STATEMENT FROM THE AASA TO ALL MOTOR RACING OFFICIALS, STAFF AND COMPETITORS
We get it. The Australian Auto-Sport Alliance (AASA) isn’t the biggest, the oldest or endorsed by the FIA, and we’re okay with that, so are our partners.
But that doesn’t mean we compromise on the quality, knowledge and safety standards of any of our officials, staff or competitors. We might be relatively new kids on the block, but we’ve sanctioned hundreds of events each year around Australia since 2003.
While AASA policies may have minor differences, our coverage has been analysed by independent legal experts from our partners, most recently the Australian Off Road Racing Association, which is satisfied that we meet all their requirements.
All licenced officials participating in AASA events should be assured that they have coverage of an equivalent nature. In fact, many senior AASA officials have other motorsport officials licences as well.
We don’t get licenced by NSW Sport and Recreation if we don’t have the appropriate level of critical incident management protocols, support and advice available.
We also have access to a team of legal professionals to promptly respond to any issues if required.
If officials have any concerns or questions, we welcome and encourage them to contact us direct.
One promoter describes us having “incredibly intense transparency” which is something we’re particularly proud of.
“I’ve seen the way AASA works and the way they licence and permit events and watched their incredibly intense transparency.”
“The AASA gives us security in knowing if anything should go wrong with competitors, staff, people at the track - they’ve got our backs and they can step up and do what they need to, leaving us to deliver great events”
Quote from Jacob Simsonen, promoter 24 Hours of LeMons – March 2017
We’d also like to remind our partners that AASA is owned by Benalla Auto Club, a not-for-profit entity, so ultimately any profits return to motorsport via the Benalla Auto Club.
