In Vantage Point, Billy Monger gives his perspective on how motorsport is opening up to allow disabled drivers to demonstrate their talent on equal terms, while Club Corner reveals 750 Motor Club’s new fixed-cost programme which hopes to attract more competitors into the sport.

Motorsport Lifetime Achievement Award for Jonathan Lord








The Board of RSAC Motorsport were delighted to hear that fellow Board member and Secretary, Jonathan Lord is the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from Motorsport UK. This is the highest honour bestowed by the governing body and is presented in recognition of outstanding achievement over many years in the sport.

Jonathan first started with the Royal Scottish Automobile Club in 1976, later becoming Club Secretary and also Company Secretary of RSAC Motorsport from 1989. Today he is of course well known as Clerk of the Course for the RSAC Scottish Rally as well as various other motorsport events across Scotland, also as a Motorsport UK Steward, Safety Delegate and since 1997 Competitor Relations Officer on Rally GB. Behind the scenes though he also undertakes several other motorsport roles including handling Route Authorisations on behalf of the Scottish Government and acting as Route Liaison Officer and Forestry Liaison Officer for Motorsport UK. All of this on top of his busy non-motorsport interests and commitments.

Jonathan, as the Scottish RLO, has provided support and guidance to our club on many occasions, and we join the others in congratulating him on receiving this well deserved award.
 
The Board offers its congratulations to Jonathan and also congratulates the other Lifetime Achievement Award winners and Scots, Jimmy McRae and Sir Jackie Stewart. More information on these and other Motorsport UK awards can be found in the March issue of Revolution
