Just another example of EU bureaucrats finding work to justify their existence.

Too many very rich people in the business to let anything happen.

Exactly. People like us signing petitions will do nothing. Money talks and it will

Its just a total none story though? 

 

If they create a need for 3rd party insurance then insurance companies will fill the void. If you have ever been T Bones on track you might think its actually a good idea?

The basic issue is that the insurance companies are not geared up for it. Imagine how much an insurance policy for a race car would cost.

If theres a sniff of an opportunity for insurance companies the market will be flooded with options . Motorsport is too big not just in the UK but all over Europe theres no way member states will allow anything that seriously puts in in jeopardy.

Can't see it bothering the top tiers, it's the Grassroots stuff that will suffer.

Next thing will be a waiver if your race car runs on electric or sesame seeds or some sh1t. Sorry, I found an opportunity to moan about the green agenda colliding with motorsport. :)
