Irish Motorsport Support Fund Update

What is the event for?
To raise awareness of all the different element of Irish Motorsport and to fundraise for the Irish Motorsport Support Fund (IMSF).

What is the IMSF?
As a response to the rising cost of insurance and various suggestions received regarding fundraising, Motorsport Ireland invited a group of people to a meeting in Dublin in October 2017. This group agreed to create a fundraising committee to raise funds to help offset financial risks to the sport and in the future, when the situation improves, to support motorsport as deemed necessary by the group.
