Event Licences

Event Licence  -  £150

There is a restriction of 3 Event Licences per year after which a medical examination will be required.  Should a full licence be applied for then any previous Event licence payments will be deducted from a full licence fee (in the same year).


With all the above licences participants receive 3rd party public liability insurance. Please note the above licences do not include racer-to-racer Personal Accident cover, therefore it is strongly recommended that all racers seek out Personal Accident Cover whilst competing in any JSRA event.
