Motor vehicle sports regulation

The Office of Sport issues licences under delegation of the Minister for Sport, authorising the holding of motor vehicle race meetings at prescribed grounds.

Licences are issued for a period of up to 12 months pursuant to the Motor Vehicle Sports (Public Safety) Act 1985  and the Motor Vehicle Sports (Public Safety) Regulation 2015.

Applications must be made to motorsport@sport.nsw.gov.au or Locked Bag 1422 Silverwater NSW 2128 on the approved application form and include all required documentation.  

Applicants must allow at least 6 weeks for the application to be assessed and a licence issued or the application refused.

Licences may be renewed if a duly made application, including all required documents, are submitted to the Office of Sport before the licence expiry date.

Renewal applications will be sent to licensees 8 weeks prior to the licence expiry date.
 

Review of the Motor Vehicle Sports (Public Safety) Act 1985

The Office of Sport is reviewing the NSW Motor Vehicle Sports (Public Safety) Act 1985 (the MVSPS Act) and we would like to hear your views. 

We have had initial discussions with key stakeholders on their views on the existing regulatory program and possible changes to improve the regulation of the motor sport industry. 

A consultation paper has been prepared to explore the issues raised during consultations, challenges for the effective operation of the industry and options for improving the legislation. This paper is complemented by a survey open to the public, distributed to stakeholders and available to complete below.

Written submissions should be to the Office of Sport at motorsportreview@sport.nsw.gov.au on the issues raised in this paper and other matters of relevance.

The closing date for both written submissions and completed surveys is Friday 29 November 2019. 

The consultation paper and the survey explore the issues raised during consultations, challenges for the effective operation of the industry, and options for improving the legislation.
