Off Road Clubs Create New Management Structure and Select New Sanctioning Body for Off Road Racing in Australia
In a release received today, the newly formed Australian Off Road Management Group are excited to announce that a number of key clubs in the discipline of off road racing have combined in a united effort to create a working group to see that the spor
The Group will be assisted by AASA as their sanctioning body for 2017. The Group engaged the services of an independent sports lawyer to assess the insurance policy that AASA can provide. The report indicated that the AASA is very capable of handling the Off Road Racing discipline in Australia and the Group are satisfied with the insurance and administration structure that AASA can provide competitors and organising clubs. The clubs that are currently committed to this change are:
Millicent Sand Buggy Club
Griffith Off Road Club
Goondiwindi Motorsport Association
Sunraysia Motor Sport Club
Waikerie Riverland Off Road Association
There are a number of other clubs that are considering the move but have not yet had their club meetings to make their decision.
A key factor in the decision of the group to move is to give Off Road Racing greater control of the sport with its own management board making the decisions in consultation with the clubs and competitors that choose to run under the AASA.
Another key factor in the move is that AASA permits and promotes the use of a larger range of apparel standards along with more competitive licencing and permit fees that will be passed on to competitors and event organisers.
There will be more detailed information to come in the next few days.
