We welcome Will Stemman to the BSCRA Council, he is BSCRA’s new Safeguarding Officer.    I’m sure he will do an excellent job in this  role.

Will joins the BSCRA Council immediately.   Mark Witham has been Safeguarding Officer since 2015.   Some of the legal responsibilities of the Safeguarding Officer are subject to Motorsport UK approval, so Mark will continue with those responsibilities until Motorsport UK approval for Will to take over comes  through.     Mark of course has been  BSCRA Chairman since 2017 and once the hand over to Will is complete can concentrate solely on that role.
