Getting Involved > Start Racing

If you're interested in racing in the UK then you need to be a member of an MSA sanction club, such as the SMRC. For information on how you can become a member of the SMRC please visit the membership pages.

Practically anyone can go racing although if you want to race competitively at club events such as SMRC events you will need to register for the ARDS course.

The ARDS National B test includes the following:

  • Welcome introduction
  • Tuition video
  • Briefing - what to expect at your first race, safety issues and the ARDS course details
  • Written tests
  • A 30 minute circuit driving evaluation
  • De-brief

This test is available to sit at Knockhill Racing Circuit so please contact them for more details.
