Consultation description

This document seeks views on a proposal to permit motor sports events, including stage rallies, hill climbs and trials of speed, on public roads in certain circumstances. At present it is a criminal offence to promote or take part in a race or trial of speed between motor vehicles on a highway.

The proposal is to give local authorities the powers to suspend speed limits and associated traffic regulations, in certain conditions. The proposal would bring benefits to the motor racing industry and to local communities. Subject to the agreement of the Scottish and Welsh governments on matters within their legislative competence, the proposal would have effect throughout Great Britain.
