changes. Text changes from the previous issue are highlighted in each of the Schedules.
Also a reminder that physical licence cards still need to be checked on event. Another change implemented in Manual 36 is a penalty for a valid licence holder to compete without being able to provide a copy of their card or valid temporary licence letter.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact the MotorSport NZ Office on 04 815 8015 or email admin@motorsport.org.nz.

Hi People MotorSport NZ have set up some guidelines for using Social Media for events.

MSNZ Social Media Policy 2019 Last Updated: 7 March 2019

SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY

GUIDELINES FOR THE USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA

To be referred to in conjunction with the MotorSport NZ Social Media Policy
1. Mobile devices and social media should not be used while officials are on duty.
Your attention should always be to your officiating duties. Save the internet for your break or the end of the day.

2. Put yourself in the other person’s shoes.
Take a moment to think before you post. If it was you someone was posting a picture or comment about, how would you feel?

3. Once it’s out there, it’s out there.
Never assume that something you post online is private. Comments, photos, statuses can all be copied, shown to friends, screen captured and saved or sent on by others. Always assume the person you are posting about will see your post.

4. If in doubt, leave it out.
If you have to stop and think about it, it probably means you should not be posting it! Remember, your online presence is part of your personal brand. What you say and do online affects how people perceive you.

5. Social media should not be used to make disparaging or negative remarks about competitors, officials, volunteers, event organisers, promoters or MotorSport NZ.
There can be serious consequences for misuse of social media. If you have an issue that needs resolving, there are appropriate channels through which you can do this. If you need advice on how to resolve an issue, call MotorSport NZ on 04 815 8015.

6. Never post photos or comments about a motorsport incident.
It is vitally important that we all respect the privacy of individuals involved in accidents or incidents, whether on or off track. Never, ever post photos, comments or information on social media or other online forum about an accident or incident. Remember point 2: Put yourself in their shoes.

7. Use social media as a tool to promote and encourage the development of our sport.
Social media is an amazing platform if used responsibly and for a positive purpose. Use it to promote events, clubs, activities and membership. Use it to spread the word about our great sport and keep it positive!

These are points worth considering.

Many thanks Bernie (Club MSNZ Rep)
Bernie Kant
