The problems surrounding Land Access is an issue that everyone associated with motorsport could do without, whether that be Organisers of two wheel or four wheeled sport.
LARA is the motoring organisations’ Land Access and Recreation Association and acts as a national forum for the principal groups in countryside motor sport and recreation.
The ACU is the internationally recognised National Governing Body for motorcycle sport in the British Isles (less Northern Ireland). Formed in 1903, the ACU has a long tradition in the world of motorcycle sport being a founder member of the World Governing Body, the Federation Internationale Motocyclisme (FIM).
The ACU have now upgraded their Membership of LARA to Full Members which means that LARA now have representation over all four User Groups – motorsport / recreation 2 /3 wheels and 4 wheels.
John Collins, Chairman ACU Ltd said “Until recently, the ACU were Associate Members of LARA, however, we have been working very closely with Alan Kind and LARA on a couple of issues which could have had and still may have a wide effect on motorsport in general. Land Access is vital to our Off Road activities and as such we need to put our support where it is required in order to protect Off Road Sport. LARA is an important vehicle to deliver this”.
Andrew Knightly-Brown, Chairman of LARA commented “This is excellent news and I am delighted to have the ACU back on board as a full member. This really adds teeth to the LARA machine and enhances our position across the range of motorsport and recreational activity”.
