Back on track: MSA gets clearance for motorsport re-start

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – Motorsport SA now has permission to resume all MSA-sanctioned motorsport events once suitable arrangements have been made with the relevant event organisers. 

The permission came from the Department of Sport and Recreation after a submission by MSA.

Conditions include restrictions on spectators, the presence at events of a Covid-19 compliance officer, strict cleaning, compulsory face masks and temperature screening of attendees.

‘LOCKDOWN OBLIGATIONS’

Anton Roux, chairman of MSA,, told The Corner in a media release:  “Motor racing is a vibrant sporting code and an important contributor to the livelihood of many businesses and racing venues.
