Fight Vnuk - The EU Judgement Threatening to Kill UK Motorsport
In the landmark ‘Vnuk’ case, the European Court of Justice ruled in 2014 that the EU’s 2009 Motor Insurance Directive required insurance policies to cover all possible third-party accidents in all places and at all times. In some countries, including the United Kingdom and Ireland, governments had interpreted the law as meaning that it only applies to vehicles driven on public roads, however it is now clear that the judgment means that national laws must be changed to ensure that all mechanically propelled vehicles are insured for third-party losses regardless of type of use, in all places, at any time. This applies to everything from Formula One racing cars, to mobility scooters, to antique trams and everything in-between. Industry experts have already claimed that the risks associated with providing insurance cover to all motorised vehicles mean that they would be prohibitively expensive to insure, thus effectively outlawing all motorsport activities across the United Kingdom. HM Government opened a consultation on Wednesday 21st December with two clear options. First, to pursue the “Comprehensive option” which would involve changing UK motor insurance law to comply with the Motor Insurance Directive as interpreted in the Vnuk judgement. Second, the Government’s preferred “Amended Directive option” which would involve changing UK law on motor insurance to implement the Motor Insurance Directive as amended, should the European Commission pursue its proposal to amend it. While the United Kingdom remains a member of the European Union, the UK is obligated to make this change. We, the undersigned petition HM Government through the Secretary of State for Transport, The Rt. Hon. Chris Grayling, M.P., asking that HM Government under no circumstances implements the 'Vnuk' judgement in a way that encompasses vehicles involved in motor and motorcycle sport activities. www.fightvnuk.co.uk
Petition to Monmouthshire County Council
Bring back Hoggin The Bridge to Chepstow
Hoggin the bridge is a yearly charity event that up until recent years, finished in the town of Chepstow. It attracts thousands of bikers for the day with many spectators and supporters. It now finishes at Chepstow race course and has caused a massive impact on small and local businesses in the town centre and not having as many spectators. All local businesses continue to put huge effort to the event and feel it's only fair they are part of the special day they have supported for so long, not to mention making Chepstow a better day out for bikers and the people that support the cause

An end to mx bike and quad theft , and tough sentences for those caught!
As mx/ enduro riders we are fed up of bikes and quads being stolen on a daily basis from homes, units and from the tracks we race and ride at! We want stronger more aggressive action from police forces and much tougher sentencing for those thieves caught. A slap on the wrist is simply not enough, it does not make up for the thousands of pounds lost by hard working people who put everything into the sport. We want to se serious sentencing and fines, and more care given towards bike and quad theft. I was lucky this time, but like most others won't be next time. Its about time bike theft was taken seriously

Add zig zag lines to the area outside Rogers convenient store and lower the speed down Ness Road
Only 10 days ago my dad aged only 48 was killed in a tragic motorbike accident down shoebury ness road. This is Due to people parking out side of Rogers the convenience store and because of that my dad wasn't able to have been seen. There are double yellow lines there for a reason and no one takes notice of them and because of that my dad was killed! Somthing needs to be done now my dad lost his life due to this and this isn't the first accident that has happened down there! There are school kids who are always around that area and it is a very busy place for all sorts of vehicles and also the pedestrians.
