Motorsoprt Australia has extended the expiration dates of certain licence types to compensate for our inability to put them to use during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Motorsport Australia President Andrew Papadopoulos said “We are certainly very keen for motorsport to return, but we are currently in somewhat of a holding pattern as we wait for things to improve,”
“As such, over recent weeks, our administration has been working out the best solution for our licence holders, in consultation with State Councils and clubs, and have determined that those with national and clubman licences will automatically have their licences extended as outlined.”
